A Window to the Womb franchise is a low cost franchise option that allows you to enter the lucrative market of 3D baby scans.
Window to the Womb have been in this niche industry for a 10 years now and has grown to a rather substantial business. This is evidenced in the fact that Window to the Womb have an arrangement with Kiddicare, one of the largest retailers of baby and toddler supplies in the UK, to carry out scans in their stores. At present Window to the Womb have 2 studios as well as options to open in other Kiddicare stores.

Assuming that any charges for Window to the Womb are pure profit, and you operate at maximum capacity then you could see as much as £7,200 per week. But this is based on 3 scans per hour at 20 hours with the most expensive package. The reality seems to be somewhat lessened. That doesn’t mean that Window to the Womb couldn’t prove to be a profitable, in fact I suspect that as this trend continues your business could well grow.
This is however a niche business and the requirements for being a franchisee seems to be heavily invested in you being a sonographer.
