Seven Up (for Award): The Un-Territory Check?

Blue DotFor all of our franchise broker partners and associated referral partners, here is a very quick overview of seven territories available locally:

Pasco county is divided in two, and each has the potential to blossom along with the continued growth of the county.  If Pasco ever reached the population density of Pinellas (St. Petersburg), it could contain four territories.  Pasco county includes Wesley Chapel, Zephyrhills, Hudson, Dade City, New Port Richey, and Odessa.

Ocala is represented by two territories, as well.  One of which has two major referral sources practically across the street from each other.  Remember, with Always Best Care your referral sources are protected.

Lakeland and the surrounding area comprises two territories that are primed for growth as that area enjoys the benefits of Amazon and Publix both looking to expand and flourish.

Last, but not least, Pinellas County actually has four open territories and it would be tough to pick just one!  Demographics in and around Clearwater/St. Petersburg are ideal for our business model.

For more information, please give us a call or drop us a note and we will be happy to answer your questions or discuss the particulars.

ABC = Another Brilliant Closing in New Jersey

Slide0Michael Friedberg, Richard Friedberg, Rimona Yellin, and an associate, were looking for an opportunity in the senior care industry.  They all have many years of small business ownership experience, mostly in software development, with plenty of prior marketing experience.  With their combined experiences, and their interest in the senior care industry, it was a natural for them to look at Always Best Care Senior Services.

After a short but thorough Discovery process, the team made the decision to join the Always Best Care family, and closed the deal in time to attend the Always Best Care Northeast Super Regional Meeting held in New York City on June 2-3. Their team will be attending the Always Best Care University training in July and we look forward to their opening in August.

Mark and Michele are the Tampa, FL-based Area Representatives for Always Best Care Senior Services.  
They would be happy to answer any questions you have about Always Best Care, in general, and opportunities around Tampa Bay, specifically.

Q: How soon to profitability?

A:  There is no single answer, as each territory is unique and each owner brings different skills, teams and capital to the task.  Area Representatives, or Field Support Office staff, will work with new owners on office set up and structure, P & L planning and tracking, business generation and most everything else associated with establishing the business, generating revenue and creating profit.

In the end, the timeline is a function of many things including the new owner’s personal goals, drive, networking and leadership skills.

We have a target of generating revenue within 90 days of formal classroom training, and have surpassed that goal with our local owners.  Our local ‘pre-heating’ strategy has proven effective in generating the connections and contacts needed to  jump-start a territory.

Slide3The best way to gather information on that question is through reviewing the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) and speaking with franchise owners during the Validation phase of the structured due diligence process.

As always, we look forward to the opportunity to discuss the details with you.
