Women Based Franchise Opportunity Guide

Women franchisees are present in every franchise business sector - as well as serving as CEOs and presidents of franchise brands. While there is no such thing as a "women-only" franchise, there are franchise opportunities chosen more frequently by women than by men.

Reasons for choosing one franchise opportunity or industry over another vary with each individual, but over the years some common themes have appeared. Many women have chosen franchise brands that provide them with the flexibility to balance work and family, such as home-based businesses. Some franchise opportunities can combine work and family, such as and or after-school programs, for example. Other industries often chosen by women in franchising include hair salons, and appraisal, senior services, lab testing services, and many more. Some young mothers even have founded franchise brands to meet their own needs, starting with friends, then turning it into a business, which they later franchised.

Look below to see the myriad of women-based franchise opportunities, where franchisors are eagerly seeking more women as franchisees.
