Keep reading to find out more.

What Is a Recession-Resistant Industry?

Industries that are recession-resistant are typically those that provide essential goods or services and, as such, are not as vulnerable to outside influences, pressures, trends, and so forth. Industries that cater to basic needs like food, water, clothing, and utilities are all good examples. Looked at another way, these industries either provide an absolute necessity the public will always keep needing and buying, or they see demand rise due to whatever challenging conditions the economy may be under.

The services of an auto maintenance franchise like Big O Tires will almost always remain in demand, no matter what’s going on in the economy, because people will always need their cars to get them places. As a Big O franchisee, you’ll be able to offer your community a valuable suite of auto services they can turn to, time and time again. You’ll also be able to count on our regular expert in-house marketing that will put your franchise in front of your best customer.
