We make it easier to start your own business by offering our franchise opportunity for a lower initial investment than our competition. However, we don’t skimp on value.
Our franchise provides multiple revenue streams to boost your bottom line, including senior care, medical/registry staffing, senior placement, and skilled nursing options (home health). You won’t have any royalties for your first six months, and then royalties gradually increase over time. We offer a population add-on bonus, large territories, licensure refunds, a smaller franchise system focused on partnership, an aggressive growth model, and a comprehensive, hands-on training and support program.
Your franchise startup kit provides all the tools you’ll need to kickstart your business including licensing assistance in all states, initial and ongoing state regulations training, all initial marketing collateral, a professional website specific to your location, social media pages and posts, a 24 hour on-call support team, key employee acquisition assistance, plus the best training program in the business.
According to a report published by the U.S. Census Bureau in partnership with the National Institute on Aging, the segment of the population aged 65 years and older is expected to double by 2050, from 48 million to 88 million. Worldwide, this older demographic is expected to jump from just 8.5% of the population to nearly 17% in the same time frame. This means the potential market for home care services just among the elderly is enjoying massive growth, and older Americans are only a portion of the total market for home care services.
The following facts also indicate a robust market primed for growth.
More Americans will be living at home during their retirement years, with fewer choices for occasional to frequent home care, which translates to a wide and ever-growing market for our services.
Not at all. Our franchisees frequently have no experience in either the health or home care industries. Many have no previous business experience at all. We provide everything you’ll need to be successful, including industry-specific and general business training.
You certainly could just start your own business, but you’ll be in it completely alone. The benefit to a franchise is that you’re buying into a proven system, complete with standardized practices, operational manuals, and effective marketing materials.
With A Better Solution, you’ll be a part of a team, with an established, respected brand. Being a franchise owner offers instant credibility, something you simply can’t get on your own. You’ll also have access to exclusive partnership programs, preferred rates with vendors, and a library of useful marketing and branding materials.
Our national program website also helps with your marketing efforts, sending qualified leads directly to your inbox. With our thorough training program, mentorship program, and constant support, being an ABS franchisee offers a complete, turnkey business franchise opportunity.
Yes. ABS Territory Awards are exclusive and come with the population add-on option at a reduced rate or free. They include a minimum of 450K in population, with seniors comprising no less than 10%. All territories carry a minimum of 20+ referral sources for business success.
For those that qualify, the initial franchise fee is $48,000. Additionally, we require you have $125,000 on hand to ramp up the business over the first six months. Finally, you’ll need a $300,000 passive investment financial requirement available to hire your initial staff and pay management fees.
We don’t ourselves, but we can give prospective franchisees access to a number of third-party financing options. They can also consider home equity lines of credit, unsecured credit lines, and a penalty-free loan to themselves from their 401(k).
A Better Solution franchise owners tend to be highly-motivated individuals interested in achieving success for themselves and their families. These are people that know what they want out of life and are willing to work hard to get it. Frequently they’ve dreamed of owning their own business for some time, or have been involved with businesses in the past and are looking for a new opportunity.
They choose a home care franchise to pursue their dreams because they have a strong interest in helping people and doing something good for their local community. They enjoy working with people and are committed to providing the very best care possible to those that need it.
Our franchisees are people that love a good challenge and receive satisfaction from tackling hard problems and doing something good. They’re open-minded and willing to learn from those that have come before them. ABS franchisees are wonderful people and we’re happy to have them in our family.
We work diligently to make sure our franchisees get all of their questions answered and have access to the highest quality training and support in the industry.
After your pre-launch training at our office in California, you’ll get two weeks of rigorous instruction on every aspect of your business. This is followed by eight days of additional field training on location. You’ll have us in the trenches with you.
Once you’re up and running you’ll get ongoing consultation and technical assistance. We’ll assist you with benchmarking, goal setting, getting your business operations streamlined and financial planning. You’ll receive regular coaching sessions, topical webinars, a monthly call with our CEO, as well as frequent video chats with senior leadership. You’ll also be assigned an established ABS home care franchise owner to mentor you and offer invaluable assistance.
It’s easy! You can either give us a call or fill out the short information request form on our website. You’ll find a tab for it on the righthand side of the page. Once we have your information we’ll contact you to talk about registration, qualifications, share additional information about the opportunity with you and answer any questions you have.
If you’re still interested, we’ll schedule an introductory call with our leadership team. We’ll perform a territory analysis and go over our Franchise Disclosure Document with you. Then you’ll attend a Discovery Day meeting with the ABS leadership team in San Diego, CA. If after this the opportunity feels like a good fit and you satisfy our minimum qualifications, you’ll be ready to sign for and purchase your new business, and your journey to success will begin!
