What Do New Franchisees Get After Their Initial Investment?
Entrepreneurs are always searching for recession-resistant franchise opportunities. Since the pandemic hit, the senior care industry has consistently been one of the most attractive industries to invest in. After all, home care franchise owners like Always Best Care franchisees provide essential services for their clients that will always be needed regardless of economic conditions. No matter what life throws at us, one thing is for certain – people still need care.
While Always Best Care provides services for people from all walks of life, our primary clientele consists of senior citizens. Over the next 20 years, Canada’s senior’s population — those age 65 and older — is expected to grow by 68%. Many Baby Boomers want to maintain their lifestyles, they just need a little help to do so. That’s where an Always Best Care franchise comes in.
It’s certainly an attractive proposition – earn a great living, provide for your family, and make a real, positive impact in your community. But one question many potential home care franchise owners are asking is, “How much does it cost to get started with Always Best Care, and what do I get?”
