The international mobility specialist has tapped a franchising expert to run future expansion strategies.
101 Mobility, an international provider of mobility and accessibility solutions in the U.S. and Canada, has appointed Mark Baker as its new president.
Baker’s background is filled with valuable experience, both in franchising and beyond. In fact, his 20 years of military service was where Baker gained much of his leadership expertise; serving on active duty in the U.S. Army as an infantry officer, he retired from the U.S. Army Reserve at the rank of lieutenant colonel.
Civilian life led him toward a career in the franchise industry, and has now found him at the head of a brand that strives to serve those in need of help.
“101 Mobility has a great network, and we hope to have a presence in every state,” said Baker. “We intend to make this a household name. Every community needs someone like us, and 101 Mobility’s franchise owners make a difference in people’s lives. As we get repeat business, our reputation will precede our work – and that helps our franchisees grow.”
The 101 Mobility offering consists of several accessibility solutions, including stairlifts, wheelchair ramps, and even home elevators. The brand already has a presence in 30 states, and several locations in Canada.
Over the next three years, Baker hopes to at least double the size of 101 Mobility’s current system, and anticipates adding 60 more franchisees through likeminded, strategic partnerships with entrepreneurial professionals.
