Across Europe and indeed the world, the market demand for children’s services and products is steadily rising. As more people wait longer to have children, they tend to have smaller families which means they have more disposable income to spend on investing in their child’s future.
As the marketplace grows more competitive than ever, parents are more aware than ever that children require a whole range of skills and knowledge to succeed in their careers in a vastly changing world. This means that the door is wide open for entrepreneurs to set up businesses and services that are focused on enriching the lives and minds of young children while simultaneously helping them on the path to success.
Early childhood and care franchises are some of the most popular children’s franchises across the world. Within the European Union alone, there are more than 30 million children under the age of 6 who are eligible to access these services, meaning there is a huge demand for creches and early education centres across the region.
While educational services are the most popular for children, the market itself has huge potential for niche business ideas. Parents know that while additional tutoring in subjects like Maths and English can be hugely beneficial to a child’s overall education, other pastimes such as music, sports, dancing, arts & crafts and coding can also play a huge role in the development of a child. Extra-circular activities are key to helping a child become a well-rounded individual.
You may be asking yourself why you should consider an established company to invest in rather than choosing to start up your own independent business?
The answer is simple: an independent business is a risky investment. Without the support of a parent company behind you, an independent business is more likely to fail within two years of opening due to unpredictable economic and financial difficulties.
A start-up means a lot more work at the beginning to build the company and grow market awareness without any guarantee on return on investment.
A franchise however, does not come with the same level of risk. It’s inherent stability even during tough economic climates, such as recessions, is reason enough to seriously consider a franchise investment.
For anyone looking to break into the children’s market, franchising may be your easiest route. Like a lot of other franchised business, you do not need a lot of experience to open your own children’s franchise, but you do need to be passionate about working with kids.
By owning a franchise, a person gets the unique opportunity to combine their love of working with children while running their own business.
For working parents especially, franchising also gives them the ability to be their own boss and create their own work schedule. This is a tantalising prospect for a lot of parents who feel that their current 9 to 5 schedule does not offer them the flexibility they need to balance both their professional and personal lives. This has never been clearer throughout 2020/2021 during the Covid-19 pandemic. As many countries across Europe dealt with lockdown and closures of businesses and schools, parents were also forced to cope with homeschooling their children while trying to work remotely at the same time. This prompted a lot of workers to re-assess their priorities; namely, it gave them the push to strike out on their own and become business owners.
