How can I get started on setting up my own Caremark franchise?
For more information about buying a Caremark home care franchise, enter your full name and email address in the contact form below and click on the ‘Request Free Information’ button. A member of the company’s franchise recruitment team will then contact you.
The company has developed a comprehensive step by step recruitment process that every prospective franchisee must go through before they become the owner of their own Caremark business.
This includes an initial meeting, at which the franchise opportunity is presented to you, preliminary figures pertinent to the business are shared and any questions you have about the franchise are answered.
Following this, further discussions between the potential franchisee and Caremark take place.
At this stage a draft business plan is produced by the two parties, bank finance (if this is required) is discussed, the trading territory in which you will operate is agreed and a deposit to secure it is paid.
A date for initial training is then finalised, which is followed by the signing of the franchise agreement and the payment of the balance of the franchise fee.
Before you open for business as a Caremark franchisee, Care Quality Commission or other registrations need to be gained and training completed.
Before you make any commitment to a franchisor or invest any money, it is important that you carry out full and thorough research into the business, the sector in which it operates and its track record as a franchisor in the UK.
In addition, would be franchisees are advised to ask a suitably qualified accountant to review the financial information provided by a franchisor about its business and pay for a lawyer familiar with franchising and the franchise business model to scrutinise the franchise agreement - which is a legally binding document - before it is signed.
