A healthy business model


Healthcare advocate, Bio-Rite, offi cially launches as a franchise


INVESTMENT LEVEL: FROM £9,000


Bio-Rite’s products and services include:


• A community care equipment decontamination service that treats over 250,000 items of healthcare equipment each year. This takes place from our facility in Alton, Hampshire. This facility has been awarded an ISO9001 accreditation.


• A Hydrogen Peroxide Decontamination Chamber. This is able to decontaminate a range of community care medical equipment as well as hospital beds and mattresses.


• An outsourced area decontamination service. With this service, the team visits hospitals and care homes and uses its innovative Hydrogen Peroxide Vapour (HPV) technology to decontaminate areas that are infected or are prone to infection. This service was developed for and proven in over 40 NHS hospitals across the UK.


T


he healthcare decontamination sector has seen rapid growth in recent years. Challenges faced by healthcare providers are only set to continue as


they struggle to cope with the increasing threat from infections such as MRSA, C.Diffi cile or Norovirus. As a group, Bio-Rite has more than 40 years experience in infection control, providing tailored services to the NHS, local authorities, care and nursing homes. As well as area decontamination, it provides equipment recycling which enables beds and mobility apparatus to be decontaminated safely and eff ectively. Bio-Rite also supplies a mattress decontamination service that meets the needs of NHS hospitals, private clinics and nursing homes, and complies with all infection-control guidelines. This year, Bio-Rite has offi cially launched as a franchise. As a provisional member of the British Franchise Association (bfa), Bio-Rite’s quality service and standards can now be off ered by a select group of franchisees in strategic locations throughout the UK. Alan Wright, managing director at Bio-Rite, explained: “For the past year,


The Bio-Rite franchise licence fee is £9,000 plus vat and provides franchisees with: a seven year renewable licence to operate as a Bio-Rite franchisee; exclusive territory; operations manual (on loan); representation on the main Bio-Rite website; franchisee training, as well as Infection protection Society (IPS) year one membership.


In addition to the franchise licence fee, franchisees purchase the franchise set-up package from Bio-Rite head offi ce which includes: equipment and machinery; premises fi t-out, signage, offi ce furniture, offi ce IT equipment, phones, stationery and branded material, vehicle deposit and livery, Initial branded uniform and initial marketing launch campaign.


from our ISO9001 accredited facility and offi ces in Alton, Hampshire, we have been meticulously preparing to expand and replicate our established, successful business model through franchising. People immediately recognise this is a genuine business opportunity with a ready customer base, with real needs. “We believe the candidates who will become successful Bio-Rite franchisees will be self-motivated and get on well with people. Ideally they will have management and sales experience. However, as full training and help with set-up will be provided, the franchise could be suitable for anyone with a broad background in business and who is determined, prepared to work hard and has enough enthusiasm to succeed.”


The franchise set-up package will vary depending on the size of each premise and the facilities already in place. This is estimated to be in the region of £11,000 plus vat.


The Bio-Rite franchise has been


pre-approved for up to 60 per cent lending by the leading UK franchise banks. It is recommended that £10,000 working capital is also available for the fi rst year of trading.
