Through BoeFly, Veteran Secures Start-Up Loan to Open Senior Helpers Franchise

Jim and Karen McGee fulfilled their franchise ownership dream by opening a Senior Helpers.

Unlike most franchises, Senior Helpers isn’t looking for any ordinary entrepreneur. They’re looking for something a little bit different—someone with compassion, energy and a genuine love for taking a proven system and making it work.

The right individuals who can follow the Senior Helpers business model will be rewarded with not only a lucrative franchise financially, but one that lets franchisees measure their success by the number of families they’ve helped in a day. That’s what drew Jim McGee to Senior Helpers. As a Navy veteran, he understood the value in properly executing a system. He also understood how important it is to selflessly help others. Armed with previous business ownership experience, McGee and his wife, Karen, decided to fulfill their franchise dream by opening a Senior Helpers.

But before they could get their business off the ground, the McGees had to secure the financing needed to acquire a Senior Helpers. That’s when they turned to BoeFly.

“Both Karen and I are pleased to become business owners together,” McGee said. “By becoming Senior Helpers franchise owners, we are achieving our dream of business ownership, while serving our community. When we got started we were slightly anxious about the financing process, but thankfully Senior Helpers Introduced us to BoeFly. We received top service from our BoeFly financing expert who made securing our SBA loan easy. I would recommend BoeFly to anyone who needs business financing.”

For the McGee’s, having the dedicated team of financing experts with experience in working with veterans made it easier to get their business up and running.

"The BoeFly team is honored to have supported the McGee’s in securing the financing they needed to acquire the Senior Helpers Franchise,” said Mike Rozman, CEO of BoeFly. “In this case we were able to find a lender who was focused on helping veterans, which meant better terms for the McGees.”

With more than 270 franchised locations operating across the country, Senior Helpers is one of the largest in-home senior care companies in the United States. Founded in 2001 with a vision to help seniors who wish to remain in their homes despite age-related illnesses and mobility challenges, Senior Helpers has now cared for tens of thousands of seniors with a pledge to provide “care and comfort at a moment’s notice.” Senior Helpers offers a wide range of personal care and companion services, including trained Alzheimer’s, dementia and Parkinson’s care, to assist seniors who wish to live independently.

Today, the McGees are the proud owners of a Senior Helpers in Panama City, Florida. As a brand that’s already on the cusp of explosive growth, the support of BoeFly—and its ability to match the best, most qualified franchisees—has helped position Senior Helpers for success in the years to come.

"We’ve long been committed to supporting our new and existing franchisees,” said Craig Leonard, Senior Helpers President. “We’re delighted with how BoeFly was able to serve the financing needs of the McGees, our new Senior Helpers.”
