Home Based Franchises can be a great way to start a home-based business. Some popular options include:
• cleaning or janitorial services
• on-site vehicle maintenance
• mobile windshield repair
• direct mail
• tutoring services
• selling assorted products (gift baskets, personalized namesakes, tools, medical supplies, etc.)
Any business you can think of to run from a home base probably exists as a franchise set-up somewhere. Many franchise directories even allow you to browse home franchise opportunities. Check out the zoning codes in your town to make sure you can run a home based business before you get too far into the research though. Some towns restrict home based businesses to avoid traffic and noise problems.
