In episode 3 of Franchising with Purpose, Steven Turner, Chief Operations Officer of Griswold Home Care welcomes Brandon Harrison and Viking Dietrich, Griswold Franchise Owners in West Houston, TX, as they discuss why they chose a Griswold Home Care franchise and offer some start-up tips when beginning your own business.
When looking at franchise options, there are many to choose from, but home care is the one franchise opportunity that can impact and change people’s lives. That is very appealing if you’re looking for an industry that will not only grow because the need is there but also give clients the chance to remain in their own homes despite their age or disability. Serving the community in this way is the primary focus of home care.
When shopping for other home care franchise opportunities, Griswold stands above the rest because we provide opportunities to potential franchise owners to become exemplary employers with the Griswold business model.
With corporate support, franchise owners are able to promote and celebrate their staff and especially their caregivers. Caregivers are the backbone of our business and the face of our business in each community. Griswold focuses on helping and mentoring them to excel in what they do, and rewards them for their dedication to the profession and the company.
Here are some key points to consider as a new franchisee.
This is probably the most important question to ask yourself.
You must have a passion for helping people in the community and a desire to have a positive influence on your clients and their families.
You should have a desire to be a great employer. This will impact the community as word gets around about how satisfied your employees are with their job and with the Griswold company.
The startup process is straightforward. The main components of the initial investment are listed here.
It is not complicated at all-there is no medical equipment, there is no inventory to buy.
It was a very uncomplicated and transparent process with help from Griswold Home Care's Corporate Office. Their compliance department is helpful and will provide operation manuals and all the information needed to open your business. They have the information you need for your state and will help you obtain whatever is necessary to satisfy the state regulatory requirements.
“Another selling point for us was the collaboration that you get from the other owners in your area.”
