With individual franchises racking up thousands of hours of care per week, Caremark is a rewarding but by no means part-time Franchise opportunity. Karen Pennington, Managing Director, talked us through Franchising in the Care sector.

What makes the Caremark opportunity unique?

We have Franchisees that look after 3,000-4,000 hours of Care for Customers per week, in their own home. We’ve got recognised training, and accredited training. Currently we have 78 Franchisees across the UK Network. We offer those franchisees a fantastic support network in terms of field based and head office support.

What makes a successful franchisee?
A successful Franchisee to us is a business-focussed individual because this is very much a Management Franchise. So our most successful Franchisees would be people who are able to be comfortable with networking and the Business Development side and are very receptive to working with the Franchisor to jointly make their business successful. And it is 100% involvement in the business as a requirement as this is certainly not a part-time opportunity!
