January 11, 2018 // Franchising.com // MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. - BrightStar Care, a national private duty home care and medical staffing franchise with more than 300 locations, has opened its newest location in Mt. Laurel, NJ.

After spending 12 years as an accountant, BrightStar Care franchisee Joel Rigueur Jr. wanted to start his own business that would make a difference in the lives of people within his community. Having been involved with the care of his grandmother since 2013, he quickly realized that many other families in the same situation do not have access to the same resources - and knew that the Mt. Laurel community would benefit from having a home care agency that provides high-quality care. Mr. Rigueur brings a passion for service and entrepreneurship to BrightStar Care’s new Mt. Laurel location.
“I was attracted to operating a BrightStar Care agency because it was clear that they truly took time with each client to genuinely understand their personal needs. The brand was the right decision for me and the residents of Mt. Laurel because they sincerely care - not only for their clients, but their continuously growing family of colleagues and caregivers,” said franchisee Joel Rigueur Jr. “I look forward to being part of the BrightStar Care franchise community, and making a positive impact on the lives of seniors and their families across Burlington and Camden County.”
“Joel’s professional experience in accounting and corporate business, coupled with his personal experience caring for family members, make him a natural fit to operate a BrightStar Care,” said Shelly Sun, CEO of BrightStar Care “With his team of compassionate and professional nurses and caregivers, we are confident that Joel will deliver a higher standard of care to Burlington County and the Mt. Laurel senior community.”
