Born to Help People: Utah Chiropractor Opens Senior Care Franchise


We are excited to announce the newest owner of Senior Helpers: Ira Crawford. A successful chiropractor and father of four who lives in Utah, Ira is looking forward to setting himself up for a top-notch retirement by expanding into franchise ownership and harnessing his experience in the healthcare sector to achieve success with Senior Helpers.

Who Is Ira Crawford?

Ira has owned his own practice in Utah for the last 23 years, and he has also served as the CEO of natural supplement company Earthspring. He is incredibly proud of his achievements in both of these areas, as he has helped grow each business and has excelled in training and developing strong relationships with employees.

But most of all, Ira is proud of being an amazing father to his four children, whose ages range from five to seventeen years old. Ira is looking to set himself up for a comfortable retirement so that he can spend the majority of his time with his children and family.

Why Did Ira Make a Career Change?

Ira is passionate about his career as a chiropractor as well as his other side businesses, but he has been working hard in those areas for 23 years at this point – it is time for a change. Ira wants to create some flexibility in his schedule in a way that allows him to remain involved with his existing businesses but take a step back to get his new franchise off the ground.

Ira saw himself working full-time with his franchise to start, then slowly growing it into something that he could step into a semi-absentee role with. He hoped that his business could evolve with him into his retirement. To gain some clarity and assistance with choosing the right franchise, Ira turned to FranCoach… and he was able to find the perfect match.

Why Will Ira Make a Great Franchise Owner?

With a proven track record of success owning and growing his multiple businesses, Ira is already primed to do well as a franchisee. Ira puts a high value on management and building personal relationships, and he is excited to bring these skills into his new career.

Katie Lepper, whom Ira worked with at FranCoach, commented on his “passion for helping and healing people.” With that in mind, Senior Helpers was an ideal pairing.

Why Did Ira Choose Senior Helpers?

Senior Helpers is one of the leading brands in the senior care industry, offering a proven, highly scalable model that has helped many franchisees succeed – in a big way. The business pairs an opportunity to make a difference in the community with strong revenue potential and a long history of success.

With its proven business model and connection to Ira’s passion for the healthcare industry, Senior Helpers was an obvious choice. Ira is excited to be working in an executive role as the owner of a franchise, and he is thrilled about the opportunity to make a difference in his community while remaining involved in the field that he loves.

Please join our team at FranCoach in congratulating Ira Crawford and wishing him luck as a new owner of Senior Helpers!
