Franchising – Is It For Me?

If you are looking for a career change in mid life? Or you are looking to return to work when the children are becoming more self sufficient? Perhaps your thoughts have turned to running a franchise and whether or not running a business from home could possibly work well for you? And many people do wonder about franchising – is it for me?

Franchising is a way of getting a business up and running more quickly, safely and easily than starting a business from scratch. With a franchise someone has already taken the risk and trialled the idea, they have already fallen into the pitfalls and bear traps along the way that inevitably seem to happen in business, which means that you don’t have to do the same.

Starting a new business alone and from scratch can be a terribly risky thing to do and by buying a franchise you are in essence mitigating that risk, by buying the expertise and knowledge of people that have trod the same path before you, made the mistakes that inevitably happen, rectified them, learned from them and found a way to avoid them happening again in the future.

Dating and Personal Matchmaking as a niche have been great areas to be in, over the last 2 decades, as we have witnessed boom times within the industry and enjoyed exponential growth during that period – more so than almost every other industry. With numbers increasing from less than 2 million participants at the start of the new millennium to around 16 million today. What other industry could claim that sort of level of growth in modern times?

A Dating or Personal Matchmaking franchise is one that seems to work best of all for women and at Dating Options we have a large majority of female employees and franchisees in comparison to men, with 86% of our staff being female, which is again something fairly unique to the industry.
