(PRWEB) April 14, 2015 - Senior Helpers®, one of the nation’s largest in-home senior care franchised businesses, announced today that the greater Philadelphia and Southern/Central New Jersey area Senior Helpers businesses were honored with the Multi-Unit Franchisee MVP Award for Innovation. Multi-Unit Franchisee Magazine, the leading publication for business owners that own multiple franchise locations, bestowed the award.
Kevin Herman, owner and operator of the greater Philadelphia and Southern/Central New Jersey Senior Helpers locations, received the award due to his work in expanding the Senior Helpers service that provides caregivers to local assisted living facilities to support existing staff with resident overflow and other work. The program became so successful that Senior Helpers is working on implementing it across the country. The Multi-Unit Franchisee MVP Award for Innovation recognizes leaders who have implemented new innovations that separate their brands from the competition.
“We are delighted that such a significant part of our franchise network received such a prestigious award,” said Senior Helpers President Craig Leonard. “Kevin and his team work tirelessly to help the senior citizens of Philadelphia, whether they reside in their homes or in assisted living facilities. This award is for a job well done!”
“We are very honored to be recognized with this award,” said Herman. “This award is really for our whole team. Everyday our team works to make sure clients and their families have someone there to help the person they love, no matter where that is.”
Multi-Unit Franchisee Magazine received over 100 nominations this year from across the nation and from all industry sectors. The MVP Awards were presented at the 14th annual Multi-Unit Franchising Conference in Las Vegas at Caesars Palace on April 8-10.
