Touching Hearts at Home Franchise Achieves Record-breaking Growth in 2016
Yearly numbers up almost 17% over 2015; January 2017 up 6% over December
Touching Hearts at Home franchise’s record-breaking year of growth in 2016 is not necessarily exceptional — the company has had growth increases most every month since its beginning — but total company revenues for 2016 were up almost 17% over the previous year.
The first month of 2017 sets a trajectory of positive momentum for Touching Hearts as we go into the new year with a focus on expansion to new territories in the U.S. Our revenues in January were up 6% over December.
“We’re really excited to have begun the year with such a strong start,” Renae Peterson, CEO and founder of Touching Hearts at Home said. “We anticipate 2017 to follow suit, as we are focused on partnering with new franchise owners this year. We have wide open territories nationwide. There’s never been a better time to become a Touching Hearts at Home franchisee.”
Our strongest quarter last year was the third. We posted growth of almost 8% over the second quarter, which was up 3.4% over the first! The fourth quarter grew 5.3% over the third. First quarter 2017 numbers are not yet tallied, but in the month of January, our revenues were up 6% over December 2016.
“Since our inception, we have seen overall increased revenues and positive growth,” Renae says. “But these latest figures are significant to us, breaking previous records and representing months of hard work and focus. Touching Hearts is healthy and thriving, and the numbers help tell that story.”
