The care-focused parent company awarded 18 locations over the past three months.
Best Life Brands, the parent company of four care-centric franchises specializing in at-home care and liquidation services, awarded 18 new franchise locations in 14 U.S. states and Canada across the months of June, July, and August. This adds to the organization’s 400-plus locations already operating throughout these two key regions.
“After record growth in April, we continue to see a surge in interest from franchisee candidates who recognize the demand for services that cater to a rapidly aging population,” said J.J. Sorrenti, CEO of Best Life Brands. “When COVID-19 hit, we immediately took steps to pivot our business, taking aspects virtual and making sure to share best practices across our network of three brands. It hasn’t always been easy for us and our franchisees, but the pandemic has made our business stronger and smarter as we move into the second half of 2020.”
Best Life Brands experienced record franchise growth during April 2020, which resulted in a 200 per cent increase in growth when compared to the same period last year. This was across all four of its brands: ComForCare, At Your Side, CarePatrol, and Blue Moon Estate Sales.
Of the 18 new locations awarded this summer, Best Life Brands is welcoming six new locations for CarePatrol in Happy Valley, OR; Fayetteville, AR; Louisville, KY; Portland, OR; Huntington, NY; and Miami, FL; five new ComForCare owners signed for locations in Baltimore, MD; Chicago, IL; Memphis, TN; Nashville, TN; and Richmond-Markham, Ontario; and Blue Moon Estate Sales awarded four new locations in Perrysburg, OH; Buckhead, GA; Denver, CO; Columbia, SC; and three locations in Minneapolis, MN.
“As we look to the future of Best Life Brands, our focus on the wellness and well-being of our clients will be much broader and deeper on the care continuum,” said Sorrenti. “We have so many opportunities in our three existing brands and we will be selective and strategic as we continue to expand.”
