Moms who want to do more require a path that travels between the pressure hours of a start-up, where everything rests on them, and the long hours of a job, where the boss calls the shots. For most mothers who do not enjoy being in the ownership position of a mature enterprise, this mid-way solution is a franchise business.

As its corporate social responsibility Franchise India seeks to empower mothers who want to do more with the Franchise opportunity of their choice.
