Find the perfect healthcare franchise at The British Franchise Exhibition at EventCity, Manchester, on 16 & 17 June
It is estimated that over 600,000 people are employed within the domiciliary care sector in the UK and this number is expected to increase with the nation’s aging population.1 As the industry grows, businesses are finding that franchising is a successful way of expanding the services they provide for the community.
The British Franchise Exhibition will showcase some of the opportunities available in this expanding sector. Visitors can rest assured that all exhibitors are accredited by The British Franchise Association and operate ethical business practice. The Franchise Exhibitions are proudly the only events of their kind to be fully-accredited by the industry regulators.
Homegrown health care provider, Radfield Home Care, is one brand that recognised the potential for rapid expansion franchising could offer back in 2008. Hannah MacKechnie, Director, established the elderly home care specialist franchise in order to provide high quality care to those in need across the Midlands. On the franchising opportunities within the sector, Hannah comments: “The care sector is one of the most rapidly growing franchise opportunities as the aging population increases in the UK. This trajectory provides an opportunity for people wanting to develop a successful business that is set for growth.”
At the exhibition, attendees will have the opportunity to speak in person with industry experts, gaining a well-rounded idea of what it is like to take on a franchise. Hannah continues: “We find the exhibition provides us with the best opportunity to talk face-to-face with potential franchisees about our brand and they can get a real sense of what working with us would be like.”
For those visiting the exhibition, Hannah comments: “If you are interested in franchising within the care sector, I would advise conducting some research before coming to the exhibition. Read up on the brands and start getting under the skin of what is involved in running a care franchise – that way you will be able to ask more detailed and useful questions on the day.”
Alongside care franchises such as Radfield Home Care, KarePlus and Promedicare24, the event will offer excellent opportunities with brands in a variety of sectors, including McDonald’s, Zero Dry Time and, event sponsors, Anytime Fitness. Visitors will be able to receive free impartial advice from professional advisers and take advantage of over 40 educational seminars.
The Growing Your Own Business Conference, incorporated within the exhibition, provides the opportunity to learn from industry experts and build knowledge of how to develop a successful business. A selection of free workshops at the conference includes ’10 ways to kick it off’, ‘Marketing Masterclass’ and ‘20 sales insights in 20 minutes’.
The British Franchise Exhibition takes place at EventCity, Manchester on 16 & 17 June.
