‘My start-up has had rollercoaster moments – the ultimate high comes from making a real difference to our clients’ lives’
Matt Gillie opened Right at Home’s 36th franchise office in Hereford in April and is working hard to build...
“Before bringing Right at Home to the UK I enjoyed a very successful career in franchising with McDonalds. I won the Golden Arches award which goes to the top 30 franchisees in the world, as well as a Franchisee of the Year award from the British Franchise Association. So I know and understand the aspirations of our franchisees.
“But there was something missing – I wanted to work in a field that gave something back to the community. Initially I bought a care home, then an opportunity arose to put my franchise experience to good use when I found a US home care company who were very professional, really cared about their franchisees and gave great quality care to their clients.
“Right at Home and I shared the same priorities and I developed such faith in their business model that I funded the master license myself when the UK financial crisis made bank borrowing impossible.
“Following a successful pilot our first franchise partner joined us in September 2011. He now has a business turning over £1m and is a great ambassador for the company. Since then we have developed a growing network of over 30 offices – however I would stress our aim is not to be the biggest home care franchise, but rather the most supportive and the best at what we do.”
