The company is seeking ambitious individuals who want to run their own business in a personally rewarding sector. Right at Home specialises in providing high quality care and companionship to seniors and adults in the comfort of their own home.
UK managing director of Right at Home is Ken Deary who was previously one of McDonald’s top UK franchisees and a former BFA franchisee of the year. He said: “We currently have franchise opportunities in all the key cities of Scotland and Northern Ireland. The home care market is growing exponentially as the population becomes older and people need high quality standards of care delivered in their own homes. This is a management franchise so the franchise owner would recruit a locally-experienced, well-qualified registered manager who would recruit and train the home care assistants.”
Right at Home currently has twenty local offices in the UK, including Cardiff, which is run by Joe Guishard. Joe, a former police officer, knew he wanted to work for himself in a business that directly helped people in his local community. Joe said: “Meeting Ken Deary and realising his expertise in this field was what clinched it for me. The home care sector was something I felt very passionate about, with a strong desire to deliver quality services. Right at Home matched my aims and aspirations and seemed a highly ethical company, which is why I wanted to become part of it.”
He added: “The franchisee training we received exceeded my expectations – it really was first class and an invaluable experience. There was lots of information you just wouldn’t get if you were starting on your own. I feel the training allowed me to hit the ground running.”
The total investment required for the Right at Home franchise (including initial franchise fee and working capital) is up to £100,000. The franchise agreement is for a ten year renewable term.
