The world of franchising has embraced the type of businesses that can operate from anywhere and at any time. If you are a busy dad, you’ll find that there are plenty of franchise opportunities for you to choose from.

Work from home

Increasingly, parents are choosing to work from home so that they can fit their business and work life into their day. Franchising has created ample opportunities for this.

If you have a busy schedule, finding a franchise that you can operate from your home is a great option. You will still receive the support that you need from the franchisor, but you will be able to work in a way that suits you.

Internet based franchises are a great example of this because you can work from anywhere, however, this is not your only option. You can also run cleaning, travel and brokerage franchises from home- to name a few!

There will, of course, still be challenges if you work from home. You will need to be careful not to let either your work or your life commitments fall to the weigh side. If you can manage this, there is a lot of room for success.

Flexible franchises

Being a working dad can mean that you are not always able to keep your work to regular office hours. Finding a franchise that is more flexible can go a long way to helping you keep up with your commitments.

There are multiple franchises out there that cater to children’s birthday parties that will usually take place over weekends. This leaves you with your weeks to carry out administration, chores and childcare!

There are so many options within this type of franchise that you are sure to find something that you are passionate about. Anything from children’s crafts and activities to go-karting!

Franchises with more flexible hours extend beyond children’s birthdays. Tutoring, sports coaching and education franchises will also allow you to fit work around your schedule.

Organisation and hard work

In order to make sure that you make the right decision, you will need to research your options as thoroughly as possible. Understand what it is that you want to get out of owning a franchise and what kind of time commitment you can make.

There will certainly be a business that will be able to suit your need so spend the time finding the right one.

No matter what franchise you choose, making your business a success while still finding time for the other commitments in your schedule will require a lot of organisation. And, no matter the number of hours you are dedicating to your business, you will need to work hard.
