Interim HealthCare Inc. Named a Top Global Franchise by Entrepreneur Magazine
July 26, 2018 // Franchising.com // SUNRISE, FL - Interim HealthCare Inc., a leading national franchisor of home care, hospice and healthcare staffing, is ranked No. 19 in Entrepreneur magazine’s 2018 Top Global Franchises list. This list recognizes the top 200 franchisors that seek franchisees outside of the U.S., based on data submitted for Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® ranking.
With more than 10,000 baby boomers turning 65 every day in the United States alone, a home care franchise presents a smart investment opportunity for entrepreneurs on both a national and global scale. According to the National Association for Homecare & Hospice, home health is the fastest-growing segment of the healthcare industry.
“By 2030, 71 million Americans - about 20 percent of the population - will be 65 or older, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Combined with the growing number of seniors choosing to age in place and the demand for dependable, high-quality home care services, the home healthcare industry shows no signs of slowing down,” said Larry Kraska, Interim HealthCare Inc. CEO and President. “We are incredibly proud of this global recognition. This honor demonstrates the profound commitment our franchisees and caregivers across Caring Brands International, which includes Interim HealthCare in the U.S., UK-based Bluebird Care and Australia-based Just Better Care, have in providing the highest levels of care within their local communities.”
Entrepreneur’s 2018 Top Global Franchises were determined by adjusting the company’s Franchise 500 formula to give extra weight to international size and growth. Other areas evaluated by the formula include costs and fees, franchisee support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. Interim HealthCare’s position on the ranking shows that it offers an opportunity with worldwide appeal.
“The companies on our Top Global Franchises list are overcoming logistical challenges and cultural differences to bring their products and services - and their franchise opportunities - to people all around the world,” said Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “Franchise companies listed are the ones finding intelligent and innovative ways to translate their brands to new audiences.”
