Meraki Assisted Living Franchise is changing lives and transforming the industry

This is more than just a team, this is a family. Many assisted living franchises offer support services, but Meraki owners bring franchisee experience to the relationship.

We know what it is like to own a franchise, learn a new industry, and take business risks. We’re prepared to walk side-by-side with you, to help you achieve your dream.

    do i need experience in health or senior care to own an Assisted living franchise?

    No! We know what it is like to build a franchise and simultaneously learn a new industry. We are just as invested in our franchisees as we are with the residents that we care for in our corporate-owned homes. We’ve taken that successful model of care and developed a full suite of support. 

    Meraki strong. Join the movement.

    Join our franchise and become part of the future of senior living

    Here’s your chance to do something truly good. The need for change in this sector is overwhelmingly clear. A core component of your resident base, the senior population, is growing exponentially, and demand for housing solutions is expected to continue strong growth.

    By 2036, the population aged 65 and over is expected to grow to 79 million seniors.

    The U.S. will need almost two million more housing facilities by 2040 to provide living space for seniors who need care.

    But it’s not enough to simply offer housing or living space. Today, families expect and deserve assisted living solutions that address the whole person, and embody a place where they can imagine themselves living. Meraki Assisted Living Franchise is a break-through solution which provides comfortable residential homes, combined with unmatched personalized services and amenities, and a common sense approach to caring for one another.

    Meraki offers a unique senior living franchise opportunity in a saturated market.

    The demand for senior care is on the rise, but the franchising opportunities that exist in the market are becoming overly saturated. Most are centered around home-health care or referral services for families and social workers. There are no appreciable assets.

    This an ideal opportunity to renew your spirit, expand your professional portfolio and make a significant impact in your local community — now. We are seeking qualified franchise owners who  are driven to serve, and who are excited about disrupting the traditional assisted living sector.

    Initial franchise fee:
    $75,000

    (Fees for 3 Homes)

    Estimated total investment:
    $129,060 to $627,010

    (See our FDD for details).
