“Interest in home-based businesses is greater than ever in light of the pandemic. For anyone considering starting a home business, franchise ownership is a great way to go,” said Michelle Rowan, president & COO of Franchise Business Review. “The key is to find an industry that excites you and then do your due diligence to find a franchise company that is invested in helping you succeed. From our perspective, franchisee satisfaction is one of the most important factors to consider when doing your research.” 

To identify the companies on the list of the Top Home-Based Franchises, Franchise Business Review analyzed 18 months of data from over 300 franchise brands, representing over 28,000 franchise owners, that participated in our satisfaction research. Franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including financial opportunity, leadership, training & support, and the franchisee community.

“It can be extremely difficult to start a business on your own, but many home-based franchises are affordable options that also offer a proven business model backed by the help and support of the franchisor – if you find the right opportunity,” said Eric Stites, founder and CEO of Franchise Business Review. “Our 2020 list of the Top Home-Based Franchises includes 50 fantastic businesses that can be started as a home-based business — all of which have outstanding satisfaction with their franchise owners based on our research.”
