Have you ever heard the term a rising tide lifts all boats?

This was coined by John F Kennedy, and the idea was that investing in economic development benefits everyone who participates in the economy.

But…

This phrase also is applicable to choosing a business in the RIGHT industry. The reality is that some industries are dying. 

Some industries are over-saturated.

Some industries are ripe for massive growth, and those who see the diamond in the rough will benefit greatly.

How does that apply to you?

Whatever industry or business you choose. Try to pick one where the tide is behind you. 

Even if you’re an average entrepreneur and performer, you’ll get an extra “push” from the rising the tide.

With an aging and rising senior care population, that is certainly an industry that fits that bill.

By 2030, 1 in 5 US residents will be over the age 65 and 70% of people who are 65 or older will require long-term care. 

AND…

Franchising in general. 

Franchising as a business segment is exploding. Fragmented businesses and industries are being disrupted by franchising.

So regardless of how you feel about it, franchising is here to stay.

FEATURED RESALE

window-genie

Franchise resales possess many benefits for aspiring business owners - established cash flow, experienced employees, systems in place, and brand awareness to name a few. 

This week, our featured resale comes from Window Genie. A Neighborly brand, Window Genie is a leader in the window cleaning and power washing industry. The franchise was started in 1998, and now has 113 units throughout the country. Franchise owners provide window cleaning, pressure washing, window tinting, gutter cleaning, and holiday lighting services to residential and commercial customers.

Myrtle Beach, SC

  • Asking price of $725,000

  • 2023 Revenue of $824,488

  • Opened since August 2014

  • Owner is retiring

  • Employees and vehicles included in sale

  • Mix of both residential and commercial clients

Franchise Empire’s Take:

  • Myrtle Beach is an attractive market for this type of company/service. There are many hotels and businesses in the area that need these services to maintain the aesthetic look of their buildings.

  • According to the FDD, the average job system-wide in 2023 was $512, with an average number of jobs completed per day of 4.7. Based on some rough math, this location appears to be operating around the average for the entire system, with an opportunity for growth.

They knew they wanted to make a change in their life so they could have more time to spend with their young kids. After searching on Google and YouTube she found Tariq and Franchise Empire. Since joining ZTPF her and her husband have officially become franchisees and highly recommend ZTPF for anyone considering buying a franchise.

Benefits for the Franchisee: 

  • Demand - By 2030, 1 in 5 US residents will be over the age 65 and 70% of people who are 65 or older will require long-term care. This is something that is only growing.

  • Recurring Revenue - Most of your clients will need a caregiver for an extended period of time. This could be weeks to years, allowing you to rely on consistent income every month.

  • Multiple Revenue Streams - you’ll start with non-medical care and will have the option to add on medical care that is more complex and will require certified nurses. Some franchisees have even added care for children as a revenue stream.

  • Option for Semi-Absentee - as long as you have enough liquidity, Homewatchers has a path for the semi-absentee owner who will hire a FT manager to help run the business from day 1.

  • History & Support - Founded in 1980 they have a long established history of running this business and in 2017 was acquired by Authority Brands so now you’ll benefit from the systems/referrals of other franchises.
