You’ve been thinking about it for some time and you think now is the time to buy an in-home care franchise business. When done correctly, it can be a smart business idea that helps you make money while providing expert care services for those in need.
However, it’s not a decision to take lightly. Before you rush into home care franchising, there are some critical things to consider. Some of these might be obvious – like if you have enough funding to run the business – while others are slightly more unknown. Today, we run through all the key points to keep in mind before making your decision:
How much does it cost to buy a home care franchise?
Clearly, this will be your number one concern. You want to know how much it will cost or how difficult it will be to raise the funds to finance this project. In truth, we can’t give you a precise figure as it depends on each franchise opportunity.
However, we can give you some hope! The good news is that there are systems making it easier for you to start a home care franchise. For instance, government funding is available for businesses in the aged care and disability sector. So, it’s possible to receive money from the NDIS or Home Care Packages to fund your franchise.
Moreover, at Home Caring, we operate a 50/50 partnership for all franchisees. This means that your initial investment is cut by 50%. We fund the other half, making it a more viable investment opportunity for you. At the same time, you still get 50% of all profits and a generous salary package on top of this.
Overall, funding a home care franchise might be a lot easier than you initially thought!
Do you need to be a home care expert to run a franchise business in this industry?
Another very logical question. After all, if you’re running a business that focuses on delivering top-quality in-home care services, shouldn’t you know a thing or two about what you’re doing?
Well, yes, it can help – but it’s not a necessity.
You will be the owner of your in-home care franchise, not an employee directly working with clients. So, you don’t need to be an expert in this field – you just need money and a clear business plan. The longer you spend in this field, the more you pick up anyway. Plus, Home Caring provides extensive Training Support for every franchise owner. In essence, you can be educated on everything relating to the home care sector, fueling your knowledge and making it easier for you to get to grips with your job.
Furthermore, if you’re not an expert, you can always hire experts. As long as the people working below you are qualified to deal with all elements of home care, there won’t be any problems. YOU don’t need to be an expert, but you should hire people that are.
What other support do you get as a franchise owner?
A huge benefit of getting involved in home care franchising is that you receive more support than if you started your own business. Sure, you can argue that starting from scratch allows you to retain more of the profits for yourself. But, you’re left out there in the unknown world all by yourself. This makes it significantly harder for you to run a successful business from the beginning.
As a franchise owner, you are given so much extra support beyond the initial startup help. A Home Caring franchise partner receives the following benefits:
- Ongoing training
- Operations support
- Marketing support
We touched upon how the training can help you earlier, supplying you with key industry knowledge that helps you become a better business owner.
Operations support is basically there to help you run your home care franchise to the best of your abilities. It includes information on things like best practices, business planning, compliance management and more. You get hands-on help with regular location visits from experts that can assess your business model and assist you in making changes or improvements.
All the while, you get dedicated marketing support that promotes your business to your target audience. It will help you spread the word far and wide to ensure people sign up for your services and you make a profit.
Alongside all of this, there’s 24/7 support whenever you need it. If you have any questions or queries, you can contact the Home Caring support team for answers.
Is this a profitable business venture?
Lastly, you’re wondering whether or not this is worth your time. Sure, you get loads of support with funding and running your home care franchise, but is it actually profitable?
In short, it is!
An in-home care franchise can be extremely profitable as these services are in-demand from the public. The key is having a successful business model – which is exactly what we give all of our franchisees. Don’t just take our word for it, we have a series of success stories that prove this is a very profitable venture. Plus, we even won a top franchising award back in 2021 because of how successful our business model is, and how profitable it has been for our franchisees.
To summarise, buying a home care franchise is a wonderful idea. You’re getting involved in something that won’t just make a lot of money, it will leave a lot of people with expert care services to cater to their specific needs. Funding is easy to come by and you receive lots of financial support from our team. Alongside this, you get all kinds of additional support to ensure your business runs as smoothly as possible.
