BrightStar Care Closes Out 2015 with 300th Franchise Signing
In 2015, BrightStar Care – a national private duty in-home care franchise – opened 25 new locations and surpassed the 300-location milestone since it started franchising in 2006. In 2016, the business plans to grow to 350 locations across the country and extend the brand into international markets.
“Families have so many choices when they seek home care for their loved ones, and we are proud to offer them ‘A Higher Standard of Care’ in local communities across the country,” said Shelly Sun, CEO and Co-Founder of BrightStar Care in a recent press release. “Our Registered Nurse Directors of Nursing meet with every family to prepare a customized plan of care based on the health and wellness needs of their loved one. Our franchisees hire experienced nurses and caregivers and provide ongoing training to deliver this higher standard to every family we serve.”
BrightStar Care also made two key additions to its senior leadership team in 2015, bringing on Steve Schildwachter as its Chief Marketing Officer and Tom Lehr as Chief Financial Officer. With these additions, BrightStar Care gained extensive leadership experience and expertise to support its strategic goals while maximizing its rapid growth.
By 2018, the CEO plans to have three brands in total and hopes to be operating in at least eight international markets with a strong focus on Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Japan, and Western Europe.
