According to the International Franchise Association's VetFran Initiative, there are more than 66,000 veteran-owned franchises, accounting for one in seven franchises in the U.S. These franchises provide 815,000 jobs for Americans and account for more than $41 billion toward the U.S. GDP.

FirstLight Home Care franchises are popular among veterans for many reasons, including the ease with which they can start their own business in the non-medical home health care field. FirstLight's extensive training programs for both owners and their home care employees includes 55 hours of online training and eight full days at the Cincinnati headquarters.  FirstLight Home Care also offers ongoing support from the home office staff, owner surveys and feedback mechanisms, dedicated state-of-the-art technology and back of office systems and marketing assistance.

"With FirstLight, franchisees benefit from a low start-up cost, exclusive protected territories, and the best training in the industry," said McPherson. "We started FirstLight in 2010, and were recently honored to be named as an Entrepreneur Magazine Top 500 franchise.
