Interim HealthCare Inc. Ranks No. 1 in Senior Care for Fifth Consecutive Year on Entrepreneur’s 2023

For more than 50 years, the First in Home Care™ company has maintained consistent growth, bolstered by its full continuum of home healthcare offerings and franchise support services


SUNRISE, Fla. – January 31, 2023

Interim HealthCare Inc., the nation’s leading franchise network of home care, senior care, home health, hospice and healthcare staffing services, ranked No. 1 in the Senior Care category of Entrepreneur’s 44th annual Franchise 500®. Overall, the company ranked No. 55 in its fifth consecutive appearance on the list, moving up from its 2022 placement (No. 56). The Franchise 500® is the world’s first, best, and most comprehensive franchise ranking.


With a decades-long history as one of the most experienced franchise brands, Interim HealthCare’s full continuum of services represent a trusted source of home healthcare and a rewarding business opportunity. To meet growing demand, Interim HealthCare signed 34 new offices across the country in 2022 and worked to recruit and retain skilled caregivers through its award-winning “Made For This” recruitment campaign, which connects jobseekers from across industries with a rewarding career in home healthcare.


“We are proud to provide business opportunities through our franchise network that are both personally and financially rewarding,” said Jennifer Sheets, president and CEO of Interim HealthCare. “Over 55 years of experience has given our team unique insight into how to build a thriving home healthcare franchise and the guidance and support needed to succeed. As we push forward working to meet increased patient demand for care within the home, we look forward to continued collaboration with new and multi-generational Interim HealthCare franchise owners.”


Over its 44 years in existence, the Franchise 500® has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for potential franchisees. Interim HealthCare’s position on the ranking is a testament to its strength as a franchise opportunity.


“The past year underscores the extraordinary opportunities that the franchise industry presents for entrepreneurs of all levels,” says Entrepreneur editor-in-chief Jason Feifer. “The companies named to our 44th annual Franchise 500 list represent some of the most innovative, creative, and trusted brands across many industries and highlight what it takes to build the kind of momentum that drives long- lasting success.”


Interim HealthCare played a pivotal role advocating for the home healthcare industry during the last year amid proposed cuts to Medicare home health funding for 2023. Throughout 2022, CEO and President Jennifer Sheets had numerous meetings with key legislators and legal teams, members of the Senate and House, CMS leadership and President Biden's office, which culminated in the drafting and introduction of the bipartisan Preserving Access to Home Health Act of 2022, currently making its way through Congress. The company’s work to elevate the home healthcare industry, experienced franchise support network and demonstrated business value has attracted multiple new owners in 2022. Additional highlights from this past year include:

  • Acknowledgement for Interim HealthCare president and CEO Jennifer Sheets around her home healthcare advocacy work in which she was awarded Maverick of the Year at the 19th annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business. She also received a Silver Stevie in the “Women of the Year – Consumer Services” category at the 2022 American Business Awards® where she was applauded for exponentially expanding the network of Interim HealthCare franchises.
  • Ranking No. 22 on Entrepreneur’s 2022 Top Global Franchises list, which highlights businesses looking to grow outside of the United States by increasing their footprint and establishing franchises in more countries and territories.
  • Elevating its HomeLife Enrichment® standard of care through unveiling new caregiver guides for COPD and senior care. These comprehensive resources are integral to the holistic care of patients that supports the mind, body, spirit and family.
  • Continuing to celebrate healthcare workers’ commitment and dedication amid industry shortages and challenges through innovative campaigns to unify messages of appreciation for nurses and caregivers.


In Entrepreneur’s continuing effort to best understand and evaluate the ever-changing franchise marketplace, the company’s 44-year-old ranking formula continues to evolve as well. The editorial team researches and assesses several factors that go into the evaluation including costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. Each franchise is given a cumulative score based on an analysis of more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500® in ranking order.
