Small Business Franchise Opportunities

USA was built on small businesses! Although over time we've seen the creation and growth of some of the biggest businesses in the world, small businesses still represent the majority of American commerce. Small business ownership is the reason we have so many self-made millionaires and a booming middle class. A small business franchise offers you a chance to utilize your entrepreneurial spirit while also providing a proven business model, established brand name, and support.

Popular Small Business Franchise Categories

Picking the right type of business for your strengths and experiences is one of the most important parts of the franchising process. If you are excited about becoming a small business owner, here are some popular small business franchise opportunities to consider:

Home Improvement Franchises

Operating a franchise in the home improvement space means you will be going to the homes of your customers to do work on either the inside or outside of the house (or both). Franchising is particularly useful in this market, because homeowners need to trust anyone they hire for this kind of work. Your franchise branding will deliver some immediate credibility. In most cases, a home improvement business is going to require some existing experience, but as a franchisee, you can benefit from the franchise’s training and onboarding process to get you up to speed quickly.

Senior Care Franchises

Small businesses that offer senior care provide a valuable service for their communities. If you love helping people in need and you have some experience in health care or a related field, this market could be a great choice. From a business perspective, there is a massive population base that will soon be reaching their senior years and will need various types of care. This means there will be strong demand for your services virtually anywhere in the U.S.

Explore Opportunities

Business Consulting Franchises

Have you spent most of your career working in a specific industry and you’d now like to branch out on your own? Those with a strong background in a given field are ideal for a business consulting franchise. With this type of business, you can work directly with your clients to offer insights and advice based on the knowledge you’ve picked up over the years.

Explore Opportunities

Tutoring Franchises

Not everyone who likes to teach wants to work in a school. If you’d love to teach but would also like to run your own business, consider a tutoring franchise. Parents always want to see their children do well in school and are often willing to spend money on private tutoring help to make that a reality. With this type of franchise, you could turn your passion for teaching into a lucrative business.
