Houston, Texas Becoming a Hub for Franchise Growth

According to the February 21, 2014 Houston Business Journal article by Mark Yost, there are no doubts how hot Houston is as a franchise market. Reliant Center was chosen as the location for the 2014 Franchise Expo South earlier this month.

Patterson Construction is also noticing the trend of tenants requesting services for franchised ground up construction and finish outs. We are currently under construction on several franchised locations, and January was a big month for Pre-Construction planning on several projects. This trade show has long been held in Miami, but with the majority of the investors interested in opportunities in one of the fastest growing markets in the nation they changed the location to Houston. “Franchise Expo South’s move from South Florida to Houston was a strategic decision to build on the market’s growing economic momentum,” said Tom Portesy, president of MFV Expositions, producers of Franchise Expo South. “As one of the best cities in America for business, Houston will play a key role in the continuous development of the franchise industry.”

Houston will also be a hot topic at the International Franchise Association meeting Feb. 22-25 in New Orleans.

At Patterson Construction we look forward to assisting in this exciting expansion into the Houston, and surrounding markets. Here are a few franchises PCS has been responsible for so far in 2014
