FirstLight Home Care Named to Franchise Times Fast & Serious List
Award-winning national home care franchise ranked 12 in Franchise Times' annual listing of the smartest growing brands
CINCINNATI, Jan. 10, 2018 -- 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 what Franchise Times deems are the smartest growing franchisors based on percentage sales growth, percentage unit growth, dollar sales growth, and numerical unit growth, among other factors.
Ranked number 12 on the list, FirstLight Home Care reported a 142 percent growth in sales and a 42 percent growth in franchise units over the past three years. The company distinguishes itself from other industry brands by offering assistance to a wide demographic of adults in need. FirstLight assists seniors, new mothers, veterans, adults with disabilities, and those recovering from illness, injury or surgery, who need help on short-term or long-term basis.
“We owe our growth and prosperity to our dedicated franchise owners and excellent caregivers,” said Jeff Bevis, co-founder and CEO of FirstLight Home Care. "Our standards are high, and those representing FirstLight at our growing number of locations are consistently delivering experiences in line with our foundational values and culture of care. We are very selective during the franchise ownership process and we provide franchise owners with the best support possible so they may, in turn, provide the highest quality, non-medical home care around the country."
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 successful 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 2017, FirstLight was ranked on Franchise Times' Top 200+ list for the fifth year in a row, Inc. Magazine's Inc. 5000 list for the third year in a row, and on Entrepreneur's 2017 Franchise 500 list.
