Franchise or Not?
Starting a business can be a daunting prospect, there are all sorts of associated worries and concerns, not least the financial side of things. There are many reasons a person may consider starting their own business, whether they are an entrepreneur at heart or have been forced by circumstance to look outside regular employment. With our ever-changing economy, more women in particular are looking outside the standard 9-5 job for opportunities to create the perfect work/ life balance.
Choosing to buy-in to a franchise is one option that helps off-set some of the anxieties first time business owners have. Though it isn’t cheap; if you’re looking to buy-in to a well-known children’s based franchise, you will need to spend upwards of £3,000. If the franchise area you wish to purchase is well established, you could well be looking at an initial outlay of an eye-watering £40,000 with some well known brands such as Baby Sensory and Slimming World. If you’re considering fast-food restaurants like McDonald’s, you may need more than seven figures just to get started.
Though not every business comes with such a heavy price tag, there are very few genuine opportunities that are not simply MLM in disguise (Avon, Osborne Books, Herbalife anyone?). Not every business has the same ingredients to be successful either, though the main requirement is a local, home-based business you can take advantage of to get started and make money from the off.
We are a friendly, approachable, family-owned business based in the Midlands UK with opportunities nationwide, including Ireland. We understand the flexibility and unique approach each family needs towards working and running a business when your family is your number 1 priority, and this is why we are so excited to direct these opportunities to mums (and dads!).
