FirstLight Home Care Recognized as a Top 100 Franchise for Both Veterans and Innovation by Franchise Business Review
Leading non-medical home care franchise makes two Franchise Business Review lists of excellence.
October 25, 2018 - CINCINNATI - FirstLight Home Care, a leading national provider of non-medical home care, was listed by Franchise Business Review as one of the Top 100 Franchises for Veterans and one of the 100 Most Innovative Franchises for 2018.
The lists feature award-winning franchises whose franchisees have shown a high level of satisfaction with the business, considering factors such as training and support, leadership, and financial opportunity, both with veterans and with all franchisees.
“This recognition holds a special place in the franchise world because it is based on the direct feedback of the franchisees,” said Jeff Bevis, CEO of FirstLight Home Care. “We have always made it a priority within our system to equip our owners with the tools necessary to run a meaningful, service-focused business, and earning each of the Franchise Business Review accolades tells us that we’re truly setting our brand up for growth and continued industry leadership.”
No stranger to Franchise Business Review’s Top 100 lists, this is the second consecutive year FirstLight has made the Top 100 Franchises for Veterans. The company offers a franchise fee discount of $12,500 for veterans. Additionally, FirstLight regularly attends and presents at regional and national events that are created to assist transitioning veterans to highlight both business ownership and employment opportunities that exist within the franchise industry for veterans and their spouses.
“We have long been a proponent of veteran leadership within our franchise,” Bevis, who is also the current committee chairman of the International Franchise Association (IFA) Education Foundation VetFran Committee, said. “Veterans have a strong sense of duty and service, and their leadership skills and ability to adapt to changing circumstances make them ideal owners for us. Making the Franchise Business Review’s Top 100 Franchises for Veterans list is an important accolade, as it says to other veterans: ‘FirstLight truly appreciates the service each of our military veterans gives to our country.’ In turn, when the veteran is transitioning out of their service, FirstLight is one of the top business ownership opportunities to consider.”
The recognition from Franchise Business Review adds to the recent awards FirstLight has been receiving lately. In recent months, the company has also made the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing, privately held companies, as well as the Franchise Times Top 200+ of the 500 largest franchise companies for the fourth and sixth consecutive times, respectively.
