Seven could be your lucky number if you are looking for a successful healthcare services franchise: it’s now seven years since Sally Graham used her personal experience as a successful care franchisee to start Avant Healthcare Services.
Sally started her first care services franchise in 1996 and soon built up a successful business with nine territories and a turnover of £12m. “I knew that my expertise as a franchisee would be valuable in helping other caring, business-minded people to start their own care services businesses, so I sold my franchises to one of the UK’s top five homecare services companies and in 2012 founded Avant Healthcare Services,” she says.
“Avant franchisees get the benefit of my seven years’ experience running the company, plus my earlier experience as a successful franchisee – a combination that most care services franchises cannot offer.
“At Avant we understand the challenges that franchisees in this sector face – and how to overcome them to grow a thriving business that makes a genuine difference to your community.”
Avant provides you with a franchise package that covers branding, systems and operational and legislative guidance, leaving you free to focus on developing and managing your business – providing quality homecare for the elderly and vulnerable.
The package includes initial training and an operations manual to help you set up, launch, grow and manage your business, plus ongoing support, coaching and mentoring from an experienced senior management team, including Sally Graham herself.
You also benefit from being part of a team of franchisees, with whom you can share experiences at franchisee forums and an annual conference.
“We also help you recruit and train your staff team – one of the biggest challenges in the care sector – and ensure you are kept up to date with policies, procedures and care sector legislation,” says Sally.
Avant also supplies guidance on dealing with mandatory inspections and people from its quality department attend inspections to give franchisees support.
Sally says: “Care franchising requires a true partnership between franchisee and franchisor. Our seven years of experience, plus my experience as a successful franchisee, means the Avant team knows how to help you succeed, because between us we’ve spent decades growing businesses just like yours.”
