Training and Support to Support Your Success
With the right tools and a strong commitment, you can build a successful Comfort Keepers franchise. We offer impactful training and coaching — and guidance for creating a solid business plan.
Comprehensive Training to Help You Succeed
From the start, Comfort Keepers provides new franchisees comprehensive training in all aspects of management and operations including spending time in an active Comfort Keepers office observing operations. We’ll teach you hands-on techniques for running and developing a successful Comfort Keepers business with our comprehensive training curriculum that’s led by a Business Coach. However, learning and growing doesn’t have to stop with this initial first step. We equip new franchisees with a wealth of resources to help them steadily build and improve their business.
The Five Phases of Comfort Keepers’ New Franchisee Training Program
To arm our future franchisees with the tools and confidence they need to flourish, we crafted a thorough five-phase onboarding process.
Explore: Curious about Comfort Keepers? Prior to committing, we grant prospective team members the opportunity to meet our specialists, ranging from marketing experts to representatives of the nursing staff. Joined by no more than a handful of other prospects, you can ask as many questions as you’d like to discern whether Comfort Keepers is the right organization for you.
Engage: Once you decide that you want to own a Comfort Keepers franchise, your learning begins! We’ll connect you with your Regional Director, as well as give you insights into creating a business plan.
Experience: At this phase, your professional growth truly accelerates! Participants come to California for 4+ days of various training programs. The finest minds at Comfort Keepers host sessions designed to provide the keys to success, such as:
- Creating and executing a marketing plan
- Conveying what makes Comfort Keepers unique
- Proper utilization of sales tools
- Recruiting, hiring, and training skilled caregivers
- Teaching caregivers to execute proper etiquette in the home, as well as how to conduct safety assessments
- Scheduling techniques
- IT systems
What’s more, new franchisees can network with colleagues in order to forge friendships and join a supportive community.
Execute: Following the on-site training, new franchise owners will transition to receiving one-on-one coaching from their Regional Director. It’s natural that new questions would arise as you dive deeper into the materials and put concepts into practice, so our Regional Directors are readily available to help you navigate the first few months of operations.
Excel: In addition to regular conversations with the Regional Directors, franchisees will have the opportunity to join a Performance Management Group (PMG Group). This is a peer-supported quarterly mastermind meeting designed to afford you the ability to review your business with your peers and take away best practices and tips from other successful Comfort Keepers owners.
Additional ongoing support options include access to our Business Support Center, networking events, annual conferences, business development training, and area meetings. Learn more about the opportunities we offer to seasoned franchisees!
Remember, at all phases of your Comfort Keepers journey, you’re never alone. You don’t have to have all of the answers from the start. We’ll be there with you along the way, allowing you to concentrate on growing your business and serving your community.
