Happy Franchise Appreciation Day!

Happy Franchise Appreciation Day to all of our franchisees! We are incredibly thankful to have such genuine and caring owners who strive everyday to make a difference in at least one person’s life, as well as their community as a whole.

Where would FirstLight Home Care be without our senior care owners? Although we are continually training and ensuring ownership growth for all of our owners, FirstLight Home Care wouldn’t be able to provide and promise exceptional senior care to clients and their families if not for our owners and their determination, hard work, and never-ending kindness. There’s a reason we desired each and every one of them as owners; their diverse backgrounds, personalities, skill sets, etc., but perhaps most importantly, as a FirstLight Home Care team they execute our Culture of Care philosophy with natural ease and kindness.

While our appreciation this week goes out to all of our FirstLight owners, it doesn’t stop there.  Franchise outlets and their franchise owners are boosting the economy in several ways; through increasing national job generation and GDP, as well as local economies. According to IFA, (International Franchise Association), in June, franchises added 27,000 jobs to the national economy, and for the month of July, 12,305 jobs. Overall, franchises are expected to continue to increase jobs and GDP for 2013 with a 2% increase in change for jobs from 2012, and a 4.1% increase in change for GDP from 2012. Overall, the economy is expecting a 1.5% increase change in employment and a 1.8% increase in change for GDP. The franchise industry is expected to boost employment and GDP more than the overall economy!

Due to the growing need for home care, we’re always looking for potential new senior care owners!
