It is the most comprehensive approach to home care available, designed to encompass care for the whole individual – mind, body and spirit, in addition to care for the family.

Placement in the Franchise 500® is a highly sought-after honor in the franchise industry, making it one of the company's most competitive rankings ever. The key factors that go into the Franchise 500® evaluation include costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand power and financial strength and stability. Each franchise is given a cumulative score based on an analysis of more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500® in ranking order.
"The 500 companies on this list all have something in common: They understand what consumers want now," says Entrepreneur editor in chief Jason Feifer. "They may be an upstart in a brand-new category, or they may be a brand like Dunkin' that's ranked highly on our list for decades. But either way, making our list means they're forward-thinking, nimble and closely in touch with their customers' needs –because in an ever-changing business environment, that's what a franchise must do to thrive."
Over its 41 years in existence, the Franchise 500® has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for potential franchisees. Interim HealthCare Inc.'s position on the ranking is a testament to its continued strength as a franchise opportunity.
