September 09, 2019 // Franchising.com // Houston, TX - Local entrepreneurs looking to run a business that makes a difference in the lives of Texas families will soon have to look no further. BrightStar Care, a national franchise specializing in providing A Higher Standard of Care in medical and non-medical in-home care services, has announced targeted development plans throughout the state. The brand has available franchise territories in Dallas, Fort Worth, and Houston, and is seeking qualified franchise partners to operate in each market.

The U.S. Census Bureau estimates more than 20 percent of Texas’ population will be over age 60 by the year 2030, an increase of close to 25 percent from 2012. The demographics and aging population matched with a proven business model make Texas a prime market for BrightStar Care’s continued growth.
“The aging population in Texas coupled with the fact that there is an undeniable need for quality in-home care services, makes Texas an exciting development region for BrightStar Care,” said Pete First, Vice President of Franchise Development. “There are currently several territories available throughout Texas, and each are prime markets where the community needs our Higher Standard of Care for in-home services. We are eager to find local business leaders to build on this legacy and bring our first-in-class, quality home health care services to each development market.
In addition to the number of clients the average BrightStar Care location serves, the average BrightStar Care location employs RNs, therapists, LPNs, CNAs, and HHAs as part of their care staff. In its search for qualified applicants to expand the brand in Texas, BrightStar Care is looking for educated men and women who are self-motivated and have a high level of business acumen. Prospective franchisees must have the ability to manage and lead a team but are not required to have a healthcare background. It is important to note that qualified prospects must have liquid assets of $200,000 or more.
“One of the great things about our franchise model, is that you don’t have to have previous healthcare experience,” said First. “The majority of our incoming franchisees don’t come from a healthcare background. We’re looking for business managers who have a strong passion for our brand, and an appreciation for providing A Higher Standard of Care services.”
