A Good Introduction to the Basics May 17, 2005
Note the words "Home Based" in the title of this book. This lets out all the burger-chicken-fish places and limits the choice to those kinds of business that might be done in a home. And wisely, the first page of the book asks the question, Is It Legal. There are an awful lot of restrictions on running a business out of your home. The book points out some common ones, but you need to investigate local laws. Some of the businesses listed in this book wouldn't be legal to run from a home in most places.
After that, up to page 108 in the book is about general rules of running a business and the advantages and disadvantages of a franchise. Advantage: it should be a proven concept that is simply being replicated elsewhere. Disadvantage: you have to run the business exactly as the franchiser tells you.
After that the book lists some generalized information about 300+ franchise operations. Maybe one of them will fit your needs. Note that in their top ten list, eight of the ten have something to do with cleaning.
