You can certainly run a franchise opportunity from the comfort of your home office. The trend has been on the rise in the past few years. Home-based franchising will continue to grow as many are discovering that working from home can be just as effective as working from an office environment each day.
Think about how much productivity is wasted in your daily commute, not to mention gas, dry cleaning, parking, tolls, daycare expenses and so much more. Working at home can not only save you time and money but a lot of stress, as well.
Franchises offer a secure way to make money from home and many offer exclusivity rights, of which I am a huge fan.
Check out franchises that focus on educational and children’s products and services, financial services, pet care, photography, consulting, computer, travel and many more sectors that cater to the home-based entrepreneur who wants to purchase a franchise. Also, you can buy multiple franchises and work them into one network out of your home in different market sectors to maximize profits.
Consider a note of caution before jumping in with both feet when buying your new franchise opportunity. Check your local zoning. Many do not allow a business to be run from home no matter what the nature or size is. Additionally, think about employee parking if you should need or want to hire any people down the road or right from the start. Often special permits are required, so make sure you’ve covered your bases before you open up shop in your home.
