Founded in 2007 by Alexander Muller in Oberhausen, Germany. Facilitas is one of the leading businesses in smoking cessation using Soft Laser Therapy. Due to the effectiveness of the treatment, growth has been beyond expectation.

The franchise network now includes 50 locations in 20 countries with more than 50 thousand successfully completed treatments. Due to the innovative nature of marrying acupuncture with laser treatments, Facilitas has attracted media attention in many countries aiding growth and brand awareness exponentially.  The treatment is also back up by a double-blind study carried out at Middlesex University in 2008 by Kerr and Lowe which showed a 70% success rate using soft laser acupuncture to modify tobacco withdrawal

Facilitas promises to make you a non-smoker after one 90 minute visit. The session is broken down into three parts. Firstly a 30 minute professional consultation detailing the procedure and after-effects of the non-invasive treatment and an individual briefing on the roots of addiction. Next the 45-minute painless laser treatment session which stimulates acupuncture points in the ears – A free follow-up appointment is offered within the first 3 months should the treatment not work. Finally, a short 15 minute presentation giving tips on detoxifying, stress management and nutrition.

Care Franchises

Residential Care Homes

According to the UK governments care homes study 30th November 2017 the care homes sector is worth around £15.9 billion a year, with around 410,000 residents. They calculate that there are 5,500 different care service providers in the UK operating 11,300 care homes for the elderly. Approx 95% of their beds are provided by the independent sector (both for-profit & charities ). Government local authorities generally commission care services from independent care providers. On average the cost for a self-funder in 2016 was £846 per week (nearly £44,000 per year), while Local authorities paid around £621 per week.

Domestic Care

UKHCA estimate that total local authority expenditure on domiciliary care services in the UK in 2014/15 was £3.9 billion. As personalisation or self-directed support policy progresses nationally,the uptake of direct payments has increased. UKHCA estimate that totallocal authority expenditure on direct payments in the UK in 2014/15 was £1.5 billion. There has been a trend in England over recent years for NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) to purchase social care and health services from the independent and voluntary sector. In 2014/15 total CCG expenditure on non-NHS care services was £2.3 billion. At this time we do not have more detailed expenditure analysis available or domiciliary care specific expenditure data. Data on expenditure by people who self-fund their care is sparse. UKHCA estimate that expenditure on domiciliary care by self-funders in 2014/15 was £713 million.

With this very large and apparently growing sector there are many different opportunities to start a business with a domestic & care home franchise, providing care in peoples homes via a home care franchise or domiciliary care franchise or setting up a residential care home franchise business.
