What to Know Before Joining a Home Care Franchise
At FirstLight® Home Care, we believe that franchising can help entrepreneurs
realize their dreams of owning their own business. But any business opportunity,
whether you’re opening your own brick-and-mortar store or joining
a senior care franchise, is a big decision. Before investing your valuable
time and hard-earned money, you need to do your homework.
International Franchise Association has an extensive list of questions to ask before selecting a franchise.
We recommend you read through the full list and do your due diligence
before choosing a franchise network. The FirstLight team has chosen three
questions that we believe are most important to us and our values.
How Happy Are Current and Past Franchisees With the Company?
If you own a business, before you hire a new staff member, you’ll
most likely check their references. They may say they are perfect for
your open position, but the best way to truly know is to find out what
past employers think about them. The same goes for when you are joining
a franchise. We offer franchisee testimonials on our site so that you
can read what a few of them have to say about their experience with us.
But we don’t stop there. FirstLight also uses a third-party service
from Franchise Business Review to get honest feedback from our current
franchise owners. This has helped us win their Top 50 Franchisee Satisfaction
Award six years in a row. In the interest of transparency, we share all
of our survey results with our franchise owners. We invite you to reach
out to owners past and present to directly hear from them.
