“Franchising is a great opportunity, but you have to research everything there is to know about brands you are interested in,” says Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “How satisfied current franchisees are is one of the most important things to find out.”
Entrepreneur magazine has alsoo recognized CarePatrol in their annual Franchise500 ranking. Entrepreneur magazine is the creme de la cream of Franchise system rankings year after year. CarePatrol ranked at #247 this year, up from every past year and over 100 companies above their nearest Franchise competitor. Being that there are an estimated 5,000 franchise systems in the nation, this puts CarePatrol in the Top 5% of all franchises for franchisee satisfaction and overall quality and strength of the franchise brand system.
According to CEO and Certified Franchise Executive, Chuck Bongiovanni, “CarePatrol has been the #1 Senior Placement Franchise year after year because we truly have an incredible franchise community culture. We spend a great deal of revenue not only supporting, but challenging our franchisees to become the best they can be for the families that they serve.” CarePatrol’s franchisees strive and supersede that goal every year.

They are the only senior assisted living placement agency to directly contract with local hospitals and ACOs for their services. Bongiovanni plans on adding an additional 100 hospitals, ACOs and insurance companies to that number in 2017. Bongiovanni adds that the company’s success comes from passionate franchisees and an excellent system model that puts families first.

Miracle Grows: Fast-Growing Franchises to Keep On Your Radar

Chuck Bongiovanni was feeling mildly annoyed when his franchise, CarePatrol, sold only four units in one month last year. That’s when he realized things were actually going great. Really great. “Sometimes I have to slap myself,” he says. “I have to remember that in our second year we only sold four units total!”
Now in its fifth year of business, the Arizona-based franchise, which helps seniors find assisted-living facilities, has 125 units across the U.S. and added 60 units in 2014 alone. It’s a meteoric rise for a franchise system. But while growth is positive when it comes to the economy in general, in franchising it can come with extra baggage. A new brand that doesn’t grow quickly and doesn’t generate enough buzz can be seen as a bad bet. But one that grows too quickly, adding dozens or hundreds of units out of the gate, could be a red flag that the founders are more interested in pocketing franchise fees than in helping their franchisees get off the ground and maintain successful businesses. Then there are the systems like CarePatrol, which have found the sweet spot between rapid growth and smart growth.
For Bongiovanni, this wasn’t an accident. “We spent the first three years getting our system down, and planned for slower growth,” he explains. “Once we had our system and key employees in place, that’s when we decided to ramp things up and speed development.”
The key to making it happen, and to not being overwhelmed by so many new franchisees, is CarePatrol’s training program. Franchisees are trained at corporate headquarters for a week and in their home territory for at least a week before undergoing a 16-week intensive coaching program.
“Our franchisees joke and call it our ‘forced success program,’” says Bongiovanni. “We typically have six franchisees a month going through training. Providing all that front-end support is how we’ve been able to do so well.”
CarePatrol CEO Invited To Speak at National Readmission Prevention Conference In Southern California
(May 2014 Gilbert, AZ) CarePatrol Chief Executive Officer, Chuck Bongiovanni was invited to speak in this summer’s Southern California National Readmission Prevention Collaborative Conference to discuss “How Choosing The Right Assisted Living Option Can Reduce Hospital Readmission” . Multiple studies indicate that approximately 20% of Medicare patients are readmitted to a hospital within one month of discharge. The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has found this number to be excessive. Many argue that the quality of care provided is not adequate for persons in one particular group. In fact, much of hospital spending and readmissions is for a small percentage of high-cost Medicare beneficiaries who tend to be older and have multiple chronic conditions.
A 2013 study sponsored by CarePatrol produced a 45% reduction in readmission rates for this elderly group simply by placing the patients in the proper care environment; Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) that have the operational capability to properly care for the elderly patients’ broad range of chronic conditions.

CarePatrol Services Proven To Lower Medicare Hospital Readmission Rates.
(Gilbert, AZ) The Affordable Care Act of 2010 requires the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to establish a Readmission Reduction Program for the nations’ hospitals to reduce the high cost of readmissions that are ultimately paid by Medicare. Currently, about 20% of Medicare patients are readmitted to a hospital within one month of discharge. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has deemed that number unacceptable and believes that readmissions are a direct indicator of quality of care.
CarePatrol, the nation’s largest franchised assisted living placement firm, has instituted a readmission reduction program of their own that has proven to lower Medicare readmission rates by 45% for a hospital that utilized CarePatrol’s services, according to a recent study conducted by an independent research firm in Arizona. CarePatrol helps families find assisted living, independent living and memory care communities that meet a patient’s medical, social, geographical, financial and personal care needs. A care provider qualifies for inclusion in the CarePatrol provider network only upon showing that the provider is in compliance with state regulations and has a clean violation record.
