Pottstown, PA (PressExposure) November 17, 2009 -- United Franchise Connection has been recognized by StartupNation as a Top Ten business in its 2009 Home Based 100 competition under the category of Recession Busters.
Many of the StartupNation Home-Based 100 submissions revealed that business owners are bucking the current economic downturn and finding business success in these tight times. Historically some of todayâs most well known businesses started in a downturn, including Microsoft and General Electric.
âThe 2009 ranking shows that the home-based business is more relevant than ever. The current recession has spurred a new wave of home based businesses as a response to loss of jobs, the need for supplemental income and the sheer passion for blazing your own trail and running your own show,â said Rich Sloan, co-founder of StartupNation.com, one of the leading small business networking and advice websites. âHome based businesses are the biggest block of all businesses in existence and we expect numbers to grow ever greater as extra bedrooms, kitchen tables, basements and garages become host to the innovative thinking and pursuit of success by millions of Americans.â
John Henning, the owner of United Franchise Connection, stated âI am ecstatic; I never expected to win a Top 10 Award in this large of a contest, considering there were literally 10âs of 1000âs of applicants! This is pretty exciting!â
The StartupNation Home-Based 100 highlights 10 top-ten lists making it not just your ordinary business ranking. From the wackiest, to the most innovative, to the savviest in social media â this unique and diverse list highlights the home-based businesses that usually go unrecognized, but still play a vital role in the economy today. MSN publishes the ranking as well in an editorial collaboration with StartupNation. The ten categories for 2009 include:
* Recession Busters * Savviest in Social Media * Most Innovative * Boomers Back in Business * Greenest * Yummiest * Wackiest * Highest Vote-Getters * Most Slacker-Friendly * Most Glamorous
United Franchise Connection was selected from among thousands of contestants by a StartupNation judging panel, which issues the ranking results annually in the November.
