Best Franchise to Own in Ohio

Franchising provides a unique opportunity to work for yourself within a well-established structure. The key is to find the best franchise to own based on the location, earning potential, support provided, and what you really want to do for a living.

If you’re empathetic, self-starting, and eager to make a difference among underserved communities, a home care franchise could be an ideal fit. At Visiting Angels®, we have hundreds of franchise locations nationwide that offer vital support for seniors and their families.

In this post, we’ll explore new opportunities in Ohio — and why Visiting Angels is the best franchise to own in the Buckeye State.

Openings in Ohio with the Best Franchise to Own

According to the 2020 U.S. Census, Ohio is the 7th most populous state with 11,689,100 residents. Why is a home care company the best franchise to own in Ohio? Like many states in the Midwest, Ohioans are getting older.

Per the latest U.S. census estimates, seniors now account for 17.5% of all Ohioans, exceeding the national average. In fact, adults over the age of 60 were expected to outnumber residents under 20, based on projections released in 2019.

It’s clear, then, that Ohio presents a prime opportunity for a home care franchise owner. Currently, we have three locations available in the state:


Located on Lake Erie in Northeast Ohio, Ashtabula is home to 18,017 people according to the latest census. Older adults make up 16.5% of all residents, while 16.8% of people under the age of 65 have some form of disability.

This scenic community alone has great potential for a home care franchise. In addition, this location also covers many neighboring areas such as Adamsville, East Springfield, Girard, Linesville, Atlantic, Lake City, Springboro, Hartstown, Jamestown, Rock Creek, Conneaut Lake, Meadville, Windsor, Albion, Conneautville, Cranesville, Saegertown, and Geneva.

Columbus Grove

The village of Columbus Grove is perfect for a change of pace. It’s home to a small, vibrant community of just over 2,000 residents, according to the 2019 American Community Survey.

Seniors make up 16.7% of the population, with 10.2% between the ages of 65 and 74. This shows not only an existing market for home care, but a strong potential to gain long-term clients.

Columbus Grove is located near three different highway systems that provide easy access to the many communities covered by this franchise location. The Columbus Grove franchise will be able to serve seniors in Lima, Mount Cory, Miller City, Grover Hill, Beaverdam, Gomer, Middle Point, Antwerp, Bluffton, Kalida, Willshire, Pawson, Cairo, Cecil, Cloverdale, Delphos, Fort Jennings, Lafayette, Latty, Leipsic, Mc Comb, Melrose, Rockford, and Ohio City.


Lastly, Marion in North-Central Ohio presents another exciting opportunity for aspiring franchise owners. This city, located an hour north of Columbus, is home to 35,883 people. Of this expansive population, 14.4% of residents aged 65 and over. Meanwhile, a substantial 17.6% of younger residents reported a disability. These figures together point to a potential need for home care services that is likely to increase in the years to come.

As the owner of a Visiting Angels franchise in Marion, your protected territory would also include Radnor, Carey, Waldo, Sycamore, Green Camp, Kirby, Prospect, Broadway, Marysville, Raymond, Bellefontaine, East Liberty, Edison, Attica, La Rue, Morral, Zanesfield, and many other communities.
