When choosing a franchise, sometimes it can be difficult deciding what the best potential business opportunity is available to offer you and your community. One of the most popular and fastest growing franchise sectors is the senior care industry. There are many reasons why the senior care industry is on the rise, but for now, here are the top 5 reasons to choose a home care franchise with Senior Helpers:
1. Lower Investment Costs
The startup cost to open most fast food franchises is a minimum of $500,000, and the average total investment ranges anywhere from $1-$2 million. Home care franchises can offer a significantly lower investment range that won’t break your bank account. Senior Helpers has an initial investment range of $113,300 to $152,300. This includes three months of working capital following the opening of the business, new owner training, startup marketing costs, including signage and so much more! Franchise candidate requirements are only $200,000 in net worth and $50,000 in liquid capital.
2. Strong Income Potential
Homecare franchises can drive up a lot of volume due to large territories and give a resource advantage over competitors. At Senior Helpers, the average revenue for franchisees who are open for 5 or more years is over $1 million*. The Elderly Care Products and Services Market is a extremely profitable industry with a size of $832.8 billion in 2019. It is also growing at a compound annual growth rate of 3.9% during the forecast period from 2020-2025. This industry is consistently growing due to the population aging around the world.
The number of people aged 60 years or older is expected to double by 2050, which is projected to reach nearly 2.1 billion. This allows the home care industry to continue to expand and gives Senior Helpers the ability to be positioned for growth with over 430 available territories in the USA.
3. Support the Community and Loved Ones
Opening a home care franchise doesn’t just benefit you financially, it also lets you support the community around you. The home care industry allows individuals to stay in their homes affordably, comfortably, and safely. Home health care specialists can help individuals adapt to their homes and fit to their changing needs. Senior Helpers provides flexible and customizable service options that ensure quality and personalized care for each individual. We also only hire professional, compassionate, and service-oriented individuals to provide the highest level of care to clients and their families.
