There are three reasons why you should invest in Visiting Angels, one of the fastest growing brands in home care
Visiting Angels is already one of the world’s largest home care brands, with over 600 franchisees in five countries. The brand is experiencing unprecedented growth in the UK, opening four new offices in the London area alone in the past six months.
UK managing director Dan Archer brought Visiting Angels to the UK in 2017. He says he could see a gap in the market for a business that does things differently. Dan believes there are three reasons to consider a Visiting Angels home care franchise:
The company’s carer centric approach
Visiting Angels has an innovative approach to running a care business in the UK. Its mission statement is to become the UK care sector’s employer of choice by 2022.
“Our business makes the carers the most important people in the company,” Dan says. “We pay better and we earn and reward loyalty. It has meant we have been able to grow our workforce when others in the sector are struggling.
“Our recruitment and retention techniques have been proven over 20 years in the US and we are now bringing a carer centric approach to the UK for the first time.”
Its attractive employment terms
The pre and post-Brexit market will create staffing challenges for other care companies.
With a heavy reliance on European workers who have stopped coming to the UK, other home care providers are struggling. This is, in turn, helping Visiting Angels to grow.
“Our employment proposition is designed for a competitive employment market,” Dan says. “We are taking staff from our competition and at the same time are not reliant on European workers. We have grown our business because we have the staff to say yes to new clients when our competitors cannot.”
Visiting angels is both established and fast growing
Launching in the USA 20 years ago and in the UK in 2017, the opportunity is both established and fast growing.
“Our franchisees are joining a fast growing business with the opportunity to choose the perfect territory, the chance to influence the direction of the UK business and to spearhead our mission to change care,” Dan says. “At the same time, they are joining over 600 franchisees sharing best practice from across the globe.”
Gareth Redmayne launched his Visiting Angels franchise in September in Hertfordshire and already has a healthy client demand.
“I was impressed with the vision Visiting Angels had for the UK,” he says. “The concept of being carer centric aligned with my values and I knew it was something I had to be part of.
“The size of territory I was able to work within was much bigger than other care brands - meaning I could make an impact on more people.”
Visiting Angels is seeking franchisees across the UK. No experience is needed, as full training is provided.
The franchise is a substantial premises-based management business, with the potential for a turnover in excess of £1 million after three years.
