5 Franchise Opportunities for Moms with Kids

0 votes
Here's a common situation: a woman has children and quits her job to stay home with them. After a short period of time, she wants to enter back into a career but she worries about having the independence and flexibility that she will need to continue to take care of her children. 


How does she meet both of these needs? 


Enter: Franchise Ownership


Owning a franchise is a way for a mom to work inside or outside the home, on her time and her schedule...or perhaps, more realistically, her children's schedules. Owning a franchise can give these moms the outlet they crave and the flexibility they need. 


There are virtually limitless franchise opportunities for moms with young kids. Here are just five ideas for franchise concepts that can work with a busy schedule.  

Indoor Playground Franchise

For a mom with young children, there can be no better franchise opportunity than an indoor playground! Children can play before and after school, making friends and being active nearly every day. 


As a bonus, some indoor playground franchises double as coffee shops or restaurants, giving parents and caretakers a place to relax while their children run and play. This doubly effective business model attracts a wider variety of customers than an opportunity that is exclusively a playground. 


Carpet Cleaning Franchise

Owning a business that specializes in cleaning carpets can be incredibly flexible to fit your schedule and your needs. Whether you are operating the office or fulfilling appointments, carpet cleaning is definitely something you can work into your schedule. Some opportunities even allow you to work from your home, without having an office at all. 


Some cleaning franchises do not require that you adhere to specific operation times, adding an extra level of flexibility. An added benefit of owning all that carpet cleaning equipment: you can clean up the inevitable chocolate milk spills on your living room rug. 


Coffee Franchise

Starting a franchise specializing in coffee proves that Starbucks isn't the only place to get this delicious beverage. The wide variety of coffee franchises specialize in just one type of coffee, add in tea, or go whole hog with smoothies and pastries as well. 


Any food franchise with a drive up is a relatively safe bet, and coffee can certainly deliver that. An additional perk is that coffee shops often open early in the morning and close in the afternoon, so moms can be home with their kids after school. 


Tutoring Franchise

Starting a franchise that specializes in education or tutoring is very similar to starting a preschool or daycare. The main difference is tutoring is focused on education and caters to children of all ages in school. Plus, owning a tutoring franchise is a great way to brush up on school subjects like math, science, and literature so that you can help your own children when they reach that point in school. 


Fitness Franchise

If you are passionate about fitness and want to own a franchise, the options are virtually limitless. A fitness franchise can be anything from a full-scale gym to a small, speciality fitness center. There are franchise options for every type of fitness, from yoga to Zumba to kickboxing to running clubs. The list goes on. 


The bottom line is that there are boundless franchise opportunities for moms with young children. Find a franchise opportunity that is flexible for your schedule and fits your family's needs.
