Howmany places do you shop at, utilize services from, do business with or purchase
products from that are franchised businesses?  Our guess is that
franchising plays a major part in your life and that you have spent more time
in franchises than you even realize.
You probably pumped gas or had your car taken care of at a franchise recently
(BP, Chevron, Shell, Midas, Jiffy Lube, etc)
You’ve definitely eaten at a franchise recently (McDonald’s, Chick Fil-A,
Subway, Quizno’s, Edible Arrangements)

-
You probably stayed at a franchise recently (Hampton Inn, Marriott, Hilton,
Wyndham, Red Roof Inn)

-
You probably have used franchised services recently (Liberty Tax, ServPro,
H&R Block, Century 21, Jani-King)

-
Most Franchises are groups of companies that you probably have never heard of
that have 50-100 locations and may have utilized their services.

Franchising is a business model used in more than 70 industries that generates more than
estimated $1.5 trillion in U.S. sales annually.  Franchised businesses
operated 1 million establishments in the United States through 2011, counting
both establishments owned by franchisees and establishments owned by
franchisors.  There are over 4,000 franchisors in the U.S. – franchise
systems in the U.S. average opening 32 units in the first five years in
business.

Franchising Works for the Following Reasons:

Speed of Growth – Move quickly,
expand a business and a brand over large landscapes in short time
periods.  Franchise organizations have the capability of expanding by
hundreds of units in a single year if given the right concept and market
segment.

Management – Local franchisees provide caring
management team members who have skin in the game and are motivated to succeed.

Raising Capital – Franchising
allows a business to raise capital without giving up equity in the core
business.

Refinement of Systems – Franchising
perfects and refines systems used in a business model, when a business is
duplicated outside of the corporate operations, the systems, procedures and
operating methods are improved with each new unit.

Maximizing the Entrepreneur’s Skill Set – Many business
owners find themselves “Stuck in the kitchen” of their business – as
the founder of a company, franchising allows for complete utilization of your
skills and talents – you now “coach” as opposed to “work”
in the business.  Franchising allows for the entrepreneur to fully
leverage and take advantage of their unique and valuable skill set.

This article is being made available from the Bellevue Reporter:

Assisting Hands Home Care has opened an in-home caregiving operation in Bellevue. Adrian Reeder is the franchise owner.

The company will serve the need for non-medical caregiving services provided to seniors, the disabled and temporarily bedridden in Bellevue and the Eastside. The office is located at 1800 136th Place, Suite 214.

Reeder and his family have experienced first-hand the need for such services. Their interest for in-home care giving began with a neighbor who lived alone with no close relatives.

“Helping her really opened our eyes and showed us the value and need of such services,” said Reeder. “This turned into such a special experience for us that we became her surrogate children.”

According to census bureau statistics, demand for such services continues to grow as 10,000 people reach the age of 65 everyday in the United States.

Assisting Hands Bellevue provides non-medical services such as, but are not limited to: personal care, bathing, dressing, companionship, exercise and mobility assistance, medication reminders and assistance, meal planning and preparation (including specialized diets), transportation and errands, coordination of social activities, light housekeeping and laundry.
