Is financing available?
While Assisting Hands Home Care® does not provide financing directly, we would be happy to refer you to one of the major banks that finance business start-ups, including franchises. Franchisees will need to invest approximately 40-50 percent (40-50%) of the investment for an Assisting Hands franchise out of their own capital.
Do I need any previous experience?
We do not require a medical background or clinical training. We are looking for individuals who have strong management skills, the ability to make the necessary financial commitment, the drive and energy to be their own boss—and more importantly—a high level of compassion and strong desire to make a difference.
What are typical location hours?
Generally, Assisting Hands Home Care hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. We also provide 24/7 customer coverage.
Once I am a franchisee, is my territory protected?
Yes. Once you choose an available area, your exclusive territory will be determined based upon demographics such as population, as well as your distance from other franchisees.
May I own more than one franchise?
Yes. For those who qualify, we offer a discounted franchise fee on the purchase of multiple franchise territories.
How long does it take to open the business after signing the franchise agreements?
This can vary depending on your site and when it is available for occupation. On average, most franchisees open their Assisting Hands office three to six months after signing their franchise agreement.
What training and education is provided to new franchisees?
