Qualities of successful franchisees

The Avant model focuses on sustainable growth, based on great services delivered by great people. We believe that quality service and exceptional delivery counts for everything, and unlocks opportunities in a growth market with longevity. It's this approach which has given Sally her success, and which she and her team invite you to replicate.

A number of key traits are required to make a successful Avant franchise. First and foremost is care, in every sense of the word.

You'll need a rare passion to help vulnerable and older people in your community to enjoy the best quality of life possible. This business is all about people, helping those in need live comfortably at home while retaining their dignity, independence and zest for life, so you'll need empathy and a caring nature - for your employees, your customers and their families.

You do not need experience in the care sector, because as a franchisee you won't be responsible for providing care yourself - you'll employ a highly skilled, qualified and experienced registered care manager and a team of superb care workers to do that. Instead, your focus will be on business development and managing your team, so you'll need the drive and ambition to lead from the front.

As you'd expect in such an important community business, we have a robust selection process prior to awarding a territory to a franchisee. We are determined to be the best rather than racing to simply be the biggest, thus ensuring we grow through quality, not quantity.

Franchise success happens when franchisee and franchisor values are aligned. Our company values are:

Aspirational = to give outstanding quality of care to every single person
Virtue = to have moral excellence
Accountability = to be responsible and learn from our mistakes
Nurturing = to always be caring and compassionate
Trustworthy = to be totally open and honest

If you share these values, then there's every chance we can forge a successful, meaningful and profitable partnership together.
