ATLANTA – April 29, 2020 – Today, BizCom Associates launched the inaugural issue of The Franchise 100, a monthly publication reaching the inboxes of people interested in the business of franchising, with news and information for current franchise owners and those looking to buy in. Plano, Texas-based BizCom Associates’ new digital venture includes a eNewsletter, featuring 100-word stories and videos, and a website. The Franchise 100 was created in partnership with international publishing network The 100 Companies.
“When we were approached by the 100 Companies with this opportunity, we didn’t hesitate,” said BizCom co-founder and CEO Scott White. “For decades franchising has offered one of the greatest ways to build personal wealth, but it is not for everyone. The Franchise 100 gives us an effective way to capitalize on emerging publishing platforms to serve as a resource for those interested in franchising.”
Readers of The Franchise 100 will enjoy 100-word stories and videos about entrepreneurs who have built successful franchise businesses, becoming their own bosses and contributing to their local economies. From stories about current industry trends to the changing legal landscape, we’ll tell readers what they need to know as they research, evaluate and decide on becoming a franchise owner.
“We’ve been talking with Scott White and BizCom Associates for several months and are eager to see the impact of The Franchise 100 on this growing industry sector,” said Chris Schroder, founder and president of The 100 Companies. “For more than two decades, BizCom has represented many of the most well-known franchisors as well as hot young startups. Their team includes industry academic thought leaders, so they will offer highly qualified content. This newest brand joins our expanding family of digital content marketing brands, serving PR firms and their clients, municipal governments and industry experts.”
With its launch, The Franchise 100 becomes the 25th market to join The 100 Companies, an award-winning digital network and content marketing platform. It will provide access to a circulation of nearly 1.3 million when The Franchise 100 articles appear in all 24 of The 100 Companies’ publications.

Additional members include, The East Bay 100, a governmental publication, and successful industry verticals The Travel 100, The Association 100 and The Engineering 100.
