What Is Discovery Day at FirstLight Home Care?

At FirstLight Home Care, “Discovery Day” is also known as “ Mutual Evaluation Day.” Discovery Day is the last step in FirstLight Home Care’s franchise awarding process that allows potential franchise owners and FirstLight to confirm if both are a right fit for each other.

The Discovery Day is perhaps the most important step in the due diligence process.  It allows the potential franchise owner to meet and spend time with the entire FirstLight management team, answer any final questions, and ensure they are fully informed of the opportunities, responsibilities, challenges, risks, awards, and benefits of owning a FirstLight Home Care franchise. We don’t take starting a business lightly and neither should our potential candidates. Our Discovery Days are by personal invitation only for potential FirstLight franchise owner candidates who, during the recruiting process and evaluations, have shown their sincere interest and specific characteristics we look for in each of our owners.

We like to make Discovery Day a comfortable, relaxed, casual day that’s dedicated to answering any and all questions from our potential owners. It’s an extremely interactive day with opportunities for everyone to get to know each other better and to ensure that potential candidates fully understand the strong potential partnership they would be investing in with FirstLight. We at FirstLight, want to ensure that each potential new franchise owner has invested in the “right” model and is positioned for nothing short of achievement.

After Discovery Day, we ask each potential owner if they approve of us as a Franchisor.  In turn, we, as a management team evaluate each potential owner as to their “fit” within the FirstLight model.  Only if both FirstLight and the potential owner agree on a mutual fit, do we proceed with timelines towards grand opening, training classes, and getting ready for another award winning FirstLight location!
