DALLAS-FT. WORTH — Caring Transitions, the franchise that provides older adults and their families with the most trusted, respected and comprehensive downsizing, right-sizing, estate sales and online auctions, and move management solutions in the industry, is continuing its recent momentum with the signing for a new location in Carrollton, Texas. In 2022, the brand signed over 40 new franchise owners and entered 20 new cities, making significant strides towards its goal of reaching 400 units in the next five years. So far this year, Caring Transitions has signed 12 new franchise agreements across the country. 

“Our growth just keeps getting better every year,” said Caring Transitions President Ray Fabik. “I hear phrases like pandemic-proof and recession-proof, and while I don’t like to use those words, our brand has certainly shown itself to be very resilient. We are really an essential service. When the economy turns even a little bit, people still need to take care of their parents. Our business continues to accomplish big things in light of whatever happens out there. When you look back at the last three years, it has been challenging, but we continue to have double-digit growth year after year.”

As the nation’s largest provider of senior-relocation services, Caring Transitions is increasingly making waves in the $832.8 billion industry, as there are very few businesses specifically equipped to help seniors move from their homes to a care facility or to manage the relocation or sale of all personal belongings. Caring Transitions helps seniors relocate by spending time at their homes, helping them pack and organize their belongings, then moving those belongings to the new home and setting them up in a way that feels comfortable. 

Willette Glenn, the franchise owner behind the new Carrollton signing, says they are excited to bring these much-needed services to their community. The deal was closed by Shawn Harrison, Director of Franchise Development.  

Glenn is a IT Director for Pepsico who thrives on building strong technical teams that have the ability to empathize with the customer to de-escalate situations and quickly resolve technical issues. Her emphasis on customer satisfaction has resulted in many awards and accolades throughout her 26 year career. Glenn resides in Little Elm, TX with her husband and their two daughters.  

Glenn joins a powerhouse group of owners in the North Dallas Suburbs. While the Fort Worth area is saturated with owners, there are still more opportunities to own a Caring Transitions in the metro-Dallas neighborhood. 

Now, with more and more qualified and passionate franchisees like Glenn signing on to join the system, Fabik says Caring Transitions shows no signs of slowing down. 

“We know that we have a great brand and that Caring Transitions ownership can be a great fit for someone who is tired of their corporate job and wants control of their own destiny, wants to own a business that is truly making a difference in communities, or wants to apply their skill set to working in the senior or auction space,” Fabik said. “Now, we want to accelerate growth because we believe there should be a Caring Transitions location in every market  to serve seniors and their families through life's stages.”

Caring Transitions has identified these states as priorities for franchise development: Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas and Vermont.
