Each year, Entrepreneur magazine’s annual top 500 report reveals the most successful franchises using the following criteria: financial strength, business stability, growth rate and size, number of years in operation, number of years offering franchising, start-up costs, litigation, percentage of terminations and whether or not financing is offered. The list also parses out the top home-based franchise options in particular.
Although we all know there are marked differences between the overall business model that governs a franchise opportunity versus that of a business opportunity, the list provides a strong indication of what work-from-home industries are hottest when it comes to the demand for products and services. And knowing what industries offer the most in terms of viability and growth potential for the foreseeable future is good information for any smart business opportunity shopper to have going into their search.
Remember: Where there is a great home-based franchise opportunity, there is also, more often than not, a compelling equivalent in the world of home-based business opportunities! And BusinessOpportunity.com is your one-stop shop for both!
