U.S. Added 16,520 Franchise Jobs in January, According to ADP National 
Franchise Report(SM) 
Franchise Restaurant Job Gains Weaken 
ROSELAND, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 02/19/14 --  U.S. private-sector
franchise jobs increased by 16,520 during the month of January 2014,
according to the ADP National Franchise Report(SM). Broadly
distributed to the public each month free of charge, the ADP National
Franchise Report measures monthly changes in franchise employment
derived from ADP's actual transactional payroll data. The report is
produced by ADP(R), a leading global provider of Human Capital
Management (HCM) solutions, in collaboration with Moody's Analytics,
Inc. and is published by the ADP Research Institute(R). 
"During the month of January, franchises created 16,520 new jobs,
less than half the number created in December 2013," said Ahu
Yildirmaz, senior director of the ADP Research Institute. "Although
still a net contributor with ten consecutive months of strong gains,
job creation among franchise restaurants weakened notably in January
compared to prior months. In fact, our data shows that last month's
franchise restaurant gains were significantly lower than the monthly
average posted over the past 12 months," Yildirmaz added.
