CarePatrol Franchise Rock Star Enriches the Lives of Seniors, Kids, and Community

Randy Chipman CarePatrol Franchise Rock Star

Being a caring individual is a prerequisite for working in a capacity that serves senior citizens. However, some of these altruistic people, such as Randy Chipman, can care beyond measure. A franchise owner with CarePatrol since 2014, he has been recognized as a franchise Rock Star in the Giving Back category. And it is a richly deserved honor. Entrepreneurship comes naturally for Randy, as he and his wife previously owned their own small home security business. It prepared him well for the stellar career he enjoys with his Utah-based CarePatrol franchise, having now helped over 1,000 seniors and their families locate the best possible living arrangements while maintaining their dignity throughout the process. In doing so, he’s become one of the franchisor’s most stalwart performers, earning the prestigious honor of being named the organization’s “Franchisee of the Year” in 2023.

Meet Randy Chipman—CarePatrol Franchise Rock Star

Randy and his wife Keri are the proud owners of a Utah-based CarePatrol franchise dedicated to helping seniors and their loved ones navigate the often overwhelming process of locating suitable living arrangements and an associated level of care. The freedom and flexibility franchising offers suit the couple well, allowing them to spend as much quality time with their children as possible and for  Randy to indulge in one of his favorite activities as a mountain biking coach for the local community. Randy maintains multiple certifications related to his senior care referral specialist work, including his status as a certified senior advisor and certified placement and referral specialist. Randy also holds an MBA in business administration.

Why the CarePatrol Franchise Chose This Rock Star

It likely wasn’t a difficult decision for CarePatrol to recognize Randy as a Rock Star in the Giving Back category. Thanks to his servant leadership approach, the corporate leadership team has seen firsthand what a selfless person he is, always focused on others. His tireless efforts to champion the rights of seniors earned him a well-deserved place among the brand’s Franchise Advisory Council, where he makes untold contributions advocating for his franchisee network. The CarePatrol franchise also sees in Randy the qualities they hope to find in the next generation of franchise owners. They are seeking individuals who know the value of interpersonal relationships and work hard to forge a collaborative environment where everyone on the team feels seen, heard, and valued. The fact that CarePatrol saw Randy fit to represent them in the Giving Back category really comes as no surprise. And if you had the honor of meeting him in person, we’re sure you’d agree.

In his own words, Randy shares his journey to franchise ownership and franchising rock star status.
