Debunked! Three Myths About Opening a Senior Care Franchise

Posted: 12/5/2019 08:00 AM by Interim Franchise

Senior health care franchise opportunities present a wonderful way to make a living and give back to your community at the same time. Unfortunately, many people who would like to become part of our industry don’t pursue that idea because of some very common myths associated with what it takes to own a home healthcare franchise. If you’re one of those folks, don’t be discouraged. Let’s take a look at three of those myths here, and let’s set the record straight.

You Need Experience

This is perhaps the most common myth surrounding our industry and our unique investment opportunity. Often times, people believe they can’t take advantage of senior care franchise opportunities unless they have a background in a healthcare field. But the truth is, while that might be helpful, it certainly isn’t necessary when you invest in an Interim HealthCare franchise. That’s because we make sure all our franchisees, regardless of their experiences and professional backgrounds, enjoy the benefit of our comprehensive training and support. We’ll make sure you’re up-to-speed on just about everything you need to know about running your franchise on a day-to-day basis, how to find and keep qualified staff, and how to market to your best customer, among other important aspects of doing business. Our expertise, guidance, and resources are available to you for as long as you’re part of our brand family, because we know our good name depends on it.

You Won’t Have Freedom

A very common misconception that surrounds the franchisor/franchisee relationship is that the former won’t allow the latter to run things on his or her own. Actually, nothing could be further from the truth. While all franchise brands do have certain guidelines and procedures that franchisees must follow (it’s what makes running your business easier) the fact is, franchisors don’t want to be involved in the day-to-day operations of a franchisee’s location. At Interim Health Care, we look for ideal candidates who are suited for a healthcare franchise investment and who have the disposition and capabilities to be their own boss. Furthermore, our business model is one that allows for individuality, as franchisees work to meet the unique needs of their community. Most importantly, letting our franchisees make important decisions on their own and run their businesses without interference is what contributes to the overall success of our brand.

It’s Too Risky

Starting any small business carries with it a certain amount of risk. But franchises can be less risky endeavors because of all the work that has already gone into them by the franchisor. Kinks have been worked out, best practices have been put in place, and the business model acts as a sort of roadmap for the franchisee to follow. Of course, no brand can guarantee its franchisees ultimate success. But when you partner with a name like Interim HealthCare, you’re capitalizing on our decades of franchise experience and our deep knowledge of the senior health care industry. Having access to our experience and our resources takes a lot of the work and worry out of starting your franchise, freeing you up to focus on what matters most — growing your business and providing top-notch care.
