Many budding entrepreneurs beginning their franchise search may think franchising is limited to only a few industries, such as restaurants or fitness centers. However, there are many more opportunities in the world of franchising. FranServe, Inc. has the industry’s largest number of contracted franchisors and supports established legacy brands as well as ground-floor opportunities.
FranServe’s portfolio of franchises carries 25 industry categories and supports over 300 franchise subcategories. A few of FranServe’s lower-cost options include vending, business and financial services, real estate, senior care, pet services and home and travel services. Additionally, with the back-to-school season around the corner, now may be a good time to consider some of the franchises available in the child services/youth sports industries.
For consideration, below is a list of some of these industry categories FranServe supports:
- Martial Arts
- Swim Schools
- Cooking Programs
- STEM Enrichment
- Mobile Entertainment
- After-school Programs
- Art or Music Education
- Newborn or Child Care
- Performing Arts Academics
- Child/Youth Sports or Fitness
- Preschool/Early Childhood Education
- Education or Educational Enrichment Programs
Many of the franchises within these industries are low-cost brands, some with franchise fees as low as $25,000 and some with all-in investment totals just under $35,000. With such a low barrier to entry, these brands allow new franchisees to get their feet in the door and build their businesses quickly, with fewer financial burdens. Some brands allow franchisees to work from home or offer a mobile option versus a brick-and-mortar location requirement. Also, some may offer semi-absentee or total absentee franchise models, allowing franchise owners to build up other businesses or continue in an existing career. With innumerable options available, aspiring entrepreneurs can find the flexibility and work-life balance they are seeking.
Because of the franchise industry’s complexity, those interested in investing in a franchise for the first time can get overwhelmed. Instead of going into a life-changing decision blindly, many benefit from expert, impartial advisers to help them find a brand that best suits their investment level and lifestyle. FranServe has hundreds of certified franchise consultants who provide expert advice in a growing industry. As a purpose-driven organization, FranServe is committed to helping people achieve their professional goals and take control of their lives. There is no cost to prospective franchise owners for FranServe’s services, which means candidates receive invaluable information with no strings attached.
