As the expansion of the healthcare industry in the UK shows no signs of slowing down, you may be thinking about wanting to begin your own healthcare business.
Knowing how to start a healthcare business can be a difficult process, especially if you are new to the industry. Do you need specialist qualifications to operate as a franchisee? What support is available for setting up this type of business? These are a few of the questions that we get asked from people who are interested in starting a franchise with us.
Our step-by-step guide will take you through the process of starting your own Sova Healthcare franchise.
Get Qualified and Trained
One of the most important things that you should do before you set up your franchise is to get qualified and trained.
If you decide to become a franchisee with us, we’ll provide you with extensive training and support to get your franchise up and running. Some of the roles required within your potential franchise, such as healthcare assistants or carers will need to have a recognised qualification to work in the sector.
These are important factors that need to be considered as part of your journey to becoming a Sova franchisee.
Research the Healthcare Franchise Landscape
Having a good understanding of the current healthcare franchising landscape is crucial to operating a successful business.
There are many questions that you need to ask yourself with your proposed healthcare franchise, which includes:
- Who are the biggest healthcare franchisees operating in the country?
- Do I need to have experience of working in the industry?
- What is the cost of setting up a franchise?
Networking with healthcare professionals, as well as getting in touch with our team can help you get valuable advice and insight into becoming a healthcare franchisee.
Create a Business Plan
After you’ve done your research, you should start to create your business plan. The plan should outline the following information:
- Your franchise’s target audience
- Outline your healthcare franchise’s marketing strategy.
- How your healthcare franchise will benefit clients in the area you plan to operate in.
- Financial information, such as projections and budgets.
Appointing a business coach or advisor to help you create your plan can be very useful. They can provide suggestions and guidance to ensure you have a successful healthcare business.
Present the Business Plan to Our Leadership Team
Once you’ve put your business plan for your healthcare franchise together, you will have a meeting with our leadership team to present your business plan to us.
Within the presentation, you should explain how your healthcare franchise will benefit the region or area you are planning to operate in. Clearly outlining your prospective franchise’s goals and objectives will ensure that you have the best chances of your proposal being accepted.
Begin Marketing Your Franchise
After presenting your business plan to our leadership team, we will decide if your proposed Sova franchise is successful.
If your proposal is accepted, we’ll provide you with the resources and support required to help launch your franchise. We can also assist with marketing your Sova Healthcare franchise in your town or region so that everyone in your community is aware of the services that you are offering to potential clients.
