1What experience do I need to become a RIGHT ACCORD franchise owner?
We do not require you to have prior in-home senior care business experience before joining RIGHT ACCORD. We look for people who are compassionate and who will be dedicated to providing quality care and ensuring professional operations within their businesses. Existing independent senior care business owners and qualified military veterans are encouraged to apply. For all franchise owners, regardless of their backgrounds, we will provide the training, tools, and support needed to run an effective operation.
2What is provided as part of the RIGHT ACCORD program?
Before you begin training at our corporate support center, you will spend up to two days on pre-training preparation, reviewing operations software and manuals. Then, your initial training will consist of up to five days at our corporate office and up to three days in your territory within the first six months of your opening for business. Initial training is offered to the franchise owner and up to two additional staff members or designated managers (three people total).
3How much will the RIGHT ACCORD program investment cost me?
The total initial investment ranges from $77,850 and $132,250 for a start-up operation. This includes a $35,000 initial franchise fee (this fee is reduced for qualified business that convert to the RIGHT ACCORD model, as well as qualified military veterans). As with any new venture, it’s important to have adequate capital to fund the initial business growth stages.
4Is financing available?
No. We do not provide direct financing to franchisees, but we may refer to financing sources on a case by case basis.
5Are there ongoing fees to pay?
Franchise owners will pay a royalty rate of 6% of gross revenues. These fees allow us to fund our ongoing management of the corporate website, continuing research into the best software applications for the business, plus continuous support services and the development of business practices, marketing tools, training programs, and systems upgrades.
6Are there any advertising fees?
Franchise owners are required to spend a minimum of $500 per month on a rolling quarterly basis on local marketing ($6,000/year minimum); franchise owners will also contribute 2% of gross revenues into our system marketing fund. These collected funds will be used to generate marketing strategies and campaigns, and to develop local marketing materials used to promote the RIGHT ACCORD brand.
7What is the term of the agreement?
The initial term of your franchise agreement will be ten years, with three subsequent successor agreement options of five years each.
