Yes, as the Right At Home Development Coordinator I manage contracts with the sales department and franchise brokers.
The International Franchise Association is reporting that there is a disproportionate number of female franchisees, not only in healthcare franchises, but in all franchises. When researching women and entrepreneurship, we found networking is a key tool for women that is often overlooked. What has been your observation regarding Right At Home female franchisees and networking?
An interesting fact is that one of our female sales people owned a HoneyBaked Ham franchise. This lady has a tremendous amount of experience in franchising and sales. When speaking with her she always references the fact that networking has been a critical tool in her sales success. When she is looking to sell Right At Home franchise opportunities to potential buyers, developing great relationships with those potential franchisees has proven of great value.
