A small group discussing about business strategy.

Our franchisees provide in-home, non-medical care for seniors and those with disabilities. Owning a Touching Hearts franchise is a worthwhile investment of both time and money for entrepreneurs who desire a rewarding career. With affordable startup costs, a Touching Hearts franchise business answers a great demand in a rapidly growing market, and gives franchisees the chance to make a difference in people’s lives.

Our history and culture also set us apart from competitors. Bringing more than 30 years of franchising and senior care experience to Touching Hearts at Home, our CEO and founder, Renae Peterson, offers franchise owners leadership expertise that can’t be found anywhere else. It’s the compassion and service, which Renae herself built her career upon and teaches our franchisees today, that is our culture and is foundational to our thriving company.

Start a Touching Hearts at Home franchise with a low initial investment

Most entrepreneurs spend hundreds of thousands — if not millions — of dollars opening a new business. Not Touching Hearts at Home. We offer an affordable business to begin, with startup costs ranging from $52,900 to $75,600 for the first six months of business. These costs cover such expenses as: office space, office equipment, advertising and marketing, insurance and miscellaneous business expenses. Our proven business model takes the guess work out of opening and operating a Touching Hearts at Home franchise, which sets our franchisees up for success from day one.

The demand for non-medical, in-home senior care is great as most seniors desire to age in their homes

By 2030, the senior population in the U.S. will approach approximately 72 million! That means as most seniors age and want to remain in their homes if possible, there will be a great demand for the services Touching Hearts provides. In the burgeoning industry of senior care, projected to grow rapidly within the next decade, Touching Hearts at Home is in the right place at the right time.

Touching Hearts franchise owners have potential to grow their businesses quickly

Unlike many of our competitors, Touching Hearts at Home is not saturated in markets across the country. We offer large, exclusive territories for franchising in high demand locations and are ramping up for rapid expansion nationwide.

Touching Hearts at Home Franchise changes people’s lives

We see the opportunity to provide caregiving services to seniors as a privilege that must be met with great integrity, always putting empathy and the belief in the dignity of all people at the forefront of our work.

A Touching Hearts team is often “first in” as loved ones make care plans for their senior family member. Touching Hearts at Home Caregivers help seniors with basic, non-medical tasks of daily living, which help to keep them out of nursing homes and continue to live in their own homes independently for as long as possible. Many of our relationships with clients span several years, even decades — making Caregivers regarded more like family members than service providers. It’s truly a fulfilling career for our franchise owners, who have given peace of mind to thousands of families and added years of quality living to their seniors’ lives.

Touching Hearts at Home stands out from the competition

Our franchisees benefit from the unparalleled expertise of our CEO and founder, Renae Peterson. Renae has spent much of her entire career in the franchise industry. Her brother, Dallen Peterson, founded Merry Maids, of which Renae owned two Merry Maids franchises. Years later, she worked closely with ServiceMaster — as a franchisee, a franchisor and a franchise consultant. Renae founded Touching Hearts at Home, which grew into a leading home care provider in the Minneapolis/St. Paul market before she franchised it in 2007.

Renae’s 30 years of experience equip her to coach, train and lead our franchisees with hands-on, personal experience from someone who has successfully run her own franchise business; you won’t find that type of experience in other franchises in our industry.

We are proud of our company’s culture of service and integrity. “To be truly successful in this industry and with Touching Hearts at Home, you really must genuinely care about the people,” Renae says. “Our most successful owners are authentic, feel good about what they’re doing, want to make a difference and thrive on serving others.” We have franchise owners from a variety of backgrounds, but there’s at least one commonality among them: a passion for their work.

We help aging seniors stay in their homes, preserving their quality of life
