FirstLight HomeCare signs first franchise agreement
According to a report published on the website, dbusinessnews.com, FirstLight HomeCare Franchising, a provider of professional, non-medical, live-in and hourly care services to seniors and others who need assistance, signed its first franchise agreement on July 1, 2010. The information given reveals that its first franchisee is Tammy Iuso who will be operating in Orlando, Fla. Furthermore, four additional franchises are expected to be up and running by fall 2010.
In the article, Founder, President and CEO Jeff Bevis, commented, “The home care industry is severely fragmented, with no single provider achieving even one percent of the market share. We feel the opportunity for leadership in care services and client satisfaction is a position that no one owns nor has commanding consumer awareness to achieve. Our operating model incorporates the strongest traits and benefits from our collective experience both in and out of franchising to create what we believe is a franchise system like no other in senior care.”
According to information provided by the company, FirstLight HomeCare was designed from the ground up to be a completely new approach to high-quality in-home care. The founders have 40 years of experience in healthcare, service success and the development of a major, national senior care company. The company is looking to have found around 70 franchises within the next three years. (kbp)
