Avendelle Assisted Living Looks to Expand Through Franchising, Building Upon Rapid Growth

The leading residential assisted living franchise brand is actively seeking franchise partners nationwide, offering intimate, safe, and personalized care to new communities

Avendelle Assisted Living, a residential assisted-living franchise providing quality and personalized care, is poised for success as the brand looks to continue expansion nationwide. With almost 20 years in business, the brand has become a trusted name in the industry, and is now looking to expand into new communities to provide a valuable alternative to traditional senior housing facilities. 

Avendelle Assisted Living currently boasts four corporate locations and 20 franchise locations in operation across Florida and North Carolina in Apex, Cary, Fuquay-Varina, Raleigh/Durham, and Rolesville. With an additional 15+ in development across North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Virginia, and a Master Agreement in Turkey, the residential assisted-living franchise now looks to bring their personalized care options to new communities. Avendelle Assisted Living is actively seeking qualified franchise partners in all US states, as well as international territories.

“We are honored and excited to continue our expansion journey and grow our footprint,” says Bill Bunting, chief operating officer at Avendelle. “At Avendelle Assisted Living, we aim to redefine senior care, building on our proven commitment to exceptional, personalized care. We now look forward to finding passionate franchise partners who share our values and mission and will help us enrich the lives of seniors in new communities nationwide.”

Avendelle Assisted Living operates on a mission to provide a safe, comfortable, and engaging atmosphere for all who come through the door. Rather than a conventional institutionalized facility, Avendelle offers residential homes for its residents, providing personalized care in the comfort of a home. The brand focuses on achieving their goals through three central components of care: living safely, living independently, and living comfortably. These components are established through a variety of factors that come together to create the best possible environment for aging loved ones, including specific criteria for location of homes, small populations per home, a low resident to caregiver ratio, and active involvement from residents.

“We pride ourselves on setting an industry standard by providing a level of care that goes beyond the basics, creating a nurturing home environment where residents can age in place,” Bunting says. “Our residents and their loved ones place their trust in us to provide top-notch care. As we expand, we commit to upholding this trust, ensuring that every family who chooses Avendelle Assisted Living can have peace of mind knowing they are in capable and caring hands.”

Founded in 2005 by Esther Cromwell, Avendelle offers a unique senior care living option focused on intimate, safe, and personalized care. Cromwell first discovered her passion for senior care through helping her elderly widowed neighbor. Finding no viable options in her community for her neighbor to go to, Cromwell set out on a mission to create a facility that would provide top-notch, quality care for senior residents. Since then, she has built, remodeled, operated, and franchised dozens of homes, crafting the perfect recipe for the ideal residential care home.
