Five years after opening a Synergy HomeCare franchise in Miami, Lucy Robello is still in the midst of strong growth.
She previously work for a company that owned clinics in San Antonio and, after living in Nicaragua, moved to Miami when her husband found a new job. Looking at the aging demographics of South Florida’s population, Robello realized that home care services would be sorely needed.
Her franchise, which has 90 active caregivers – including nurses, nurse assistants and home health aides – grew by 20 percent in 2013. Robello plans to hire six to 10 people a month.
