FirstLight HomeCare Named Top Franchise Choice for Veterans

Veterans own one in seven franchise businesses in the U.S. making franchises a good option after service.

December 01, 2015 // // CINCINNATI - FirstLight HomeCare, an award-winning non-medical home care franchise business, was recently chosen as a Top 100 Franchise Business for Veterans by Franchise Business Review magazine. This is the fifth year the publication has named the top franchise brands that offer the best entrepreneurial opportunities for U.S. military veterans.

"FirstLight HomeCare is so proud to have been named a Top 100 Franchise Business for Veterans in 2015," said Bill McPherson, FirstLight HomeCare executive director of franchise development. "We believe our military veterans are a perfect match with the objectives of FirstLight."

McPherson added, "These individuals have a wealth of skills and experiences as both leaders and team members – and the willingness to give their all for what they believe in. A home health care franchise is a perfect fit for many returning veterans."

According to the International Franchise Association's VetFran Initiative, there are more than 66,000 veteran-owned franchises, accounting for one in seven franchises in the U.S. These franchises provide 815,000 jobs for Americans and account for more than $41 billion toward the U.S. GDP.

FirstLight HomeCare franchises are popular among veterans for many reasons, including the ease with which they can start their own business in the non-medical home health care field. FirstLight's extensive training programs for both owners and their home care employees includes 55 hours of online training and eight full days at the Cincinnati headquarters. FirstLight HomeCare also offers ongoing support from the home office staff, owner surveys and feedback mechanisms, dedicated state-of-the-art technology and back of office systems and marketing assistance.

"With FirstLight, franchisees benefit from a low start-up cost, exclusive protected territories, and the best training in the industry," said McPherson. "We started FirstLight in 2010, and were recently honored to be named as an Entrepreneur Magazine Top 500 franchise. We have positioned our business to offer the best possible opportunity for people with the desire to run a successful home care business and make a difference at the same time."
