5 Franchise Options for Creative Minded People

Designers Working on a Document

Are you a rule breaker? Do you get excited by using your creative mindset on a daily basis? If so, you might be a great franchise owner.

Creative minded people often shy away from franchise ownership with the fear that they won’t have enough flexibility to stretch their creative muscles. This isn’t the case. In fact, creative people oftentimes do well because of how they use their business to connect with their customers and turn a profit.

Not every industry is a good fit though. Here are five franchise options where creative minded people excel.

1. Advertising & Marketing

When it comes to marketing, you have to continually innovate new ways of reaching people. If you’re both business savvy and creative minded, an advertising or marketing franchise could be a good fit.

On the surface, advertising and marketing franchises can look pretty cut and dry. For example, selling promotional products through Instant Imprints might seem like you’re only selling items, but customers rely on you for your creativity in helping them market their business. There are also other creative franchises that let your imagination come to life, such as the TapSnap photo entertainment franchise.

2. Children’s Franchises

If your creativity makes you feel like a kid at heart, a children’s franchise might be a better option for you. There are a variety of kid-friendly franchises to choose from. If you like teaching kids and are musically inclined, School of Rock is an excellent option. If you like watching kids’ imaginations come to life, you might want to try a kid party planning franchise like Teddy Bear Mobile.

3. Entertainment Franchises

If you’re creative, entertaining people comes naturally. In the franchise world, there are a variety of ways you can entertain your customers and make a profit. For example, you can help your customers plan dream vacations with Cruise Planners or Expedia CruiseShipCenters. Or, if interior design fits your personal creativity better, you can start a framing business, such as Fancy Art,*N.F.P.  

4. Fitness Franchises

Fitness franchises might seem like a surprising addition to this list. However, in order for fitness to be fun and engaging, it requires continual change. No one wants to fall into a rut. The more creative you can be about your fitness offerings and how to get people into your gym, the more successful your franchise will be.

There are also some fun fitness franchises, such as Launch Trampoline Park and Rebounderz Indoor Trampoline Arena, which lend themselves to more creative marketing ventures and ideas.

5. Pet Franchises

Pet owners love their cats and dogs like they’re their own children. If you work well with four-legged clients, a pet franchise might be a great creative business for you.

Wag’n Tails is a mobile pet grooming service that lets you travel to your customers’ homes and give their fur babies a hair cut. Wag N Wash lets your customers come to you for all-natural foods, products, grooming, self-wash, and a bakery.

Let Your Creativity Turn Into Your Profitability

Creative minded people make great franchise owners because they’re able to think outside of the marketing box. This helps turn business ownership into a more enjoyable endeavor, and a more profitable one too.
