CINCINNATI, June 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- FirstLight Home Care, a provider of quality, affordable, non-medical home care for adults, was identified by independent franchisee satisfaction research firm, Franchise Business Review, as being one of only 80 franchises to qualify for its Top Low-Cost Franchises list. Brands on the list had to have high franchisee satisfaction and an investment of under $100,000 at the time their franchisees participated in Franchise Business Review's franchisee satisfaction survey.
"This award is incredibly meaningful to us as it is based on feedback from our franchisees," said Jeff Bevis, chief executive officer of FirstLight Home Care. "The overall satisfaction of our franchisees is a top priority for us and it's good to know that they would recommend the FirstLight brand to friends and family looking to invest in a business opportunity."
Approximately 13,000 franchisees representing 123 low-cost brands participated in Franchise Business Review's low-cost franchisee satisfaction survey between October 2015 and April 2017. FirstLight's franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training and support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.
"FirstLight Home Care's level of satisfaction in areas that are crucial to the health of a franchise system earned it a spot on our 2017 Top Low-Cost franchises list," says Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. "With 90 percent of the 13,000 low-cost franchisees we surveyed saying they enjoy operating their business, low-cost franchises are clearly a great option for many who wish to be their own boss."
Since opening its first franchise location in 2009, FirstLight Home Care has experienced steady growth and has awarded more than 235 locations in 32 states throughout the U.S.
