Our Senior Care Franchise Opportunity in Texarkana
The U.S. population has aged significantly in the last decade as the Baby Boomer generation has entered retirement age. This shift has spurred a massive demand for affordable senior care services. As an entrepreneur, there has never been a better time to invest in a senior care franchise opportunity — but where should you look?
Visiting Angels® is a highly regarded senior care provider with locations all across the country. In previous posts, we’ve covered promising senior care franchise opportunities in the Southern United States, including Utah, Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, South Carolina, and Florida.
In this post, we’ll showcase another prime location to buy a franchise.
What Makes Texarkana an Ideal Senior Care Franchise Opportunity
As we touched on in a previous post, cities within the Southern United States have shown the fastest growth in the last 10 years, per the U.S. Census Bureau. This trend, along with lower (or non-existent) tax rates and cost of living, is enough to draw any entrepreneur to this part of the country.
Texarkana is a unique city in the Arkansas-Louisiana-Texas region that straddles the border of Texas and Arkansas. The Texarkana Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) includes the twin cities of Texarkana, Texas, and Texarkana, Arkansas, and their surrounding counties — Bowie County, Texas and Miller County, Arkansas.
According to a report from the municipal government of Texarkana, Texas, the total population of the Texarkana MSA was 407,149 as of 2018. Of that number, 18.4% were 65 or older, with an additional 13.3% aged 55–64. Based on these figures, it’s clear this region presents an incredible opportunity for a senior care franchise with significant potential for growth.
The two Texarkanas are the anchor of this region economically and culturally. The most recent U.S. Census lists the population of Texarkana, Texas as 36,317. Residents aged 65 and over account for 15.2% of that population. Across state lines in Texarkana, Arkansas, the population in 2019 was 29,657. The elderly population made up 17.2% of the population that year.
