From Accountancy and Insurance to Care Franchising: The Inspiring Journey of Two Brothers

Sylvian Care

In 2021, the International & British Franchise Show at NEC Birmingham was abuzz with businesses looking for promising franchisees. Amidst the bustling event were two brothers, Paul and Danny. In many ways, they were just like so many others who were interested in joining a franchise – they wanted to build their own successful and rewarding business. However, the brothers stood out from the crowd in that they wanted a new career which was completely different from anything they had experienced before.

They found it with Sylvian Care.

Even though the Sylvian Care franchise has proven appealing to people from all walks of life, the brothers didn’t fit the typical profile of those interested in a care franchise, coming from backgrounds in accountancy and insurance. However, the Sylvian Care franchise stand at the show inspired them to take their first steps towards something new and wonderful. 

Paul, an experienced accountant who once worked in procurement for McLaren, and Danny, who hails from the insurance sector, were deeply touched by Sylvian Care’s commitment to providing relationship-centric care, one that focussed on building genuine connections with clients. It resonated with their own vision of making a difference in their local community, and to their own lives.

Following their instincts, they opened Sylvian Care Woking franchise, and obtained registration with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in June 2022. What followed was a remarkable journey of commitment, compassion, and entrepreneurial spirit.

Sylvian Care franchisees can expect rapid progress following the franchise’s proven business model, but Paul and Danny’s success exceeded even their own high expectations. In just 7 months of trading, they managed to achieve break even on their investment. They currently support 18 clients, providing them with the care and compassion they need to lead fulfilling lives at home. Their projected turnover for the second year is an impressive £500,000.

While the numbers are remarkable, they only tell a part of the story, of course. The real triumph lies in the difference they are making in the lives of their clients and their families, embodying Sylvian Care’s vision of providing a nurturing, supportive environment for the elderly. Paul and Danny have not only succeeded in creating a new future which is financially lucrative, but also one which is deeply, personally rewarding, too.

Are you inspired by Paul and Danny’s journey? Do you feel a calling to make a difference in your community while running a profitable business?
