101 Mobility, a nationwide, full service sales, service and installation provider of mobility products, recently opened a new location in Covington, LA. 101 Mobility Gulf Coast provides mobility solutions to homeowners and businesses across Southeast Louisiana and beyond, including Greater New Orleans, Baton Rouge and the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
After working more than 25 years at Johnson and Johnson, Cathy and her husband Chris, a Navy Veteran, decided to take a chance and start their own business. The Hunters researched several franchising opportunities and determined that Mobility 101 was the right fit.
Since neither of them had experience as business owners, the Hunters reached out to the Louisiana Small Business Development Center at Southeastern Louisiana University for help. Immediately, they found expert advice and consultation on a variety of business matters.
By conducting a feasibility study, the LSBDC was able to provide the Hunters much-needed insight about the viability of opening a mobility business along the Gulf Coast. Business Consultant Ginger Cangelosi, prepared comprehensive financial projections and helped fine-tune the business plan. “Ginger and Bill [Center Director] were quite helpful in validating our sales and profit projections. They were knowledgeable and provided the insight we needed to make our decision.”
The Hunters look forward to continuing to build on the momentum that 101 Mobility has established as one of the fastest growing and most comprehensive mobility products and solutions organizations in the nation. 101 Mobility Gulf Coast will focus on helping clients age-in-place by selling, installing, and servicing ramps, stair lifts, automobile lifts, patient lifts, vertical lifts, barrier-free baths and offering complete home modifications to incorporate total accessibility solutions.
101 Mobility is the franchising world’s first full-service sales, service, and installation provider of a complete line of mobility and accessibility products and equipment. By working with patients to identify which home health care devices best suit each individual’s needs, 101 Mobility Gulf Coast provides an alternative to group homes and rehabilitation centers by allowing patients to live self-sufficiently in their homes.
Since opening in March, 101 Mobility Gulf Coast has created two jobs and exceeded sales projections.
