Private sector franchise jobs increased by 28,800, or 0.3 percent month over month, led by restaurants and auto parts and dealers. In May, they rose by 14,720.
"Franchise employment in June bounced back to a level exceeding the 12-month average of job gains," Ahu Yildirmaz, vice president and head of the ADP Research Institute said in a statement. "Both restaurants and auto parts and dealers added jobs at a pace well above the previous month's totals."
