Home based franchises are becoming extremely popular with those who wish to start a business without high upfront costs, and enjoy the freedom of working from home.
According to a survey undertaken by the TUC, over 4 million people in the UK have said that they would like to be able to work from home. Are you one of them? Many people dream of running their own business, but worry about the upfront costs, finding customers and the solitary nature of starting up without any support.
A home based franchise allays these worries, as you are buying into an already established business, so have tools at hand to drum up customers, and an established business model to work from.
As part of a franchise you also get the guidance and support that you would not otherwise have, combatting that feeling of isolation that can impact on how well you perform in running your own company.
One of the best things about many home based franchises is that require little upfront and ongoing costs. By running your business from home you will save on things like rent, business rates, and often equipment costs.
For many would-be entrepreneurs, working from home can also offer you a better lifestyle, as you avoid the stresses of commuting, office politics, and can also choose to work more flexibly, choosing hours that suit you.
