  • Over the past two weeks, we examined the financial performance representations of 12 different senior home care franchises. In addition, late last year, we analyzed the earnings claims of BrightStar Care, another top franchise in the category. Since their Item 19 disclosures are very similar, we decided to do a cross-analysis of the featured franchises instead of analyzing each one separately, to avoid repetition.
  • The following are some common themes underlying most of the senior home care franchises we’ve covered:

1. The estimated initial investment to open a senior home care franchise is relatively low given the significant revenue potential of the business. Most senior care franchises can be started for less than $100,000, with the biggest expense being the initial franchise fee. BrightStar Care has the highest start-up costs, which can run as high as $168,102.
