About the social enterprises
The Raw Carrot is a social enterprise in Ontario with several franchise locations which primarily sell soups. For their social impact, they provide meaningful employment and livelihood security to individuals on social assistance who want to work. The Raw Carrot has a headquarters in Paris, Ontario which generates revenue through the franchise model. The headquarters supports each of the franchise locations with bulk buying, shared learnings, best practices, consulting, and other custom supports.
Just Like Family Home Care is a national social enterprise providing in-home healthcare for seniors through franchise locations across Canada. In 2022, Just Like Family came under new management through a partnership of impact investors, including 51% ownership by charities. This social acquisition is the first of its kind in Canada. The majority of profits generated by Just Like Family go directly to charitable organizations, helping them make a bigger impact.
