Which franchises are trending right now?
This year has been one to remember – unfortunately, for the majority of us, not for the best reasons. In addition to the destruction of existing norms and social structures, millions of people have been forced into unemployment. Widespread closures of businesses that were unable to survive the lockdown have caused many to have to make big changes.
However, with destruction comes rebirth. With the rise of remote working and growing trend of work from home franchises, many are embracing flexible working opportunities.
Franchising as a way forward
Many of us dream of owning our own business and doing things on our own terms. Fancy a day off? Why not? Being your own boss frees you from the 9-5 that can sometimes feel like a life sentence. In today’s uncertain landscape, zero-hours contracts and employers dodging their responsibilities with legal loopholes are becoming far too common. Many people who have had enough are turning to a new way of thinking and embracing franchising as a solution.
Elimination of uncertainty
Unlike launching your own business from scratch, buying a franchise means buying into an established business model that’s already proved its ability to be successful and turn over a profit. There are already set structures and patterns in place and as most franchises have been around for a while, the uncertainty and guesswork is taken out of the equation. New franchisees receive training, in addition to materials and anything else that’s needed to get in on a piece of the action. Here on FranchiseUK we only list the very best franchise opportunities.
