Summer is a great time to relax, enjoy the great outdoors and do a lot of business. But what businesses see a boost during the summer months? America’s Best Franchises knows which franchise opportunities have the chance to thrive as the weather warms up. If you are interested in a business that’s at its best during the summer, we encourage you to check out ice cream franchises, lawn care franchises and moving franchises and find the opportunity that will give you the summer lifestyle you’re looking for.

Frozen Dessert and Ice Cream Franchises

Who doesn’t want a sweet treat during the dog days of summer? Whether it’s shave ice, frozen yogurt, snow cones or ice cream, your frozen dessert franchise is likely to thrive in the summer months, when customers are looking for delicious ways to cool down.

Ice cream franchises often have lower overhead costs than other restaurants, thanks to a specialty product and no required cooking. You won’t need to hire cooks, waiters or hosts. Depending on the franchise brand you choose, you’ll just need a few smiling faces to serve up sweets to your customers. Start exploring ice cream franchises today; by this time next year, you could be serving up frozen treats to your community.

Lawn Care Franchises

Summer is the season of backyard barbecues, neighborhood block parties and kids playing outside. During the summer, not only do people want to spend more time outside, but they don’t want to be the ones sweating outside cutting grass and fighting weeds. That’s where your lawn care franchise comes in.

You will hire a team responsible for maintaining customers’ lawns and if you don’t want to be on the mower yourself, you can operate as an executive owner and handle the financial and strategic aspects of the business. Explore our lawn care franchises and discover if a recurring revenue, executive ownership model is right for you.

Moving Franchises

According to, the peak season for Americans to move homes is between April and September, coinciding with kids’ summer break from school. With movers being in particularly high demand between June and August, moving franchises thrive during the summer months. If you are looking for a low-cost, executive ownership franchise opportunity, we encourage you to consider a moving franchise.

Because of low costs, a small labor force, and the option to run your moving franchise from home, your business will be up and running sooner than you might think. Check out America’s Best Franchises’ moving franchises to start your journey to owning a franchise that could thrive during the summer months.

By next summer, you could be at the helm of a thriving franchise business in the frozen dessert, lawn care or moving industries. As you discover the franchise opportunities that have the potential to thrive during the summer, you are sure to find some that pique your interest. The next step to franchise ownership is reaching out to the franchise brands you’re interested in for more information about their ownership opportunities.
