NAMPA, Idaho (December 30, 2015) — Assisting Hands Home Care has been named 307th overall in Entrepreneur’s 2016 Franchise 500, rocketing up more than 100 spots over five years, to land 16th among in-home caregivers.
According to Entrepreneur, “To be eligible for the Franchise 500®, a franchisor must have a minimum of 10 units, with at least one franchise located in the U.S. [and] the company must be seeking new franchisees.”
The most important factors Entrepreneur is looking for include financial strength and stability, growth rate, and size, as well as how many years a company has been in business and the length of time it’s been franchising. Startup costs, litigation, the percentage of terminations, and whether the company provides financing are also considerations.
Assisting Hands President and CEO Lane Kofoed said the company attributes the most recent signs of company growth to the quality of his National Team and Family of Franchise Owners. “This is a huge accomplishment and extremely high praise from such a prestigious magazine,” said Kofoed. “I think it all boils down to the excellent relationship we have with our Franchisees—our Family of Franchise Owners—and our National Team; together they are the reason for our success.”
