Our Process

Finding the right fit!

A franchise relationship is a partnership for success. That’s why we’ve created a franchise awarding process designed to determine if BrightStar Care is the right fit for you—and if you’re the right fit for us. Our process involves the following steps:

  1. Review the BrightStar Care International Website.

    The best way to get to know us is to learn about who we are, the industry in which we operate and the clients we serve. You’ll find all of this and more on our informative and easy-to-navigate website. Make sure you review the entire site.

  2. Speak with Dean Ulizio, EVP of Global Strategic Development.

    As a member of our senior leadership team, Dean can help you better understand BrightStar Care and this international franchise opportunity. Dean’s expertise in franchise development and the expanding global senior care industry will help you better understand our business and this exciting opportunity. What’s more, Dean and other members of our BrightStar Care team will continue to be available to you for follow-up calls throughout this process.

  3. Discovery Day.

    You’ll travel to the BrightStar Care headquarters in Gurnee, Illinois, 30 mins. north of Chicago O’Hare International Airport. There, you’ll meet our key senior executives and learn firsthand about our business and vision.

  4. Self-Evaluation

    Once you’ve met us in person and learned more about BrightStar Care, it’s time to take stock. How well does the BrightStar Care opportunity match your lifestyle, personal goals and experiences?

  5. BrightStar Care visits your market.

    Select members of the BrightStar Care team will visit your designated market to learn more about the opportunities and challenges you will face—and how we can support your successful development

  6. Sign Agreements.

    Once you and the BrightStar Care team agree you’re a match, you will be awarded the opportunity to join us and the necessary legal agreements will be signed.

  7. Pre-Opening Training.

    Your journey to success begins! Once the franchise agreement is signed, you will attend pre-opening training—the first step in an ongoing training process that will guide you to reaching your business goals.
