Franchise Expert Dick Rennick Appointed Ceo Of Assisting Hands

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

Franchise expert and entrepreneur Dick Rennick was recently appointed CEO of Assisting Hands, a franchise system that provides non-medical, in-home care to people who are elderly or have special needs.

"When I came on board as CEO three months ago, my job was primarily to organize the fledgling less-than-two-year-old company into a "�Care Giving Power House Franchise Company"� using my past 40 years in the business community and my skills over the past 30+ years in the franchise business industry,"� explained Rennick. "I think we have made a very good start and investors are agreeing with that as demonstrated by the fact that we have managed to sell in excess of $600,000 worth of regional developer agreements since I have come on board with at least two to three more regional developers waiting in the queue."� Rennick decided to leave semi-retirement after recognizing the power of the in-home healthcare franchise industry, which has grown five-fold in unit growth from 2000 to 2006, according to FRANdata, an Arlington-Virginia-based research firm that tracks franchises and their performance.

After formally retiring from the IFA and selling his franchise business 360-unit American Leak Detection, Rennick semi-retired for two years and worked with another company he founded called Team Rennick to mentor young and growing companies. Assisting Hands was one of his Team Rennick clients, and after working with the franchise expert for several months the Mesa-Arizona-based franchise asked him to come on full-time as the system's president and CEO.

Rennick now splits his time between his home in Palm Springs, California, and a second home he is leasing in Mesa, Arizona, where the company is headquartered.

About Dick Rennick Dick Rennick is the former Chairman of the International Franchise Association who founded, led and later sold American Leak Detection, a Palm Springs, California-based high-tech service firm with more than 360 franchise units in 41 states and a dozen foreign countries. Rennick has been cited as a franchise expert in more than 100 media publications and is recognized within the franchise industry as one of the leading experts in the franchise business model.

He is often tapped by other franchise systems such as Estrada Strategies, Great Harvest Bakeries, Roto-Rooter, Screenmobile and others to evaluate their franchise business model and recommend improvements to their programs and processes.

Rennick was named the IFA's Entrepreneur of the Year for 1997/1998 and the American Association of Franchisees and Dealers Franchisor of the Year for 1998. The University of Texas at El Paso has honored him with three awards-1996 Outstanding Franchisor, 1997 International Franchise and 2000 Franchising Innovation. For his pioneering and innovative technology, the Spirit of Entrepreneur Technology Award was presented to him in 2004 by a group composed of members from California State University, San Bernardino; Inland Empire Center for Entrepreneurship; and Riverside Press Enterprise. He has also received a Certified Franchise Executive designation from the IFA.
