Why would you want to be a franchisee?

Entrepreneurs looking to run their own business need look no further than owning a franchise, with the option of purchasing a new or an established resale territory which come available due to retirement. Like most major decisions in your life the choice needs some consideration. Launching a franchise in a completely new territory, is the option that allows you the most freedom to really make your mark; but takes a little more time to establish.

With a go it alone, start-up SME business, you need to do your research, ‘Is my product or service needed or wanted in the area?’ ‘Have I got the right location?’ and so much more. Launching a franchise comes with the reassurance that your franchisor will have done all the hard work, they will have based a territory on the levels of interest, demographics and target audience which are available for you to grow your business.

As an owner you will join a network of like-minded peers who have been there and done it all. Where you share the same ethos and support for one another throughout your journey as a franchisee and when the time comes, to retire or move on from your franchise to enjoy the rewards of your investment.

Setting up a franchise also brings with it huge benefits to the local community – you are a local business, with all that stands for but with the kudos of a well-known and trusted brand. Not only will you be providing a new service or product, but you will be bringing much needed employment to the local area as well.

Launched in the UK in 2005, Home Instead is the household name for home care, and is building strong relationships with the wider healthcare sector as the trusted provider of care. A forward-facing company that people aspire to work for, work with or recommend, so although your franchise would be starting from a blank page and require your time and effort, being part of a well-established and well-respected brand does a lot of that work for you.

Luke Spellman, Franchise Development Manager at Home Instead, explained: “Franchising provides huge opportunities to own your own business using a proven business model, as well as sharing in the success of your chosen brand. It’s an old saying about franchising, but a good one, that ‘you are in business for yourself, but not by yourself’.

“We have seen a number of new franchisees already coming on board this year, all excited to be making a difference not only for themselves, but for so many other people. Franchising rightfully continues to gain lots of interest, as a more reliable way to set up in business, it really is a win-win for both franchisor and franchisee.”

Specialising in caring for older people with a pioneering, relationship-led service that allows clients to remain in their own homes for as long as possible. Home care is a sector in demand and one that is continuing to grow.
