Meeting franchise candidates is a truly fascinating part of my job. No two prospective franchisees have a similar background or identical professional experience that brought them to owning a home care business or that makes them a stronger candidate versus others. This means that we have an incredibly diverse group of franchisees, who bring a world of different work histories and knowledge to their business that can benefit them and their clients in unexpected and meaningful ways, much like other franchise concepts.
Learn more about a few of our franchise owners to see what I mean:

Greg Wann spent most of his adult working life with Disney before he left corporate life for a non-profit so he could make a difference in other people’s lives.

Read about Greg’s path to home care business ownership in Entrepreneur and the Florida Business Observer.
