To fill this demand, the successful U.S.-based BrightStar Care, with over 260 franchises that provide private duty medical and non-medical in-home care, plans to expand into Canada. International franchise development veteran, Anthony Padulo, who has previously led international efforts for franchises including Dunkin’ Brands, BP Oil and Aamco, is spearheading the expansion.
As Executive Vice President, International, for BrightStar Care, Padulo is focused on securing deals on a national or regional scope, either with Area Developers in Canada to own and operate multiple locations at a time, or Master Franchisees, who can sub-franchise after opening two to five of their own.
BrightStar Care has the capability to open more than 100 units in Canada throughout the Atlantic Provinces, British Colombia, Ontario and Quebec thus far. The highest potential markets in Canada include Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal and Ottawa. For the second year in a row, the company was presented with the prestigious Enterprise Champion for Quality Award by The Joint Commission for its proven commitment to the highest level of clinical quality and safety.
