October 16, 2013 // Franchising.com // San Jose, CA - Virgil and Julie Moore opened California’s first 101 Mobility Franchise. 101 Mobility San Jose will use corporate support, grassroots marketing, and unremitting customer service standards to become Silicon Valley’s number one resource for professionally installed wheelchair ramps, stair lifts, wheelchair lifts, patient lifts, auto lifts, pool lifts, and more.
California may be known as the land of movie stars and tech startups but it is also home to the country’s highest population of people aged 60+ with over 4.3 million seniors (aging.ca.gov).
Along with the rest of the country, San Jose is witnessing a shift in population: the nation’s 78 million baby boomers are reaching retirement age, seniors are living to a new average of 78.6 years, and about 90% of them prefer to age in the comfort of home (uscensus.gov) (worldbank.org) (aarp.org). Enter 101 Mobility: a leading mobility franchisor with 29 franchisees operating in over 70 territories nationwide. Absolutely zero of those territories touched the West Coast – until Virgil and Julie Moore signed on as franchisees.
As San Jose’s innovation hub begins to age, an urgency to find mobility solutions escalates. San Jose Council Member Kansen Chu is pleased to welcome 101 Mobility to San Jose. "We hope 101 Mobility will rise to the challenge of becoming a leading resource for aging and disabled residents,” he said. "Locals can look forward to enjoying improved independence and accessibility here in San Jose."
With Virgil heading up sales and marketing, Julie managing office processes, and service technicians installing equipment, 101 Mobility San Jose plans to become a household name in California. “Customer service is our number one priority – something we see lacking in many businesses today," Virgil explained. "With our commitment to excellent customer service and top quality products, 101 Mobility can become a well-recognized place to go for the type of services the people in San Jose need and deserve."
101 Mobility is a full-service sales, service, and installation provider of a complete line of mobility and accessibility products and equipment, including stair lifts, auto lifts, ramps, porch lifts, patient lifts, power wheelchairs, scooters and more. Short and long-term rentals are also available for home, office, and institution. By working with patients to identify which home health care devices best suit each individual’s needs, 101 Mobility provides an alternative to group homes and rehabilitation centers by increasing accessibility and allowing clients to live self-sufficiently in their homes.
