Comfort Keepers has been nationally recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine's Annual Franchise 500 rankings for 2014. The magazine recently recognized Comfort Keepers as the No. 1 franchise within the senior care category as well as No. 59 among the top 500 franchises.

Robert Smolen, owner of Comfort Keepers in McKinney-Allen, is thrilled about this accomplishment, indicating, "This kind of recognition among all franchises, nationally, is rare. It's something all of us at our office, as well as the 700+ locations around the world, can be proud of. 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."

Kat O’Toole, General Manager, adds, “Our continuum of care from Hospital to Home has helped reduce the readmit issues in our industry and truly complements our local Home Health resources.”

Entrepreneur's 35th 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 and quantifiable measures of the franchise operation. The most important factors include financial strength and stability, 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, nationally, is senior care. The continued growth of the senior population bodes well for franchise organizations like Comfort Keepers.
