From a pre-teen manning a lemonade stand to a seasoned professional launching a global company, entrepreneurs of every age are driven to realize their business dreams. This reality is particularly true when it comes to franchise ownership.

Some individuals align with a franchise company right after high school or college, while others decide to exit retirement to try something new. The takeaway is that because franchise ownership is powered by a national brand that provides resources and support at any stage of one’s career, there’s no “right age” to start a franchise. At Sam the Concrete Man, a residential and commercial concrete service provider founded in 1989, we see this every day because our owners represent a range of ages, from Generation Z to baby boomers.
