4 Best Work From Home Franchises
Let’s face it. Making the commute from your bedroom to your living room without ever having to change out of those comfy pajamas you have come to love so much sounds like a dream come true. Instead of spending hours forcing you out of bed to get dressed in uncomfortable work clothes and endure the grueling office environment, a home office is a far more attractive solution.
For many, the idea of working out of the home sounds ideal, but when it comes down to it, knowing where to start can be a struggle. There are a number of ideas out there, but which one is right for you? And which one will bring you enough long-term income and success to keep you and your bank account feeling fulfilled?
Home based franchises have grown in popularity to address these exact concerns. If you have considered opening your own business out of your home, consider employing the strength and backing of an existing and proven business model with a franchise.
Here are some of the top work from home franchises you can get started with.
Started as a painting business in 1967, founders Ted and Doris Isaacson quickly saw a need in their market of homeowners for disaster clean up services. Now, SERVPRO works with insurance companies and homeowners in the area to transform houses that have been hit with a disaster, such as a flood or storm damage. In spite of the current troubled economy, there is a continued need for these types of services in all areas of the country, making this one of the easiest and most promising franchises to open and manage.
2. Snap-On Tools
To get a job done correctly, businesses need tools that work well, are solid and are fast and easy to use. Founder Joseph Johnson took this need for tools and transformed the tool industry by designing and creating advanced tool sets for a variety of businesses. Since its creation in 1920, Snap-On Tools has become an industry leader in providing high quality hand tools, power tools, tool storage, etc.
Each week, franchise owners and employees bring mobile sales rooms to customers and businesses that use these tools to sell them the latest and greatest solutions that help mechanics, dealerships, airports and other businesses stay as productive as possible.
Never has fitness been such a huge craze than now. Jazzercise is one of the top fitness companies that continue to offer fun and effective workouts to people who want to get in shape and look their best. If you have always dreamed of being able to work out while you work, a Jazzercise franchise may be right for you.
Based out of the home, you only have to leave when you have classes to teach. Franchise owners are trained and certified by the Jazzercise corporate office, so no experience is required to get started in this exciting franchise.
4. Padgett Business Services

This franchise is highly ranked as one of the top individual tax preparation and accounting services providers for small businesses. You will work out of your home office to provide business advice, tax help, payroll, credit card processing and more.
