Griswold negotiates franchise agreements

Griswold Home Care, a company that provides nonmedical at-home care services, and its independent franchisee association, the GHCFA, a chapter of the American Association of Franchisees and Dealers, have announced the successful negotiation of new franchise agreements.

These agreements, negotiated over 18 months, are now among the highest rated in franchising history, scoring above 97 percent conformity with the criteria set forth in the AAFD’s Fair Franchising Standards.

Griswold CEO Matthew Murphy and Meg Mairn, past president of GHCFA and chairman of the franchisee negotiating team, issued a joint statement regarding the new agreements, “In reaching a mutual agreement that respects the rights and interests of GHC, our franchisees, our caregivers and our clients, we have established a commitment of mutual respect and collaboration that we believe will serve our brand and our stakeholders. It is particularly meaningful because it reflects our overall commitment to quality in every aspect of our business. We are working to be recognized as the premier home care provider in the world.”

Griswold has an office in Hollidaysburg.
