We are delighted to announce that AHS Franchise Partners Ltd, the franchise arm of Avant Healthcare Services, has awarded its first franchise, Avant Healthcare Services (Worcestershire).
Avant Healthcare Services (Worcestershire) will provide quality social care, support and companionship services to customers across Worcestershire, who require care and support in their homes, to enable them to live independent lives, with dignity, for as long as possible.
The new Worcestershire franchisee is Melinda Bailey who previously worked in sales for BT and has a long and successful background in business, most notably marked by being a three-time recipient of the coveted ‘Master’s Award’ for sales, the highest recognition handed out by the Telecoms giant. Her new business has recently been successfully reviewed by the CQC (Care Quality Commission), which confirms that it is fit and suitably staffed to deliver the services offered.
‘I am excited to be starting up my Avant Healthcare Services business; I see it as the perfect opportunity for me to combine my passion for commercial achievement with providing excellent social care, something I feel very strongly about. I am determined that Avant Healthcare Services (Worcestershire) will have a reputation as the best domiciliary care provider in Worcestershire.’
Sally Graham, founder of Avant Healthcare Services, was previously a franchisee herself and has over 17 years of experience in the healthcare industry having run a multiple territory national health care franchise with her father, before selling it back to the franchisor in 2010. At the point of sale their franchise was turning over in excess of £12m a year, across nine territories.
When Sally’s father was diagnosed with dementia, her own role as carer went from theory to practice, learning first-hand the stress of looking after an elderly, sick relative, whilst also running a business and raising a young family; it taught her invaluable lessons that she has been able to bring to Avant Healthcare Services and now, to her franchisees.
On awarding her first franchise Sally said,
‘Everyone at AHS Franchise Partners and Avant Healthcare Services is delighted to award our first franchise and welcome Melinda to the Avant family. She already has a great team in place in Worcester and with the support of my highly experienced head office team, who have proven track records in the industry, we will help her and all future franchisees, to grow ethical, profitable, sustainable care and support businesses, across the United Kingdom. We look forward to hearing from more hard working, motivated people like Melinda, with a desire to grow large successful businesses and, ultimately, to help them achieve their dreams.’
