Own a Home Care Business in Texas
Interested in owning your own business in Texas? Starting a new venture can be risky, especially if you pick the wrong field. Buying a home care business is an appealing option for any aspiring business owners. Not only is this a profitable industry with a rapidly expanding market, but it can also be life-changing for the clients that you’ll serve.
Texas is an attractive place to start a home care business thanks to its vast population and its business-friendly tax policies. It has the second largest population of any state in the union, with 28,995,881 residents per the last U.S. census. Its population has grown by 15.3% since 2010 and shows no sign of slowing down.
According to the census, just under 13% of Texas residents are 65 years or older, which indicates a significant market for home care services. Read on to find out about our available franchising options in this formidable state.
Our Home Care Business Opportunities in Texas
At Visiting Angels®, we have several home care business opportunities across the Lone Star State, including resale options and new territories.
As we’ve covered in a piece about the pros and cons of resale franchises, buying an existing territory means you’ll inherit the staff, processes, and existing client base established by the previous owner.
Our resale opportunities in Texas include franchises in the following cities:
Houston is the largest city in Texas. Of the reported 2,320,268 people who call this metropolis home, 10.5% were 65 or older as of last year. This existing territory also covers Dickinson, Pasadena, Kemah, Deer Park, Friendswood, League City, Webster, Pearland, and Seabrook.
- San Antonio
San Antonio is another massive market. Between the 2010 and 2019 census, the city grew by 16.7% to a total of 1,547,253 residents. Its elderly population accounts for 12% of that figure. This location also serves neighboring Helotes.
- Missouri City
This city has a significantly smaller population of 75,457 based on the last census, but a greater percentage of elderly residents at 13.5%. Since 2010, its population has increased by approximately 13% as well. This location also serves Stafford and parts of Houston.
When you buy a home care business in a new territory, you have the freedom to set up your own processes and hire your own staff. You’ll also have to build your own client base — with ample support from the Visiting Angels corporate team.
