Is a care franchise for you?
Leading care company SureCare is preparing to launch a number of new franchises around the country and are talking to a number of other potential franchisees.
The surge in interest coincides with the arrival of Josh Farrer – son of SureCare Managing Director Gary – as Franchise Sales Manager.
Josh has a strong background in sales and marketing and has decided to join the SureCare business as it prepares to ramp up franchise sales in England and Wales.
He becomes a key member of the management team which also includes Operations Director Tracy Newcombe, Business Development Managers Clare Roberts and Rachel Gallagher and Office Manager Carolyn Griffiths.
Gary Farrer said: “Buying a franchise is a big investment and it is important to know that you are going to receive the support you need every step of the way.
“We believe the team we have put in place is able to provide the expertise and support a care franchise needs to achieve its maximum potential.
“I was determined to return SureCare to its roots as a family business when I acquired the business from Housing & Care 21 in November 2014.”
SureCare gives its franchisees the opportunity to provide their clients with a comprehensive range of care and home services.
While the company started life as a traditional domiciliary care company, it has developed over the last two years into a much broader care and home services business.
SureCare franchisees can now offer clients personal care and support, holiday and respite care, Alzheimer’s care, childcare, mobile crèche and babysitting.
To ensure that people can maintain their independence for as long as possible, the company also now provides its clients with a complete range of home services including gardening, DIY, decorating, cleaning and cooking.
The services offered by SureCare franchises are a mix of regulated and unregulated, which combined aim to ensure that they are meeting the specific needs of people of all ages today.
Gary added: “SureCare franchisees come from all backgrounds. While many of them will have worked in the care sector, others will come from a variety of our sectors. All of our franchisees are passionate about wanting to provide the best possible care to our clients and building a successful, profitable business.”
SureCare franchises start at £32,000 plus working capital.
