The 38th annual Franchise 500® is an exclusive ranking that provides a comprehensive look at the most successful, fastest-growing franchise companies. All companies are evaluated in the following areas: objective, financial strength and stability, growth rate, size of system and other quantifiable measures of a franchise operation. Home Care Assistance has also recently been named a top franchise by Franchise Business Review in its 2017 Top Franchises Report. These prestigious recognitions come after a year of rapid expansion for the Bay Area-based company. “We are honored to be recognized as a Franchise 500® company and thrilled to be ranked alongside some of the nation’s top companies” said Barbara Schuh, Vice President of Franchise Development at Home Care Assistance “We are dedicated to providing our franchise owners with the support and resources they need to succeed, and we are proud that our innovative franchising approach has delivered such great results for both our franchise owners and the communities they serve.” Home Care Assistance has created a hybrid franchise model, where they use corporate-owned offices as “incubators” to test out new and innovative technologies like its Cognitive Therapeutics Method (CTM) an activities-based program designed to boost mental acuity and help delay the onset and progression of cognitive decline like dementia. The company has also recently launched a number of new technology-based programs to address the needs of our ever-growing aging population. Dubbed the “home care company with a Silicon Valley soul,” it has partnered with Lyft, the fastest-growing rideshare company in the country, to allow seniors to request on-demand rides with a simple phone call. The company has also teamed up with OhmniLabs, a Silicon Valley-based robotics company, on a pilot project to bring affordable and capable robots that virtually provide companionship and care for older adults. Entrepreneur Magazine bases its rankings on key factors including system size, growth, brand strength, and financial strength and stability.
