Fun Franchise Opportunities: Know Thyself

You already know there are tons of franchise opportunities out there for enterprising people to get in on. But you may be looking for something a bit more interesting than your run of the mill business, something that’s not only a good time to own but easier to operate as well.

First though, you need to know what the definition of owning a fun franchise is for you. Before you take the leap into owning a franchise, assess what your goals are. You know you’re looking for something fun and easier to run but maybe you also want greater work/life balance and to make a lot of money. Think about what industry you want to be in. What kind of business would make you happy and excited to operate? Ask yourself how involved you’d like to be in the daily running of the business. You might enjoy being very hands on, or you may prefer to delegate duties. You may be an awesome people person but not so good with the accounting; you can always make your workday easier and more enjoyable by hiring the help you need. Lastly, know your budget. Nothing is fun or easy when you are stressed out and financially overextended. Find a franchise that fits into your financial picture.

Fun and Easy to Operate Franchise Opportunities

Now that you’ve defined what a fun business would mean for you, you’re ready to research some of your best choices. While many types of franchises can be fun to own, some franchises are easier to operate than others and can even generate passive income. Certain franchisors will require your day-to-day presence, but not all. And some franchisors encourage multi-unit ownership so you can own more than one location, overseeing employees, and increasing your profitability.

Let’s look over a few easy and fun franchise business opportunities that are hot right now.

  • Education: Owning an education franchise doesn’t necessarily require previous teaching experience. If you enjoy helping people learn, there are several tutoring franchises to explore that specialize in math and reading, as well as more specialty education businesses like those that teach music. These types of businesses are ideal for those with a desire to make a difference and who like to delegate to qualified employees.
  • Home Services: These types of franchises can often be run from home, have low cost of entry, require little to no experience, and are great for someone who wants to delegate work to trusted staff. And if you love home improvement projects or have a penchant for interior decorating? All the better.
  • Fitness: Many people who enter the fitness industry are themselves fitness enthusiasts. But to own a fitness franchise, you’ll need to employ qualified teachers and trainers to work with your customers. This type of franchise can be as hands on as you like or run by management on a daily basis.
  • Salon/Spa: Salons and spas have become popular as more people recognize the feel-good potential of a great haircut or a relaxing massage. If improving someone’s day with a bright spot of self-care is on your fun list, this type of business may be for you. There’s no need for any beauty industry experience; you can hire qualified professionals to apply their skills in service of the business.
