HOW TO CONVERT YOUR HOME
CARE BUSINESS TO A FIRSTLIGHT
Our conversion process is simple, straightforward and always pressure-free. We want you to join FirstLight Home Care because it’s the right fit for you and your clients, as well as FirstLight. We’ll take the time to make sure you get all the information you need to make a decision you’re comfortable with and that serves the best interests of you and your clients.
HERE’S HOW THE PROCESS USUALLY WORKS:
- Contact us today (online through the below form or by phone) to start the process
- Explore our franchise business model in detail through our online Virtual Brochure
- Complete the franchise application
- Accept our invitation to visit our corporate offices and spend a day with us at Meet the Team Day
- We’ll talk about everything that’s important to you and what it would be like to work together
- At that time, we can decide if our conversion program is the right fit for you, and for us
- We’ll review your operating data and finalize deferred royalty levels and timing
Once the above steps have been completed, your franchise agreement will be delivered to you, so it can be signed and you can begin the conversion process.
We will then work with you to complete a series of support calls and checklist steps to prepare for a professional transition from your business to the FirstLight Home Care platform. To ensure a smooth transition, we will agree on an effective date that allows for all aspects of the FirstLight operating system to be rolled into your business without causing any disruptions, and will work with you on-site, in your office, to assist you as you get started.
Franchisee in Clearwater, FL
What compelled me to partner with FirstLight was the extensive experience the leadership team had in the space. After meeting with several leading brands, FirstLight was the only brand that asked me why I wanted to be in this business—the others just wanted to talk about growth and financial opportunities. FirstLight was highly interested in whether or not I was a good fit for the culture they were trying to create, which was very important to me.
