Home-Based Gives New Freedom
A home-based franchise provides the best of both worlds for harried corporate workers. It allows you to chart a new course for your future and achieve the work-life balance and flexibility you crave.
As offices reopen and people return to work in person, many American workers are reluctant to resume their daily commutes. At the height of the pandemic, one-third of Americans worked remotely, as offices shuttered to help flatten the curve, the National Council on Compensation Insurance reported. Prior to the outbreak of COVID-19, only six percent of American workers held primarily remote positions. Navigating the pandemic forced many people to juggle a lot of balls.
Keeping up with work, remote schooling, and childcare responsibilities was an uphill battle, but having a home office helped ease the burden. A recent survey of 2,118 remote workers revealed that 97% of workers would recommend remote work to others, according to Buffer, a social media management platform.
Many corporations are relaxing paid time off restrictions or offering hybrid scheduling to help workers retain flexibility. A tight labor market is giving many corporate employees the upper hand and returning to the office is forcing people to make tough choices about their corporate jobs.

Franchising Helps Small Businesses Thrive
Small businesses are the backbone of the American economy. As many as 81% of small businesses do not have employees. Franchisees are local business owners committed to helping their communities flourish.
Typically, when people think of franchising, they picture a fast-food restaurant or a rental car company. There are countless opportunities — for a wide variety of budgets — in fields like home services, tutoring, senior care, and tax preparation. Almost 300 industries offer franchise opportunities, according to the U.S. Census. Franchising allows people to invest in a business with a proven track record and brand recognition. As a franchisee, they get the tools and processes to follow to generate a profit.
Franchising offers numerous low-investment opportunities and financing options to make them attainable. Many low-investment opportunities cut costs by removing a brick-and-mortar storefront from the equation. Their business model allows people to operate home-based or completely virtual businesses. Franchisees can make their own schedules and get the flexibility they need to successfully navigate their responsibilities on the home front.
