With UK disposable income rising year on year, consumers are spending more on little luxuries such as beauty treatments, home improvement and pet care. And with 1,521,000 people choosing to work from home, the conditions are ripe for entrepreneurs looking to start their own home-based business, with 1,400 new mobile franchises established each week.
The great news is that you don’t even have to wait for your dream home-working job to be advertised or come up with a brand-new service to plug a gap in the market. With a host of home-based franchise opportunities available right now, you’re even closer to your new life of freedom than you previously thought possible.
You can choose a home-based opportunity that suits your professional skills, experiences and interests, from cleaning, photography, and coaching and mentoring services to tutoring, dog boarding, hairdressing and more! Just some of the mobile and home-based franchises recruiting now include Apollo Blinds, Drain Doctor, SureCare, Global Travel Group, Blam Websites & Apps and Merry Maids.
Home-based franchising is particularly on the rise amongst women and the over-50s’ workforce who find the flexibility suits their lifestyle better than a traditional office job. However, it can also be a great move for millennials looking for a remote working opportunity that allows them to become entrepreneurs.
On top of the sense of personal fulfilment, home-based franchising can also be very financially rewarding, with remote franchise businesses turning over more than £364 billion collectively. Even more encouragingly, 95% of home-based franchisees are still running their business and making a profit five years later.
If you’ve often dreamt of working for yourself – now’s your opportunity! As a franchisee, you’ll get guidance and support every step of the way, and it’s a much easier way to run your own business than starting out cold. You’ll benefit from an established body of consumers who know and trust your chosen brand, which means there will be customers ready and waiting for you to bring these services to their area.
