The franchise industry provides many options to women seeking business ownership on a full- or part-time basis in multiple sectors including fitness, home services, senior care, business services, child services, food and beverage, and more. There is literally a franchise for every interest or skill set.
The benefits franchising offers women who take the time to identify a strong franchise brand with the ability to meet their personal and financial objectives are numerous. In addition to saying goodbye to gender discrimination, being paid less than male colleagues, and lack of control over their work hours and vacation time, they operate their own business following an established, proven successful system while being supported by their franchisor and fellow franchisees. This often translates into being able to open and grow their business faster than entrepreneurs who start a business from scratch.
