At HomeWell, the success of its owners, new and existing, has always been at the forefront. With access to HomeWell’s vast marketing and brand resource platforms, ongoing support from dedicated franchise business coaches, and the ability to leverage HomeWell’s expertly designed Signature™ Programs, owners are equipped to establish a strong presence in their communities and grow their business.

HomeWell is also focused on enhancing its training efforts for owners with the development of a robust training platform to keep owners apprised of best practices and industry trends and offer more insights into improving clients’ quality of life.

In the last few years, HomeWell has experienced tremendous growth, signing over 35 new owners and expanding its footprint in 25 new states. After year-over-year growth of more than 40 percent in several key areas, HomeWell earned itself a spot on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in 2021.

Brandon Clifford, senior vice president of HomeWell’s development and franchise services areas, believes that the franchise’s ongoing success is largely due to the caliber of its owners and their commitment to providing the highest level of care to clients.

As a key player in the home care industry, HomeWell believes empowering its owners is the key to helping as many families as possible through its award-winning home care services.

The Burkburnett, Texas-based home care franchise HomeWell has 50 locations representing over 100 territories across the United States.

Generally, the franchise business model offers new entrepreneurs the chance to enter the space without having to build a completely new business from the ground up. This model allows new owners to join companies that have an established brand and built-in systems that set them up for success.

Still, the cost of franchise fees can be steep and a barrier to entry for those looking to enter the business. Prior to HomeWell’s announcement, a potential owner would need to shell out $49,500 in initial franchise fees, which is about in line with other home care franchises, though fees do vary.

At most home care companies, the initial franchising fee doesn’t include the funds needed for licensing, training and other costs.

Even though HomeWell has lifted its initial franchise fee, potential owners will still need to meet specific liquid capital and net worth qualifications.

In addition to HomeWell’s zero initial franchise fee offering, the company will beef up its training efforts for its franchise owners. Specifically, HomeWell will develop a comprehensive training platform that keeps owners informed about best practices, industry trends and other insights.

“We invested significantly in our training and support efforts,” Franz said. “Earlier this year, we hired a 25-year learning and training veteran, Erika Ehlers, to join our team, assess our entire training system and revamp the entire learning program as necessary.”

Over the past six months, Ehlers has been doing a full needs assessment with HomeWell’s current owners, according to Franz.

Ultimately, Franz believes this will have a positive impact on the company.

“At HomeWell, we really like to lead the pack, we like to be innovative and make bold moves in order to help our owners, as well as deliver on the need for home care,” she said. “I’m not sure if other home care franchise companies will follow suit, but we are hopeful in this endeavor. We think it’s going to help us meet our goals of becoming a more national brand, as well as help our current franchise vehicles.”
