If you have a family, franchise businesses come with a lot of perks compared to starting one from scratch. Many parents love the idea of running their own business because it allows them the freedom to set their own schedules and prioritize their children. That’s probably why more parents are starting to take an interest in franchising. Don’t take our word for it – Fiona Simpson of What Franchise explains why franchising appeals to parents:
Starting a new business is like having a new baby. It requires a lot of time, attention and nurturing to grow and thrive. Having the additional challenges of raising a family alongside starting that business means time and resources are limited.
Therefore, having the support of a community you can rely on for advice and support, especially when problems inevitably arise, is invaluable. Having the backing of a franchise network can mean the often daunting leap into the world of self-employment can seem a lot less scary.
At Filta, we’ve helped many new franchisees to get their businesses up and running and have made the process as simple as possible – not scary at all! Here’s a quick look at a few of the key steps towards opening your family-friendly franchise.
