Becoming a franchisee is a big decision and a big investment that takes a lot of thoughts and commitment from you and a franchisor. Much like you, we at Caring don't make these decisions without a lot of careful consideration. We have constructed an in-depth process designed to give you all of the information you need to make your decision about buying a home care franchise. These steps to starting a small business with us also allow us to assess the values, competencies, and skill sets you possess. After 30 years in business, we know what makes a happy and fulfilled Caring Senior Service franchisee.

 

10 Steps to Caring Ownership

  •   Step 1   A Caring team member will reach out and schedule a phone call. We will send you additional information on our home care franchise opportunity. During our first phone appointment, we will learn what you are looking for in a successful home care franchise business. We will talk over your timing, market of interest, working capital, background, and interest in helping seniors, families, and communities. If we mutually determine Caring could be a good fit for you, we will schedule another call to explore the opportunity further and let you know the steps to starting a small business as a Caring Senior Service franchisee.
  •   Step 2   On our next phone call, we will continue our first discussion. We will explain the franchise award process and walk through the franchise application together. We will also talk more about the unique Caring franchise approach, our seasoned experience, and the strengths of our system. We will discuss why we are in the business of home care and how we strive to become the new service leader. Then, we will schedule a follow-up call.
  •   Step 3   We will review your franchise application and all relevant data. We will confirm the market area zip codes for your preferred territory and share demographic mapping reports with you before you buy a home care franchise with us. We will review local market factors you have observed and continue talking about these through the entire exploration process. At the end of this step, we will send you our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) to review.
  •   Step 4   We will review all of your FDD questions and, if needed, set aside a time while at Meet the Team Day to review with you. When you're ready, we will arrange for you to come to San Antonio for an upcoming Meet the Team Day to learn more about us.
  •   Step 5   You will spend time meeting the Caring team, learning more about the home care industry, and understanding the strengths Caring offers before committing to buying a home care franchise. We will review and reconfirm our franchise award process dates. You will meet one-on-one with us at the close of Meet the Team Day to answer any questions are fully addressed. You will receive a graphic of your desired territory demographics and mapping, reinforcing our discussions.
  •   Step 6   Shortly after Meet the Team Day, our Executive Team will discuss your request to join Caring. Then, we will follow up with you to answer any remaining questions you may have about buying a home care franchise with us. We will confirm your territory and timing as earlier agreed upon. We will also confirm that your working capital sources and funding levels are in place to match your timing. We will mutually determine that we are a good fit for each other.
  •   Step 7   We will coordinate with you on franchise agreement dates. You will receive your franchise agreement for final review and electronic signing with a Caring representative present by phone. You will return the signed agreement along with the initial franchise fee. We will share training dates and a projected timeline for the next steps for starting a small business with Caring Senior Service.
  •   Step 8   Once we receive your signed franchise agreement, showing that you have bought a home care franchise with us, you will receive a welcome call from our CEO. We will send our Pre-Training Checklist, and a member of our Support Team will call you to review it and confirm timing for training completion. During follow-up calls, a member of Training or Support will review advanced prep work required for training and continually check in, providing training updates to ensure you’re ready for New Owner Training. You will also begin hiring your first staff members.
  •   Step 9   You and your team will complete virtual and in-person training courses during New Owner Training. This will be a great opportunity to network and learn with other new owners and managers and establish friendships and mentors to help you grow your Caring business. When you start a small business with us, you will receive regular coaching calls following training to help you get ready to launch your business.
  •   Step 10   At the end of your path to buying your own home care franchise and becoming an owner, you will schedule your grand opening. We will ensure a member of the Caring team is onsite within the first week to 10 days of opening. We will also ensure a follow-up process is in place for field support communications and set weekly calls with you for your first 4 months of operation (at minimum).
