Scottsdale-based Assisted Living Locators, a leading senior care referral and placement agency, has reached its 100th franchise milestone. According to a recent study by FRANdata, only 22% of brands have reached 100 units over the past 5 years.

Assisted Living Locators breaks into the triple digits after a decade of consecutive growth, including an unprecedented franchise recruitment rate over the past two years.  As the first senior placement and referral franchise business in the U.S., the company has pioneered its way to a national presence with 103 franchisees in 33 states and the District of Columbia.

Assisted Living Locators awarded this landmark 100th franchise to John Weber, its Wichita, KS, franchise owner who will be expanding his business footprint to Topeka, KS.

“The hallmark of a successful business model is when your existing franchisees invest in more territories,” said Angela Olea, Assisted Living Locators’ CEO. “Our franchisees recognize the value of owning Assisted Living Locators territories, which is a true testament to their confidence in our company.”

Mark Alivero, Assisted Living Locators COO, added, “I also credit our investment in a proprietary, custom CRM platform, Assisted Living Locators Integrated Network (ALL-IN™), as well as our increased focus on franchisee training and support, business processes and lead generation expansion, as the building blocks of our success.”

“We have a proven business model that is attracting qualified candidates to become business owners in the dynamic senior care market,” said Olea.

“The growth rate in the assisted living industry is unprecedented,” she explained. “Revenues are currently at $12-15 billion per year and are expected to increase. Every day in America, there are tens of thousands of families searching for assisted living homes and communities for their elderly parents. Our aim is to recruit business-minded franchisees who have a passion for helping this growing senior population.”
