We’re highlighting our franchisees’ shopping services as local lockdown volunteering schemes wind down.
Sally Graham, founder of Avant Homecare, which is seeking more franchisees to add to its current total of six, says: “Many people who have been shielding or isolating now have a problem: how do they go shopping without taking the risk of going to the shops? Our Avant Homecare franchisees are now helping them solve this.”
Avant Homecare franchisees provide far more than health and social care services such as help with getting up and dressing, ensuring medications are taken, making snacks, companionship and generally enabling customers to stay safe and secure in the comfort of their own homes.
“Our franchisees’ teams of professional care workers also offer a wide range of help including shopping, picking up items from pharmacies, dog walking, and preparing food, in some cases full meals. The breadth of the offering means the franchisee’s services are attractive to a wider range of clients, which makes for a more stable and rewarding business,” says Sally.
Avant head office is publicising its shopping services in local media and online marketing, as part of the local and national marketing it undertakes for the benefit of franchisees.
Marketing support is just one of the items included in the Avant Homecare franchise package. Franchisees also get:
Training, support, coaching and mentoring to set up, launch, grow and manage your business
Support to recruit and train a passionate, quality-focused team
All the policies and procedures needed to run and deliver a compliant and exceptional home care service, with ongoing updates and advice on any legislative changes
You need no previous care sector experience to become an Avant Homecare franchisee, but you will need strong interpersonal skills and an empathy with the support that vulnerable people need to stay safe and secure with a quality home care service.
Sally says: “You bring your passion for providing exceptional care, the ability to communicate confidently with customers and their families, and to inspire your team.
“We provide you with the practical benefits of years of successful experience in the care sector, to help you build a multi-territory, multimillion-pound business that really makes a difference.”
The investment required to start an Avant Homecare franchise is £25,500 + VAT plus working capital, and Avant will help you prepare your business plan and with any funding applications.
