Nurse Next Door Home Care Franchise Makes Entrepreneur Magazine's Franchise 500 List

Prestigious Ranking in Nurse Next Door Home Care Franchise Makes Entrepreneur Magazine's List of Best Franchises for 2015

VANCOUVER, BC - (Marketwired - Feb 27, 2015) - The Nurse Next Door home care franchise has made Entrepreneur magazine's ranking of top franchise opportunities for 2015. Among the magazine's annual listings, Nurse Next Door jumped 22 spots on the magazine's prestigious Franchise 500 list, from 348 up to 326.

Entrepreneur has been producing the ranking for 36 years, and it provides an objective listing of the industry's best and most stable franchise systems. "All companies, regardless of size, are judged by the same criteria: objective, quantifiable measures of the franchise operation," Entrepreneur said on its website. "The most important factors include financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system. We also consider the number of years a company has been in business and the length of time it has been franchising, startup costs, litigation, percentage of terminations and whether the company provides financing."

Nurse Next Door co-founder Jon DeHart says he's happy to receive yet another award for excellence but is most proud about creating a sea change in senior care and creating a culture for his caregivers and franchisees.

"Recognition is always great, but awards just serve to remind us of why we are here," DeHart said. "Nurse Next Door was developed around one basic idea, to makes the lives of seniors better by helping them reconnect with the things that used to make them happy. The fact that we make our caregivers happy along the way and provide for our franchisees is also pretty fantastic."

It's easy to see how Nurse Next Door earned high scores. Nurse Next Door has been stable and growing since 2001 when founders DeHart and Ken Sim started the groundbreaking company based on struggles with home care for their own families.

Why Nurse Next Door stands out among home care franchises

Here are a few reasons why Nurse Next Door is performing so well.

Nurse Next Door is implementing a sea change in senior care by reversing the negativity around getting older with their "happier aging" protocol. The company tailors a senior's care beginning with their "Caring Consult" -- not only do they manage clinical needs, they employ a forward-thinking, holistic approach.

The company's branding is well thought out, from cheerful pink cars and uniforms to skilled caregivers. It makes Nurse Next Door the largest, and most recognizable senior home care company in Canada. It is growing rapidly in the U.S., with 40+ franchises having signed on in the past two years. Their approach to senior home care has been recognized by such national media outlets as The New York Times, Entrepreneur and Fox & Friends.
