Who are we?
Visiting Angels was founded in 1998 by Larry Meigs and Jeffrey Johnson, who established the franchise system on a unique model that grows the relationships between the caregivers, care recipients and family members. This franchise model services seniors' real daily needs.
Today, Visiting Angels is one of the leaders in the industry with over 450 franchisees in the USA.
What do we do?
Visiting Angels is a non-medical care company specialised in personal care and assisting the elderly in activities of daily living to ensure that they have independence wherever they choose to live. These daily tasks range from meal preparation and light housekeeping to bathing and transportation.
What do we offer to our Master franchisees?
As a service-based franchise, our key assets are experience and knowledge. We offer our Master franchisees a complete program of training, manuals and support that will allow for a smooth and quick start-up with focused and steady growth. We have designed a training program second to none at our headquarters in Philadelphia (the Visiting Angels University), in-country training, extranet access, ongoing support via webinars and annual conferences as well as access to all of our marketing materials.
There are very few companies in the world as prepared as we are to give you all the tools you need to be successful.
How do we determine the right candidate?
As the saying goes, “our success is dependent on your success,” so it is important for us to make sure that we have the right partner in any given market.
- As an initial assessment, the candidate must: Have a successful track record in operating multiple offices or locations; as a Master franchisee you will need to be able to work with multiple Visiting Angels offices around your region.
- Financial requirements: The investment level will vary from country to country, but we estimate that a Master franchisee will need a minimum of £250,000 up to £450,000 in order to secure the territory rights, open up their initial units and develop the brand with additional franchisees over the course of the development term.
- Caring: Our business is driven by the desire to assist and help those who cannot fully manage their day to day needs on their own. Most, if not all, of our successful franchisees in the US have this trait and most who do not, have failed.
Once we have established that you meet the initial requirements, we can mutually agree to move forward. We may require you to take an assessment test (from an independent third party) and deliver to us a complete background check report prior to our board of directors making a final determination on awarding you the Master License in your territory.

Visiting Angels has been operating in the US for close to sixteen years with a proven track record for success and we are considered one of the leaders in our industry.
