Wanna Be a Mompreneur? Consider Investing in a Pet Franchise

Franchising is a great way to step into the world of business ownership. Owning a franchise business gives you all the perks of being your own boss with added support from the franchise itself. Pet franchises are not often the first type of business to come to mind, however, they are a fantastic industry to consider. In 2018, pet franchises brought in a revenue of $90.5 billion, and this is expected to increase in coming years, making investing in a pet franchise an impressive growth opportunity.

Run the business from home

One of the best things about pet franchises is that many can be run from the comfort of your own home! This is ideal for busy parents or people who want a business that offers time flexibility. Owning a pet franchise could mean no more long commutes to the office, and you are able to remain present for your children. Some pet businesses that may be run from your home include dog walking, pet sitting and even pet grooming.

The ability to run the franchise from your home also means that start-up costs for pet franchises are generally lower. This is because you don’t need to pay money to rent an office.  Pet franchises are a good option for anyone who wants to run their own business for a relatively low cost.

You will love your job!

Owning a pet franchise means that you will receive the serotonin-boosting perks of being around pets every single day. If you are an animal lover, it is almost guaranteed that you will never hate a day of work. You will be able to earn money from doing something you genuinely enjoy. And, your children may enjoy having exposure to animals as well.

Your business will be a recognized brand

Many franchises are globally recognized brands with years of industry experience under their belts. By investing in one of these, you can set up your business with a well-known brand, which means that you will have a guaranteed customer base. Consumers tend to stick to brands they know and trust, which can make it difficult for an independent business to make a dent in the market. Pre-established brands attract customers who know of the brand and have maybe even used the brand in another location. This will help your business become a success!

You can run the business part time

Many dream of running their own business but can’t manage the long hours it often takes to make a traditional business successful. It can be a lot to juggle as a multi-tasking mom. Luckily, pet franchises can easily be run part-time to fit your lifestyle. Dog walking franchises, for example, may only need to run for a few hours a day or while owners are at work. This will leave you time to embark on other responsibilities, hobbies, care taking and/or spending quality time with your family.

Franchises will offer you support

One of the perks that often draws people into franchising is that franchises offer huge amounts of support to entrepreneurs who have invested in them. This is great for anyone who is new to the world of business and may need help getting things going. As a franchisee, you will be offered full training, marketing materials, on-call advice and support in getting your first customers.

You can be your own boss

For anyone who dreads going to their 9-5 and working long hours for the benefit of somebody else, franchising is definitely for you! By owning a franchise, you work entirely for yourself. The harder you work, the more money you will make, which makes putting in those hours a whole lot easier.

If you have a family or other commitments, being your own boss means that you can work whenever you like- there is no obligation to turn up to a shift.  There is always a demand for pet care- whether that be over weekends or during the working day. Owning a pet franchise is a worthwhile business opportunity for anyone who dreams of answering only to themselves.
