Types of Part Time Franchises

Though there are numerous instances of franchisors providing a part-time franchise opportunity to interested franchisees, there are some arenas which are more lucrative part-time franchise options and have thrived exceptionally well. As an amateur franchisee, you may try out these arenas to start up on your part-time franchise business career.

We have listed the most popular types of part-time franchises in the UK below:

• Internet Services – Services such as web designing, SME marketing, newsletters and other similar services are high on demand but a bit low on supply. Therefore, most franchisors (such as Active Web Design and Loyalty Matters) provide these services as part-time franchise options for individuals who excel in such skills but cannot afford to work full time because of other obligations. With flexible working hours and a fantastic reward for services offered, such part-time franchise options have rocketed to the peak of popularity in no time.

• Pet Care – As care for pets is not an easy task, and most people hire professional help for such purposes, this is also a popular franchise opportunity that can be pursued part time. Franchisors such as Creature Comforts provide ideal part-time franchise opportunities as pet care specialists which you can pursue in your spare time without hampering your work prospects.

• Dating – Dating services, especially online dating agencies such as Affiliate Dating Ltd. can provide you with extremely rewarding yet low-investment part-time franchise opportunities. These require you to work from home and yet manage clients with equal ease and expert support that a conventional franchise option would have done.

• Food Outlets – Franchisors such as The Muffin Place and others offer part-time franchise options to the franchisees that are interested in participating in a lucrative career in business with them. Most of these franchise options require the franchisee to sell the franchisors’ products with a margin of profit for the latter. This part-time franchise opportunity can be pursued from one’s own backyard or garage!

• Venue Styling – Part-time franchise option offers venue styling services that are a great avenue of acquiring franchise rewards and showcase business acumen for the franchisee. This is a low cost franchise opportunity with a thorough training program organized by the franchisor.

Such part-time franchise opportunities are ideal for people such as stay-at-home parents, mothers and housewives who have other responsibilities to take care of, but have a strong will to succeed in building a prosperous business career in the franchising industry. Most of these part- time franchise opportunities are suited for franchisees that seek to start small and want to gradually build their business.

So if you are one among such wannabe part time franchisees, with such a diverse range of franchise options, you will always find a suitable option to progress in your business career. There are many thousands of part time franchise opportunities across the world and due diligence must be done when selecting what you think is the right franchise for you. With so many there are of course always going to be some which only make a profit for the franchisor so care must be taken to ensure you are buying into one which will work for you. Asking for a list of existing franchisees is always a good first step, this way you may contact them and find out how well the franchise is working for them.

About Carol Ferrier
Having spent many years as a stay at home mother, it was quite a difficult decision to have to take a job to make ends meet when my sons were in junior high and high school. I had prided myself on carefully using our families’ financial resources to ensure they stretched as far a possible but even that was not enough. (To console myself I told myself it wasn’t so bad and that they didn’t need me as they did when they were younger.) It was frustrating to have my boss schedule me week after week to work during the only time my family had free time. Even after being promoted to management, instead of having more time I had even less to spend with those I loved the most. Looking for a way to be at home and also help with our finances led me to look at something quite new to me as an option…Network Marketing. We jumped in enthusiastically working, and just as our partners promised our check grew to a significant amount. It was a wonderful experience to finally get paid on our efforts and not on the fixed income a boss determined. Along the way we also learned that it made a difference which company you partnered with, whether the leadership of the company had vision, ethics and a determination to keep the companies distributors interests at heart. Today we have a 5 figure a month income that is steadily growing and we have been able to move into the home we only a few short years ago only dreamed about. Working from home together allows us the time to travel, work and play together. Today it is such a joy to help others develop their own flourishing home business, in the hopes that they can stay home with their family if they so desire. Because of this amazing industry we have been able to take fabulous trips around the world, experiencing amazing moments together. A special tradition we have had over the past 7 years is being able to take our trip to Hawaii yearly with our grandson. It was another magical time, together on the beach, snorkeling, luaus and rich cultural experiences. What fun we had!! Thinking back on the many years I put in for past bosses I get so much satisfaction now because I am able to spend my time building our dreams as we gather together with dear friends and business associates… how wonderful to be able to work and play with those we call our business partners and friends.
