Home Care Franchise Owners Ted Cooley & Debbie Morris Recognized for Outstanding Contributions to Franchising

(PRWEB) November 06, 2013 - Home Helpers franchise owners Ted Cooley and Debbie Morris of Hilton Head Island, SC, were honored as the International Franchise Association’s 2013 Franchisee of the Year during the 14th Annual Public Affairs Conference on Sept. 16 in Washington, D.C.

"The franchising community is an important part the U.S. economy due to the hard work of franchisees," said IFA Chairman Steve Romaniello, managing director, Roark Capital Group. "The IFA is proud to recognize the outstanding efforts of Ted and Debbie with the Franchisee of the Year Award and thank them not only for their work to promote franchising, but for the contributions they make every day to showcase how local business owners propel the economy in communities across the country."

"We are truly honored to receive this prestigious award," Debbie said. "Being a part of the Home Helpers family has allowed us to make a difference in the lives of so many people – from our clients and their loved ones to that of our employees. We’re very fortunate to be in a position to help people live happier, healthier lives in the comfort of home surrounded by family and friends."

Home Helpers specializes in comprehensive home health care and companionship for seniors, new and expectant mothers, and individuals requiring recuperative and continuing care. Its services range from providing companionship and personal care to grocery shopping and medication reminders. Home Helpers is affiliated with Direct Link, a national provider of medical alert systems, including emergency response systems, automated medication dispensers and vital signs monitoring units.

"Ted and Debbie have been a part of Home Helpers for more than eight years, and they are truly deserving of this award," said Emma Dickison, president of Home Helpers and Direct Link. "They embody the dedication, leadership and entrepreneurial vision it takes to be successful in the home care industry."

The Franchisee of the Year Award is a major component of the IFA’s Public Affairs Conference, which brings more than 400 franchise business leaders together in Washington, D.C. to carry the key messages of franchising to lawmakers on Capitol Hill. During the two-day event held on Sept. 16-17, franchise industry leaders will meet with more than 200 congressional offices about issues important to the future of franchising such as tax certainty, healthcare reform immigration and access to credit.

According to a study conducted for the IFA Educational Foundation by PricewaterhouseCoopers on the economic impact of franchising, there are more than 825,000 franchised businesses in operation across the country, which is indirectly responsible for providing 18 million jobs and generating $2.1 trillion in economic output.
