HOUSTON (September 10, 2019)—BrightStar Care, a national franchise specializing in providing A Higher Standard of Care in medical and non-medical in-home care services, has announced targeted development plans throughout Texas. The brand has available franchise territories in Dallas, Fort Worth and Houston, and is seeking qualified franchise partners to operate in each market.

Currently, there are 27 BrightStar Care locations open and operating in the state. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Texans age 60 and up are the fastest-growing populations in the state, and that number is expected to more than triple between now and 2050. The demographics and aging population matched with a proven business model make Texas a prime market for BrightStar Care’s continued growth.

“The aging population in Texas coupled with the fact that there is an undeniable need for quality in-home care services, makes Texas an exciting development region for BrightStar Care,” said Pete First, vice president of franchise development. “There are currently several territories available throughout Texas, and each are prime markets where the community needs our Higher Standard of Care for in-home services. We are eager to find local business leaders to build on this legacy and bring our first-in-class, quality home health care services to each development market.

In addition to the number of clients the average BrightStar Care location serves, the average BrightStar Care location employs RNs, therapists, LPNs, CNAs, and HHAs as part of their care staff. In its search for qualified applicants to expand the brand in Texas, BrightStar Care is looking for educated men and women who are self-motivated and have a high level of business acumen. Prospective franchisees must have the ability to manage and lead a team but are not required to have a healthcare background. It is important to note that qualified prospects must have liquid assets of $200,000 or more.

“One of the great things about our franchise model, is that you don’t have to have previous health care experience,” said First. “The majority of our incoming franchisees don’t come from a healthcare background. We’re looking for business managers who have a strong passion for our brand, and an appreciation for providing A Higher Standard of Care services.”

BrightStar Care offers both medical and non-medical private duty home health care services, as well as medical staffing. Each BrightStar Care location employs a registered nurse director of nursing who tailors unique, personalized plans of care for each client and oversees a professional care team of well-qualified, experienced caregivers. The company began franchising in 2005 and has since grown to a $350 million system with more than 330 locations across the United States and Canada.
