Restaurants fueled a 27,910 rise in franchise jobs in June, according to a report released Wednesday by a national payroll processor.
About 75% of private-sector franchise jobs added last month were from restaurants, the ADP National Franchise Report found. It’s an increase over the 19,160 jobs added in May.
“Restaurants can be credited for the majority of the growth and are followed by, to a lesser extent, gas stations [and] auto repair shops, business services and accommodations,” Ahu Yildirmaz, senior director of the ADP Research Institute, said in a statement.
Gas stations and auto repair shops added 2,750 jobs, business services added 1,360 jobs and accommodations added 1,250 jobs.
The leisure industry -- amusement parks, gambling and golf courses -- lost 790 jobs in June. About 520 jobs were lost in the personal services industry, which includes hair and dental care. And Real estate lost 400 jobs, according to the analysis.
