Acting on behalf of the owners of Ilium Limited which operated the established Bluebird Care franchise in the London suburbs of Richmond and Twickenham, Bespoke Care are pleased to announce a sale has just been concluded. 

The domiciliary care franchise had been owned and operated by David Mitchell and Maria Leonard for over 12 years. As a shareholder of Ilium Limited David Mitchell commented “Maria and I have thoroughly enjoyed developing the franchise over the years, but the time came to sell and we were pleased to have been introduced to Anita Allen at Bespoke Care. 

Anita has guided us throughout the sales process and has been available at any time to assist. Her understanding of the care sector is, in my view, second to none. Selling a care business is not easy as it requires sensitivity around staffing and service users. We have a strong team within Ilium Limited and a record of delivering high quality services in the community. We wish the new owners well as they further develop the franchise in this fabulous location.” 

The business has been acquired by a new joint venture of 2 existing Bluebird Care franchisees – Peter Slough and Tim Rowland-Jones. Anita Allen commented “Each healthcare transaction is different, and we adapt to make the sales process go as smoothly as possible for all parties involved. We wish David and Maria a happy retirement.” March 2021
