FirstLight Home Care Named One of the Top Franchises for Veterans by Entrepreneur Magazine
Leading non-medical home care franchise recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine for second consecutive year.
November 19, 2018 // Franchising.com // CINCINNATI - FirstLight Home Care, an award-winning provider of non-medical home care, was ranked by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the top franchises for veterans.
FirstLight was evaluated based on veteran incentives, support of veteran franchisees, and its ranking in the 2018 Franchise 500. This is the company's second year in a row making the list.
"We've long been a supporter of veterans and are always looking for more ways to show appreciation for those who have served our country," said Jeff Bevis, CEO and co-founder of FirstLight Home Care. "We have programs in place to provide veterans with assistance in opening their own FirstLight business, and we've had tremendous success at our locations owned by those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces."
As part of its support for all U.S. military veterans, FirstLight discounts its franchise fee by $12,500 for veterans. Bevis also serves as the current committee chairman of the International Franchise Association (IFA) Education Foundation VetFran Committee, which helps provide access and opportunities in both employment and franchising for veterans and their spouses. Additionally, FirstLight regularly attends and presents at regional and national events that are created to assist transitioning veterans to highlight both business ownership and employment opportunities that exist within the franchise industry for veterans and their spouses.
In addition to making Entrepreneur Magazine's Top Franchises for Veterans list, Franchise Business Review ranked FirstLight as a Top Franchise for Veterans for the second consecutive year.
The recognition from Entrepreneur adds to the recent awards FirstLight has been receiving lately.
