FirstLight Home Care Named to Forbes’ Best Franchise List

National non-medical home care provider recognized as one of the best franchises to buy

FirstLight Home Care, an award-winning provider of non-medical home care, has been named by Forbes as one of the best franchises to own in the United States.

Forbes examined more than 3,200 different franchise brands to compile its list of America’s Best and Worst Franchises to Buy 2018. They used information gathered by the franchise industry research firm, FRANdata, which evaluates brands on criteria like support and stability for franchisees, demand, sustainability and value for investment.

FirstLight Home Care ranked among the top 10 franchises to buy with an investment under $150,000, which they classify as a low-investment category. The company’s 29.9 percent five-year growth rate, far above any other home care franchise recognized, was a key reason for landing on the coveted list.

“It’s an honor to receive this recognition from Forbes,” said Bill McPherson, executive director of franchise development for FirstLight Home Care. “We’ve spent a lot of time ensuring our business model is profitable and offers tremendous support for franchise owners. This recognition is a testament to the success of our franchises and demonstrates why we get high marks on franchisee satisfaction.”

With more than 160 locations in 34 states, and another 60 in development, FirstLight Home Care is an emerging market leader in the burgeoning home care industry. With a midpoint initial investment level at just under $120,000, a FirstLight franchise makes a great business opportunity for those who are passionate about becoming entrepreneurs while contributing to their community.
