FranchiseGrade.com has published the annual Home Care Franchises Sector Report, highlighting the best investment opportunities among 69 unique franchise systems

London, ON – FranchiseGrade.com, the Authority on Franchising, has released the annual Home Care Franchises Sector Report, which examines the investment risks and opportunities of 69 individual Home Care franchise systems in the United States. The 30-page report offers prospective investors an in-depth analysis of data from the Franchise Performance Index™.

Each of the 69 franchise systems that were included in the report was assigned a grade from A+ to F, summarizing various aspects of their performance for prospective franchisee investors. Of those franchises, 15 achieved a grade of A or A+, which qualifies them as Made The GradeTM (MTG) franchises. When compared to the remaining Home Care franchises – those that received grades of B or lower — the MTG franchises represented 21% of the Home Care franchises, but accounted for 38% of the sector growth.

“This report is the latest step we’re taking to provide franchise investors with the most thorough and comprehensive analysis of individual franchise system performance available in the franchise industry” said Jeff Lefler, CEO of Franchise Grade. “The information in this report gives prospective franchisees the guidance they need to invest with confidence in the Home Care franchise industry, by pinpointing the best performing systems.”
