The magazine recently recognized Comfort Keepers as the #1 franchise within the senior care category as well as #59 among the top 500 franchises.

It's something all of us at our office, as well as the 700+ locations around the world, can be proud of. However, Williams is equally quick to add, "Ultimately, it is what we do each and every day that matters most: we help seniors to live independently within the comfort of their own homes."
Entrepreneur's 34th Annual Franchise 500 ranking reveals the impact of the newest trends and the industries poised for growth. All companies, regardless of size, are judged by the same criteria: objective, quantifiable measures of the franchise operation. The most important factors include financial strength and stabilty, growth rate and size of the system. According to Entrepreneur, the Franchise 500 shows that many of the most competitive companies are those that go after a specific demographic. Among the top growing demographic categories, national, is senior care. The continued growth of the senior population bodes well for franchise organizations like Comfort Keepers.
