Start a home care franchise business with Certified Homecare Consulting. Why join a home care franchise when you can be the home care franchise?
Start a Home Care Franchise Business
Franchising your home care business means you are franchising your “proven method”. A home care franchise provides you with a proven business format to follow including operational procedures and marketing strategies that have been successful for other units eliminating the trial and error associated with starting a home care business from scratch, as well as much of the risk. You are franchising the complete method to conduct the home care business itself, such as the marketing plan and operations manuals as well as providing day to day support and management of other home care agencies.
Home Care franchise fees and royalties are used to fund operations at corporate headquarters of the home care franchisor, train and support franchisees, market and advertise the home care franchise brand, improve the quality of goods or services, and build the brand in the marketplace.
Brand Recognition means your home care franchisees will spend less money and effort on establishing the name or brand to potential customers.
The Home Care Franchise provides training and support in regard to day to day operations and procedures as well as sales and marketing strategies.
Protected Territories ensure that franchisees won’t lose business to a franchise owned by another entity.
Home care franchise companies implement a 3 tiered approach focusing on startup, support and brand awareness.
*Please keep in mind before you actually develop your franchise, you will need to make sure you are abiding by all state laws and regulations for your home care franchise business.
