October 24, 2017 // Franchising.com // CINCINNATI - FirstLight Home Care, a leading national provider of non-medical home care, was ranked by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the top franchises for veterans. FirstLight was ranked at No. 51 of 150 companies evaluated based on veteran incentives, support of veteran franchisees, and its ranking in the 2017 Franchise 500.
“Veterans deserve distinct treatment and opportunities after serving their country,” said Jeff Bevis, CEO of FirstLight Home Care. “It can be difficult for veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces to move on to careers beyond the military. However, the senior care industry continues to grow every year and we believe having the skills and life experiences that veterans have are a tremendous advantage in this dynamic business environment. FirstLight is actively working towards making it easier for veterans and their spouses to become franchise owners, or to get employed, and we are honored to be recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine for our efforts.”
As part of its support for all U.S. military veterans, FirstLight offers a franchise fee discount of $10,000 for veterans. Bevis also serves as vice chair of the International Franchise Association’s VetFran committee to help provide access and opportunities in both employment and franchising for veterans and their spouses. FirstLight regularly attends and presents at regional and national events created to assist transitioning veterans to highlight opportunities that exist within the franchise industry for veterans and their spouses.
In addition to Entrepreneur Magazine’s prestigious ranking, Franchise Business Review ranked FirstLight as a Top Franchise for Veterans. The company also received the highest ranking from the IFA’s VetFran committee based on veteran discount, clean audit reports, and the history and size of the business.
Other prestigious awards that FirstLight recently received include a ranking on Franchise Times’ Top 200+ list for the fifth year in a row, a ranking on Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000 list for the third year in a row, and a ranking on Entrepreneur's 2017 Franchise 500 list.
