The award is for franchisors who have been franchising for five years or less, with judges looking for a business that demonstrates a passion for and commitment to ethical franchising.
The finals for this and other award categories will be decided at Express Newspapers in London on May 21 and 22, after a series of presentations and questioning by the three businesses in each category.
Right at Home, which began franchising in the UK in 2011, is an Affiliate bfa member with 18 offices operational and a further seven coming through the start-up stage.
Providing quality care for older people and adults with physical and mild learning disabilities, in the comfort of their own home, it seeks owners wanting a business with rewards above and beyond profitability.
Judges in the Emerging Franchisor of the Year Award will be looking for solid preparation prior to the launch of the franchise; and demonstrable network growth in terms of franchisees and their revenues.
They will want evidence of a strong infrastructure and support for the network, ensuring that franchisees have the best possible environment in which to succeed and reach their full potential.
Right at Home prides itself on then supporting its owners through every step of their start-up and crucial first six to twelve months, using our experience and innovation to help them hit the ground running and helping them to minimise overheads until their business begins to turn over a profit.
We then maintain that relationship of top level support and feedback, focusing on business development and growth throughout the term of the franchise.
Right at Home’s measured growth strategy has allowed it to offer unparalleled support to new franchisees. The success of this strategy can be measured in the overall average growth for an office’s second year of business, which is more than 400 per cent.
Right at Home has large territories available across the UK and is keen to find owners who share their passion for delivering a quality service, and would love the rewards of enabling vulnerable people to live at home and enjoy their independence.
This is a management franchise so sector experience is not necessary, as alongside our outstanding training, Right at Home helps you recruit a locally-experienced, highly trained registered manager to oversee the operational side of the business.
Our ideal owner will enjoy networking and getting involved in their local community, building up relationships with key repeat referral sources and engaging in warm sales to other business and consumers. They will enjoy building up a team of well-trained caregivers and support staff, who are highly valued and supported with their career development.
