In just four years since its launch Bluebird Care, which provides a care at home service, is set to open its 100th office. The new location is due to open soon after the company exhibits at the National Franchise Exhibition at the NEC, Birmingham on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd October.
Simon Dalziel, Franchise Director of Bluebird Care, said: “As a successful business we are always looking to bring in more high quality franchise owners, who can see the opportunity the care sector offers and can also see why Bluebird Care is so far ahead of many other companies.”
Success is widespread in the franchise network with three franchise owners already reporting annual turnovers in excess of £1 million.
Paul Tarsey, Managing Director of Bluebird Care, said: “We have an ethos of business partnership with our franchise owners as we recognise we are only as good as our franchise owners – their success is our success.”
Bluebird Care’s very first franchise owner Sue Milakovic joined the network in October 2006, having signed her franchise agreement at the NEC Franchise Exhibition. She said: “It seems a long time ago but I have absolutely no regrets. It was a risk being the first franchise owner but a calculated one and one that has proved to be well worth taking.”
Milakovic’s business has grown steadily and she opened a second office within her Mid Staffordshire territory earlier this year. She added: “I knew that I was buying into huge experience in this sector both in terms of care provision and franchising when I decided to join Bluebird Care and I have used that experience to grow a thriving business running from two offices.”
Bluebird Care is a full member of the British Franchise Association and was a Franchise of the Year award finalist earlier in the year.
Dalziel said: “Our credentials are there for people to see. We have a very successful franchise system based upon years of experience and a successful profitable network of franchise owners who are operating in one of the recognised growth sectors of the economy.”
Bluebird Care will exhibit on Stand H210 at the National Franchise Exhibition at the NEC.
