Are There Franchises For Retired People Or Retirees ?

According to our research we could not find any specific franchises that were just being marketed to retirees or retired people only. However, its evident in the news that in the wake of the current economic downturn many recent retirees are seeking out of necessity to start a new career or business opportunity to replenish their depleted retirement accounts or supplement their current income. In fact, according to a recent article in the retirement section of the NY Times, the number of self-employed people ages 55 to 64 is growing rapidly climbing over 50% from 2000 to 2007. So it would not be surprising to see the development of business opportunities and franchises that are marketed specifically to retired people.
