Whether you’re considering opening a franchise business and need help along the way, wanting to become a business consultant, or looking to grow your existing franchise business, this article will answer some frequently asked questions (FAQs) about the 2023 most profitable franchises and franchisee opportunities to suit the needs of those seeking to spend more time with family.

What are the most profitable franchise businesses for 2023?

The 2023 most profitable franchise businesses will be largely determined by the level of customer demand and the individual ownership of the franchise. Low-cost franchises such as vending machines, janitorial services, and fast-casual restaurants still dominate the marketplace. Home-based businesses like mobile and virtual services, legal and employment services, staffing, and real estate remain popular franchises. Additionally, online businesses such as fitness, education, e-commerce, food delivery services, and virtual assistance offer budding entrepreneurs a range of profitable options.

What are the benefits of starting a franchise business?

There are many advantages to owning a franchise business. Franchisees benefit from access to proven systems, procedures, products, services, and market knowledge from the franchisor, as well as significant name-brand recognition, depending on the franchise. With a franchise, success becomes more predictable than starting a business from scratch, plus, a franchisee will benefit from a built-in network of support.

What are the costs of starting a franchise?

The total cost of a franchise can vary widely depending on the business model and associated needs. Initial set-up costs typically include the franchise fee, which is the right to use the franchisor’s system and proprietary materials. You’ll also need to cover the cost of any real estate you wish to use for a physical location. Depending on your choice of franchise, you may amortize other costs over time, such as inventory, equipment, and opening a cash reserve. Some franchisors offer financing, as well.

How can I find the most profitable franchise opportunities?

The IFPG’s membership network of more than 1,300 franchisors, franchise consultants, and vendor members offers franchise seekers a comprehensive list of vetted and approved franchise opportunities. Additionally, a free franchise opportunity search via IFPG’s website can help applicants narrow down their criteria before discussing their options with an IFPG franchise business consultant.

How long should I expect the process to take?

The time necessary to become a franchise owner depends on the franchise itself. The process can usually be completed in a few weeks with the help of an experienced consultant. However, some franchises may require additional time depending on the services and products offered. In any case, a well-executed franchisee agreement can help mitigate legal expenses and streamline the process for both parties.

Are there any tax benefits associated with owning a franchise?

Tax savings are a unique benefit of owning a franchise. In many cases, franchisees can write off a portion of their initial franchise investment as a business expense. Furthermore, the potential tax savings from the sale of inventory, home office deductions, rent, and travel expenses are some of the many benefits of franchising.

Should I choose to buy an existing franchise or start one from scratch?

The decision to buy an existing franchise or start one from scratch comes down to a host of factors, such as the type of business you’re interested in, the franchise’s competitive landscape, and how much money you have to invest. Generally, new franchisees may have the advantage of receiving additional training and assistance setup costs may be lower than buying an existing franchise. On the other hand, an existing franchise may be more profitable and may require less time to get off the ground.

The IFPG network provides a wealth of resources and expertise to assist franchise seekers in exploring the 2023 most profitable franchise opportunities.
