Our list of the newest franchises is proof that a creative approach succeeds in even the toughest times

Given the economic turmoil of the last couple of years, many are understandably preaching caution now that the clouds are finally starting to part. Don't tell that to the companies on our list of new franchises, though. All the bad news and naysaying of the last couple of years hasn't stopped any of them from forging ahead with their plans to become the nation's next big franchise. And if they can find franchisees with as much guts and gusto as they have, they just might succeed.

There's no shortage of creative concepts here to attract those franchisees. Take Huntington School Services, for instance. This new concept from the franchisor of Huntington Learning Centers takes advantage of the billions of dollars in federal funding provided by the No Child Left Behind Act to offer tutoring to underprivileged students. Huntington School Services franchisees don't require a retail facility, which makes their investment significantly lower than what they would pay to open a learning center.

Also looking to work with schools to improve the lives of students is Wholesome Tummies. Founded by Debbie Blacher and Samantha Gotlib, two South Florida moms who were frustrated with the quality of school lunches, the company and its franchisees deliver healthful, organic meals directly to children at participating schools.

There's also been an abundance of new franchises aimed at pet owners in the last couple of years, and it's no wonder. The pet industry is one sector that continues to grow in spite of the economy, with spending topping $45.5 billion last year, according to the American Pet Products Association. One of the latest franchisors looking to cash in is Adventure Pet, which puts a twist on traditional dog-walking services by taking dogs on "field trips" that might just make their owners jealous.

These and the 60 other companies listed here took the plunge into franchising in either 2009 or 2010. If you'd like to jump in with them, be sure to do your homework first. This list is not a ranking or an endorsement of any particular company. It's just a first step on your journey to becoming a franchisee, which should include reading the company's Franchise Disclosure Document, talking to current franchisees and consulting with an attorney and an accountant.

About Loop Ventures LLC:
Loop Ventures LLC was founded in the summer of 2007 by Chad Hanysh and Justin Herman. Their goal was to create an interactive golf scorecard that would enhance the golf course experience. They also wanted to offer an "added-value" scorecard for golf courses and offer local businesses with a new advertising vehicle to reach an attractive niche consumer - the high-discretionary income golfer.

Today, as the only franchised golf marketing company in America, MyLoopCard offers a turnkey business system for those that want to own their own business. The franchise includes a 3-step training program, operations manual, sales and marketing handbook, scorecard production and printing, and a complete on-going support program.

In addition, MyLoopCard has a sister website called for golfers to record and track their rounds of golf. The site offers tips and advice for the golfers to improve their game.
