Caregiving industry provides a growing opportunity with the rise of baby boomers

Dayton, OH (December 14, 2012) - Comfort Keepers®, a leading franchise network in the in-home care market for seniors and other adults needing care is proud to be recognized by  Entrepreneur magazine's Franchise 500© for 2013. The company ranks #1 in the Senior Care category and #59 out of the overall top 500.

The Comfort Keepers franchise opportunity has much to offer potential franchisees:

  • Growing Market -- Ten thousand baby boomers turn 65 every day and the trend will continue for 20 years.  As the demand for in-home care continues to grow, Comfort Keepers continues to expand its footprint across the US to meet that demand.
  • Proven System -- Comfort Keepers' well-developed operational system provides a framework for franchisee start-up, on-going support and continued training to keep pace with franchisees' growth.
  • Start-up Support -- Comfort Keepers provides extensive resources and training, allowing franchisees to be well-prepared and quickly get started on building their business.

"We are fortunate to be in a rapidly growing industry with growth potential for years to come.

We believe our business model provides great opportunity and benefits for motivated franchisees," said Jim Brown, CFE and Vice President Franchise Development for Comfort Keepers.
