Franchise Business Review’s Top Low-Cost Franchise

 

Home Helpers was identified by independent franchisee satisfaction research firm, Franchise Business Review, as being one of only 80 franchises to qualify for its 2018 Top Low-Cost Franchises list. Brands on the list had to have high franchisee satisfaction and an investment of under $100,000 at the time their franchisees participated in Franchise Business Review’s franchisee satisfaction survey.

Franchise Business Review (FBR) provides the only rankings of franchises based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance. FBR publishes its rankings of top franchises in its annual Guide to Today’s Top Franchises, as well as in quarterly reports throughout the year that rank the top franchises in specific sectors.

Thousands of franchisees representing nearly 150 low-cost brands participated in Franchise Business Review’s franchisee satisfaction survey between November 2016 and May 2018.

Home Helpers franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training and support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.

Questions included:

  • Was the training good?
  • Do the marketing programs drive business?
  • Are you getting the support you need to be successful?
  • Would you recommend your franchise to others?

“Many people never consider buying a franchise because they think they can’t afford it. But what they don’t know is there are several very solid business opportunities which can provide the satisfaction and benefits of business ownership but don’t require a huge financial investment,” says Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “The low-cost franchises that made this year’s list are excellent options for those who are looking to make the leap to business ownership.”

Low initial cost and exceptional support are only two of the many reasons to choose Home Helpers as a franchise investment.

Home Helpers has developed a proprietary Territory and Marketing optimization tool. This is the only Home Care Franchise that has leveraged big data to understand exactly who the target audience is and what elements make a successful Home Helpers territory.

Potential franchisees also see the immense value of Home Helpers Exceptional Caregivers Recognition and Recruitment program. The Exceptional Caregiver program gives clients and their families the opportunity to have their Caregiver recognized by their franchisee and by Home Helpers National Support Center. Tribute videos showcase the amazing gifts the Caregivers share with clients each day and celebrate them as the cornerstone of the annual conference. People love the stories. The views continue to add up, giving franchisees an unending source of brand exposure.

Many people choose franchised businesses because they want to own an instantly recognizable brand. They have an entrepreneurial spirit, ready to be their own boss. They also see the risks inherent in starting from scratch. Home Helpers strengthened its training program to meet the needs of today’s franchisees. The Home Helpers Franchise Services team developed a proprietary two-year onboarding process. It combines classroom learning with on-site and in-the-field training. By moving to a two-year comprehensive onboarding program, Home Helpers supports new owners as they go through their opening process, recruiting the right Caregivers, and building their business. The feedback from owners through the Franchise Business Review Satisfaction Survey supports this innovative training method.

Exceptional training is a great reason to choose Home Helpers, but it’s not the biggest benefit of investing in a low-cost franchise opportunity. With less money going to fund fixed start-up costs, you’ll have more money for operational items that drive new business and cash-flow.

According to the Franchise Business Review, “It’s a common myth in franchising that in order to grow a large, successful business, you have to invest a lot of money. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, many of the low-cost franchises on our awards list have much better return on investment (ROI) than their more expensive competitors.”

If you’re looking for the best franchise for your money in today’s marketplace, with the highest satisfaction in its investment class, this is it. Home Helpers is an innovative, industry leader and the right choice for a low-cost, high ROI investment.
