Costs of starting a home care franchise

Starting a home health care business can be very rewarding

Health care franchising is on the rise and the statistics prove it. According to FRANdata reports, there were just 13 home-health franchise brands in 2000 which have now become 56 companies with 45 franchise brands operating in 6,000 locations. With a low investment that yields high revenue due to growing demand, owning a home-health care franchise is highly desirable.
