BRYN MAWR, PA (PRWEB) August 18, 2016 - Visiting Angels, the nation’s leading provider of in-home senior care, is ranked on the 2016 Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment - its independent small businesses.
Visiting Angels is a national franchise with more than 500 locations across the country. Each agency provides personalized in-home care plans for seniors and their families. Services include respite care, friendly companionship, light housekeeping and laundry assistance, medication reminders, meal planning and preparation and assistance running errands.
“We are thrilled to rank among the Inc. 5000 again this year,” said Visiting Angels CEO Larry Meigs. “Our continued growth and our clients’ continued satisfaction is a shining example of our dedication to providing the best care to our nation’s ever-growing senior population. About 8,000 baby boomers turn 65 years old every day. As the senior population continues to skyrocket, the demand for our services increases. We give our franchisees the best corporate support to thrive and expand their businesses.”
The 2016 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about eight percent of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period.
“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts," says Inc. President and Editor-in-Chief Eric Schurenberg. "It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great - usually from scratch. That's one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails."
