1. Real estate and property management 

When financial markets start to suffer and crash, real estate becomes a safe-haven investment. Plus, people always need a place to live! As the home market ramps up, pitch the Real Estate industry a branding campaign.

2. Health services 

Healthcare is one of few recession-proof industries. People need medical care. From dentistry, optometry or urgent care and inpatient services, small health clinics across every area of practice are a smart bet when the economy begins to hurt.

3. Food stores and grocery services 

Food stores and grocery services see consistent business throughout recessions because people cut costs and stay home to eat. This trend is especially true among stores with a good mix of fresh and prepackaged foods.

5. Education and day care

Recessions tend to see more people working multiple jobs or frequently searching for new employment. As a result, they lean more heavily on day care and education services in both part- and full-time capacities. Childcare is a lucrative industry in any climate, but especially so in times of recession.

6. Repair industry and renovations

When times get tough, more people shift into the mindset of “fix” or “repair,” as opposed to buying new. They want to make their items last longer. From iPhones to homes, clothing to furniture, repair-focused businesses see a big uptick in business during a recession.

7. Information Technology (IT) services

IT is a sector that hasn’t always been around during recessionary periods; however, it’s a safe investment. Especially today, during the rise of remote work and digital services, IT services are always in-demand and an ever-present need.

8. Pet retail and care services

People love their pets and would do anything to keep them happy and healthy. This is even more true among Millennials and Gen Z pet owners. Even during a recession, people will pay to pamper their pets: from food and treats to toys, comfort items, and practical accessories.
