A Personal Tragedy Led To A Franchise Solution
He comes from a family of doctors and medical professionals, but even David Giacobbo watched his loved ones pay the ultimate price from a poor level of care. His grandfather tragically died in a nursing home while restrained in a wheelchair. “When he tried to get up, it flipped and he broke his neck,” David recounted. And his grandmother broke her hip in her house even though there was a home care attendant there. She never recovered.
“The care that happened to both of my grandparents eventually led to their death,” recounts David. These personal tragedies inspired him to establish One You Love Homecare, provider of in-home care services. “That’s why this is near and dear to my heart.” Combining his passion for quality home care services, with a background in business, led to the Philadelphia-based company’s fiscal success as well, generating $2.9 million in revenue his first year and $3.6 million in year two. And that’s just in the home coverage area of Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
The company’s success can be attributed to David's hands-on approach with his clients. “All of my clients have my personal cell. I’m accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
The business has entered its third year. Franchising made perfect sense to David, who has expanded into new territories. Each territory demands the same level of personalized attention his clients deserve. One You Love Homecare deals strictly with private payers, keeping the client in control. “I want to make sure the quality of care is there as opposed to the quantity.”
The company is registered in 32 states and is poised for expansion into brand new territories, but David makes it clear that those simply seeking a passive income opportunity may not be a good fit.
“I’m not looking for absentee owners,” he said. “They’re going to be the face of their business.”
