FirstLight® Home Care Recognized by Franchise Business Review as a Top Franchise for Veterans, Top Senior Care Franchise and Most Innovative Franchise
FirstLight Home Care landed a spot on three of Franchise Business Review's Top Franchise Lists of 2019
CINCINNATI (PRWEB) October 17, 2019 - FirstLight® Home Care, the leading national provider of non-medical home care, has been named by Franchise Business Review as a Top Franchise for Veterans, a Top Senior Care Franchise and one of the year’s Most Innovative Franchises.
This year, Franchise Business Review surveyed 1,633 franchisees in the senior care sector to gauge satisfaction with their franchisor and happiness with their decision to invest in a franchise. The team also surveyed more than 26,000 franchisees from many of today’s leading franchise brands to determine the top franchises for veterans and the most innovative franchises, based exclusively on franchisee satisfaction. Each survey participant was asked 33 benchmark questions about their franchisor that focused on areas such as leadership, training, and core values, as well as 16 more personal questions concerning their business lifestyle and overall enjoyment related to operating their franchise.
"Being featured on these 2019 lists is very satisfying because they are each based on surveys of owners which shows how satisfied our franchisees are to be a part of the FirstLight family," said Jeff Bevis, co-founder and CEO of FirstLight Home Care. "We feel that the key to our continued growth is not only serving our home care clients exceptionally well but also doing everything in our power to make our owners successful. We take the team concept very seriously and being ranked as a top franchise opportunity of 2019 proves that our approach is working."
This listing marks the third year FirstLight Home Care has been recognized by Franchise Business Review as a top senior care franchise; the second year the brand has been recognized as a top innovative franchise; and the fifth year as a leading franchise for veterans.
FirstLight serves seniors, adults with disabilities, new mothers, veterans, those recovering from surgery and other adults in need of assistance through a Culture of Care™ commitment to excellent service, personal growth and accountability. The company's caregivers help with a wide range of needs, including personal hygiene, cooking, cleaning, running errands, mobility assistance and dementia care.
This ability to tap into demand across a wide customer base positions FirstLight for continued success, especially as the home care industry continues to grow rapidly in the United States. With more than 200 locations nationwide, a 77% caregiver retention rate based on consistent training and professional development opportunities, and a systemwide revenue of $117 million, FirstLight Home Care is a premier service brand in the home care space.
Additionally, FirstLight has shown significant growth in 2019 by opening 14 locations in markets across the U.S. FirstLight is also looking to build on that momentum by actively targeting Greater Philadelphia, Miami, Seattle, Dallas, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, San Jose, Greater Hartford and Montgomery for development.
“We are growing at a very rapid and strategic rate,” said Jamie Davis, Executive Director of Franchise Development. “The markets we are targeting are proven to succeed and it is so great to see that success now being recognized in the senior care sector and the franchising industry as a whole.”
In recent months, the company has also made the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing, privately held companies, and ranked No. 3 on Forbes’ 2019 “Best Franchises To Buy” in the Low Investment Category.
