Check Out Entrepreneur’s Top 100 Home-based Franchises for 2013!
6 May 13 Posted by: Kathleen C Lanza
in Work-From-Home

There are so many great franchises for sale these days that it’s hard to know where to start when it comes to choosing the one that best meets your needs and will enable you to achieve your goals. That’s why Entrepreneur magazine’s annual lists of the Top “Everything Franchise” are always such a great read!

While Entrepreneur is very careful to mention that its rankings are “not intended to endorse, promote or recommend any particular franchise company,” its annual “Franchise 500®” and other associated line-ups can be an important component of any ambitious and aspiring or existing entrepreneur’s search for just the right opportunity. Of course, it’s critical to avail yourself of a number of other key resources as well before you make the decision to go into business for yourself, not the least of which would be your lawyer or accountant. Additionally, franchises are now required to provide you with full Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDDs), which will provide you with the most important information you need to know before you launch your new enterprise.

Perhaps most importantly, you should also make it an absolute priority to talk with other franchisees about their experiences. There is really no better gauge of what the future holds for you than being able to view it through the eyes of someone who has already lived it. Besides, franchisees who have “been there, done that” and done it successfully make great mentors, and no one in their right mind should ever go into business—especially for the first time—without at least one of those!

top-homebased-franchises-2013Each and every company that makes any one of Entrepreneur’s annual “Top” lists, regardless of its kind or size, is judged on the same objective and quantifiable measures, including financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system. Other factors such as the length of time a company has been in business, how long it has been franchising its operations, startup costs, litigation issues, terminations and financing options also come into play.

How about you? What are you looking for in a home-based or other small franchise opportunity? What are the criteria that you think matter most? Why? We’d like to hear what you have to say…

The earliest instances of 'work-from-home' that a Google Books search turns up use the phrase to mean "work away from home." Thus, for example, in The Charters and General Laws of the Colony and Province of Massachusetts, we find this provision (enacted in September 1634) "relating to the...

Cross Breeze Mobile Screens Business Opportunity: We’re a fully equipped ‘Mobile Screen’ business that can make you money plain and simple. We repair and replace window screens and screen doors and we sell and install the new retractable/rollaway screen doors. We offer a variety of screen related products like pet proof and solar screens. Easy to start, easy to own and the work is great!

We’ve been in the ‘Mobile Screen’ business since 1995. Not until 2011, did we decide to roll out our new ‘Business Opportunity’. For the past 16 years we’ve had our pulse on the screen business and we’ve been fine tuning our adjustments in order to create a turn key ‘business opportunity’ for you. We don’t think it’s necessary for you to have re-create or trail blaze in this industry. We took years to create a business model that you can simply walk into. We do not believe in franchising, nor do we think franchising in the Mobile Screen Repair business is a good idea.
