Franchises give you the ability to be your own boss without having to start a business from scratch. You get a tried-and-true business model to start from and help along the way.


Are you ready to leave corporate life and strike out on your own? Are you tired of putting your time, energy, and expertise into making someone else’s dream come true? Leaving corporate life is a big step and requires some soul searching and thoughtful planning. You may know you’re primed to be your own boss but aren’t quite sure what kind of business you’d like to start or how to create a business plan.

But don’t worry. You don’t have to get caught up in some multi-level marketing scheme or brainstorm the Next Big Thing. If you’ve got the dream and the drive, you don’t need the idea or the business plan if you invest in franchise ownership. Anyone with an entrepreneurial spirit can thrive with a franchise business. You have business opportunities as a corporate refugee.


The first step to escaping the corporate grind through franchise ownership is choosing the right franchise. Find an industry that matches your interests, values, and the skills you bring from your corporate experience. Determine what you can afford. And choose a franchise that allows you to create the kind of day-to-day experience you want. This will take some time and research.

Once you’ve settled on a franchise, you can get down to business, taking advantage of all the ways a franchise works to support you. Let’s look at a few:

  • Established brand: A huge benefit of buying a franchise is familiarity. Consumers understand the products and services offered and know the brand’s logos and ads. You won’t have to create brand recognition as that work has already been done by the franchisor.
  • Proven business model: You don’t have to come up with a successful business model when you buy a franchise. A business model has been created and tested and is already in action. You can research how it works and how it’s performing.
  • Peer group: Owning a franchise comes with a built-in network of other franchisees who can share their experience with you and offer support.
  • Room to grow: If your “be your own boss” plan includes owning more than one business, many franchisors offer opportunities to invest in multiple units. Why think small when you can grow a business empire?
  • Site selection: You won’t have to investigate or guess at best locations for your franchise. Most franchisors offer site selection as a perk of buying a franchise. They want you to succeed and do the research necessary to find the most suitable real estate.
  • Training: You’ll receive the know-how you need to run your franchise, which can include on-site, online, and ongoing training.
  • Marketing: A key component of a successful business is effective marketing. Franchisors usually dedicate considerable resources toward marketing the brand and promoting your business with the right message to the right consumer.
  • Ongoing support: You won’t be cut loose once your doors open. Far from it. Franchisors offer loads of ongoing support like on-site visits and new product development because they’re invested in your success.
