In this exclusive Q&A, I spoke with Lori Vrcan about what it’s like to be a CarePatrol franchisee along with her husband Todd.
Franchise Chatter (FC): Tell us about your background. When did you realize you wanted to own your own business? What attracted you to the franchise industry?
Lori Vrcan (LV): I’m originally from Florida, Todd is a native of Ohio, and we met in Colorado, marrying five years ago. We ended up back in Ohio in 2018, where Todd had taken a job with a new company. With this change in location, I decided to take a different career path and accepted a job with a national senior living community as a sales and marketing manager.
In that position, I dealt with bogus leads coming in from several online senior placement agencies and some local representatives, along with leads received from my CarePatrol agent. I was most impressed with my interactions with CarePatrol, knowing that each client referred to me was pre-qualified and my community would fit their important needs for care, budget, desire of location and personal interests.
