How much do BrightStar Care home health franchises cost?
The initial investment for a BrightStar Care location can be anywhere between $101,656 and $169,414, depending on variables such as real estate and labor costs in your market.
What makes BrightStar Care different from other home health franchises?
There are several reasons why BrightStar Care stands out:
- BrightStar Care franchisees have access to multiple revenue streams, such as home health care, companion care, skilled services, staffing, senior care, childcare, and others.
- BrightStar Care’s business model is extremely scalable and has uncapped revenue potential
- National Accounts – BrightStar has established large national and regional accounts that our franchisees can benefit from. These relationships provide additional revenue opportunities for franchisees that are participating in the program.
- Joint Commission Accreditation – Our franchisees are required to obtain Joint Commission Accreditation, which is considered the highest standard for health care organizations and earned by many hospitals, doctors’ offices, and nursing homes. This dedication to high standards sets us apart from our competition and provides clients with peace of mind knowing that their loved ones are being cared for by a professional organization.
What are the minimum financial qualifications for the home health care franchise?
Franchisees should have access to liquid capital of $150,000. We recommend additional capital or income so you can comfortably cover living expenses until your business ramps up.

The royalty is 5.25% of monthly net billings generated from non-National Accounts and 6.25% of monthly net billings generated from National Accounts. The advertising fees are $250 per month or 3% of the previous month’s Net Billings, whichever is greater.
