Hottest Franchise Business Opportunities For the Work From Home Mom

By Candice Clem

Anyone who has ever been or grown up with a stay at home mom knows that stay at home moms are some of the most hard-working people out there. As the kids grow a bit older and start heading off to school, many moms find themselves in a position where they still need to be around the home to shuttle kids around, go to soccer games and generally be available for their little ones, but would still like to earn some extra income in their free time. For these moms, entering the work force doesn't always make sense, and that's where work from home franchises really begin to make sense.

With a home based franchise, the work at home mom can set her own schedule, choose from a large variety of different work from home franchise opportunities, and in most cases choose how little or how much to work each week based on her particular schedule. To that end, if you're a stay at home mom looking for a new home based franchise, take a look at a few of the Hottest Home Business Franchise Opportunities For The Work From Home Mom.

Cold, Hard Cash

ACFN ATM's franchise program was birthed from the common questions, "Wouldn't it be convenient to have an ATM machine right here?" With the advent of the debit card it seems that no one carries cash anymore, yet many businesses, restaurants, bars and movie theaters still only accept cash. ACFN ATMs are a must have for locations where cash is needed and the ability to place these kiosk ATM machines virtually anywhere has made it possible for people to have instant access to cash in places where it was previously impossible. As an ACFN franchisee you'll place your machines in high traffic areas where people need cash, keep your machines stocked and running and collect plenty of profits from convenience fees charged to the customers which typically range from $2-$4 per transaction. Image having your ATM at an outdoor concert where a couple thousand people all need to buy a beverage and dinner and need to take out cash to do so and you can start to see how $2-$4 really starts to add up quickly.

Cool Jobs for Hot Weather

As the weather heats up, one thing every barbecue or summer get together needs is plenty of ice. This is the idea behind Polar Ice Express Inc., the self-service ice vending station. Like other vending machine franchises, Polar Ice is of the, "insert money, get desired item" business model, but Polar Ice has really put a lot of thought into something most people never really think about: ice. The system they sell consists of an Arctic-Temp AR 1000 Ice Maker that is attached to an ice bagging and vending machine that will allow you to vend up to 300, 20lb bags of ice per day. The machine has wheels and only takes up as much space as a standard parking space, so it's completely mobile. Just park, hookup water and electricity and you're off! Standard components make repairs and maintenance easy for any standard electrician or AC personnel. If you're interested in this vending machine franchise, get in touch with Polar Ice and request more information about this cool home business opportunity.

Ready to Clean Up?

At first glance, you may not think that a home based franchise from ElizaJ seems that much different that the port-a-potties you could see driving by a typical construction site, but ElizaJ has decided to take a refreshing approach to the utterly important and often overlooked portable restroom industry. ElizaJ's products are designed to provide portable restroom services that not only get the job done, but actually create a pleasant experience and combine the convenience of a portable restroom with a series of products that have been described as, "elegant, refined and discreet." This home based business opportunity is part of a $1.5 billion/year industry and with parties, outdoor weddings and catered events seeking a much more elegant alternative to the typical portable restroom, ElizaJ is poised to stake claim to a large chunk of this booming industry.

Even if you've never owned or even been a part of a business before, a home based franchise is the perfect way to get into a unique and exciting business while receiving all of the training needed to succeed coupled with the solid business plans and ongoing training offered by nearly every one of the many work from home franchises. We've looked at just a few different types of home based franchises, but there are plenty more work from home franchise opportunities in nearly every type of business, so don't be afraid to get your feet wet with your own business as these work from home franchises can be one of the easiest ways to start and run a business that will generate serious income fast. Like anything in life, with a home based franchise, you get out what you put into it, so if you're a work from home mom with a desire to invest a little startup money and your time into something that's all but guaranteed to pay off, a work from home franchise will be the best choice for you, and your family.
