November 29, 2016 // Franchising.com // CINCINNATI - FirstLight Home Care, a national provider of non-medical home care, was recently named as one of the top franchise systems in the U.S. for veterans by Franchise Business Review. Rankings of franchises are based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance.
FirstLight Home Care was among 158 franchise brands, representing more than 22,000 franchise owners that participated in Franchise Business Review's research. Of the franchisee participants, approximately 2,500 are veterans. FirstLight Home Care franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.
"FirstLight Home Care franchisees are passionate and caring and strive to provide exceptional service," said Jeff Bevis, FirstLight Home Care CEO. "Our veterans exhibit the passion and discipline that make them great leaders and owners, and we are grateful to have veterans as part of our network."
FirstLight Home Care distinguishes itself from other industry brands by offering assistance to a wide demographic of adults in need. The company assists seniors, new mothers, veterans, adults with disabilities, and those recovering from illness, injury or surgery, who need help on short term or long term basis.
"Many franchisors are recruiting veterans because they realize that military experience, in addition to fostering traits including integrity, honor, and commitment, imparts many skills that successful franchise owners have," says Eric Stites, who is CEO of Franchise Business Review and was a First Class Petty Officer with the U.S. Navy. "Since the number of franchise options can be overwhelming, it's important to look closely at what veterans who are in franchising say about their experience."
In addition to being ranked on the Top Franchise for Veterans from Franchise Business Review, FirstLight Home Care also earned a spot on Franchise Times Top 200+ list, 2016 Inc. 5000 ranking and was honored at number 21 for all private businesses based in the Cincinnati metro area.
