Abstract Franchise chains account for $90 billion a year in sales-10 percent of Canada's gross domestic product and employing over one million Canadians. Even in an economic downturn, franchising is a reliable business. Experts predict that people eager to create their own jobs in a time of uncertainty are more attracted to a proven concept. Follow Amanda and Chris Collucci as they try to sweep the world off its feet with their housekeeping franchise concept, Clean4Me. They're pushing hard for $300,000 in investment to get their franchise package off the ground.
