"Despite the crisis, growth of the franchise sector remains positive. In the first quarter of 2015 it recorded a 9.2% growth, compared to the same period last year, according to ABF (the Brazilian Franchising Association),” said the company.

Self-employment now represents 19.5% of all occupations in Brazil’s main cities - its highest level in eight years, according to the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE).
