NAMPA, Idaho (April 9, 2015) — Assisting Hands Home Care today announced two major growth milestones for its in-home care services. In November 2014, the international company sold its 80th franchise territory, located in Sussex County, New Jersey. In February 2015, the 40th Assisting Hands service office opened its doors in Pasco County, Florida, and the company is poised for growth as it starts its second quarter.
Assisting Hands Director of Franchise Development Diane Wright confirmed that 2014 was the best sales year the company has ever seen for new franchises.
“Of the 82 total franchises we have now sold, 24 of those were sold during the 2014 calendar year,” said Wright. “Expansion like this is one of the best indicators of a company’s success.”
Assisting Hands President and CEO Lane Kofoed said the company has been working with franchise brokers to generate sales leads from the increasing number of individuals across the United States and in Canada hoping to open their own businesses. In addition, existing franchisees are building relationships with clients and their families, seeing success and are buying additional territories to expand their businesses.
“People are starting to feel better about the economy,” said Kofoed. “They also see a growing trend within the senior care industry as more and more baby boomers are looking for a way to safely stay at home, rather than moving into a facility.”
Assisting Hands offers quality and compassionate in-home care for the elderly, the disabled or those recovering from a medical procedure. Services include bathing, grooming, meal preparation, errands and medical appointment transportation, light housekeeping and much more.
