Largest Franchise Provider of Mobility and Accessibility Equipment
Announces Plans for Development in Northern and Southern California to
Meet Increased Demand

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–101
Mobility
, the only franchise provider of mobility and accessibility
equipment, is expecting accelerated franchise growth in the state of
California. As a greater percentage of the population hits the age of
65, the company expects to be operating in 15 additional territories in
California by the end of 2017.

101 Mobility is looking for franchisees who are ready to scale up their
business and owner-operators in less-densely populated areas to develop
the brand in small markets. With four franchise owners already operating
in the state, 101 Mobility has 25+ available territories available
spanning from San Diego north to Los Angeles and San Francisco.

“California has the unique distinction of having the largest population
of people over the age of 65,” said Dave Pazgan, co-founder CEO of 101
Mobility. “The aging population has a diverse set of mobility needs that
need to be met if they are going to remain in their homes and most
people aren’t sure where to go for help. Before 101 Mobility, families
were often frustrated that there wasn’t a reliable local provider that
would be there to guide them every step of the way. Our local
franchisees work with hospitals, organizations and with homeowners
directly to bring the right solutions to homes and businesses in
California and across North America.”

Franchisee Virgil Moore opened his San Jose 101 Mobility location in
2014 and has since expanded into four territories in the area. Moore,
who didn’t have any previous experience in the industry discovered 101
Mobility and thought it fell in-line with his management and technical
training background. In his first year, his franchise brought in 30
percent more sales revenue than he estimated and he projects
double-digit growth again in 2016.

“This work is truly rewarding and 101 Mobility has great relationships
with VA hospitals in the area which really helped get our franchise off
the ground and running,” said Moore, noting that in his first year, the
local VA accounted for 70 percent of his revenue but since then the
retail side of his business has become his biggest revenue-creator. “The
rental program has also been another game changer. We’re able to help
people with short-term disabilities live comfortably in their homes
while going through rehab. Our customers appreciate that we go the extra
mile to make the experience as painless as possible.”

Since its founding in 2008, the company has expanded into 145
territories nationwide and expects to reach 100 additional franchise
owners in the next three years. The spending power of the wealthiest
retired population in the history of the country is one of the factors
that has driven 101 Mobility to a 93 percent increase in revenue between
2013 and 2015. With these fortuitous conditions, ambitious entrepreneurs
have the opportunity to fill a niche and build something bigger than
themselves in a rewarding and profitable industry.
