It can be frightening to start your own business. You need capital, inventory and a storefront. You need to choose a name for your business that customers will recognize as well as sell your product. Why not take the guess work out of opening your business by purchasing a franchise. The name has already been chosen for you and by simply writing a check, you’ll be able to open the doors and begin doing business as soon as you want to.
But what franchises are the best to own?
The first thing you must do is ask yourself what kind of business you want to own and operate. Start with what you’re good at. Maybe you are an amateur photographer? So buy a mobile photography business. Or perhaps you’ve planned weddings for all of your friends, and they thought you were pretty good at it. Buy a wedding/event planning franchise.
The possibilities are endless. Of course, you could buy a fast food franchise, the big three are always for sale, and McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Burger King have web sites that you can find prices and preferred locations. A fast food franchise will tell you exactly what to do, where to do it and how. For the right price, you can be a restaurant owner in no time.
If you don’t like the idea of flipping burgers for a living, that’s okay because there are lots of other opportunities available for purchase.
Some of the more popular franchise opportunities are: Cellular Phone, Health and fitness, Hotels/lodging and online auction franchises.
Although these are considered some of the more popular franchises, you can also turn to the more creative. Gift basket franchises have grown exponentially over the last five years and are very popular in college towns. Mom and dad want to send their little one a birthday cake or a congratulations basket for passing a test. You get the idea! In addition, tanning salons, day spas and even personal staffing franchises have become must haves for many potential business owners.
Do you like dogs and cats? Why not open a pet services franchise or a dog daycare or a pet grooming franchise. They are all available.
Speaking of day care, if pets aren’t your bag, maybe you’d prefer working with the elderly? Because of the aging population in the United States, there has become a huge need for elderly day care. Children are now taking care of their parents. Those that require adult day care are the folks that either can’t afford to go to a home or aren’t bad off enough to go to a home. They just need someone to be with them to make sure they get a bite to eat during the day and don’t burn down the house while doing it.
What other franchises are best to own? Cleaning/janitorial franchises, tax services, hardware stores, convenience stores, hair salons, mail box stores, health care franchises, printing shops, pet waste removal and flower shops.
Most franchises start around $10,000 and can increase to as much as $100,000.
