Initial Investment

Investment Information

Having the necessary capital is imperative for any business start-up. When you’re considering starting a franchise with HomeWell, your first step should be evaluating your current finances and understanding how this investment will change them. This might require meeting with your accountant or another financial professional to ensure you’re in the best place for starting a business.

Every aspect of your payment accounts for a crucial part of the home care franchise cost. To keep this initial expense transparent and give you confidence in the process, we’ve broken down the expenditures of starting a HomeWell Care Services franchise below so you know what to expect.

What Is the Initial Investment?

The first cost you’ll encounter is your initial franchise fee. Where the rest of your investment covers certain other expenses to help you get off the ground, the initial franchise fee is a one-time payment covering everything from intellectual property licenses to application costs and services. After your initial franchise fee is paid, the rest of your expenses vary.

For a single, standard HomeWell territory, this starting fee is $49,500. The initial fee covers your license to utilize HomeWell’s intellectual property, our training and onboarding platforms, access to your Franchise Business Coach and much more. This is a one-time, upfront fee that is typically due when you sign your franchise agreement. Essentially, this investment grants you the keys to our system.

Everything we get from your franchise fee goes toward opening and starting up your franchise. While the HomeWell franchise costs may seem like a large undertaking, understand that working with an established brand eliminates many of the hidden costs of getting a business off the ground, like advertising and marketing needs.

How Much Does a Franchise Cost?

The rest of your initial HomeWell franchise cost depends on your launch needs. Some things, like certifications or office supplies, you may already have. Others, like furniture and insurance, are likely to be additional expenses for any franchisee. Here are some things you should factor into your start-up costs:

  • Franchise fee
  • Travel expenses
  • Real estate
  • Office furnishing
  • Signage
  • Computer hardware and software
  • Office supplies
  • Marketing materials and strategy
  • Payroll expenses
  • Caregiver recruitment, hiring and training
  • Professional fees
  • Pre-launch and opening costs
  • Licenses 
  • Insurance
  • Three months of additional funding

Furthermore, you should also have funding to cover at least three months of expenses. This stipend gives you time to find and train staff and get your business set up and running. As with any business, it will take time for you to start seeing returns on your investment in a HomeWell Care Services franchise. You should plan to be able to fund your business for a couple of months on your own.

In total, your initial investment could range from $96,900-$225,800, including the starting fee. Because we’re dedicated to complete transparency, we’ve broken down each estimated expense listed above and their expected highest and lowest costs in your Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). Take the time to read over this document carefully, and even if you hope to keep costs at their minimum, you should have plans in place to cover their maximum determinations.

    How Do I Finance My Investment?

    Every franchise owner has unique investment possibilities. Depending on your current funding, resources and business experience, you may be wondering how to finance the total franchise cost. Many people can qualify for loans, lines of credit or additional funding to reduce their personal financial burden. Common options for business owners to finance their franchise investments include:

    • Small Business Administration (SBA) business loans
    • 401(k) Rollovers for Business Startups (ROBS)
    • Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)
    • Unsecured loans

    When you invest in a HomeWell franchise, you have our full support throughout the entire process. If you ever have additional questions or concerns about the cost of a home care franchise, you can discuss the specifics with our franchise development representatives.

    Why Choose a HomeWell Care Services Franchise?

    Elysa Coleman

    The biggest factor for us in choosing to do a franchise instead of launching a business on our own was really the wealth of knowledge HomeWell provides. We could have gone the route of figuring everything out on our own, but we decided that the training, support, and knowledge the HomeWell team provides was worth the investment.

    I was reluctant to join a franchise, but what drew me to HomeWell was their family feel; it wasn’t a corporate feel. HomeWell provides us with direction and gives us what we need but also gives us the freedom to do what we feel is best for our franchises.
