101 Mobility Opens First Franchise in D.C. Metro Market

New Company Fills Niche for Empowering the Elderly & Disabled in D.C. & Northern Virginia

Life-long resident Matt Riordan is the owner/operator of 101 Mobility®'s new 101 Mobility® Franchise serving the D.C. Metro market and Northern Virginia. Riordan brings over a decade in franchise development experience having worked on both sides of the business (franchisor and franchisee). Riordan grew up in Alexandria and has a long history of working and living in this fast-paced market. When asked why he chose the 101 Mobility® brand, he said, “I evaluated over 100 franchises over the past five years and wanted something that serviced the growing senior demographic and allowed me to use my business and marketing experience and entrepreneur passion. I felt like I hit a “home run” when I learned more about the 101 business model and brand.”

The 101 brand is one of the nation’s fastest-growing and leading mobility solutions providers. It is “solution-driven” and offers a “one-stop-shop” approach to anyone with accessibility or mobility needs. Riordan and his team will work closely to serve the needs of America’s Veterans, people seeking to age-in-place and/or increase their ability to move freely inside and outside their homes. He will also work closely with caregivers, churches, non-profit organizations and commercial businesses. “That is the rewarding part. I can help people live fuller lives by staying in their own homes and increasing the quality of their lives,” Riordan stressed.

The demand for mobility and accessibility products and services is growing rapidly as the population across the country and in key states like Virginia see significant growth in people age 65 and up. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Virginia is one of the fastest-growing markets for older demographics. The 2010 census reported a 40% increase in the population age 85 or greater and a 23% increase in the population age 65 and over from 2000 to 2012. For a perspective, the overall population grew 13% during that same time period. The D.C. metro area also saw growth in some of those areas.
