Visiting Angels Franchise Opportunities in North Carolina
There are many advantages to buying a franchise in North Carolina rather than starting a new business on your own. With the best franchise opportunities, you’ll have the ongoing support of a successful company — plus a clear process to follow as you grow your business.
We often discuss the benefits of franchising, particularly in the home care sector. Families in North Carolina who are seeking in-home care need a company they can trust. By tapping into the brand recognition for a franchise like Visiting Angels®, you can gain a significant advantage over unknown care providers.
The population of North Carolina — like the rest of the country — is aging rapidly. According to a 2018 report from the state’s Department of Health and Human Services, it ranked ninth place nationally for total population and the population aged 65 and older.
Based on the state government’s projections, one fifth of North Carolinians will move into this age bracket by 2025. The elderly population is poised to grow by 61% within the next 20 years. As of 2019, residents over the age of 60 already outnumbered those aged 18 and under.
These figures reveal a vast market for senior care, with all signs indicating a rapid increase in demand over time. In this post, we’ll delve into some exciting franchise opportunities in the Tar Heel State.
