Working From Home Franchises

Make money from the comfort of home with a home-based franchise opportunity.

Working from home can benefit both lifestyle and well-being. Since the pandemic hit, working from home has become the norm. Many businesses have adapted well to this change, and many have reaped the benefits. 

The pace and style of the UK workforce has changed, and staff are reluctant to head back to the office and the daily commute. Why spend time in the office when working from home can be just as effective. 

The findings of the ONS data shows some interesting statistics

that in April 2020, 46.6% of people did some work from home, 86% worked from home as a direct result of the pandemic.

The way we have evolved to home working, has boosted the economy in so many areas, these include Garden offices suppliers enjoying phenomenal growth according to Hemsec’s business development manager, Richard Bennett, said: “Over the last decade, the growth in the market for garden rooms and home office extensions has risen steadily, driven pre-Covid by increasing consumer interest in extended living space and a desire for home working by those seeking a more balanced lifestyle. “This year, however, is like no other, as people are required to work from home where possible. This means much less time is spent commuting to the office, and much more time with families, causing people generally to re-evaluate their lives. According to PBCToday, the growth in demand for garden rooms and home offices has expanded massively over the Covid-19 pandemic.

Homeowners need more space in which to work, so a home garden office seems a great solution. These units are cost-effective and can be custom-built or brought “off the peg”. Many of these buildings do not require planning permission as they fall under the Permitted Development. However, it is always worth checking with the Local Authority if you are unsure.

Estate Agents are reporting an upsurge in demand as people are keen to move to larger homes in more rural areas and escape the city. Outside space is what homebuyers are seeking. With house prices on the up in this seller market. Many Estate Agents & Letting Agents are rushed off their feet with the housing boom. An Estate Agent or Letting Franchise can be run from home, just needing a reliable internet connection & phone. Full training would usually be provided by the Franchisor, included in the franchise fee, as well as support on-going. If you have a passion for property, this could be the home business for you.

Moving generates interest in the home improvement market, from amateur bakers that are installing state of the art kitchens and sometimes require professional oven cleaning services to clean up after a domestic baking disaster. 

Garden care services are another industry experiencing a boom, as we are spending more time at home, gardens are an area that most of us are keen to keep tidy & improve, whether it’s a quick trip to a garden centre to buy some summer bedding plants or invest in some new garden furniture to professional lawn and landscaping services. Brits spend generously on their gardens to keep them in tip-top condition and encourage and support local wildlife. A well-kept garden can improve your well-being, according to Statista the average spend has gone up on garden items during the pandemic.

If you are green-fingered and enjoy gardening, this type of franchise could be run either as a Van-based opportunity or as a Management franchise from home.

Many of the above services can be operated as a home-based franchise. If you would like to find out more about running a franchise business from home and would like further information, many UK home-based franchises can be viewed here.
