Your Franchise, Your Decision
The Match Options business model is in two parts and it is up to each individual franchise owner to decide which of the Domiciliary/Homecare and Social and Healthcare Personnel packages – or a combination of both – appeals most.
This is the personal care service of the business, also referred to as homecare, which can only be delivered by those licensed by the CQC (Care Quality Commission). Match Options helps each franchise owner to get licensed and train staff to support clients for who tasks are becoming more difficult, or are the result of restricted mobility through an accident or illness. The service includes: providing care for short periods or for 24 hours, personal care, light housework and meal preparation, shopping, waking nights/sleep-ins, sitting services, convalescence/respite holiday care and much more.
Social and Healthcare Personnel
This care service does not require a franchise owner to be licensed by the CQC. Clients that use the service include NHS hospitals, primary healthcare trusts; nursing and residential homes, local authorities, charities, GP surgeries and occupational health organisations are already licensed by the CQC. Some of the types of vacancies covered in this area include: managers, qualified nurses, healthcare assistants, healthcare support workers, housing support workers, domestic and catering workers and cleaners, admin and clerical staff.
The typical development costs for a Match Options franchise, including office set-up costs, training costs and working capital, is £20,000 – £30,000 + VAT. However, this figure depends on what equipment and/or office space you may already have. You would require 50 per cent of your initial investment in liquid capital. Match Options can help arrange future funding for your business, which is normally available subject to status and guarantee security. The first few months will be very hands-on, but you will soon find yourself in a position to employ extra staff, allowing you to move into a management role.
Our Franchise Package
Match Options offers a franchise package that has been designed so its franchise owners are fully equipped to operate their exclusive territories successfully – and increasingly profitably – over the 10-year term of the Franchise Agreement. The package includes a comprehensive Operations Manual and the support of experienced Regional Managers to get your business started – including finding suitable premises and employing staff. Match Options provide three days of residential training, followed by two further weeks in the franchise owner’s territory and a mentoring programme for one year. The three-day residential training package deals with all elements of our business including accounts; office procedures; staff recruitment and compliance procedures; management training; marketing, advertising and PR; customer care; telephone and client enquiry skills; and business development. Only after you have successfully completed your initial training will you be given a Certificate to Trade and be able to use the Match Options trademark and logo.
The Match Options franchise model has been designed to provide franchise owners with a number of income streams.
National contracts – Match Options’ growing number of national contracts means work from these clients is given to franchise owners on a regular basis.
Local contracts – Franchise owners are assisted in creating their own database in order to fill permanent and temporary staff vacancies for clients in their territory.
Training – As Match Options is a member of the UKHCA Skills for Care Workforce Development fund (WDF) Partnership; it is funded by the Government to train those working in the adult social care sector – franchise owners carry out this training.
