Franchise Gator has named Caring Transitions as a Fastest Growing franchise for 2016 in conjunction with the release of its annual Top 100 list. The online franchise directory developed the rankings as a way for prospective franchisees to identify opportunities with strong growth potential that are also affordable investments for the average franchise buyer.
Caring Transitions is America’s largest resource for managing senior relocations as well as downsizing and estate liquidations with more than 160 locations throughout the country. In addition to organizing, packing, decluttering, moving and resettling, Caring Transitions can handle estate sales, liquidations, and preparing homes for market. Caring Transitions is part of the International Franchise Association, the Small Business Association’s Franchise Registry, VetFran and Minority Fran.
“Caring Transitions is thrilled to be recognized in Franchise Gator’s Top 100 list,” said Caring Transitions President, Chris Seman. “We’re happy to provide a much-needed service and a timely solution to challenges faced by the older segments of our population, which is increasing by the thousands every day. These new 65+ consumers need appropriate services to support their quality of life for the next 20 to 30 years, and all of our compassionate franchise owners take pride in helping families during difficult transitions.”
The Franchise Gator Fastest Growing list spotlights brands that are experiencing rapid expansion coming into the new year. “We identified 50 franchises this year for our Fastest Growing category,” said Eric Bell, General Manager of Franchise Gator. “The list is developed based on the number of opening and operating units a franchise has had over the past several months in addition to their track record for building a solid customer base and gaining the trust of investors.”
Caring Transitions is an extremely fast-growing franchise. In the past four years, the franchise has grown by 70 locations around the U.S. and sales have more than doubled. There has also been a dramatic increase in consumer revenue from $7 million in 2011 to $24 million in 2015. We are in the process of expanding our executive relocation assistance programs and we have made strides toward expanding internationally to neighboring countries like Canada.
According to Seman, “Sales of $34 million are projected in 2016. It’s truly exciting to be a part of this growing franchise.”
