Why Home-Based Franchising is the Perfect Career Change

Home-based franchises

Looking to make a change in your life that puts you in control of your career and professional future?


Joining a franchise is one way many people transition into a role that’s both professionally and personally rewarding for those who invest the time and effort to grow within their community.


Whether you find yourself stuck in a dying industry or climbing the endless corporate ladder, The Groutsmith franchise opportunity is one of many franchising options out there that gives you the chance to go down a completely new professional path with a home-based business of your own. 


Let’s explore why home-based cleaning franchising is the perfect option regardless of your professional experience or background.


A popular choice among those in a transition period


Simply put, franchising has remained one of the most traveled paths to professional freedom among those looking for something new and exciting.


A 2013 survey from Franchise Direct found that just over half of those who participated said they were compelled to invest in franchising by the opportunity to be their own boss and without having to start from scratch with a risky business idea of their own.


Let’s face it––the economy is still struggling to return to pre-recession levels and many industries continue to shrink here in the United States. The risks involved with starting a completely new business on your own can be a huge gamble.


A study by the International Franchise Association (IFA) suggested that at many as 95 percent of new franchises were still in business after five years, and 91 percent after seven years. Compare that to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics and the US Small Business Administration’s research which showed 70 percent of independent start-ups still in business after two years, 50 percent after 5 years, and just over 30 percent longer than 10 years, and it’s clear which option is safer for new business owners.


Franchising, unlike going it alone, has a a two-sided advantage


1.  A solid understanding of the market that comes with years of experience in the industry, and

2.  The same freedom to be your own boss and run a business the way you want to each and every day.

Being able to continue that growth by giving motivated individuals the chance to get behind an industry-leading brand to find success for themselves is an accomplishment we’re truly proud of as a team. 


When it comes to starting a business, “location, location, location” is still the mantra that rings true as a huge factor that can make or break your business.
