During the past year, we learned that working from home is a viable option for many Americans. As businesses shut their physical doors and operated remotely, “home-based” became the new norm.
What happens if you get bit by the entrepreneurial bug, but want to continue working from the comfort of your home?
That’s easy! Just look at one of the many home-based franchise opportunities available to those who want to become business owners.
Compared to starting a business from scratch, a franchised business affords many advantages:
- A known brand
- Marketing support
- A proven process
- Training and ongoing support
- And much more!
Combine those advantages with the ability to work from home, and you have a winner!
But what type of franchises are home-based?
Just like traditional opportunities, home-based franchise options are plentiful. Chances are you can find one that is a perfect fit for you. Here are just a few of the industries that you can choose from.
Home Maintenance and Repair
Every homeowner needs help caring for their abode. Everything from minor repairs to lawn care, the list is almost endless. And the good news is that there are franchise opportunities for almost all those needs.
There are also many options when it comes to carpet and furniture cleaning, painting, and maid services. Need blinds for the windows? There is a franchise option. How about power-washing or pest and mosquito control? Check.
There are also franchise choices if you would like a green business. That’s right…you can own a business that makes money and is friendly to the environment.
So, take your pick because the choices in this category are plentiful!
Do you have a passion for helping people? No one group needs assistance more than our nation’s elderly.
There are many franchise opportunities available which allow you to help seniors in the comfort of their own home. This is an option that helps them and also gives their loved one’s peace of mind. It is an ever-growing industry looking for entrepreneurs to take the lead.
Do you love the world of tech? Do like the thought of helping other businesses with the services they need? There are too many home-based tech franchises to count!
Businesses need billing experts and software masters, who can help them with their network. They also need help maintaining their computers and systems.
Businesses also need professionals who can help them with their websites (everything from designing to maintaining), as well as assistance in their digital marketing efforts.
If these options sound like a great fit, then you are on your way to success!
Pets are family, and their humans are looking for help on multiple levels.
Pet health, grooming and training are all big franchise opportunities. And believe it or not, there are some well-known franchise brands that are based around picking up and disposing of doggy waste!
Pet-loving entrepreneurs can take advantage of some great franchise choices.
