Frequently Asked Questions About 2nd Family Franchises
Questions: Open a Senior Care Business
What experience do I need to become a 2nd Family franchise owner?
We seek franchised owners who will be committed to being actively involved in daily business operations. Ideal in home care franchisee candidates should demonstrate experience in sales and marketing, as well as ability to manage staff and daily operations. Some prior healthcare or nursing experience is helpful, but it is not required. It will also be beneficial if a franchisee already has some established relationships within the community that will help create referral bases. Franchise owners must also demonstrate a commitment to our brand’s high standards, including our “Grandma Rule”: an ethical approach, and a genuine commitment to clients and their families.
What is provided as part of the 2nd Family home care franchise program?
First, you will be granted a protected territory in which to operate your senior care business. 2nd Family will then provide a pre-opening training program for franchisees at our corporate support center. It is estimated that this training will be at least five days, including both classroom and hands-on training. In addition to the training program outlined above, a franchisor representative will spend at least one day within the first few weeks at your local office providing additional on-site training. We will also present franchisees with a copy of our confidential operations manual to help run the business properly on a day-to-day basis.
