Why Franchise Ownership is Appealing to Women 

Owning a franchise offers both the flexibility and independence of being a small business owner along with the support and infrastructure of a large corporation, making it an ideal opportunity for anyone interested in becoming an entrepreneur. In addition, it turns out that many of the  general skill sets common to women, including organization, quick thinking, communication, and financial awareness, make owning a franchise a great fit for female entrepreneurs. 

It is no surprise then that more and more women with a strong background in business are seeking franchise opportunities that allow them to follow their passion, meet their business ownership goals, and fit their investment budgets. In fact, according to the Women in Franchising 2021 Special Report, over the last decade, there has been a 38% increase in women-owned franchise businesses, and of all new franchises opened in the past 24 months, 32% are women-owned businesses. 

Women often choose franchise ownership because the support of the franchisor can maximize the chance of success while mitigating some of the risks associated with business ownership. Among the benefits of franchise ownership that make it an attractive option for women include: 

  • Ability to pursue something that they are passionate about while also being successful.
  • The opportunity to be a part of an established and well-known brand. 
  • Access to the powerful network that franchising offers for collaboration and mentorship. 
  • The sense of security and flexibility that’s commonly challenging to achieve in the corporate business world.
