Since the release of the 2015 Nielsen report, Millennials have been labeled the “green generation” setting the landscape for consumer trends to come in the following years. According to the report, Millenials prioritize sustainability when thinking through a purchase and are even willing to pay more if a sustainable company makes the product. It is no secret Millennials have stepped in to the consumer spotlight and, as a result, businesses have been going green themselves in order to match consumer needs.
In 2019, franchising concepts are no exception as we are beginning to see sustainable franchises more and more. Here at Fish Consulting, we are proud to service several environmentally-friendly clients including:
