Because we want to make sure you have the best possible chance to succeed, we follow our time-tested business model that lays out the steps to success. Read on to learn how to start a BrightStar Senior Living franchise.

    Here, we will introduce you to our BrightStar Senior Living. We will also highlight the senior living industry and how we’re perfectly positioned for the senior living marketplace today and in the future.

  2. Submit Franchise Application

    During this process, we will determine if you are financially qualified to become a BrightStar Senior Living franchisee. We will also discuss operational review.
