Home Based Business Ideas

When you hear that someone is thinking of starting a small business from home, would you immediately think of a franchise?

Me neither, that is at least until I read an article on home based franchises. I came across the story by visiting the Small Business Brief, a website edited by Linda Riley that is dedicated to serving small businesses.

Here’s the lowdown on three profitable business related franchise opportunities:

  • Bookkeeping

  • I’ve been an involved in the incorporation industry for over 5 years, and I can tell you first hand that there is a demand for this service! Check out CFO Today and Padgett Business Services for information on setting up a franchise for this market.

  • Computer repair

  • You know the story, in today’s business environment, you can’t live long without your PC. Contact Geeks on Call or Rescuecom and you could be the person that people call when technology starts to get a little confusing, or just plain stops working.

  • Cleaning

  • Who wants to work in a dirty office? Many offices hire cleaning companies to come after hours or on weekends when staff is gone or business is slower. This is the perfect opportunity to have a second job that can be based out of your home. Details on franchising are available from CleanNet and JaniKing.

    Thanks for the great information Linda!
