Nothing should dent the happiness of becoming a new parent – or even adding to your family with more little ones. However, those bundles of joy can cost a substantial amount.
The list of things needed can seem endless, from cots to car seats, and from clothes to fun classes. Which means that behind the UK’s thrilled parents are an army of providers of services and products for babies. And you could join them.
There is money to be made in helping parents to get equipped and providing support for the early years of a child’s life. It's been estimated that between birth and the age of 21, a child costs their parents a whopping £230,000. One survey found that £1,000 of that is usually paid out while they are still in the womb.
However, when the little cherub first arrives, parents are particularly keen to select the most trusted providers. Which means to enjoy a fair share of the revenue from this sector, a baby franchise is often the best route to go down rather than starting up on your own.
Some of the most successful baby product and service companies are willing to share their tried and trusted business models with carefully selected entrepreneurs. You get the backing of their respected and well-known branding, and they help with business management and marketing to get your venture on solid ground. Businesses offering their experience and insights to people who want to be their own boss cover a vast range.
For example, award-winning Adventure Babies story and sensory classes. Franchiser Baby Foundations offers four options: Baby Sensory, Water Babies, Mini Professors and KeepaBeat. While Mini Monkey Gym is a niche franchise provider and the Keepsake Company supports start-ups offering valued mementoes of baby’s early days.
Or you could start a Baby & Children’s Clothes retail franchise. To grow a healthy business as a baby franchise, let us match you to the right parent company, so your business baby gets the best start in life.
