Driving down the highway, you will undoubtedly see lots of cars, trucks and vans that look like billboards. These vehicles are not only great advertising for a franchise business, they ARE the franchise business.
Mobile franchise businesses have become incredibly popular over the last few decades as Americans get busier and expect their services delivered on-demand to their doorstep. Today, practically any service you can get from a brick-and-mortar or online business is also available from a mobile business.
For the franchise owners, they are great for several reasons all the time, and one BIG reason during the current pandemic.
The business can be operated from their home, so they don’t need to worry about finding and building out any real estate.
The overhead costs are low since the business only requires a home office and a vehicle to operate.
They are easily scalable. Growing your business only requires an extra vehicle and one or more employees.
Many are semi-absentee, meaning franchise owners only need to spend 10–15 hours per week working on their business while the staff is able to handle the daily operations in the business.
They make social distancing easy. This is a big reason why franchise experts are forecasting terrific growth for mobile franchise businesses in the near future. Customers concerned about venturing out, going into a business and sitting in a crowded waiting room are far more likely to order a mobile service to come to their home and handle things for them from a safe distance.
In many cases, a mobile business is able to work without any contact with the customer whatsoever, making them incredibly appealing in this day and age.
