Hello again! Let's keep learning about becoming a business owner in the fast-growing homecare industry.
How franchising works
Owning a franchise is a partnership, between potentially you and in this case, the Qualicare home office. This partnership means Qualicare develops a brand, marketing and growth strategy that you the franchisee, deliver in your own market. So, you can start your new business with a shortened ramp-up because much of the foundational work is done for you.
That being said, it is your business to start and operate. There is a lot of effort and time needed for you to learn about our processes and do the work in your market. Qualicare has people to help you at every step along the way so even though you're in business for yourself, you are definitely not by yourself. And our network of other franchisees is always ready to lend an ear and provide advice if you need it.
The Discovery Process
This relationship begins with getting to know one another. Our Discovery Process enables you to fully explore the Qualicare opportunity and helps us understand you.
It's designed to make sure you get answers to all your questions and ensures that our team appreciates everything you bring to the Qualicare family as a potential partner.
Qualicare prides itself on the breadth of service and depth of care for it's customers. Likewise, this is true of the relationship with our franchise partners. We are driven by our vision, guided by our values and energized by our franchise partner's success and stories. We are here for you to grow a scalable business that is the difference in care in your community.
