By the year 2050, 20 percent of the U.S. population — nearly 90 million people — will be 65 and older. Baby Boomers have ushered in a spike in the senior population that will continue into Generation X. And most Americans in their retired years would prefer to stay at home.
But, there’s one significant challenge the growing aging population faces: Sixteen million U.S. seniors have at least one disability threatening their hopes of remaining in a home they love.
Enter GreenLight Mobility, a new franchise model founded by a physical and occupational therapist couple and a seasoned franchise executive that makes homes safe and accessible for seniors and people with disabilities.
“This market is rapidly expanding both because of an aging population that desires the freedom of staying at home and an evolving healthcare system that aims to get people out of rehab centers and back home,” said Karen Frank, CEO and co-founder of GreenLight Mobility. “After growing our business across New Jersey, we want to provide others with the same opportunity that has helped us serve a population in need and build our own business.”
Because of their flexible model and experience, GreenLight Mobility offers customers everything from modular ramp systems, grab bars, door-widening, stair lifts, walk-in showers, ceiling lift systems and more. The GreenLight Mobility corporate team has expertise in physical and occupational therapy as well as construction and choosing mobility solutions for every type of need, which will prove valuable for franchise owners.
GreenLight Mobility Franchise Co-Founder Kathleen Kuhn brings over 30 years of franchise leadership and know-how in creating successful business owners. She’s helped more than 500 business owners achieve financial independence through franchise ownership.
GreenLight Mobility’s affiliate business in New Jersey has witnessed a more than 25 percent increase in revenue over the past two years and consistent year-over-year growth since launching in 2007. With low overhead — no need for expensive retail leases — franchise owners can run a home modification business from home with just a small warehouse for products. Initial franchise fees are $43,500, but GreenLight Mobility is offering a $5,000 discount to the first four owner-operators.
The GreenLight Mobility franchise opportunity is ideal for people with management experience in the healthcare industry who want to control their own destiny, or for people who have experience in management or sales who see the demand in this growing industry. Franchises are available immediately in New York, Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania.
