Business-to-Business Franchises (B2B)

Travel may be required. The success of your franchise business will depend on your ability to network, deliver on your promise of a good service or product, and provide your customers on time delivery within budget.

Business-to-Consumer Franchises (B2C)

As an owner of a B2C franchise, you may work evenings and weekends depending on the availability of your customer base. Examples of popular B2C franchises are home health care, home cleaning, painting, maintenance, and child care services. As you strive to build quality relationships with your customers, it is important to remember how influential their feedback will be to the development of your business.
