6 Tools to Help You Hit the Ground Running

Posted by Jason Vyhlidal , 8/16/2018 6:00 PM

When evaluating franchise opportunities, it often feels reassuring to compare facts, figures, and hard numbers. But what about systems and support that can bring value to a franchise business and help set you up for success? Undoubtedly, both are important. The Home Instead Senior Care® network understands this, and offers both tangible and intangible benefits to help you hit the ground running and start growing your business. 

 

We'll walk you through some of the top benefits we hear are most valuable to Home Instead franchise owners as they launch and grow their business.

 

1.      Training, training, and more training

Many Home Instead Senior Care franchise owners are surprised by the amount of training and support they receive once they are part of the Home Instead network. In addition to operational guidance, owners are invited to attend a week-long training class at our global headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska. Our training provides research-based programs and systems for use in building your new business. Access to industry training resources are not only available to you, but to your key staff and CAREGiversSM. You and your team can stay current on specialized areas, such as Alzheimer's and dementia, through web-based training and access to industry experts. Our annual conference is also an opportunity for owners to share best practices, new technology and marketing initiatives, and collaborate with other franchise owners.

 

2.      24/7 IT Support

Let's face it, if you wanted to do IT work, chances are you might be in a different field. We offer 24/7 business and technical support so you can focus on managing and growing your business. "Every little computer issue that comes up could ruin your day if you try to figure it out yourself. But IT is just a phone call away and they usually can help with your issue within 15 minutes," explained Megan Bredeson, Franchise Owner. Franchise owners are offered peace of mind knowing they have support to troubleshoot anything from the computers to the phone system. 

 

3.      Access to an Extensive Network of Experts

When you join the Home Instead Senior Care network, you also join 1,000+ new and existing owners that have been in your shoes and often willing to share their experiences. Additionally, our business performance team can provide on-site business coaching, strategic planning assistance, and benchmarking tools to help measure your success and growth. Over one-hundred and fifty (150) dedicated team members at the Home Office in Omaha also help support the mission of Home Instead Senior Care and franchise owners in the network.

 

4.      Ready-to-Go Marketing Tools

Award-winning public education campaigns, customizable marketing materials, and even a website for your local franchise is offered to new franchise owners. Franchise owners also benefit from a national marketing fund and professional media management that helps build brand awareness, public relations, and generate business and CAREGiver leads. Owners may also tap into comprehensive email and social media marketing programs that are localized for maximum impact and engagement with consumers.

 

5.      A Trusted Name

With national awards in marketing, customer satisfaction, and franchisee satisfaction, Home Instead Senior Care is a respected and recognized name in the industry. As a new franchise owner, having an established brand name that your community likely already knows and trusts may help you get off on the right foot.

 

6.      A Mission that Matters

Everything we do at Home Instead Senior Care is driven by our universal mission: "To enhance the lives of aging adults and their families. We believe in serving, inspiring change, and making the world a better place for seniors and their families." In addition, the Home Instead Senior Care Foundation offers community service projects and free resources for family caregivers are just some of the ways we support our mission. Giving back is something franchisees can take pride in, too. "I feel good about the work that we do as an organization. I think we truly make a difference in the lives of our clients and their families," said franchise owner Noel Morris.
