Ken has a wealth of experience in franchising, the care sector and business, and has received a number of prestigious awards throughout his career.
An Economics graduate from the University of Leeds, he is a qualified Chartered Accountant who enjoyed a highly successful career within a FTSE Top 30 multi-national. Ken also holds an NVQ Level 4 in Social Care.
His expertise in franchising has grown from 11 highly successful years as a McDonald’s franchisee, from 1994 to 2005, during which time Ken won the McDonalds Golden Arches Award for Outstanding International Franchisees and the ultimate British franchisee accolade – The British Franchise Association (BFA) Franchisee of the Year 2002.
Having run a successful care home since 2006, Ken then sought the opportunity to link his unique care, franchising and business experience together and became UK Master Licence Holder for Right at Home International in 2009. Ken is an advocate of ethical Franchising. He sits on the board of the British Franchise Association and their Compliance and Standards Committee.
“I opened Right at Home (Preston) in 2010, as the first in a growing network of offices across the UK. Since then we have grown considerably, both in size and in reputation and I am very proud of the great work the care team has achieved to establish the business as a leading provider of quality care.
“The cornerstones of our ethos at Right at Home are the quality and reliability of our care and the relationships we build with our Clients.
“The care and support we provide is based around your choices – so you decide the timing and you agree every aspect of your care plan before we begin.
“We use consistent CareGivers, introducing them first to make sure you’re comfortable with them. At Right at Home we don’t believe quality care can be delivered in short visits, therefore our minimum visit is ideally 60 minutes. This allows us to deliver care with dignity and to go the extra mile to enhance our Clients’ quality of life.”
