CHICAGO (February 14, 2020)—BrightStar Care is a medical and non-medical home health care franchise. The brand expanded into many previously untapped markets in 2019 and has promising projections for 2020.

In 2019, BrightStar Care welcomed 25 new franchisees into the system across 16 states. Riding the momentum, BrightStar Care is targeting territories across the United States, including key expansion markets such as Nashville, Tennessee, Cleveland, Ohio, Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Seattle for new franchise locations in 2020.

“With more and more seniors seeing the benefits of aging in place, the demand for our services continues to rise, making our growth story even more pivotal as we head into 2020,” said Pete First, vice president of franchise development. “We’re here to help everyone, from those who need medical services, to those that are looking for companionship. In 2020, we will continue to innovate and increase our bandwidth of services so we can best serve the communities we’re part of.”

BrightStar Care’s success was also proven by its recent award rankings, including Entrepreneur’s prestigious Franchise 500. The ninth consecutive year for BrightStar Care on the list, the brand came in at No. 184 this year. Franchise Business Review named BrightStar Care a top franchise for 2020, marking its 10th year receiving the award.
