Why Go it Alone?

The advantages of joining an established home care franchise system

Non-medical home care is a noble profession. All across the country, entrepreneurs are working hard to serve the nation’s growing elderly population, allowing them to peacefully age in place at home.

The aging population of the United States brings great demand for home care services, so business opportunities in the field continue to grow; however, it can be hard work, and even after years of struggle, it isn’t always easy to reach enough name recognition and market penetration to keep the business sustainable for the long-run.

Advantages of Franchise Conversions

Small-business owners don’t have to go it alone, though. Joining an existing franchise system offers many advantages, especially when looking down the road to prepare for an exit strategy. The first advantage is name recognition. An established franchise system can have the geographic reach and marketing process to establish top-of-mind awareness of its brand.

Back-Office Support

Joining an established franchise system like FirstLight Home Care provides more than just a recognizable name. We offer national marketing and operational support for franchise owners to help them strengthen and expand their businesses. We’ve spent years developing and testing back-office systems to help franchise owners with all aspects of their business from recruitment to finance.

Exit Strategy

At some point, entrepreneurs will want to sell their businesses or step away from day-to-day operations. Joining a franchise system can help position your business for maximum resale value when it’s time to exit. The back-office support systems can make it easier to hand over the reins to new management, while maintaining ownership of the business, too.
