BrightStar Care Sees Continued National and International Growth with Focus on Clinical Expertise, Accreditation
CHICAGO, Jan. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — By 2030, the number of Americans over the age of 65 will be roughly 79 million, with an average of 10,000 people reaching this aging milestone each day. This high demand, coupled with seniors electing to stay in their homes, explains the impressive growth of BrightStar Care.
Led by CEO and founder Shelly Sun, BrightStar Care is a national private duty home care and medical staffing franchise, based in Chicago, which provides medical and non-medical services to clients within their homes, as well as supplemental care staff to corporate clients. In 2017, Sun oversaw BrightStar Care opening 15 new locations, bringing the brand to 333 locations total. So far, the company already has 11 locations slated to open in 2018, with an additional 36 locations projected to be sold.
Sun also serves as the Chairwoman of the Board of Directors for the International Franchise Association (IFA). Sun authored the book “Grow Smart, Risk Less,” along with winning Entrepreneur of the Year from the IFA.
“A major part of BrightStar Care’s success over the past decade is our impressive accreditations. BrightStar Care is the only national home care franchise to receive The Joint Commission’s Enterprise Champion for Quality award every year since the award’s inception,” said Shelly Sun, CEO and Founder of BrightStar Care. “This higher-level standard of care is something our clients notice, and provides a solid business opportunity for our franchise partners. We’re thrilled with how far the brand has come, and look forward to our continued growth initiatives in 2018.”
Among BrightStar Care’s 2017 initiatives included launching a new mobile web platform to make client service paperless, increasing marketing support, and doubling the number of clinical staff due to the growing system and to ensure continued recognition of franchisees from the Joint Commission. One of the newest additions to the BrightStar Care team is Dave Campagna. As the Vice President of Franchise Development, Campagna will be a main component of the brand’s growth initiatives next year. In 2018, BrightStar Care plans to expand their family by bringing on an additional 36 quality franchise partners.
Receiving the 2017 ‘Best of Home Care Endorsed National Provider’ award from Home Care Pulse, BrightStar Care has more than 333 locations nationwide and recently inked its first international master franchise agreement to expand into Canada, with 65 BrightStar Care locations expected to be developed across all 10 provinces within the next five years.
