Right at Home Opens Croydon Office

Right at Home celebrated the opening of its 28th UK office this month, providing quality home care services to people in and around Croydon. Owner Hakeem Anjorin, an active volunteer, was formerly a self-employed business consultant before he decided to use franchising as a route into a more fulfilling line of work – one that he recognised was also a high growth sector.

Supported by Right at Home, Anjorin has secured a prominent shop frontage for his office, becoming the first office in the UK network to start up in a high street location. He then worked with the head office team to recruit Angie Farlam to work alongside him; an experienced local Registered Manager who shares his passion for providing only the best standards of home care to her clients.

Anjorin's location strategy has paid early dividends, with Right at Home Croydon attracting so much passing interest that within days of receiving his registration from the Care Quality Commission he already has a strong team of CareGivers for Angie to train and a number of potential care packages for her to assess.

Anjorin said: “I am really excited that the dream is now becoming a reality and I feel confident that, with the proven Right at Home business model, the full support of the head office team behind me and Angie by my side, my ambitions to grow this business into something great can and will be fulfilled.”

Right at Home UK – now a Full Member of the British Franchise Association (bfa) – started franchising in the UK in early 2011 and since then has adopted a strategy of measured growth, which focuses on finding the right franchisees to ensure the continued success of the group.

It won recognition of its ethical approach to franchising and outstanding business support when the bfa named Right at Home UK the Emerging Franchisor of the Year 2014. It was also a finalist in the Best Franchise Awards and gained Five Star Franchise Status for its high levels of franchisee satisfaction.
