Buying a company is not an easy decision. Most people have many questions regarding the manager, financial and business qualifications, income potential, the size of the market, training and much more. We’ve put together some of the most frequently asked questions for our hospice company opportunities. Please use our “learn more” form or call the number at the top of our website for more specific information.
Do I need prior medical background or prior business experience?
No, we will train you in all of the operations of the company. Both business and clinical! Including structuring a developmental program to train you to perform all services, or you may choose to be an investor and thru our nationwide nurse recruitment we will identify the best nurses to staff your business. Franchisees are more likely to be successful if they have a drive to succeed, a competitive spirit and are actively involved in the operation of the business.
Can I operate this business part-time?
Yes, typically the companye will not be the person you see working in the facility. A manager can substitute for the owner so long as either the owner or manager is actively involved in the daily operation of the business.
If I purchase a Blue Horizons company, how soon can I get started?
You can get started now! Just fill out the information request form and a representative will contact you within 24 hours. You can be open for business in 90 days.
What kind of support will I receive?
Prior to your opening, you will complete a training program. The cost of this training is included in your company fee, but you will be responsible for your own travel, food and lodging expenses. You will also have ongoing assistance from our staff to help you in every way from site selection, staffing, compliance, grand opening and business development to closing the books at year end and everything in between. You will also receive ongoing training programs, phone and online support, detailed operations and training manuals, new product development, and much more.
How much does it cost to purchase a company?
As with any new business venture, it is important that you have adequate working capital. For complete investment information, please contact us to receive our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) which details your start up costs and outlines our entire program.
How much money can I make?
This is a common question for anyone evaluating a business investment. As you’ve read, the market for our services is quite large and growing on a daily basis. Earnings often are a function of how quickly and effectively you grow your business. We encourage you to fill-out our online information request and we can review this matter in more detail during our “discovery” process.
Can I purchase multiple companys?
For qualified individuals, we will consider awarding more than one company. Please contact our Director of Franchise Development for more information.
Does Blue Horizons offer financing?
Blue Horizons has a referral program that will give you access to over 5000 lenders.
Am I given territorial protection for my hospice company?
Yes. You will be awarded an exclusive Blue Horizons Hospice Care company territory under the terms of your agreement. We will provide more detail about the territory and the market for hospice services as you move through the company discovery process.
