Why Choose Independent?
Being an independent care provider can appear daunting, however with the right support, having the autonomy and drive to succeed can yield huge rewards – for both you and those in your care.
The main reason that people choose to start their own independent business is the level of control they can have over it. Compared to starting a franchised business, you have complete control over the direction and ethos of your organisation.
However, having the independence to make your own decisions makes your service more efficient, while being able to tailor your processes benefits those in your care by directly addressing their requirements. Being part of a franchise can sometimes feel like being at the wheel of an ocean liner, as any variation from the course set out by the centralised organisation can prove to be difficult and time consuming.
Going independent also has significant financial benefits, as starting a franchised company can often come with huge upfront fees and ongoing royalty payments to the franchisor. This may benefit your organisation in the short-term, but further down the line you may end up feeling constrained by the limitations and financial commitment to the centralised group.
The Problem with Franchises
The biggest downside in buying into a franchise is the lack of autonomy. Ultimately, the key decisions, such as the services and products you sell are down to the franchisor. Typically, you would not even have control over the business’ opening hours, marketing or even where your franchise is located.
Some may argue that the downside to starting your own independent health and social care business is that you are unable to benefit from the access to the franchisor’s key resources and support. This may include training, ongoing support and marketing materials.
