Senior Citizens Assisting Seniors

September 22, 2020

Seniors Helping Seniors®, an at-home senior care brand that sets itself apart by employing a mature workforce of caregivers and creating meaningful relationships between its senior clients and caregivers, is continuing to provide safety and reassurance to the senior community amid the COVID-19 pandemic by recently introducing Telecare service offerings.

The telecare services will allow seniors to be cared for and monitored at a distance by their families, friends and caregivers through a personal, yet non-contact approach.

“We’re dedicated to continuing to provide new ways for families to monitor their loved ones— from a distance — and if necessary, to mitigate the number of personal interactions they have on a regular basis,” said Namrata Yocom-Jan, executive vice president of Seniors Helping Seniors. “This is exactly what telecare provides — a remote option for clients who are looking for companionship or assistance with immediate needs. Increased isolation has many seniors feeling alone and telecare can assist with bringing them together with another person to talk to, which is something that aids their mental well-being.”

The announcement comes at a time that clients are increasingly seeking remote care as the COVID-19 pandemic has proven to be the biggest threat to the senior community. Seniors Helping Seniors® locations will now be able to use these services to provide aspects that include check-in calls, companionship, medication and meal reminders and to broadly check in on their clients’ health.

“TeleCare services provide so much more than just a 30 second, ‘is everything ok’ call,” said Yocom-Jan. “It is designed to provide our clients with companionship, conversation, reminders and human interaction on days that our in-person caregivers are not there in person. This also provides peace-of-mind for family members who may not be able to check in as consistently on their loved ones.”

The brand prides itself on fostering meaningful relationships while providing the utmost care for their clients, and telecare communication offerings will be able to further sustain that quality care in a way that is safe for both clients and caregivers.

“If someone can’t physically be there, our caregivers can make a phone call,” said Daniel Jan, vice president of operations for the brand. “If they forgot they had an appointment, we can send someone to drive them. If they need groceries before a snowstorm, we can send someone out to get those, too. The service provides as much or as little they need.”

Telecare offerings will continue to be useful to seniors and caregivers beyond the pandemic — particularly new clients who are not quite ready for face-to-face caregiver visits. Seniors Helping Seniors® hopes to open the door to new opportunities for its clients through these new offerings as the world becomes increasingly more digital. This initiative follows the brand’s new partnership with virtual healthcare solutions provider Electronic Caregiver™, which will further allow seniors and their families to monitor their loved ones safely and electronically, at a distance.

“Our franchise owners are all very excited about the new offering,” said Yocom-Jan. “Not only will telecare help them with prospecting and introducing new clients to our services, but it can enrich the lives of current clients during the pandemic and beyond. Our mission is to connect seniors and help them build personal connections as they live more remote lives and we’re proud to introduce this offering to our system.”

AWATfit to Contribute 25% of Class Costs to Mashashimuet Park’s Play area Fund

September 03, 2020

Hamptons-based mobile fitness franchise AWATfit (All Weather All Terrain Fitness) has plans to raise over $25K for Mashashimuet Park’s playground fund over the next 60 days by hosting outdoor classes in the park. The brand has committed to donating $10 from each participating class member’s $40 class charge.

AWATfit mobilizes fitness by building equipment into specialty trucks perfect for group training events in wide-open spaces. As a longtime resident of the Hamptons, AWATfit’s CEO Richard Decker is excited by the opportunity to give back to his community through his business, and now more than ever, is eager to promote community involvement within his franchise network as it grows.

“Giving back to my community is incredibly important to me. This is my community,” Decker explained. “And not only will this donation help improve the park for the children of the community, it will also help to promote new business ventures to those who attend the classes. AWATfit is an incredibly attractive prospect for someone in the fitness industry who wants to own their own business, and I’m hopeful that this fundraiser might be the best way to reach those who might not yet know their potential.”

During the pandemic, the demand for local training service options has been overwhelming as people are still weary of working out in enclosed spaces like traditional brick-and-mortar gyms. For Decker and AWATfit, this has been an incredible opportunity for growth — Most recently AWATfit signed its first franchisee in Port Jefferson, New York who is set to open next month.

“Whether you’re a professional athlete or just trying to get some exercise in after work, the one thing that everyone hates about going to the gym is the environment — running in place, staring at walls, and now germs,” says Decker. “When you exercise outdoors, your energy and mood increase automatically, but most people don’t have access to a full set of gym equipment outside.”

AWATfit plans to start the fundraising as soon as possible, with classes in Mashashimuet Park set for all of September. In addition to the funds raised for the playground fund by the initial class fees, those who are interested can also contribute donations separate from the fee as well.

ABOUT AWATFIT:

Founded by Rich Decker, a fitness enthusiast and entrepreneur with more than 30 years in the industry, AWATfit is a fully mobile, full-service fitness business run entirely out of 20-foot truck fully equipped with 20 cutting-edge workout stations designed to address strength, flexibility, core, agility and cardiovascular as well as the mind-body-spirit connection.

Germinator Mobile Sanitizing and Disinfecting Opens in Maine

September 02, 2020

Further solidifying its standing as a national leader in a fast-growing industry, Germinator Mobile Sanitizing and Disinfecting is excited to announce the opening of its newest franchise. The company, which has rapidly expanded across the country since February, has opened a location in Maine.

Based in Bangor, the new franchise will provide a 100% safe and non-toxic sanitizing and disinfecting process, utilizing breakthrough technology scientifically proven to help reduce the spread of harmful bacteria and viruses similar to the novel coronavirus. Pete Philbrick will lead operations for Germinator Bangor, which will service neighborhoods throughout Aroostook County, Hancock County, Kennebec County, Knox County, Penobscot County, Piscataquis County, Somerset County, Waldo County and Washington County.

Born and raised in Bangor, Philbrick has always been passionate about serving the people of Maine. After receiving his bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Maine, he worked in telecommunications and owned an Internet company for many years before beginning his career in the franchise industry. He worked in franchise development and eventually became a Certified Franchise Executive (CFE).

“Health and safety have always been priorities for me and my family, as my wife works at the hospital in Bangor and our two children are enrolled in the public-school system,” said Pete Philbrick. “Owning a Germinator franchise was a natural transition for us and gives us the ability to ensure that homes and businesses are properly sanitized and disinfected. We are proud to do our part in helping to reduce the threat of germs, bacteria and viruses, while simultaneously helping to keep Maine’s economy and tourism moving ahead. Our goal is to create a safe and more comfortable environment for visitors and the people of Maine.”

Headquartered in Atlanta, Germinator was founded by Jeff Gill in 2015 with the vision of providing a safe, effective and non-toxic method of proper sanitizing and disinfecting for businesses and households. Since its foundation, the company has serviced homes, schools, childcare centers, restaurants, places of worship, office buildings, and more.

“Pete is a great addition to the Germinator team and has many years of valuable franchise experience, which makes him the perfect choice for our launch into Maine,” said Jeff Gill, CEO of Germinator. We are putting a focus on ramping up our expansion in the Northeastern United States as businesses continue to move along with reopening amid the pandemic. In addition to Maine, we’ve recently opened locations in Rhode Island and Pennsylvania with more coming soon.”

Germinator utilizes a two-step process to sanitize and disinfect surfaces as well as provide long-lasting protection against odor-causing bacteria, bacteria which cause stains and discoloration and fungi such as mold and mildew, and algae. The first step – Genesis – harnesses the power of hypochlorous acid (HOCl) to destroy bacteria, mold, mildew, viruses and odors caused by bacteria. HOCI is a non-toxic, near-neutral pH, hospital-grade sanitizer and disinfectant. The second step applies the Germinator’s Shield – an invisible microbial coating that protects surfaces for an extended period of time against the growth of mold, mildew and odor-causing bacteria. Both products are EPA registered and safe for humans, pets and the environment. The company’s highly trained field specialists employ best practices using electrostatic sprayers and wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as appropriate.

Upholding the highest standards of sanitizing and disinfecting, Germinator makes claims that are scientifically supported and within EPA regulations. In an effort to research and further validate its practice of sanitizing and disinfecting surfaces, the company recently created the Germinator Scientific Advisory Board. The board is made up of key leaders such as Dr. Roscoe M. Moore, Jr – who was an Assistant to the United States Surgeon General for five administrations.

“During these unprecedented times, the need to focus on sterilizing agents within our country’s airports, public spaces and offices in order to decrease the spread of viral pathogens such as Coronavirus is essential,” states Dr. Moore. “I am extremely happy to be a part of the Germinator team and lend my expertise in public health and regulatory affairs to what I feel is an immense asset to the containment effort.”

The company continues to expand across the country, providing communities with a proactive solution to help free environments from harmful germs, bacteria, and viruses. With Germinator, society can now have peace of mind and the freedom to live or work in a sanitized and disinfected environment. Businesses and residents in Maine can learn more by visiting https://www.germinatorbangor.com or calling (207) 852-3030.

September 02, 2020

Engel & Völkers Florida today announced Kristin Hallamek, an advisor with Engel & Völkers Belleair has obtained the listing of Minnesota Twins third baseman, Josh Donaldson’s Tampa home. On the market for $3,499,000, 4931 W. San Rafael Street is a waterfront home in the Sunset Park neighborhood of South Tampa.

“The custom-built home embodies luxury coastal lying,” said Hallamek. “Using Engel & Völkers cutting edge systems and tools, I have developed a highly customized, comprehensive and innovative marketing plan to find the right buyer.”

The 5,539 square feet mansion offers five-bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, home office, bonus/game room, wine cellar and a three-car finished garage. The main floor features an open concept with multiple floor to ceiling windows, expansive beamed ceilings with inlaid rich wood accents, grand spiral staircase and living area with a gas fireplace and formal dining room. Off the living area, there’s a gourmet kitchen with a large island, hidden walk-in pantry, Thermador stainless steel appliances and a wet bar with a wine refrigerator.

The home is situated a 9,147 square feet lot near the end of a deep water canal leading to the Old Tampa Bay. A multi-level backyard offers waterfront views from the heated saltwater pool and spa. An outdoor kitchen with a built-in grill, sink and refrigerator allows for endless entertaining opportunities. Additional amenities include wind rated windows and doors, electric blinds and curtains throughout, hardscape lighting, paver circular drive, and a smartphone-controlled alarm and security system.

“Kristin is a seasoned real estate agent, Tampa Bay native and our long-time property manager,” said Donaldson. “I am confident that no one knows this home, location and market better than she does. The global backing and reach of Engel & Völkers was an important contributing factor in my decision to list with Kristin as well.”

Donaldson is an American professional baseball third baseman for the Minnesota Twins of Major League Baseball. He previously played for Oakland Athletics, Toronto Blue Jays, Cleveland Indians, and Atlanta Braves. Donaldson originally purchased 4931 W. San Rafael Street to be closer to the Toronto Blue Jays Spring Training Headquarters, TD Ballpark in Dunedin, FL while he was on the team. He was voted the American League’s Most Valuable Player for the 2015 MLB season and was named as a starter to the 2015 MLB All-Star Game, earning the most fan votes obtained by a player in the process. Donaldson also won the Silver Slugger Award and led the American League in runs batted in and runs scored.

Tampa home values have gone up more than five-percent over the last year. The median price of homes currently listed in Tampa is $314,900; 4931 W. San Rafael Street is nearly 12 times that figure.

Cap Rates for Single Renter QSR Properties Increase

September 02, 2020

The Boulder Group announced the release of its Net Lease Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) Report today. In the second quarter national asking cap rates in the single tenant QSR sector increased to 5.65% representing a 30 basis point increase when compared to the prior year, according to the report. Cap rates for corporate leased QSR properties were unchanged at a 5.20% cap rate while QSR properties leased to franchisees increased by 15 basis points to a 5.83% cap rate.

“The primary reason for the 30 basis point increase in QSR cap rates can be attributed to the significant supply of franchisee leased properties in the market,” says Randy Blankstein, President, The Boulder Group.

In the second quarter of 2020, franchisee leased properties accounted for more than 70% of the market. Franchised locations make up the majority of QSR sector as primary brands including Burger King and KFC look to franchisees to fuel their growth models.

During the current Covid-19 pandemic, drive thru lanes allowed most QSR operators to limit the impact of reduced in-store dining on their businesses. Consumers of the QSR sector during this time favor drive thru locations as they are convenient and provide the ability to avoid larger crowds during the pandemic.

“Brands like Panera Bread stated that drive thru sales doubled during this pandemic and their preference to increase locations with drive thru lanes increased significantly,” adds Jimmy Goodman, Partner, The Boulder Group.

Beginning in March, the Covid-19 pandemic’s effect on the QSR sector impacted the acquisition criteria of net lease investors. During this timeframe, 1031 exchange and private net lease investors became more conservative and narrowly focused on tenant credit and lease term. Accordingly, new construction McDonald’s and Chick-Fil-A properties continue to represent the lowest cap rates in the sector (4.00% and 4.03% respectively). In the second quarter of 2020, properties leased to corporate entities were priced at a 63 basis point premium over franchisee related properties.

“The expectation is that the gap between corporate and franchisee QSR cap rates will continue to widen throughout the remainder of 2020,” John Feeney, Senior Vice President, The Boulder Group adds.

A recent poll conducted in August by The Boulder Group surveyed market participants regarding cap rate expectations for smaller franchisee backed leases. The overwhelming majority (59%) expect cap rates to rise by more than 15 basis point for properties leased to smaller franchisees (less than 25 locations) by the end of 2020.

The single tenant QSR sector will continue to garner demand as investors seek net lease investments backed by tenants whose business model was minimally impacted as a result of Covid-19. “There will continue to be a bifurcation between corporate/large franchisees and smaller franchisees as a flight to quality continues in this sector,” according to Blankstein. “Additionally, net lease investors will be monitoring store prototypes as certain chains including Shake Shack launch their first drive thru locations and several existing tenants explore drive thru only formats.”

About The Boulder Group

The Boulder Group is a boutique, Chicago-based investment real estate services firm specializing in transaction and advisory services for single tenant net lease properties. Founded in 1997, the firm has closed over $6 billion of net lease property transactions. The firm provides a full range of brokerage, research, advisory, and financing services nationwide. The level of annual, single-tenant transaction volume consistently ranks the firm in the top 10 companies nationally, according to industry benchmarks determined by CoStar and Real Capital Analytics.

Local Family Pet Parent Brings Family Pet Wants to Greater Boston, MA

September 02, 2020

Local dog mom Rosaline Hansen is pleased to announce the launch of her business – Pet Wants Newton. Pet Wants Newton is a mobile pet food and supplies business that offers free, personal delivery through Greater Boston and the western suburbs, including Dedham, Needham, Newton, Wellesley, Acton and Concord.

Pet Wants’ specially-crafted, private-label pet food formulas are made in small batches with fresh, natural ingredients enhanced with vitamins and minerals for a complete and balanced diet in every bowl, all made in the USA. Pet Wants Newton has multiple blends of dog and cat food formulas as well as healing salve, calming balm, anti-itch spray, paw wax and more.

“When we were thinking about opening Pet Wants, we got a few samples of the food. Both of my dogs absolutely loved it and my girl wouldn’t eat her old food without some Pet Wants sprinkled in. I had to horde the kibble until I could get more! I am thrilled to be able to bring such a great offering of products to the Greater Boston area through Pet Wants Newton,” Hansen said.

Pet Wants has a money-back guarantee on the freshness and quality of the food and the company only sources the best salmon, chicken, lamb, brown rice and other ingredients available. There’s no sugar added, no fillers and no animal by-products and Pet Wants never uses corn, wheat, soy or dyes, which makes the food great for animals with allergies.

Rosaline, a Massachusetts native, has a background in sales and marketing, mostly in the wine industry. She and her husband, Randy, have two rescue pups – a four-year-old Golden/Lab mix (and mommy’s girl) named Luna, and a 2-year-old Boxer/Lab mix (and daddy’s boy) named Loial. Both Rosaline and Randy have had dogs for most of their lives and are looking forward to helping animals through Pet Wants.

“I’m a crazy dog mom and Randy and I loved the idea of having a family business, which led us to Pet Wants,” Hansen said. “My dogs play a huge role in my life and in making me happy every day. I have been a long-time donor to the ASPCA and Humane Society, but now I am excited to use my business skills to help pets in another way. Pet Wants gives me a chance to really help fellow pet parents give their animals longer, healthier, happier lives.”
