The senior market is exploding. 10,000 people will turn 65 years old every day for the next 20 years. Many boomers have lived in one home their entire adult lives, and a vast majority of them want to keep in that way. In fact, according to AARP, 87% of seniors want to stay in their homes as they age. This is where TruBlue comes in. As the population ages, their needs become greater. Where painting a fence or changing lightbulbs used to be relatively simple, these tasks can become more and more difficult. With TrueBlue, elderly homeowners know they can make one call to one company for a variety of services-giving them peace of mind in knowing they won't have multiple vendors and contractors in their home.
While TruBlue works to keep seniors in the home where they have all their memories, another major driver is assisting busy families, freeing up their time so they can make new memories together.

Training And Support
Initial training: This three-week course serves as launching pad to help new franchisees get up to speed on the TruBlue business, complete the necessary certification and obtain licenses, if needed, to begin operations.
Corporate Training: Before launch, new owners take part in the 5-day training session at the TruBlue headquarters in Cincinnati. During this week of onboarding, new franchisees are given all the information they need to be successful; including how to network to build referral partners, manage customer relationships and effectively market their business to the community through personal, digital, and direct marketing efforts. After training, new franchise owners will move forward with a new level of confidence.

"People ask us, 'Why didn't you just do this on your own?' The answer is because this franchise allows you to be 1,000 times bigger than you ever could be if you were starting out on your own. We went from just a few customers to a few hundred very quickly. We enjoy every single minute of this business."-Tim Diemont, Tru Blue of Yorktown.
This business allows you to be honest and make real money at the same time, which is a real blessing especially when you're just starting out. You begin to find very quickly that your customers are far more diverse than seniors. Busy families need our services just as badly as seniors who want to age in place, and our range of services make it easy to scale up pretty quickly. The corporate support is excellent. As someone who never owned a business before, I was worried about marketing, but they provide great marketing to us directly. In the coming years, I hope to be one of the top performing TruBlue franchisees in the country, and I know I'm going to get there."-Todd Cook, TruBlue of Winston-Salem
