Why Buy a Senior Care Franchise in Omaha?
Omaha’s economy is among the strongest in the Midwest, making it one of the country’s top spots for small business ownership. With a large and growing population of seniors, it’s also an ideal market for starting a home care franchise.
Growing Market for Senior Care
Douglas County and the Nebraska metro area have grown steadily over the past two decades, with a 23.9% population growth since the year 2000. The area has continued to grow in the 2020s, and it now boasts a total population of 565,739, including over 70,000 residents 65+ years old.
This number will grow even higher over the next 15 years, with over 95,000 residents between the ages of 50 and 64. As a result Omaha has a substantial existing market for in-home care, with the potential for rapid growth in the near future.
Attractive Climate for Investors
Few American cities have grown as steadily as Omaha since the 1990s. The region’s stable, growing economy makes it an ideal market for investors and small business owners.
In a recent ranking of U.S. cities by Wallethhub, Omaha placed in the top 30 large and mid-sized cities for starting a small business. This ranking was driven by Omaha’s modest real estate and labor costs, combined with local funding and incentives for entrepreneurs.
Franchise Territory Availability

As one of the first Senior Helpers home care franchises in the Omaha market, you can choose which territory (or territories) to purchase, defining your protected service area. Each Senior Helpers territory has a market of at least 30,000 seniors, ensuring a large available client base.
