As we look to continue our rapid growth across the United States, we are looking for more franchisees like Bruce. We want people who are committed to the franchise, to their community and to the well-being of their clients. – Caring Transitions COO Al Scobell
March 13, 2018
When Caring Transitions first started franchising 12 years ago, Bruce Treadway of Northern Illinois was the first one to sign on. He recognized the need for senior relocation and estate liquidation services and decided to give the fledging company a try.
Treadway’s dedication and commitment to excellence has earned his franchise more than the respect of his market. In 2017, Treadway broke the record for Caring Transitions liquidations by bringing in online auctions with a fair market value of more than $1 million for the year.
Caring Transitions, America’s largest resource for managing senior relocations as well as downsizing and estate liquidations, is a national franchise in more than 200 markets. Caring Transitions’ specially-trained team can handle organizing, packing, de-cluttering, moving, resettling, in-person and online estate sales, liquidations and preparing homes for market. Caring Transitions specializes in managing senior relocations, but the services are also perfect for busy families and individuals in need of assistance.
“Although different franchisees find success in different aspects of what we do depending on their market and their passion, Bruce has always been a pace setter for liquidations. He is a leader in the industry and exemplifies the Caring Transitions owner in many ways. He is a leader in our organization not just because he was our first franchisee, but because of his desire to build the brand and his commitment to excellence and his ability to build relationships with his clients though trust and respect,” Caring Transitions COO Al Scobell said.
“As we look to continue our rapid growth across the United States, we are looking for more franchisees like Bruce. We want people who are committed to the franchise, to their community and to the wellbeing of their clients,” Scobell added.
Caring Transitions’ services are perfect for seniors moving in with family or into a safer living situation as well as busy families and people clearing out the home of a loved one who has passed. All of Caring Transitions’ services are customizable, so clients only pay for the services they need – whether that means managing the entire move and estate-clearing or just getting someone resettled into their new place.
Recent studies show that the senior market will grow exponentially over the next 30 years and will continue to grow for many years to come. By 2060, the population of people over the age of 65 will grow by 39 percent.
“This growth puts Caring Transitions in a great position because our business is uniquely designed to help seniors and families through sometimes challenging transitions. What we do is not just about the physical services, but also the emotional support,” Scobell said. “As an added bonus, when our franchisees hold estate sales, we are often able to hand the client a check instead of just a bill when the work is complete.”
Treadway said he first opened Caring Transitions because he saw the growing need for the kinds of services the company offers. He also saw an opportunity to live a different kind of life.
“I saw a very bright future ahead for our service-based business and it’s only getting brighter. I have the flexibility and the freedom to attend all of my son’s and daughter’s sporting events and practices, I don’t miss school concerts or recitals, I don’t skip parent-teacher conferences. I am grateful for the lifestyle my Caring Transitions business affords me and I’m looking forward to the future of the brand – not just for me, but for every franchisee and every client,” Treadway said.
