Elder Care Business - The Process for Starting with Comfort Keepers®
Thank you for your interest in learning more about a Comfort Keepers franchise opportunity. Your franchise development representative will guide you through the following steps in order to give you the information you want to make an informed decision. Our mutual evaluation process generally takes between 6-8 weeks.
Introduction to Comfort Keepers
In our initial phone conversation, you will be introduced to all of the following: the non-medical in-home care franchise industry; our company; the Comfort Keepers business concept; and the role of the franchisee in our system.
|2||Complete A Qualification Questionnaire
Your information will be held in the strictest of confidence. In order for us to move forward, you must complete this step in our mutual evaluation process.
This will be an in-depth conversation with your franchise development representative where you will learn about Comfort Keepers' ongoing assistance, training programs, marketing programs, franchisee support center, and the field and sales support. You will not be alone!
|4||Franchisee Due Diligence
At this point you have amassed a basic understanding of how a Comfort Keepers senior care franchise operates. This necessary background will enable you to speak comfortably with Comfort Keepers franchisees as you validate your understanding.
|5||Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) and In-Depth Territory Discussion
For your protection the Federal Trade Commission requires that franchisors provide a disclosure document. Read it carefully for a greater understanding of what our mutual relationship will be and take it to your advisors. Then you’ll be ready for the next important step, the discussion of how we will define your protected territory.
