Gain Your Independence through Entrepreneurship

Looking to pursue your dream of being your own boss without a daily commute to work? Fulcrum Franchise Development shares 5 top home-based franchise options that are well worth your consideration.

In the spirit of America’s Independence this month, harness that bravery of our forefathers and foremothers by pursuing your dream of owning a business. Better yet, own a franchise. You’ll understand why when you see what these top five home-based franchise options have to offer. There’s no ranking order—they’re all excellent choices to seriously consider.

1. HomeVestors of America

Also known as We Buy Ugly Houses, HomeVestors of America® is a growing-by-leaps-and-bounds company with more than 980 franchises spanning 144 markets. Franchisees purchase and rehab homes with 100% financing provided by HomeVestors. The houses are then sold as-is to other investors, or rehabbed and either sold to homeowners or kept by the franchisees as rental properties. HomeVestors has a very well known, proven and highly successful franchise model. Rather than competing, franchisees act as mentors to one another, sharing vendors and advice.

2. Footprint Floors

A distinctive, family owned and operated business that provides versatile flooring, Footprint Floors operates with a true sense of honesty and fairness from the initial call to the final payment. It offers an excellent lead generation program and call center to support its franchisees. The Colorado-based company prides itself on providing outstanding customer service, prompt free estimates and never charges extra, or requires clients to hire another company to move furniture, plumbing, or appliances…No wonder it’s gained so much footing as a successful franchise nationwide!

3. WOW 1-Day Painting

Considered several strokes ahead of its competitors, WOW 1 DAY PAINTING has revolutionized the painting industry. Unlike other painting companies that may take several days, if not weeks, to complete the project, they do it in one day. Their brand promise is simple: Speed + Quality = WOW.

4. Schooley Mitchell

Schooley Mitchell is an ideal fit for franchisees that love helping businesses do more with less. This professional B2B consulting franchise delivers advice and analysis to reduce telecommunications, merchant services (card processing) and small package shipping fees. In fact, they’re the largest independent cost-reduction consulting firm in North America, with offices from coast-to-coast in the U.S. and Canada. On average, Schooley Mitchell reduces essential business service expenses by 27-28% and has delivered over $340 million in documented savings to its clients.

5. Talem Home Care

“Empower people to experience the full joy of living.” That’s a vision that leaves you with plenty of warm fuzzy feelings. Rightfully so, because Talem Home Care is committed to helping people to take control of their health and lead them though the complicated health care system to achieve their goal of staying independent and healthy at home for as long as possible. Talem (which means “empower, lead & achieve” in Latin) offers a work ethic, support, and market opportunities you simply won’t find in other senior care franchises.
