Everycare UK is an established, highly successful Domiciliary Home Care and Nursing Franchise that provides the highest quality of health and social care through tailor made services for their clients.
Due to the remarkable success of the pilot Everycare business in 1993, with a first-year turnover of over half a million GBP, the franchise network launched in 1994 with several offices having annual turnovers in excess of £2million.
The domiciliary care and Nursing services markets are flourishing, and in the UK are estimated to be in excess of £18 billion annually.
These markets have also remained generally unaffected during economic swings since government policy encourages people to remain at home as long as possible.
Everycare provides health and social care staff to private and Local Authority service users in the privacy of their own homes. They offer a 24-hour live-in care service and offer qualified Nursing staff to public and private sector organisations.
As a franchisee, you will have a management and administrative role. Your responsibilities include recruitment of staff, organising the workforce, dealing with customers, marketing the business and performing HR functions. Several franchisees are generating profits in excess of £300,000 per annum.
You do not require any specific experience or qualifications although a background in care or business could be useful.
The domiciliary and live-in care side of the business requires the franchisee to recruit a team of health and social care assistants that can provide support services to clients so they have a better quality of life in their own home.
The Nursing agency service allows franchisees to supply Nurses (either Qualified or un-qualified) to hospitals, care homes, industry, and private service users and contractors.
As with every industry there are good and bad times. In the case of the care market this is not driven by a lack of work as there is always a demand for their service, however, recruitment of staff has traditionally been their biggest challenge.
This is why Everycare have only chosen to actively franchise when they believe the market will give their new franchisees the very best chance of success. In these difficult times, as many businesses struggle to survive and are laying off their staff, Everycare recognise that this is one of those times. As a result, they are now actively looking for people who like them can see when the time is right!
Along with a comprehensive franchise start up pack the Everycare team ensures that franchisees get the support they need to establish their own business. The Head Office support team will be instrumental in helping make sure your business is a success. With guidance on marketing, setting up initial contracts, as well as ongoing staff training and Internet and telephone support during office hours, you will never feel alone!
Uniquely, you will also receive dedicated support from an experienced Premier franchisee. They will be available, along with head office, to help with the recruitment of your key personnel and of your initial care and Nursing staff to ensure that your business gets off to a fast start.
The franchise package costs £24,950 + VAT. The total investment required will generally be around £100,000 depending on personal drawing requirements, which includes the franchise fee, all start-up costs (including set-up, equipping an office, initial marketing etc.) and necessary cash flow. Funding can be available subject to status from banks if required.
With little business experience the support of an experienced franchisee (premier franchisee) through start up and over those first 12 months was invaluable.
The franchisees are a group of like minded people who you can contact anytime and tap into their wealth of knowledge.
I chose Everycare because they were a care company who franchise rather than a franchising company who happened to deal in care.
Low on going fees which reduce as turnover increases
Territory areas double the size of competitors allowing for substantial growth
Unique double support programme from head office and 1 to 1 mentoring from a premier franchisee
