What Franchise Magazine looks at franchise success. The last year has convinced many people to start their own business rather than relying on the dubious stability of employment.
People have got used to working independently and they like it! The risk of going it alone – of starting a business on your own – has always been high. The pandemic has decimated small businesses. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) found 15% of UK business owners had ‘little or no confidence their businesses would survive the next three months,’ thanks to the pandemic.
Franchising reduces the risk of business ownership. Franchise success is down to support and there are record numbers of franchise enquiries because investors realise support is everything, especially in a crisis.
What franchise magazine analysed the franchise sectors, pointing out which sectors are hottest currently. ONS notes “Services have been the main contributor to the recovery of gross domestic product in recent months”
Dugan Aylen from The Franchising centre says, “because of the pivotal role the care sector has played during the pandemic, mixed with the UK’s growing population (over 65’s will increase by 49% 2017 – 2040. One third of over 65’s live alone and one in ten is ageing without children) franchises in Senior Care will continue to be a great investment.
Scott Greenberg author of The wealthy franchisee, identifies how franchisees succeed.
The magazine asked us why we are looking for ordinary people with extraordinary hearts to follow our successful franchise and about our returns for business owners.
We talked about our franchised elderly care in Kent; our homecare franchise business Buckinghamshire; our care services franchise in Norfolk and the immense satisfaction on offer. including the pride of our award win and how, for our brand, finding outstanding carers is a breeze thanks to our ethical franchise processes.
