For aspiring green business owners who’d rather buy into a proven business model than start their own from scratch, these green franchises may be just the trick. There are a lot of options besides a franchise, of course. You can browse our green business startup articles, pick up a copy of Build a Green Small Business (McGraw-Hill), or you might think about buying an existing business and greening it up. But sometimes, people want to reduce their guesswork and just get cracking.
Check out these franchise options to become part of the green economy!
