Sunrise, FL - August 9, 2010 - Local couple from Tyler, Texas are furthering their entrepreneurial spirit and opening the first East Texas Interim HealthCare, the nation's first and finest healthcare and in-home senior care franchise company. The office is located at 1021 E SE Loop 323, Ste 300, and locally owned by Texas native Danny Malone, Certified Senior Advisor and his wife Nancy.
With a network of more than 300 independently owned franchises across the country, Interim HealthCare focuses on providing medical care, non-medical personal care and support services, and healthcare staffing services. The company is in the midst of an aggressive growth campaign designed to increase its U.S. presence over time. The Malones are the first new franchisees to open as a result of Interim HealthCare's recently revitalized franchising program.
A grand opening celebration for the entire community will take place at the Tyler location from 4 pm - 6 pm on Wednesday, August 11th. Interim's CEO Kathleen Gilmartin will be joining the Malones to meet the community and introduce their products and services.
The new office provides a variety of personal care services including transportation, meal preparation, light housekeeping, bathing and grooming. In addition, the Tyler Interim HealthCare location offers the company's unique, HomeLife EnrichmentSM program which provides an experience that engages seniors and allows them to contribute to a lifestyle that is not only safe and independent, but one that is enriched with meaning and self-worth.
"After being in the corporate world for more than 20 years, I finally decided to put my strengths and passions into owning my own business," said Danny Malone, owner and operator of Tyler's Interim HealthCare. "We looked at several different franchise systems, and finally chose Interim HealthCare for their unique and exciting business opportunity which also allows us to give back to the community and make positive impacts on others."
Danny and Nancy worked and traveled the globe, but after marrying in 2004, they returned to Texas to be closer to family, enjoy the recreational opportunities available in East Texas and to begin their search for the perfect business. They reflected back on their lives and identified the things that had a meaningful impact. Both of them had similarities and struggles while caring for loved ones, and this experience led them to improve the lives of caregivers and the elderly.
"Interim HealthCare is proud to welcome the Malones into our franchise system," said Kathleen Gilmartin, President and CEO of Interim HealthCare. "Their passion for our work coupled with their business savvy will benefit the clients and families they serve throughout the East Texas area. They represent the first of many new franchisees focused on in-home personal care and support services that will join our system this year."
The Tyler, Texas Interim HealthCare office is open from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm Monday - Friday. The office can also be reached 24 hours a day, seven days a week by calling 903.705.4776 or toll free at 877.205.7729. The office will also provide complimentary in-home evaluations for those interested in more about Interim's services.
Currently with more than 40 locations in Texas, Interim is looking to expand its presence throughout the country. Qualified candidates should possess a minimum net worth of $400,000, and a minimum liquidity of $50,000. Franchisees can expect their initial investment to range from approximately $115,500 to $188,500 including the franchise fee.
