You can sell the business at any time during the initial term or subsequent renewal periods of the agreement. However, the business must be sold to an operator that is approved by Just Better Care Australia and the new owners must agree to the conditions of the then current Franchise Agreement.
It is important franchisees have sufficient funds to cover office set up, operating costs and sales and business development activities until such time as they have grown revenue to a satisfactory level to support their ongoing business operations. In some cases franchises reach financial breakeven relatively quickly, although in other cases this can take much longer. Many factors impact on the time it takes a new business to grow and build up its customer base. We generally see Just Better Care franchisees entering the system with working capital to fund business activities for a period of approximately 1-2 years from commencement, circa $65,000 – $165,000 + GST, however advice should be sought from your accountant and or business advisors regarding the amount of working capital you will require, as this will vary based on multiple factors including office rental, trading terms, debtor control, wages, revenue growth, expenses, ability to attract customers and a franchisees own personnel requirements.
When you begin your business, your role will include promoting and marketing Just Better Care services in your territory, recruiting staff and administrative work.

This will probably be your biggest question, and we can’t blame you. However, because every town and every owner is different, we’ll never be able to tell you how much money you can make. Your earnings potential and your level of gross income will depend on a range of factors including the effort and energy you put into your business. While we cannot provide projected earnings for you, we do provide establishment and operating cost averages along with benchmarked financial information from our existing franchise network that you can use to do your own projections and set earnings targets to support your circumstances. Whilst we will provide as much information as we can under the provisions of the Franchising Code, we strongly recommend that you also seek advice from an independent financial advisor.
