What are the types of home services franchises?

When you really sit down and think about, there are dozens of home services franchises out there, with many more in the works.  As more homeowners decide to stay where they are instead of selling, these businesses are virtually recession-proof.   In fact, it seems there are more types of home services franchise opportunities than ever. 

Instead of being limited to a handful of home remodeling business or a carpet cleaning franchise, entrepreneurs have a wide range of franchise opportunities to choose from.  They include businesses that do custom closets, in-home senior daycare, garage organization systems, furniture repairs, home inspectors, house cleaning, lawn services, pest control and more.  Anything that can be done for the homeowner probably has a few franchises associated with it. 

If you are want to own a business with relatively low overhead, a flexible schedule and high profit margins, then it may be time to consider home services franchises.  They offer a lower start-up cost than most bricks-and-mortar franchises because most of them are mobile businesses that are based out of the home.  Depending on your where your strengths lie, a home services franchise may allow you to be more “hands-on” than a lot of other business models.  In fact, many franchisees in the home services industry are run by owner-operators who were once independent contractors.
