Extra Help – with you every step of the way
Are you a kind and caring person who would love to run a business that comes with the unique gift of helping others?
Extra Help is a home-help and domestic services franchise company that operates in a rapidly growing, recession-resilient market.
A prime opportunity
Recent studies show that Britain’s general population is ageing. The number of older people is rapidly increasing, with many of them choosing, or being forced to stay in their own homes and live independently. Along with the closure of many care homes across the country and the fact that local authorities are mostly unwilling to provide non-personal care, a huge opportunity exists to provide the help and assistance that elderly people need to make their lives easier and allow them to maintain their dignity and independence.
What’s more, we don’t just help the Elderly! Extra Help also provides flexible home-help and domestic services to literally anyone who needs them, from new and hard-working parents to time-poor professionals.
Straightforward business model
Our tried-and-tested business model is straightforward and easy to follow. Clients are charged a flat fee per hour and home-helpers are self-employed, thereby organising their own tax and National Insurance. As Extra Help is a management franchise, your job as a franchise owner is simply to find clients and recruit responsible, caring and honest home-helpers to meet their requirements.
Modest, monthly management fees
Extra Help’s ongoing service fees are modest at £200 + VAT per month for the first year, rising to £250 + VAT after your first year of trading. You can realistically recoup your original investment within the first year, meaning that, upon completion of your first year in business, you could be well on your way to generating serious profits.
Our franchisees’ figures speak for themselves. One franchisee is bringing in an astounding £5,500 per month, and others are bringing in up to £4,000 per month, proving that Extra Help is a viable and lucrative business opportunity.
Join our family
Our franchise network really is unique, in that we’re like one, big, extended family. As a franchisee, you’ll also receive access to our National Business Development Manager, who is there to provide you with as much help and guidance as you need to grow a successful business.
Our franchisees are truly passionate about helping people and are encouraged to support and communicate with each other, through social media, regular meet-ups and, of course, our Annual Conference.
