1. Starbucks

If there’s a franchise that has the best interests of part-time workers at heart, then it is Starbucks. The coffee shop chain provides workers who put in 20 or more hours each week with a fantastic benefits package called “Your Special Blend.” It’s a unique combo of remuneration perks, medical benefits, and assistance of all kinds. What’s even more attractive is that Starbucks offer part-time employees dental, disability and vision benefits.
