Karen Frank – Franchisor and Owner of GreenLight Mobility
The perfect prospective franchisee would be someone who
is handy but someone who is very sympathetic towards people with disabilities. Someone who wants to own their own business and make
a difference in their community.
Karen Frank is the owner of GreenLight Mobility, a home safety and mobility franchise out of New Jersey. She is a trained physical therapist who, after years of working in the field, realized there was a need to help people live out at home safely — and to encourage people to be proactive as they age, making decisions that help them stay at home for a long period of time after retirement. Karen discusses launching a new franchise in the growing aging and senior living space.
