A new territory in Ontario spearheads Canadian growth.
Always Best Care Senior Services, a U.S. senior care franchise concept, has announced the awarding of its first Canadian master franchise agreement to long-time Ontario resident Steve Kelly.
As part of the agreement, Kelly will oversee Always Best Care’s Canadian development, specifically in the province of Ontario. He is opening the brand’s newest location in Oakville, Ontario, with plans to provide further care to communities such as Mississauga, Burlington, Hamilton, and Milton.
“We’re happy to welcome Steve on board to oversee our franchise development and franchise support efforts across Ontario as our first master franchisee in Canada. With a passion for helping others, we’re excited to see his opening of a franchise unit as well, which will strengthen his efforts to support other franchise units as he represents Always Best Care on the ground in Ontario,” said Jake Brown, president and CEO of Always Best Care.
“We’re confident that his past professional experience will be a true asset to our brand as we aim to expand our presence across the Ontario province. We look forward to Steve’s future success, both as the owner of his individual franchise unit and as a master franchisee selling and supporting other independently owned franchise units.”
Steven Kelly has been a resident of Oakville, Ontario for more than 30 years. Before joining Always Best Care, he had a career in financial markets for three decades, most recently holding the position of MD at CIBC Capital Markets.
“When I lost my job earlier this year due to restructuring, I knew that in my next venture I wanted to work directly with people and make a positive impact on their lives. Always Best Care’s altruistic proposition and proven business model have equipped me with the tools to do just that, offering award-winning services that help individuals and their loved ones live their best possible life,” said Kelly. “Our mission is to enable seniors to have a safe home life with comfort, independence, dignity and joy, and our dedicated caregivers will enable us to provide the highest quality of service. I’m thrilled to grow this brand in Ontario and look forward to networking with like-minded entrepreneurs who are looking to serve as a valued resource to their communities.”
Founded in 1996, Always Best Care currently operates more than 200 franchise territories throughout the U.S. and Canada, providing millions of hours of care every year.
