Territories based on population
In terms of location and territory, we also work closely with franchisees to ensure our owners have a competitive edge. Choosing a territory is a collaborative process between your preference, local knowledge, and our expertise and demographic software. At Touching Hearts at Home, our franchise owners have larger territories, as territory size is based upon the number of seniors, not the total population. This provides more opportunity for growth potential for you as a franchisee.
The top referral source in our industry is word-of-mouth from satisfied seniors and their families. We teach our franchisees that building referral sources within their communities is the best way to grow their businesses. Touching Hearts franchisees generate revenue through referrals from hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living communities, doctors, nurses, and social workers. During our initial training, we walk through all scenarios with new owners, so they may begin to establish their network as quickly as possible.
“One of the exciting things to teach a new franchise owner is how they are part of the care community in their territory. You’re connecting the dots. We look at the territory they have gotten involved with as a franchise owner, and we talk about how they connect with the hospitals in their area, how they connect with the rehab facilities in their area, how they connect with the doctors, etc.,” says Ramona Hunt, director of leadership and development.
