Starting A Franchise with Comfort Keepers

Getting Started

  1. Introduction to Comfort Keepers

    During this initial phone call, you will learn about the senior care franchise industry, our company, and your role as a franchise owner.

  2. Complete a Qualification Questionnaire

    Before moving forward, you will complete our qualification questionnaire and begin the mutual evaluation process. Your information is confidential and will not be shared.

  3. Support Discussion

    Your franchise development specialist will have an in-depth discussion with you about the support you will receive as a Comfort Keepers franchise owner.  This discussion will cover our field-based coaching program, advertising and marketing, the role of the franchise support center, software, and licensure.

  4. Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD)

    The Federal Trade Commission requires franchisors to provide a disclosure document.  This document includes important information about your investment, along with a copy of the current franchise agreement.  Review this document carefully.  Your Franchise Development Consultant will schedule a follow-up call with you to answer questions.

  5. Franchisee Calls

    At this point in the process, you should feel prepared to speak with our existing franchisees regarding their experience with Comfort Keepers. Schedule calls with existing franchise owners to ask questions and learn more about their experience.

  6. Meet the Team

    You will spend a day in our Franchise Support Center with the opportunity to meet and interact with our staff. This is the final step in the mutual evaluation process.

  7. Agreement Signing Day

    Upon signing your franchise agreement, you will be introduced to your new franchisee business coach.

  8. Training

    Our new franchise owner training runs for five weeks. The program includes four weeks of coach-led webinars and online training plus one week at our Franchise Support Center. Prior to opening, you will also spend time in an active Comfort Keepers office to observe daily operations.

  9. Opening Day

    Congratulations! It is now time to begin your journey as a franchise owner with Comfort Keepers. Remember, you are starting a business for yourself, but not by yourself.
