If you want a safer investment, consider a franchise. Smallbizgenius says, “Franchising is the perfect recipe for growth.” Franchises offer a proven methodology and an established brand which takes some of the risk out of starting a new business.  

Today, there are more than 750,000 franchises in the United States that employ over eight million people. While the numbers vary from about $50,000 to $200,000 in annual profits, the average franchise owner takes home up to $125,000 per location on average. While most franchises are food-related, there are a few other lucrative categories of these proven businesses.  

One type of franchise is in the service industry. I4 Search Group is a recruiting firm focusing on staffing medical professionals in the healthcare field. We offer a franchising business that provides a much-needed service to healthcare organizations seeking clinical and administrative talent.

Why Franchising with i4 Search Group? 

A franchise with i4 Search Group is the perfect storm: 

  • Franchising offers a lucrative way to eliminate the risk of starting a new business and being your own boss. 
  • Staffing is a kind of “recession-proof” business—employers always need great talent. 
  • Healthcare is in the thick of a terrible talent shortage, so the job market is incredibly hot. 

Franchising serves as less risky alternative to starting your own business. Entrepreneur lists some of the advantages of launching a franchise: 

  • Your brand is established. Instead of worrying about how to build a brand and whether that brand is innovative enough to survive competitive markets, you can focus on building the business.  
  • You potentially have more access to capital because you are launching from an established brand instead of starting something from scratch. Instead of proving a concept to an investor or a bank, you’re sharing real numbers from a real, established business model. 
  • You already have a motivated staff—you. Instead of searching for solid unit managers to run the business, you are the owner and supervisor of the franchise. A franchisee has skin in the game from day one. 
  • More profit, faster is the number one reason to launch a franchise. You don’t waste time searching for the best workflows or the best systems to make your business profitable. We’ve already covered that ground and can teach you how to be successful in the business. Your job is to focus like a laser on production and profit. 

But why healthcare and why recruiting? 

The U.S. staffing industry is booming. According to Statista, the global staffing industry generated $497 billion U.S. dollars in 2019. In the U.S. alone, temporary and contract employment totaled $16 billion. The American Staffing Association reports more than three million temporary and contract employees work for U.S. recruiting firms each week. Each of those employees generates revenues for their staffing employer in a recurring revenue stream that is as lucrative as it is in-demand.  

The healthcare field is particularly in need of these services. Healthcare organizations from medical practices to hospitals, testing labs, and other ancillaries are struggling to find the qualified help they need. The demand for healthcare talent is at an all-time high, and; you are there to fill it. 

Temporary contract staffing is a huge profit center within the medical staffing industry. It provides steady, recurring revenue streams for healthcare recruiting firms. Permanent placement is even more lucrative, with most healthcare facilities willing to pay big money for top talent.  
As it becomes more and more difficult to find qualified talent, an increasing number of healthcare organizations are seeking the help of staffing agencies like i4 Search Group. Recruiting in the healthcare field offers not only an unprecedented number of positions available, but increasing demand for clinical and administrative providers in skilled nursing, allied health, advanced practice, physician, administration, leadership—and so much more.
