With three new Caremark offices opening across south central England, the Caremark network continues to expand.
Last October, new franchisees Michael Folkes and Ahsan Sajjad launched their respective businesses in Gloucestershire and Hertfordshire, while Raspinder Singh is preparing to get started in Dartford and Gravesend, Kent.
Michael and Ahsan hit the ground running with clients waiting for their service to begin once the registration with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) had been completed. Both new franchisees are familiar with the Caremark brand.
Michael Folkes witnessed the valuable service delivered by his father Charles, owner of one of Caremark’s top performing franchises in the network. Michael commented:
"I am delighted to be launching Caremark (Cheltenham) and thrilled to be working in such a rewarding sector. I see many exciting years ahead and plenty of opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives."
Ahsan Sajjad is also well acquainted with the Caremark system, as he previously co-owned a competitor home care franchise. Eager to build his business in Dacorum and St Albans, Ahsan said:
"I love working in social care, working with passionate, caring, involved people and having the opportunity to make significant change for the better in peoples’ lives every day.
From the very first day I knew the reason I opened this business was to serve my community; our customers are at the heart of everything we do. I look forward to the next five years and to building the business with my new, but already amazing team!"
It takes certain skills and abilities to build a successful care franchise, but talent and passion for care are equally important. With local demand for professional home care services, Caremark’s three new franchisees have every chance to realise their dreams while contributing to their local communities.
