In Home Care (UK) Targets UK and International Expansion

A home care business headquartered in Hampshire has shared its plans to double its UK franchise network this year and expand internationally.

In Home Care launched its franchise business in 2019 and has since sold seven franchises covering areas of West Sussex, Hertfordshire, Surrey and Essex.

This year will see the company open a further two branches in Essex and expand into three London boroughs – Barnet, Harrow and Enfield.

In Home Care is also close to completing a signing for a franchise in Dublin, with the aim to have an office open at the end of March, as well as another branch in Hemel Hempstead.

Co-founder Claire Simmons (pictured) said: “We’re expecting to sell about another six franchises this coming year and we’re already speaking to another two potential business owners at the moment, and you never know where that will lead.”

The provider has also received enquiries from potential franchisees looking to grow the brand abroad.

“People seem to want to buy British and we’ve seen enquiries come in from Dubai, Spain, Australia, America and of course Ireland, so we’re really excited about the growth of the business and where it could take us,” said Simmons.
