FirstLight Home Care Named to Franchise Times Fast & Serious List

Award-winning national home care franchise makes Franchise Times’ annual listing of the smartest growing brands for second straight year

CINCINNATI, Ohio – Jan. 11, 2019 – FirstLight Home Care, a leading national provider of non-medical home care, has been named to the Franchise Times Fast & Serious list, an annual ranking of the smartest growing franchisors based on percentage sales growth, percentage unit growth, dollar sales growth, and numerical unit growth, among other factors.

Ranked on the list for the second consecutive year, FirstLight Home Care reported 20.1 percent sales growth in 2018. FirstLight serves seniors, adults with disabilities, new mothers, veterans, those recovering from surgery and other adults in need of assistance. Their caregivers help with many needs – from personal hygiene and household duties such as cooking, cleaning and running errands to mobility assistance and dementia care.

“Being named to this list for the second year in a row is a testament to the dedication of our entire team, from the staff at home office to our caregivers,” said Jeff Bevis, co-founder and CEO of FirstLight Home Care. “Our company has grown tremendously, but at the same time, we’re focusing on keeping that growth strategic and sustainable. We want people who are passionate about home care owning and working in our offices. That strategy pays off when you look at our employee retention rates, owner satisfaction and the reputation of our company.”

Franchise Times’ Fast & Serious is a ranking of franchises that have staying power in addition to rapid growth. The media outlet developed a proprietary 10-point formula to analyze franchise brands based on data sourced from the Franchise Times Top 200+ submissions, the publication’s annual ranking of the largest franchise systems based on revenue. Only companies with system-wide sales above $40 million were considered for this list.

In recent months, FirstLight Home Care has also made the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing, privately held companies, the Franchise Times Top 200+ of the 500 largest franchise companies and Franchise Business Review’s Top 100 Franchises for Innovation and Top Franchises for Veterans lists.
