Home Based Franchising

With over 2,500 franchise concepts in the US alone, business owners are finding ways to appeal to investors. And one major way to do that is offer them the benefits of working from home. Several of our clients have perfected the system, including:

At Matco Tools, franchise distributors of automotive tools and diagnostic and
service equipment have utilized home based offices for 61 years. Their franchisees
utilize a mobile distribution system that features weekly sales and service
contacts with pre-identified potential customer in an exclusive area. I'd say Matco has perfected the work-from-home business model.

Another example is FocalPoint Business Coaching. The FocalPoint model requires no inventory and has low operational
overhead, while obtaining premium margins for the service your
franchise will provide to the clients. A quiet place to work, a computer and phone and you're set.

And there are dozens more. When you're considering owning your own business, don't forget about the franchise opportunities like these and many others that allow you the flexibility and benefit of owning your own business and working from the comfort of your home.
