Once you’ve decided to buy a franchise, the options are endless. If you have narrowed it down to a business focused on health and/or aging markets, then you should consider a 101 Mobility franchise. We may be a bit biased, but here’s why we think 101 Mobility should be at the top of your list.
- Sustainable Business Model
101 Mobility carries a full scope of mobility products ranging from stairlifts and wheelchair ramps to wheelchair lifts and patient lifts. Our market includes aging seniors and people with physical disabilities. An estimated 30.6 million Americans currently experience difficulty climbing the stairs or require the use of an assistive device.1 The demand for mobility products is expected to grow along with our aging population. In fifteen years, 20% of all Americans will be senior citizens.2
- Franchisees Keep Investing
Seventy-five percent of our franchisees own multiple territories. When a franchisee is performing well in an existing territory, they typically take the opportunity to grow and expand into new territories.
- Well-defined Training and Operating Procedures
We offer multi-level training on products, installation, account management, business development practices, and marketing. Our owners have backgrounds in business, leadership, construction, and a variety of corporate environments. Some of our best owners had no industry experience whatsoever. All franchisees undergo an immersive two-week-long training program and additionally receive the support of dedicated field specialists. 101 Mobility franchisees also benefit from our proprietary Mobilink® software that tracks inventory, maps appointments, configures invoices, and much more.
- Powerhouse Marketing Support
Our in-house staff of friendly and enthusiastic experts collaborates every day on how to add value to 101 Mobility franchisees. From a search engine optimized website launch and an initial business development blitz to ongoing print materials and localized public relations/social media consulting, 101 Mobility aims to provide franchisees with the tools to help them build successful businesses.
- Differentiation from Competition
As 101 Mobility’s national footprint continues to expand, so does the scope of local sales and support offered to the customer. Due to large and growing economies of scale, our price points are among the best in the industry.
“If you don’t love what you do, do something else,” 101 Mobility’s President Dave Pazgan says. Passion for our industry and the people who are our customers along with drive, hard work, and perseverance are key. If you like to have a laugh on the job and don’t mind seeing a yellow Labrador named Steel around the corporate office on Discovery Day, you may find yourself in good company.
