Home Care Franchise Opportunities in Iowa

Ready to own your own business? Between the current thriving home care market and the growth still to come, now is an ideal time to invest in a home care franchise opportunity.

Demand for affordable home care has been surging in the United States for the last 10 years, with no sign of slowing down. While baby boomers have been driving this demand over the last decade, the youngest members of this generation won’t be reaching retirement age until 2030.

At Visiting Angels®, we have hundreds of home care franchises across the U.S., with even more opportunities for entrepreneurs like you. In this post, we’ll delve into some promising locations in the Hawkeye state.

Our Current Home Care Franchise Opportunities in Iowa

With a population estimated at 3,155,07 as of the last U.S. census, Iowa is a compelling location for a new home care franchise. Seniors account for 17.5% of the general population in this state, which is higher than the national average.

At present, we have three strong home care franchise opportunities at play, including one resale option. These locations include:


Home to Iowa State University, Ames is a bustling city just 30 miles north of the state capital, Des Moines. Per the census, the population reached 66,258 residents as of 2020, a rise of 12.2% since 2010. This far outstrips Iowa’s 3.6% growth rate and the national growth rate in that time.

While students make up a large portion of the population in Ames, 9.8% of residents are 65 and older. As the owner of this franchise, you would serve this community and several others in the area, including Alleman, Ankeny, Cambridge, Colo, Elkhart, Ellsworth, Fort Dodge, Gilbert, Huxley, Jewell, Kamrar, Marshalltown, Maxwell, Nevada, Randall, Roland, Stanhope, Stratford, and Webster City, among others.

Mason City

Located in Northern Iowa near the border with Minnesota, we have a promising home care franchise opportunity in Mason City. An estimated 26,931 live in this music-loving metropolitan area. Its elderly community accounts for almost 21% of all residents here, which is well above the national average of 16.5%.

From Mason City, you’ll serve more than 100 other cities and towns as part of your protected territories. These would include, but are not limited to, Alden, Alexander, Bancroft, Belmond, Blairsburg, Bradford, Britt, Buffalo Center, Calmar, Carpenter, Charles City, Coulter, Dows, Fenton, Floyd, Galt, Goldfield, Grafton, Hawkeye, Iowa Falls, Lake Mills, Lakota, Lone Rock, Marble Rock, Nashua, Osage, Protivin, Rudd, Riceville, Ridgeway, Rockwell, Swea City, Thornton, and Woolstock.


With a resale opportunity, you’ll have everything in place to serve your community from day one. We currently have a franchise available in Urbandale, which is located just outside of Des Moines. The population is a reported 44,379 residents, 14.1% of whom are 65 years or above. Like Ames, this city has also grown by more than 12% since the last census in 2010.

If you purchase this existing franchise, you’ll already have staff and a client list in place that includes households in Urbandale throughout this location’s protected territory. This location serves nearby Booneville, Cumming, Des Moines, De Soto, Grander, Granger, Grimes, Herrold, Lovington, Orilla, and Waukee.
