The homecare franchise has reached its impressive milestone with the newest franchisee opening an office in Dorchester
Home Instead Senior Care UK has certainly made a lasting impression since launching in 2006. The homecare franchise has not only grown to take care of over 14,000 seniors across the country but has done so whilst reaping in numerous prestigious honours like 46 Care Quality Commission outstanding ratings, two consecutive number one spots on the EF Top 100 list and awards at bfa HSBC Franchise Awards ceremonies. Now the franchisor has reached another huge milestone by opening its 200th franchise.
The man to carry it across the threshold is Dorchester franchisee Romesh Dharmasingham who officially opened his new business during a gathering at Chester Cathedral. Several high-profile people in the franchise industry attended the event, including Home Instead Senior Care UK’s managing director and previous Elite Franchise cover star Martin Jones and the bfa’s CEO Pip Wilkins.
Commenting on the opening, Dharmasingham said: “It is truly an honour to open the 200th office of this fine organisation. This is an inspirational business which is making such a difference to the lives of older people and I look forward to contributing to its future success.”
Congratulating the new franchisee, Wilkins commented: “Huge congratulations to Home Instead on reaching such an impressive milestone. Sometimes people who are involved in strong, successful franchise systems don’t always realise what an inspiration and example they really are. When you see a business that has an eye on the future as well as the present, never standing still and, above all, franchisor and franchisees working together for the good of the whole network it truly is a great example of how franchising should be done.”
The opening of Home Instead Senior Care UK’s new office highlights just how successful the marriage of franchising and the care industry is. After all, over the past decade franchises like Caremark, Bluebird Care and Heritage Healthcare have all scored impressive wins across the board. Hopefully, Home Instead Senior Care UK’s 200th franchisee will inspire even more people to take the leap into franchising.
