MESA, Ariz. – July 29, 2020 — Assisted Living Locator’s East Valley franchisee Dustin Baker was identified by franchisee satisfaction research firm, Franchise Business Review, as a Rock Star Franchisee for the second consecutive year. Baker’s franchise provides senior placement and referral service throughout Chandler, Gilbert, Apache Junction, Queen Creek, and East Mesa areas.
Each year, Franchise Business Review honors franchise owners who set exceptional examples of achieving success within the franchise model. Baker was selected as a Franchise Rockstar from over 28,000 franchisees, representing more than 300 brands that participated in Franchise Business Review’s research in the past 18 months.
The Rock Stars recognized were nominated by their franchise brand leadership as franchisees who set admirable examples when it comes to leadership, business acumen, financial and professional success, and contributing to their community.
“There are so many success stories out there and thousands of inspiring franchise owners who are living their dreams of business ownership that it was incredibly difficult to narrow down the list,” said Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “In the end, we chose individuals who are exceptional examples of achieving success through the franchise model and exemplify a strong work ethic and a real commitment to their business and community. We are thrilled to recognize these individuals as Franchise Rock Stars.”
According to Assisted Living Locators CEO RN Angela Olea, Dustin Baker is a top franchise producer that not only helps and mentors his fellow franchisees, but also passionately cares about his senior clients and his community. “As an Iraq veteran and medic, Dustin has been determined to make a positive impact on his community during the coronavirus pandemic,” Olea explained. “He has supplied over a thousand N-95 masks to protect healthcare workers in veterans’ homes and senior living properties.”
Prior to joining the senior care industry, Baker served in the United States Army as a combat medic in an artillery unit during Operation Iraqi Freedom. He was also an administrative supervisor at an outpatient surgical ward at William Beaumont army medical center at Fort Bliss, in El Paso, TX.
