When you invest in Tootl, you are investing in a booming industry that will only continue to grow. The rise in the geriatric and disabled populations plays a significant part in the growth of the U.S. non-emergency medical transportation market, creating a huge demand for Tootl's services. In 2021, the non-emergency medical transportation market was $8.6 billion in the U.S. and is projected to reach over $15 billion by 2028. The market growth is primarily driven by the country's increasing aging population and an expanding need for necessary medical care.
Tootl's roots go back to 2012, when Michelle Dacy noticed how challenging it was to get her own grandmother to the numerous doctor's appointments and other necessary errands. She later established her own wheelchair accessible transportation company, which grew each year in revenues with clients across the entire Chicagoland area.
With no direct competitors at the national brand level, strong growth potential and low-overhead in the booming Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) sector, the innovative concept caught the attention of well-known experienced franchising industry veterans Steve Greenbaum and Brad Fishman, who are backing the franchising effort as investors and advisors. Greenbaum and Fishman helped the Dacy's rebrand to Tootl and launch a second location in Milwaukee in 2021, which exceeded all business expectations even during the peak of COVID and the most challenging external economic conditions.
œAs someone who cares deeply about franchising, I wanted to ensure the next venture I got involved in was values-based, purpose-driven and would make a positive impact on the lives of everyone it touches, Greenbaum said. œTootl meets all of the criteria and more. Brad and I couldn't be more excited to be involved in the journey of growing and supporting the Tootl franchise system.
Tootl is seeking both single and multi-unit franchisees with an entrepreneurial spirit, great interpersonal and organizational skills and a strong desire to serve their communities. Experience in the health care industry is a benefit since Tootl works with a variety of senior care facilities, case managers and healthcare professionals but it is not a requirement. Unlike more expensive traditional brick and mortar businesses, including the franchise fee, the initial investment for a Tootl franchise is between $78,400 “$97,400.
