101 Mobility Opens Franchise in Roanoke/Lynchburg Market

Roanoke, VA (PRWEB) June 18, 2012

Jack and Ann Shoemaker, a husband-and-wife team, are the owners/operators of 101 Mobility’s latest Virginia franchise, serving Roanoke, Lynchburg, and surrounding areas from their Salem headquarters office. The Shoemakers will have the support of teammates Eva James, a native of the Roanoke Valley who will serve as their managing partner, and Debbie Kanode, a Salem native, who will serve as office coordinator. 101 Mobility Roanoke/Lynchburg will join the Washington, D.C. Metro franchise in a recent string of 101 Mobility openings across the Old Dominion State.

Born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, the Shoemakers are happy to return to the East Coast after living in Ohio for several years. Jack and Ann bring diverse experiences in healthcare, management, and sales to the organization. The Shoemakers are active members of their community, and they look forward to serving their neighbors with quality of life products that positively address personal mobility issues; allowing people to stay in their homes or age in place, despite facing everyday challenges such as stairways, raised porches, and other obstacles.

Jack and Ann Shoemaker are grateful for the chance to meet a need with which their collective personal and professional interests align. “All the breakthroughs in medicine, technology and equipment that allow people to stay in their homes longer made a partnership with 101 Mobility a very compelling opportunity,” said Jack. “Especially as the population is aging.” Jack Shoemaker’s interests in construction and home improvement, entrepreneurship, healthcare and service to others created an optimal career option in 101 Mobility. “It’s not lost on me that this is a truly unique business opportunity, one that allows us to ‘do good’ by doing good,” adds Shoemaker. Eva James, 101 Mobility Roanoke/Lynchburg’s managing partner, agrees. "Technology has made wonderful advancements for those with limited mobility. I can’t forget the words of my grandmother, 'I don’t want to just watch the world, I want to live in it.' That’s our goal. We want to help people find solutions to the mobility challenges that limit their ability to fully live in the world."

101 Mobility Roanoke/Lynchburg will focus on helping clients age in place by selling, installing, and servicing ramps, stair lifts, automobile lifts, patient lifts, vertical lifts, and barrier-free baths, and offering complete home modifications to incorporate total accessibility solutions. 101 Mobility is one of the nation's largest sellers and installers of personal mobility products from well-known brands such as Bruno, Harmar, Liko, and many more.

101 Mobility is also a leader in providing services to our United States veterans through the U.S. Veterans Administration. The Shoemakers are especially excited about this collaboration. “It’s gratifying to be able to serve our veterans,” Jack Shoemaker said.

101 Mobility is the franchising world’s first sales, service, and installation provider of a complete line of mobility and accessibility products and equipment, including stair lifts, auto lifts, ramps, porch lifts, patient lifts, power wheelchairs, scooters and more. Short and long-term rentals are also available for homes, offices, and institutions. By working with individuals and families to identify which home health care devices best suit their needs, 101 Mobility provides an alternative to group homes and rehabilitation centers by allowing mobility-challenged individuals to live self-sufficiently in their homes.
