Touching Hearts at Home Franchise Is a Multigenerational Family Business
Parents can involve children and other family members in many aspects of operation, creating an inclusive, whole-family enterprise
One of the most appealing aspects of small-business ownership is being able to include spouses, children and other relatives in its operations. While not all operational models are attuned to that desire, the Touching Hearts at Home in-home senior care franchise is designed with that very much in mind.
“Many Touching Hearts owners are men and women who are joined by their family in almost every aspect of the operations,” explains Scott Kummel, Director of Franchise Sales. “Many couples jointly operate a franchise, and in other cases parents run the business while training their children not just on how a Touching Hearts operates, but on business ownership in general.”
Family involvement grows alongside business
Often a Touching Hearts at Home in-home senior care franchise will be launched by an individual whose spouse keeps his or her employment while the new business is building a client base and income stream. Then, once it has achieved the income levels that the franchise owner mapped out in a business plan, the other spouse can come on board.
“Any well-run business has a multi-year plan for growth, and Touching Hearts is not different,” Kummel says. “Franchise owners know that it’s going to take time to build up brand recognition and a client base in the community, and once they’ve done so there’s a need to add to their operational staff. The husband or wife who’s remained in another career has been preparing for that transition, and so when he or she joins the franchise as a full-time employee it is an expected and welcome staffing enhancement.”
Large families can operate multiple franchises
Many Touching Hearts owners also involve their children, brothers and sisters and other relatives in the business. This provides an opportunity for continuity should the children wish to take over the franchise operations when their parents decide to retire, and it also creates the ability for a multi-franchise business strategy.
“In many markets we have franchise owners who have purchased multiple territories not for immediate growth, but for expansion as more members of their family get involved in the Touching Hearts at Home business,” Kummel says. “The original franchise owner wants to grow, and he or she knows that once their friends and relatives see the value of this business and what it brings to the community, they often want to come on board. With additional territories already marked out, they can move quickly and efficiently to make that happen.”
