Exploring the Advantages of a Franchise Business

Benefits of a Franchise Business

When considering whether to start a business on their own or invest in a franchise, many aspiring entrepreneurs find themselves at a crossroads. While both methods have their advantages, today we’ll look at the compelling benefits that franchise businesses bring to the table.

Why Choose a Franchise Business?

Proven Business Models: One of the most major benefits of choosing a franchise is access to a proven business strategy. Franchisors have previously honed their operations, marketing tactics, and customer service practices, lowering the risks of beginning a new business from scratch.

Established Brand Recognition: Creating brand recognition from start can be a difficult task. Franchise businesses benefit from their parent company’s established brand recognition, which can lead to a loyal customer base from the start.

Comprehensive Training & Support : The franchisor provides comprehensive training and continuing assistance to franchisees, covering everything from initial setup to day-to-day operations. This support network can be helpful, especially for those who enter industries with which they are unfamiliar.

Economies of scale: Franchise businesses frequently use the combined purchasing power of the entire franchise network to negotiate better deals with suppliers, resulting in cheaper costs for individual franchisees.

Marketing and Advertising Assistance: Franchisees profit from the franchisor’s national and, in some cases, global marketing initiatives. This combined advertising effort not only saves individual franchisees time and money, but it also ensures that the brand message is consistent across all locations.

QnA with Nicky Sealey – Visiting Angels North Shropshire

2023-08-15T10:01:44+01:00

What did you do before you were a franchisee with Visiting Angels?

I was a registered manager for another Care provider in Essex.

Why franchising and why Visiting Angels?

I worked for a franchise provider and thought that there was still more work to be done and that things could still be done better. I found VA after Googling, spoke with Dan via email and WhatsApp and met him online. We then discussed it as a couple and planned to meet with Dan at National Office. We had a couple of meetings and scooted around at other franchises and then decided that the ethos to be carer centric matched our vision of what we wanted to achieve.

What prompted this decision?

Dan was very approachable and friendly – we liked the values of nimble, freedom, family, and relationships and this fitted with what we wanted to achieve.

How did you find out about the opportunity?

Online, by googling and searching. We looked at other franchises too but the mission to be employer of choice stood out and the values were exactly what we were looking for.

Why were you drawn to a care and health-related industry?

It’s what I have worked in for the last 15 years, the social care sector needs change and I feel that we really can make a difference with our carer centric approach.

What job satisfaction does it provide?

No day is the same! It’s fast paced, there are tears of sadness and joy, a satisfaction I have not known in any other sector. I have been a London based PA and I wouldn’t change this for the world!

How was the beginning? And the training and support, both initially and ongoing?

Training was completed at National Office; it was thorough and there was a lot to learn even though I already had so much knowledge. We have amazing support from Tray, the Area Manager. She visits us regularly and calls us to see how we are and whether we need anything. She’s amazing, everyone needs a Tray!

How is business so far?

We are in our 7 months of trading, just hitting 300 hours with 18 carers and 100% retention so we are getting good at being carer centric! We have another 4 on training this week and 2 that are sitting in the wings waiting for DBS.

What are your plans for the future of the business?

To grow, to keep doing what we are doing and to keep being carer centric. We will be the employer of choice locally and if the other franchises are on board too, we will be the employer of choice for the UK without a doubt!

Describe a typical day –

From when I first hit the office, sometimes I am an early bird and in by 7.30am sometimes I cheekily grab a coffee on the way and arrive a bit later, I meet with the office team and we have a huddle and talk about plans for the day, any concerns. I have an input with carers and clients – I love visiting the clients and just having a cup of tea and taking them a treat. It’s just lovely to see everyone and hear the stories and gather the evidence of what the angels are achieving. My day finishes around 5 to 6, I sometimes work at home, that’s what’s great about having a secure office team, I do not always need to be there, they have got this, and I am very proud of the whole team!

How has your life changed since you launched your Visiting Angels franchise?

It just got busier – we moved to a rural part of Shropshire from Essex and are surrounded by beautiful views and a fantastic community – VA gave us the chance to do that, to move on to work for ourselves and create a better environment for everyone!

Would you recommend franchising to others? Any advice/tips for those considering a change of career?

Think about what you’re doing, think hard, plan for a busy time, it’s not all tea and cake, be prepared to fully invest and support your team, you will eat, live, breathe and sleep VA – but there’s nothing better or more rewarding!

Visiting Angels Nominated for Leadership and Culture award and as the Emerging Franchisor award at BFA HSBC British Franchise Awards

2022-11-15T17:11:16+00:00

BFA finalist image

Visiting Angels has been shortlisted in the Franchisor Leadership and Culture category as well as the Emerging Franchisor category of the bfa HSBC British Franchise Awards

Visiting Angels is one of America’s largest home care franchises. Founded 1998, the brand has over 700 franchisees operating in 5 countries. Visiting Angels’ mission is to become the UK care sector’s employer of choice by 2022. To achieve this, the brand has positioned itself in the UK as being ‘carer-centric’ – something which MD, Dan Archers, says is a first for not only a care franchise, but a care company .

Known as the ‘Oscars’ of the franchising industry and set to take place on 24 November in Birmingham, the bfa HSBC British Franchise Awards evening is the flagship event in the franchising calendar and finalists are definitely ones to watch.

​​This year saw a record number of entries submitted across all categories, leading to an overall increase versus 2021. Despite what continues to be challenging times for most independent businesses, the franchising sector has shown strength and resilience. As a result, many bfa members have reported strong financial performance and continue to build strong, healthy networks.

Visiting Angels will be battling it out against three other franchise brands to take home the coveted Leadership and Culture accolade and against two more franchisors for the Emerging Franchisor title.

The Leadership and Culture category represents passion and commitment to caring for the development, wellbeing and success of the brand’s employed people and their franchisee network.

Pip Wilkins, CEO of the British Franchising Association, congratulated category finalists:

“This category has been particularly sought after in the past few years. As with any with any business the real test on leadership and culture comes during the toughest times and I think its fair to say we have had a fair few of those in recent years. Huge congratulations to Visiting Angels and fellow finalists in a category that are really shining examples of what should be done to achieve change together and remain united in its goals and objectives.”

Gillian Morris, Head of Franchising, HSBC, said:

The annual awards are a celebration of the achievements of the franchise sector, as well as the high standards of the finalists, their innovation and resilience demonstrated over the past year. We look forward to celebrating success with Visiting Angels and their team.

Becoming a finalist in the Emerging Franchisor category is recognition of the strong foundations and leadership needed in the build and growth phase of any brand and business journey. Finalists have shown a real passion for their brand and their people.

To be announced as a finalist for this award is a huge achievement and a real testament to the brand’s hard work and determination. Each year, these awards let us show franchisors that we’ve noticed their efforts, we’ve recognised their positive intention and fantastic impact on their network and the industry and we are thankful for their commitment. A big congratulations to the whole Visiting Angels team. – Pip Wilkins
