Bluebird continues to grow despite the downturn

The Bluebird Care franchise, one of the UK’s fastest growing providers of care at home, has announced that it is set to open 12 new offices during the first few weeks of 2009. Each office will recruit between 40-50 staff, thus creating up to 500 new jobs.

The company has, it says, also received huge interest from people wishing to start their own franchised Bluebird Care business as the economic crisis deepens. Paul Tarsey, MD of Bluebird Care, commented, “People are attracted to franchising because they want to have more control over their destiny, particularly if they have been made redundant. Our franchisees frequently talk about the business being ‘recession resilient’ because the need for care at home just grows and grows.”

Just two years ago, the Hampshire-based company had one office but now has 34 trading across England, Scotland and Ireland and reported a month-on-month growth of 20 per cent last year, despite global recession. According to the information provided, Bluebird Care has grown by 769 per cent over the past 18 months with turnover reaching the £5m mark.

Bluebird Care specialises in working with people requiring health care and their families, alongside Social Services, GPs and Primary Care Trusts. It also offers live-in support for people who would like, or who need, a greater level of care provision. (kbp)
