BrightStar Senior Living of Madison franchise owners Jeff Tews and Susan Rather were recently named in CNBC’s top 50 franchise success stories.

“There are close to 3,000 franchise companies in the United States collectively contributing more than $1 trillion annually to the economy,” the article said. “That said, it was no easy task to crown 50 franchise business owners — one for each U.S. state — as America’s Star Franchisees.”

Jeff Tews and Susan Rather have been part of the BrightStar family since 2006 when they opened the BrightStar Care franchise in Madison.  Their business grew fast and they opened additional offices in Janesville, Baraboo and LaCrosse WI.  Jeff and Susan have been named BrightStar’s “Franchisees of the Year” twice.  Their home care and medical staffing operations are recognized in the industry for their excellence and are accredited by the Joint Commission.

“Our ability to offer skilled, personal attention is a valuable differentiator of BrightStar Senior Living. When other senior care organizations have difficulty accommodating complex medical cases, we can confidently say ‘yes’ and offer a better standard of living,” says Rather. “With a growing senior population in our area, there’s an unbelievable demand for advanced care, including end of life and in times of extreme need.”

More than 28,500 individual franchisees, representing 364 franchise brands, were vetted by CNBC’s research partner Franchise Business Review to gauge satisfaction with their franchise system and significant financial success, including an income and return on investment that is above the industry average.  To see what it took for these entrepreneurs to succeed, read the America’s Star Franchisees full methodology.
