SureCare announces plans to double franchise numbers by 2016
Opportunities for entrepreneurs with a “can-do attitude” to join the care franchise
Care provider SureCare is calling on franchisees to join its team with a goal to expand its franchise network to 50 sites within the next two years.
Established in 1994 and owned by social charity Housing 21, SureCare offers domiciliary care for the elderly alongside childcare, respite care and home services, and has 27 franchises and three branches across the UK.
After recently launching two new websites and having undergone a rebrand, the care franchise is looking to “dramatically” increase its UK presence and is seeking to attract entrepreneurs with a “can-do attitude”.
Franchise packages are available for £28,000 plus working capital and the care specialists claim to offer franchisees a fast return on initial investment with franchise costs usually repaid within nine months.
SureCare managing director, Gary Farrer (pictured), discussed the company’s franchise opportunities:
“We have now created a franchise business which is able to offer a community of care services for life’s journey. This means our franchisees can provide services for the very young through to those in later life.
“We have an ambitious growth plan and are keen to hear from people interested in taking on a SureCare franchise.”
Existing SureCare franchisees Caron Oldreive and Cheryl Hawksworth, continued:
Oldreive: “We chose [to run a SureCare] franchise because it gave support on time-consuming issues such as policy and procedure and legislation, so it left us free to provide care.”
Hawksworth added: “Expect to work hard – at first we did 14-hour days. Even with help from the franchisor you must build the business yourself.”
