TOP 100 FRANCHISE FOR VETERANS
Leading non-medical home care franchise listed by Franchise Business Review as a top franchise for veterans - CINCINNATI, Nov. 15, 2017
“This recognition is really special to us as it is purely based on feedback from our veteran franchisees,” said Jeff Bevis, CEO of FirstLight Home Care. “We have great respect for veterans and we found that veterans make outstanding franchise owners. They are focused on being servant leaders, and with the booming senior care industry, the skills and life experience that veterans have are a tremendous advantage. We believe strongly in making it even easier for veterans and their spouses to become franchise owners, or to find employment.”
FirstLight offers a franchise fee discount of $10,000 for veterans, which is approximately 25 percent less than the regular franchise fee. FirstLight regularly attends and presents at regional and national events that are created to assist transitioning veterans to highlight opportunities that exist within the franchise industry for veterans and their spouses. Bevis also serves as vice chair of the International Franchise Association’s VetFran committee to help provide access and opportunities in both employment and franchising for veterans and their spouses.
This ranking closely follows Entrepreneur Magazine’s recent recognition of FirstLight as one of the top Franchise 500 companies for veterans based on veteran incentives and support of veteran franchisees. The company also received the highest ranking from the IFA’s VetFran committee based on veteran discount, clean audit reports, and the history and size of the business.
Other prestigious awards that FirstLight recently received include a ranking on Franchise Times’ Top 200+ list for the fifth year in a row, a ranking on Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000 list for the third year in a row, and a ranking on Entrepreneur’s 2017 Franchise 500 list.
