RIGHT at Home UK is celebrating the news that its UK office group will soon hit double figures. It’s eighth office, Right at Home (Guildford and Farnham) has just opened and is already trading, much to the pride of owner Alastair Shanks and Registered Manager Hazel Butcher. And two more upcoming local owner/operators have now completed their two-week Franchisee Training Programme at the company headquarters in Preston, Lancashire, and are working towards the process of certification from the Care Quality Commission.
Their offices, in the key areas of Bournemouth and Cardiff, are due to open later this summer. Right at Home has more than 250 offices world-wide, so its brand is established and the business model is well proven. UK master franchisor, Ken Deary, says his measured UK expansion strategy will allow the company to give unparalled levels of support as franchisees start up their businesses, providing high quality in-home care services. This approach has met with high acclaim from our new Franchisees whose offices will open later this year.
One reported: “I have found Ken and all of the team very professional, friendly and informative. I have been impressed by the franchise package I have received to date and even more so by the training course which Right at Home have put together. “I would describe the franchise fee as a bargain – without the experience and input that Right at Home have provided the set up cost would have been considerably higher. They have a great team, with passion and the drive to always improve, which was a key factor to why I chose them. “Right at Home as a franchisor has been nothing but supportive during my process, and had a big role to play in me securing my finances. I personally believe that I would have not been able to open a care service business if it wasn’t for the support from everyone there, especially Ken Deary, whose advice has been invaluable.”
