Older entrepreneurs are increasingly seeking second careers with franchises. This article from Reuters looks at the trend of older workers laid off or taking buyouts as a result of downsizing or mergers who, having difficulty finding work, strike out on their own as franchise owners. Many, says the article, have greater experience and resources than other younger franchisers when starting their new businesses.

Now wouldn't that be fun "driving a souped-up party van from house to house, as fun-frenzied kids scramble inside to play Xbox and Wii, and jump at the chance to roll around in giant, child-sized hamster balls". Sounds like there all sorts of franchises out there. Definitely worth looking into.
