Always Best Care Senior Services Extends & Expands $2.6 Million Franchise Giveaway for Veterans
November 12, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsRoseville, CA – Always Best Care Senior Services announced today it is extending its contest to award a free franchise to military veterans in every state in the union – 51 free franchises (including the District of Columbia) worth more than $2.6 million – to run as a full-time program throughout 2014.*
In addition, Michael Newman, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Always Best Care, announced the company has made it easier for more veterans to take advantage of the opportunity by expanding the ways in which veterans may enter the contest. "Effective on Veterans Day, November 11th of this year, veterans will now have two ways to enter and win a free franchise," he explained. "The first is our original offer, in which a veteran creates and posts a three-minute video which includes a personal story outlining why the veteran believes he (or she) should be a winner and become an Always Best Care business owner, demonstrates their ability to apply former experience to the concept of business ownership, and illustrates their personal attributes, compassion for seniors and a driving desire to succeed.
"The second allows veterans to tell their stories in print with up to a 2,500-word essay and presentation which includes the same information requested in the video. It is our sincere hope," Mr. Newman concluded, "that with the extended time parameters and change in entry requirements, that we will fulfill our goal of awarding 51 new franchises to our nation's heroes."
Based in Roseville, CA just outside the state capitol in Sacramento, Always Best Care is one of the nation's leading providers of non-medical in-home care, assisted living services and skilled home health care. The company was named one of the best franchises for veterans by Military Times EDGE, one of the top 50 franchises for veterans by the World Franchising Network in USA Today, and one the Best of the Best top 100 franchises for veterans by Franchise Business Review.
"President Obama called for industry to create hundreds of thousands of new jobs for veterans," said Mr. Newman. "We're taking it a step further by providing not just a job, but a lifelong career opportunity that will allow our nation's heroes to build a business while making a real difference in people's lives."
According to Mr. Newman, veterans have the ability to understand processes and follow a plan – which is perhaps one of the most critically important attributes for success in franchising. In addition, veterans have the leadership skills and get-it-done attitude that Always Best Care is looking for in new franchisees
