Oklahoma City (June 24, 2020)—Local entrepreneurs looking to run a business that makes a difference in the lives of families across Oklahoma will soon have to look no further. BrightStar Care, a national franchise specializing in providing care in medical and non-medical in-home care services, has announced targeted development plans throughout the state of Oklahoma. The brand looks to expand over the next three to five years, and is seeking qualified franchise partners to join the fast-growing brand.
With two territories successfully operating throughout the state and the aging population steadily growing with the 60+ age group projected to be the fastest growing demographic in the next 10 years, Oklahoma has proven to be a viable market for BrightStar Care’s continued franchise expansion plans. The brand has 10 territories available throughout Oklahoma City, Norman, North Tulsa and more.
”In-home care has become a staple of personalization and comfort in the health care industry, and as the need for skilled workers continues to grow, it’s important to be able to meet the customers where they are, and offer help in the most personal way possible,” said Ken Fearnow, who owns BrightStar Care of Edmond/Oklahoma City and NW Oklahoma City. “Each of our clients has their own set of needs, and we’re able to accommodate them all through our in-home personalized care plans. We service everything from medical care, companionship, transportation, to short-term rehabilitation.”
In addition to the clients a BrightStar Care location serves, each employs RNs, therapists, LPNs and CNAs as part of their care staff. To ensure the highest standard of safety precautions during the COVID-19 outbreak, all caregivers are screened for symptoms prior to their shift, have gone through a robust safety training, and are equipped with necessary personal protective equipment, as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization, dependent on a patients’ symptoms.
“There is an undeniable need for quality in-home care services, which makes our statewide expansion efforts lucrative, especially during an unprecedented time like this, which is affecting all areas and age groups,” said Pete First, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development. “We are looking to develop in completely new cities throughout the state to further provide for families, and with that, we are hopeful to find local business leaders to bring our first-in-class, quality home health care services to fruition in the area.”
In its search for qualified applicants to expand the brand in Oklahoma, 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 health care background. It is important to note that qualified prospects must have liquid assets of $200,000 or more.
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 as their 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 $500 million system with more than 330 locations across the United States.
