The New Franchise Owner Supporting Michigan's Seniors

We are excited to announce the newest owner of Senior Helpers: Brett Higgs. Residents of Michigan, Brett and his wife, Becky, both work in the healthcare field. Brett is excited to invest in his family’s financial future and gain more control of his time and his schedule.

Who Is Brett Higgs?

Brett works as a traveling MRI technician and holds a degree in radiologic technology. He does the important job of producing high-quality MRI images for radiologist interpretation. While he loves that his career has given him the opportunity to help others, the long shifts and all of the travel made it more difficult to spend time with his family as his kids grow older and are involved in more activities that take them outside of the home.

Of all of his many successes, Brett considers his family his highest achievement. Being a husband and a father of three drives him to set a great example and show his kids and himself that anyone can create the life they’ve been dreaming of.

Why Did Brett Make a Career Change?

While he is proud of his 17 years as an MRI tech, Brett was looking for an opportunity to regain more passion and excitement in his day-to-day work. He wanted the chance to build something for himself and establish roots in his local community.

That’s when he found the Franchising 101 Podcast. After listening to a few episodes and learning more about franchise ownership, Brett scheduled a call with FranCoach. He came in very open-minded. While he had looked into some franchising opportunities on his own, he appreciated the guidance and coaching that he received working with FranCoach. He looked at a wide range of options, but it quickly became clear that Senior Helpers was the right path.

Why Will Brett Make a Great Franchise Owner?

Brett worked with FranCoach’s founder and CEO, Tim Parmeter, to find the franchise that perfectly aligned with his needs, goals, and expectations. Here’s what Tim has to say about why Brett is sure to succeed:

“Brett is smart enough to follow the plan set forth by the franchisor. But beyond that, he is motivated by his desire to really make a difference in his community. He wants to not only be an impactful, trusted provider of fantastic services for his client but also create a great working environment for his employees.”

Throughout the Discovery Process, Brett and Becky worked with Rob Cantrell, the Vice President of Franchise Development at Senior Helpers. Here is Rob’s perspective on working with the Higgs family:

“Once again, the team at FranCoach has provided Senior Helpers with a superb referral! While working with Brett and Becky Higgs, I soon realized they were our kind of folks! I am super excited to see them get started on their journey of providing services that help seniors in their community while building a legacy opportunity for their family.”

Why Did Brett Choose Senior Helpers?

Senior Helpers is one of the leading brands in the senior care industry, offering a proven, highly scalable model that has helped many franchisees succeed – in a big way. The business pairs an opportunity to make a difference in the community with strong revenue potential and a long history of success.

Brett immediately felt a connection with the Senior Helpers model. His new business is going to allow him to have a positive impact on his local area, not only from the service standpoint but also from the overall culture of the franchisor – Senior Helpers truly looks for people that want to be impactful.

Brett and Becky attended a virtual Meet the Team Day and built strong relationships with the Senior Helpers team. They are grateful for the support the brand offers and are excited to kick off their new business.

Please join our team at FranCoach in congratulating Brett and Becky Higgs and wishing them luck as new owners of Senior Helpers!
