Mobile franchises are attractive opportunities for many people seeking independence and the flexibility of working from home while still having the ability to get out and interact with customers. Mobile franchise opportunities have proliferated in recent years, and today franchisors in a wide range of industries are offering home-based mobile opportunities.
For individuals thinking about buying a mobile franchise, there are a number of key considerations to keep in mind. Financial considerations are obviously top priorities (e.g., What is the initial investment? How much can you expect to make each year?), but potential franchisees need to keep the legal aspects of buying a franchise in mind as well. What happens if you can’t make your royalty payments? What if your business is successful and you want to renew at the end of the initial franchise term?
Industries with Mobile Franchise Offerings
While some mobile franchise opportunities require prior experience in the industry, many franchise systems offer “comprehensive” training programs for new franchisees, and in some cases minimal technical training and experience are required. As a result, when it comes to choosing the mobile franchise opportunities to consider, background is often less important than a passion for the industry. Mobile franchises are currently available in industries such as:
- Blinds Installation
- Delivery Services
- Appliance and Electronics Repair
- Furniture Repair and Restoration
- Handyman Services
- Home Cleaning
- Pest Control
- Pet Care and Grooming
- Power Washing
- Vehicle Cleaning
- Windshield Repair
Make Sure You Have a Lawyer Review Your FDD and Franchise Agreement
Once you decide which franchise opportunity (or opportunities) you want to pursue, the next step is to consult with an experienced franchise attorney. You will want to have your attorney review the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) and franchise agreement, and your attorney should be able to provide tips for due diligence as well.
At the Goldstein Law Firm, we offer three different flat-fee franchise review packages, and we are happy to help you choose the one that best fits your franchise opportunity in a free and confidential initial consultation.
