Extra Help: The Idea Behind The Franchise
Are you looking for a career change?
POSTED BY CLAIRE ROBINSON ON 25/08/2015 @ 9:00AM
Extra Help was born in 2010 and the original idea behind the business was aimed at the older population. Helping elderly people who are living independently to stay in their homes by assisting with daily tasks is a great idea ...
The Extra Help franchisees love our 4-in-1 service offering! It allows them to help a wider range of people in their local community.
It's often difficult for the older population to ask for help. Our lives have changed so much over the decades. In days gone by, people didn't have cleaners as the wife or mother was usually responsible for the housework while the men went to work.
"This is definitely the way it was when I was a child!"
We've seen huge changes over the last fifty years so you can see why it's sometimes hard for older people to ask for and accept help. Our generation is much more open to the idea of help in the home. Even thirty years ago, how many people do you know who had a cleaner? Nowadays it's totally acceptable.
We find more and more of our clients are gradually allowing themselves to accept the help they need. Some will call us direct, others will be referred by family or friends. We all lead busy lives and it's much nicer to spend your spare time taking a loved one out for lunch or somewhere special, creating those lasting memories. Leave the chores to someone else, I say!
Expanding from our first city, Extra Help is now a franchise business. We have great franchisees all over the country, providing an identical service to their clients under our banner. It's always been our passion to spread the services we offer throughout the entire United Kingdom so franchising seemed the ideal way forward for us.
"We help hundreds of people within our business too!"
Not just the elderly, even though that's where the idea originated. Since those early days, the franchise service offering has grown, creating other branches of Extra Help:
Extra Help Domestic Cleaning – Providing fully insured, professional cleaning and domestic services around the home.
Extra Help Mother's Help – Working alongside new and working mums/parents to help care for their children.
Extra Help for Everyone – Dealing with household tasks to enable working professionals to make the most of their spare time.
We are a management franchise operating within a huge market. We will provide you with a tried and tested opportunity to grow a profitable business within an experienced, supportive network of like-minded professionals, whilst providing valuable services to your local community
Extra Help is a service-orientated business based on high moral standards. You must have no criminal record and demonstrate a commitment to providing a top quality, consistent and trustworthy service.
If you're looking for a career change, ask yourself:
Would you like the freedom & flexibility of running your own business?
Do you want to give back to your local community?
Do you want a 4 in 1 solutions so you can help more people?
Are you passionate and self-motivated?
Would you like the support of a nationally recognised brand?
If you answered yes to all of these, then you should become an Extra Help franchisee!
