Always Best Care Senior Services, a U.S. senior care franchise system, achieved significant growth amid an unprecedented year for home healthcare.
Most notably, the brand celebrated international expansion with the signing of a Canadian master franchise agreement and the opening of Always Best Care of Oakville, Ont.
Throughout 2020, several existing franchisees reinvested in Always Best Care, resulting in a total of 18 franchise territory renewals. Additionally, four established operators expanded their portfolios with Always Best Care through the acquisition of new and existing territories.
As a result of these acquisitions and expansions, Always Best Care grew its brand presence in states like Florida and New Mexico, as well as welcomed new owners to territories in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and California.
“2021 marks Always Best Care’s 25th year in business and coming out of an unprecedented year, I couldn’t be more optimistic about the future and longevity of our brand,” said Always Best Care president and CEO Jake Brown. “Despite the challenges our industry faced, I’m incredibly proud of how our dedicated corporate team and franchisees rallied alongside one another to reach new heights and best serve our clients and their needs during such a high-risk time.
“As we reflect on the franchise development growth we experienced in the midst of the pandemic, most of which was driven by existing franchisees, we’re fortunate to have such passionate, talented, and proud owners alongside us as we kick off a milestone year.”
The company delivers its services through an international network of more than 200 independently owned and operated franchise territories throughout the United States and Canada.
The hallmark services of Always Best Care include non-medical in-home care and assisted living finder and referral services, with skilled home health care in some limited markets.
