Frequently Asked Questions
Why buy a franchise?
We have been working in the home care marketplace for over a decade, and we offer our franchisees a wealth of knowledge. Entrepreneurship is a rewarding endeavor, and it is better in a network where you have support from others in the same industry. With us, you are in the business for yourself, but not by yourself!
What kind of support can I expect?
We offer our franchisees thorough training and operations manuals, help with set-up, health compliance, municipal and federal compliance guidelines, on-going health-related reports, sales and marketing advice, forms, paperwork, and much more. We’ve taken care of everything behind the scenes to get your franchise up and running faster and more successfully than doing it all on your own.
What kind of networking is involved?
We have special events and marketing strategies to reach the clients that are interested and would want to hire you. These events help everyone in our franchise grow and reach new clients. Just Like Family is a trusted name throughout Canada, and we have built our network to help us all continuously grow.
Do I have to be an owner/operator?
Absolutely, our name says it all! We want franchise members that make their territory their own! This is a hands-on type of business, and we want to ensure our clientele are more than ecstatic with their experience at Just Like Family.
How many hours does an owner/operator typically work in a week?
We work more than what is required. We believe in following up with clients and continually going the extra mile. Our brand Just Like Family means that our reputation is to treat all of our clients like VIP. It’s just good business and good Karma!
Does being a franchisee get stressful?
When you are doing work that you love, it isn’t work! It’s true that caregiving can lead to burnout, which is why we have strategies to help manage your workload. It also helps to have the support of our network – we are more than just a franchise, we are members of the same team!
What is the initial investment?
There is a one-time initial franchise fee of $37,000, and the total investment necessary to start and grow your family is dependant on a certain number of factors that vary from one franchisee owner to another. You can have a better idea on costs involved after our initial conversation.
