There are two types of home based franchise choices, a one person army, where it is you doing the work, like consulting, and there are franchises with employees. There is no right or wrong answer, some people prefer to not deal with employees, others prefer to work towards a more passive business.

Let’s start with a little known but very successful sector, renovation/restoration and home improvement. The owner is hiring and managing crews who go out and conduct the work, and developing relationships locally. The owner may also choose to do estimates, or they can hire a salesperson. Some brands do allow for home based ownership, you may want to get a small office and warehouse once the business grows. This industry can be very profitable. One franchise has an average net profit of over $200k a year, that is net profit, with an investment of around $80k. This brand has sold out in many territories, if you are interested call franchise city we’ll check if your city is still open. They are SBA approved so with 30% down buyers can finance the rest.

Vending.
