Chicago-based BrightStar Care, a national franchise specializing in skilled medical and non-medical in-home care services, has six new territories available for growth in Greater Cleveland, according to a news release.
The aging population of Cleveland — with approximately 73,000 adults over 65 — and across the country has contributed the rapid growth of BrightStar Care and its active development plans, according to the release. BrightStar has more than 329 locations across the U.S. and Canada.
The average BrightStar Care location serves about 70 families and employs RNs, therapists, LPNs, CNAs, and HHAs as part of the care staff.
Prospective franchisees must be self-motivated, have a high level of business acumen, be able to manage and lead a team, but a health care background is not required, according to the release. Qualified prospects need liquid assets of $200,000.
BrightStar Care — which offers medical and non-medical private duty home care services, as well as medical staffing — began franchising in 2005 and has since grown to a $350 million company, according to the release.
