CINCINNATI, April 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- FirstLight Home Care, a national provider of non-medical home care, was recently awarded the highest ranking from the International Franchise Association VetFran committee. This is a distinct honor that is factored by several components based on veteran discount, clean audit report, years in business, years in franchising and units open. A "FIVE STAR" designation is given to only the top ranking IFA VetFran members.
The purpose of the IFA VetFran "STAR" designation is to:
- Establish a clear, recognizable designation for veterans to utilize when evaluating franchise brands
- Enhance the offerings for veterans whether evaluating franchise ownership or employment opportunities with a franchise system
- Establish core, consistent standards for all franchisors to aspire to give our veterans even greater opportunities for franchise success
"What makes our business model special to veterans is we not only offer these highly-trained individuals ideal business opportunities, but our proprietary method of non-medical home care is designed to assist anyone over age 18, including injured vets returning home from service," said Bill McPherson, executive director franchise development at FirstLight Home Care. "We want to continue to serve these brave individuals and will continue to live up to the standards of the VetFran FIVE STAR ranking."
FirstLight Home Care distinguishes itself from other industry brands by offering assistance to a wide demographic of adults in need. The company 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.
Home care is and has been one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, and demand continues to climb based upon our aging population. FirstLight Home Care has replicated a competitive business model spanning across 32 states where franchisees are serving the needs of their local communities.
In addition to recent IFA VetFran FIVE STAR designation, FirstLight Home Care was named to Entrepreneur's Franchise 500 list and Top Franchise for Veterans by Franchise Business Review.
