National home care provider and franchisor Caremark Ltd has announced the latest franchisees to join its network. Rakesh Mazumdar will be the taking on the Oxford area, while David and Deborah Porter are to operate the Guildford & Woking franchise following the completion of the Caremark franchisee training course.
New franchisees cannot prepare to launch their businesses without first successfully passing all aspects of the course, which tests a candidate’s knowledge of the industry, the Caremark system and their understanding of business growth and development.
Mazumdar commented: “The training was fantastic! There was so much to take in and the fact that I was able to take it all in is testament to how well the training has gone.
"My immediate plans now are to utilise my regional support manager, who has already given me so much advice, to help me get the ball rolling.”
The Porters said: “It has been quite an intensive course, but really good and very enjoyable. We are now going forward feeling confident in what we have learned and how to apply it in our business – in fact, we are ready and raring to go!”
The Caremark franchisees will be joining a network of nationwide offices, who currently deliver care and support services to adults, young people and children in need, enabling them to remain living independently at home. Following completion of their training, the franchisees will be busy preparing their new offices whilst going through the process of registration with the Care Quality Commission, without which they cannot trade.
