We hear a lot of companies claiming to offer the best franchises opportunities, but what are the worst franchise opportunities? Our recent post 15 Worst Franchises by SBA Loan Defaults listed the franchise concepts with the highest rate of SBA loan defaults for 2008.
The Super Suppers franchise was listed as the 3rd worst. According to Katie Adams of Investopedia:
3. Super Suppers
At the height of the market, working families expanded their spending to include luxuries such as cleaning services, lawn services and even assemble-your-own dinner services. Super Suppers jumped on the concept and its franchise growth was exponential between 2005 (40), to 2006 (152), and 2007 (206). However, the growth stalled with no new franchise owners coming on board in 2008, and existing owners with SBA loans began failing at a quick pace – 42%, to be exact, in 2008.
The high default rate for Super Suppers – and the rest of the dying “Meal Prep” segment – is no surprise. We’ve been discussing this doomed franchise concept from the beginning:
