Working a 9-5 job, for a company where you’re not in control of your own time, can be frustrating for many aspiring entrepreneurs. A home-based franchise allows you to not only be your own boss, but also to have the flexibility to structure your own day. You will find yourself with time for personal pursuits you may have previously neglected. Being able to work whenever you want, whether it’s at night or first thing in the morning, is a great advantage for franchisees juggling children, appointments, or other obligations. Today’s technology makes it easier than ever to stay connected with your customers and suppliers at any time of the day, in any time zone, at your greatest convenience.
Home-based businesses are also more efficient when it comes to actually opening the business itself. In contract to businesses where a physical storefront is needed, requiring extensive location scouting, an AEON home-based franchise can be open for business within a matter of weeks.
A home-based franchise can also eliminate (or drastically reduce) commute time. The ability to perform all your duties from the comfort of your home eliminates the hassle of dealing with commuter traffic and can even save you precious hours of sleep.
Lower Financial Investment
One of the most attractive aspects of running a home-based franchise is the more affordable startup costs. 64% of small business owners start with $10,000 or less, and in many cases are primarily self-funded, with no need to take out a loan. Home-based franchisees also avoid the cost and hassle of construction, rent, utility bills, and other expenses associated with an office space. Running a home-based franchise inherently keeps costs low and allows you to save for other expenses that can help you grow the business.
Operating a home-based franchise can also come with often-overlooked, though significant tax benefits. Some franchisees may be able to deduct a portion of your home’s expenses, such as mortgage interest, property taxes, utilities and repairs and maintenance, against your business income. While not every home-based business will qualify for these benefits, do some research and learn what benefits you’re eligible for, and how-to quality. You could end up saving a lot of money.
Your AEON Territory
You might be wondering: If I’m running a home-based franchise, how does my territory work? What is the geographic scope in which my business is allowed to operate? We offer territories based on population in specific markets. You will not receive an exclusive territory. Which allows you to sell anywhere throughout the District of Columbia and the 50 states comprising the United States of America. We will be offering franchises to be located within specific territories. Ideally, we would limit the number of franchises to be operated in a territory to 1 per 10,000 businesses then being operated within the territory.
