Ever thought about leaving the dreaded daily commute behind, working from home and making your own schedule? It’s something that is a real possibility these days as the number of home-based business franchises increases annually and become a viable alternative to the daily grind of traditional jobs.

With lower start-up costs and overheads than many franchises, you can see the appeal of starting up a business from the comfort of your own home. There’ll be no office rent to pay and the lighting, heat and floor space will already form part of your monthly outgoings. What’s more, the costs of purchasing home-based franchise systems tend to be lower than out-of-home franchises such as established restaurants for sale. As a result, there’s less chance of you getting into debt associated with rent and related startup costs.

An added bonus is that, in many cases, home-based franchises require none, or very few employees, making the whole process as simple as possible. 

Opportunities include home services, administrative services, computer and internet services, in addition to various distributorships. We offer franchises in everything from food truck restaurants for sale, carpet cleaning and children’s mobile play areas to pet grooming services, car care and pest controllers to name but a few. 

What’s more, most of the home-based franchises on offer require little or no previous experience or formal training before you invest in them. Whatever type of franchise you choose to buy into, you’ll be given access to a successful and fully trusted brand. This will come complete with a business model that works, a marketing plan, management training and ongoing support to see you through the initial stages of your franchise’s birth and development. You’ll be able to hit the floor running, giving you the best opportunity to make money straight from the get-go. 

The day-to-day operations of running a business from the comfort of your own home can dramatically cut down, or in some instances, even eliminate the need to commute. Even those businesses that serve others outside the home, such as cleaning or maintenance services, allow the franchisee an element of flexibility which can enable them to avoid peak commuter traffic.

Most people opt for this type of franchise due to the increased flexibility it offers. The control over your daily schedule as you run your business from home will also give you more control over your time. You’ll be able to run errands, pick up the kids from school, make personal appointments and even be around for ill children without having to plead with your boss for time off. A luxury unfortunately many of us in this day and age don’t enjoy.

Start working from home now, choose your own schedule and buy into one of the many tried and tested franchises. You can be safe in the knowledge that you’ll have a successful business model behind you and trained professionals who can help you out should you need them. Be your own boss, choose your own hours and live the life you’ve always wanted.
