Considering a Care, Retail or Home Services franchise?
Take a look at the proven Ableworld business model…
Ableworld is one of the country's largest mobility and homecare retailers, selling products and services for the elderly and disabled. The mobility-related market is one of the fastest growing sectors in retail and demand for Ableworld's products is increasing as the population ages and lives longer.
Growing market, growing demand
Our aging population need mobility support, from small regular purchases through to larger items including frames, scooters and stairlifts. It’s a vast and growing sector with Ableworld the clear market leader.
Fewer employees, fewer headaches!
Start with a team of 3 and build up to 8-10 loyal employees. Ableworld benefits from the same market as the many care franchises, but doesn’t need 100+ employees per territory, or suffer from shortages and high staff turnover.
Choose your role
Love chatting to customers? Employ an operations manager. Prefer being hands-on? Employ a store manager and handle the operations. Many franchisees create family businesses with partners, siblings and children.
Successful franchisees come from a wide range of backgrounds
You don’t need any prior experience in the sector - successful Ableworld franchisees have come from a diverse range of backgrounds – and share a desire to build their own business helping people in their local area, while making a healthy living and growing an asset to sell in the future.

“The Ableworld franchise appealed to us because it would help people who were finding life hard. Friends had told us how difficult it was to get hold of suitable equipment to help their parents.”

Assessment-based sales of tangible mobility products from small to large purchases – regular repeat custom enabling lifelong relationships
Mobility equipment needs maintenance and servicing, providing a recurring income and loyal customers for life.
A lucrative income stream: your engineers install and setup customers’ stairlifts, from temporary rentals to permanent installations.
We are unique as established franchisors having our network of successful superstores and associated mobile engineers. This enables our loyal head office team to continually test and improve the Ableworld offering in our stores, before rolling out proven refinements to franchisees.
This means our head office team is empathetic with their support for you as a franchisee, providing guidance based on real-life experience at every stage of your business journey. This isn’t common, many franchisors employ managers to deliver theory without the depth of experience.
An example of the depth of our support is offering an interim manager to enable franchisees to take a proper holiday when establishing their business in the early years. We don’t know of any other franchisors offering this without charging extra!
