What’s the Best Franchise to Start?
Have you’ve decided this is the year to finally become a business owner by purchasing a franchise? Then the next step is to research the best franchises to start.
Of course, there are a number of factors to consider as you think about becoming a franchisee. You’ll want to be sure to choose an opportunity that:
- Matches your personal skills
- Aligns with your strengths
- Fits with your lifestyle goals.
It’s also important to turn to reliable sources about projected business trends. This will enable you to enter an industry with a thriving future in franchising.
Why Start a Child Care Franchise?
Entrepreneur magazine has been covering the franchise industry for over four decades. In its annual list of projections about the best franchises to start, child care is listed as one of ten leading categories. The child care industry is estimated to grow. Current estimates show more than 850,000 child care operators expected to be running in the US by the end of this year. In addition, the revenue for this industry, as a whole, is projected to hit $52.5 billion.
These numbers certainly shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone who’s familiar with the country’s need for reliable child care. Statistics, including these, show there is a strong need for local child care solutions:
- Approximately 12.5 million American children attend some form of child care
- 58.1% of mothers with children under a year old are in the workforce
- Approximately 70% of mothers with children under 18 years old in the workforce

We never set out to build such an expansive network of franchise locations. Actually, our initial goal was to operate a small number of centers with superior child care services. However, our focus on delivering high-quality child care using efficient and effective workflows inspired others to inquire about repeating our success in new locations. The result is a carefully honed model for business success that never loses sight of the ultimate goal — providing families with the best child care possible.
