      Newbie to Wholesale Business - How to find Industry with the highest number of Privately Owned Businesses?

      Hi,

      Currently, I'm catching the fact that smart wholesalers I know are making big money by importing products that have a few elements.

      -They are in niche/high demand businesses which seem "boring" to most entrepreneurs
      -They are selling B2B
      -They use mostly cold calling to gain clients.
      -They stock thousands of sku's

      But it seems as more and more franchises are coming out and killing small businesses. These opportunities are dying. One example is: Supplying privately owned pool supply stores. But as more and more franchises kills these businesses, there is less pool stores to sell. Another example, could be supplying plumbing supply stores with all of their products.

      How can I do research to find out what small businesses are still strong and alive, not being diminished by franchises who could be a potential store to distribute a wide array of products?

      Thanks.

      How about the reverse approach? Search franchise directories, and verify which segments haven't been covered yet?
