What is Included in 1Heart’s Franchise Cost?
When establishing your franchise cost list, it’s important to consider the benefits each franchisee receives by joining the 1Heart family. These benefits include:
A Proven Business Model
One of the most significant advantages of franchising through 1Heart is that you are investing in a proven business model for senior caregiving. In addition, our established system reduces the risks compared to starting your own elder care business from scratch.
1Heart is an established brand that continues growing in recognition throughout the United States. This brand recognition makes marketing and advertising much easier, as you can leverage our excellent reputation.
Training and Support
Training and support are included in your franchise startup costs and are designed to ensure you have all the necessary skills and knowledge to operate a senior home care business successfully. Furthermore, franchisees receive ongoing support from 1Heart, such as access to resources, advice, and assistance with any issues that may arise.
As part of a larger network of senior homecare businesses, all 1Heart franchisees benefit from group purchasing power. This network means lower costs for inventory and supplies as we negotiate better deals with suppliers due to economies of scale.
Banks and other financial institutions may be more likely to approve loans for franchise costs compared to independent startups or personal loans. This preference is because franchises are often considered less risky, given their proven business models and established brand names.
