GILBERT, Ariz. (June 9, 2022)—SYNERGY HomeCare, a national homecare franchise and an Entrepreneur 500 ranked enterprise, again led the homecare industry in territory sales growth in 2021, becoming one of the top five largest homecare franchisors in the United States. It marks the second consecutive year that SYNERGY HomeCare awarded more territories than any other franchisor in the homecare category, according to a review of franchise disclosure documents (FDDs) and other public records of all home care franchisors who are members of the International Franchise Association (IFA).
SYNERGY HomeCare ended 2021 with 406 sold territories. The company has inked more than 100 new territories since January 2020, which represents a 32% increase. The momentum has continued into 2022 with 16 territories sold year to date.
“There are multiple reasons for our sustained growth, but it includes a concerted effort to enhance our operating systems and offerings, while working to attract strong candidates,” said SYNERGY HomeCare CEO Charlie Young. “Along with bringing on new high-quality, care-minded franchisees, we are also growing organically within our existing franchise base. Our story and message is resonating, and we are working hard to propel our franchisees and our network forward in the rapidly growing homecare sector.”
Young pointed to a number of current franchisees that expanded in 2021, including industry-leaders Weama Kassem and Ruth Busalacchi.
Kassem, who launched her SYNERGY HomeCare of Edmond, Oklahoma in 2012 and was recently named the system’s top producing franchisee, added a second operation in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Busalacchi, who was recently honored with the brand’s “Most Engaged Marketer,” award, expanded her established SYNERGY HomeCare of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin into Elkhorn, Wisconsin.
In addition, the brand entered Rhode Island, its 40th state, with the sale of SYNERGY HomeCare of Warwick.
SYNERGY HomeCare has made numerous investments in enhancing its staff and programming, including hiring franchise marketing expert Jennifer Chasteen as its first chief marketing officer. The company is also rolling out a new memory care program enabling franchisees and their caregivers to provide personalized care and engagement to people living with Alzheimer’s or dementia.
“Our franchisees come to work each day knowing how much of a difference they are making in the lives of their clients and their families,” said Chief Growth Officer Mike Steed. “I really believe we are only beginning to scratch the surface of our growth prospects, not only in providing care for the aging demographic, but also for those living with disabilities, chronic conditions, illness, injury and more. The need for our services is growing each day and it’s exciting to see SYNERGY HomeCare as a leader in meeting those needs.”
