Right at Home Named Top 100 Franchise for Veterans

November 12, 2012

OMAHA, NE – Right at Home, one of the nation’s leading senior home care franchises, is pleased to announce it has been named one of the top 100 franchises for veterans in Franchise Business Review’s special report, which was released this month.

“We are honored and humbled by this recognition from Franchise Business Review,” said Right at Home Chairman and CEO Allen Hager. “We are so proud of all of the veterans in the Right at Home family and firmly believe we offer one of the best, most rewarding franchise opportunities for our returning military heroes.”

In addition to a relatively low-cost startup investment, Right at Home is also a member of VetFran, which allows the brand to offer a 10 percent discount off the franchise fee, making it extremely appealing to veterans who look to continue their lives of service by serving those seniors in need in their communities.

“Because of their dedication to serving, we have many high performing veterans in our system,” continued Hager. “Being a member of VetFran and rewarding our veterans is something we strongly believe in.”

According to Franchise Business Review, the data for the report was compiled as part of the publication’s annual study on veterans and franchising, which “recognizes the top vet-friendly brands based on overall veteran franchisee satisfaction.” The publication surveys about 3,500 military-trained franchisees that represent 265 brands. Interviews with senior executives and franchisees at many of these brands help’s Franchise Business Review compile the final list of the 100 best franchise opportunities for veterans.


Right at Home, a privately held provider of in-home elder care and assistance, was founded in 1995 by Allen Hager, a hospital administrator who was concerned patients needed additional assistance after their discharge from the hospital. Before opening the first Right at Home office, Hager became a Certified Nursing Assistant to gain a better understanding of the care giving issues that families faced as their loved one returned home. Today, Right at Home generates more than $201 million in annual revenue through its 270-plus offices across the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Brazil and as the first in-home senior care franchise to enter China. Outlets are franchisee-owned and operated, and staff skilled professionals are trained to provide home-based care for thousands of clients daily.
