Experienced franchisee Amarjit Gill has made the transition into retirement after realising the financial benefits of the time and money he invested in his last business venture.
Amarjit and his wife Sharon spent about 14 years at the helm of Redditch & Bromsgrove Caremark and – although he had previously owned other franchises – it is clear that they were passionate about running a venture providing domiciliary care. Amarjit said it gave them great satisfaction.
They were also thrilled to receive a “good” report from the local Care Commissioning Group in Autumn 2019.
At the time of his retirement, Amarjit and his wife employed a team of 50 employees, who provided support for clients with varying needs, giving an indication of how active this business was at the point of sale.
Caremark staff not only visit elderly and other vulnerable people in their homes, but their support services also extend to 24-hour live-in care for people suffering from dementia, mental health issues and learning disabilities, where this is requested.
“It was hard work, but it was also very rewarding and satisfying. We loved making a difference to people’s lives and I believe you get what you put into your business. It took us nearly ten months to sell, but we were satisfied with the outcome,” said Amarjit.
Franchise Resales Ltd Director Dave Williams said: “I was pleased to play my part in the sale of Amarjit and Sharon’s business which has now enabled Amarjit to retire.
“Caremark is a fantastic franchise and the new owners have purchased a very well-run business which I am sure they will continue to grow.
“Already a growing sector, supported by an aging population, Domiciliary Care has seen further growth since the start of the Pandemic with more people becoming aware of the help and support available.”
