Former NFL Player Tafa Jefferson on How Lessons Learned in Sports Drive Success in Franchising

The Chicago Bears player turned Amada Senior Care co-founder and CEO sits down for an exclusive interview with 1851 Franchise.

The connection between professional sports and franchising is one that we’ve continued to highlight on 1851 Franchise. Athletes who are familiar with following a playbook often have success in the industry since it’s built on replicating proven systems, and Tafa Jefferson, a former Chicago Bears player, is no exception.

After a career-ending injury forced Jefferson into early retirement from the NFL, he decided to pursue his entrepreneurial dreams. Having seen his mother work as a caregiver, he decided that he wanted to get into the senior health care space. That’s why in 2007, Jefferson and a business partner founded Amada Senior Care.

Since its founding, Amada Senior Care has grown to 100-plus franchise locations nationwide. In order to learn more about that growth — as well as Jefferson’s road to franchising — 1851 Franchise sat down with the former NFL player for an exclusive interview.
