Five Things That Make Home Care Franchises Such a Solid Investment

Published on January 09, 2017

There are several important reasons why Home Care franchises have enjoyed the success they have over the past few years. In this year’s annual Home Care Franchises Sector Report, we revealed an amazing 58% growth in Home Care franchises since 2010, examining some of the significant franchise opportunities that are available in the Home Care industry.

With many new franchisors and franchisees entering the scene, we found certain key aspects of the Home Care sector that make it such an attractive opportunity. Here are five benefits that set it apart from other franchises:

  1. The market for Home Care services is large and continues to grow. This growth provides franchisees with an opportunity for significant revenue growth and continuous financial success.
  2. The concept of a Home Care franchise is straightforward and simplistic. While providing in-home care isn‘t easy, the product offering itself isn’t that complicated. While some franchisors design their franchise system to be overly complex, in many cases, less is better.
  3. The royalty for Home Care franchisees is reasonable and franchisees aren’t saddled with additional fees and add-ons. Franchises in the Home Care sector have a lower average royalty rate than other franchises in its parent industry, Personal Services, and the Franchise Industry as a whole.
  4. Most Home Care franchisors provide software that enables the franchisees to operate their business more efficiently. Within the franchise industry, a number of franchisors fail to provide the software systems that Home Care franchisors provide.
  5. They grant strong territory protections to the franchisee for the term of their franchise agreement.

These are only a few of the benefits that help to make Home Care franchises some of the most attractive franchise opportunities for investors. The Home Care franchising sector is on a successful trajectory and it differs from other franchise concepts in several key areas. Franchisors in other business categories could take a lesson from Home Care franchising and apply these attributes to their own franchise operation.
