101 Mobility was created in 2008 to deliver mobility and accessibility solutions to an underserved yet growing market of people that are faced with limited physical mobility.
What started as a small, Wilmington, North Carolina-based company is now a nationally-trusted resource for families and businesses who want to improve accessibility within their realm. Where there are restrictions, limitations, challenges and frustrations, your 101 Mobility local team expertly designs and installs the most favorable solutions from a wide range of mobility products.
But the true power of the 101 Mobility brand is its people – the experts, the problem solvers, the trusted allies that work hard every day to deliver the best solutions and value to their clients. And they do it with sensitivity, caring and responsiveness – it’s their mission to stand by a client’s side and be there whenever they need them. And that is how we change lives for the better.

The 101 Mobility franchise opportunity is about scaling a business and being a leader. The skills we seek are tenacity, leadership, organization, and precision, among others. While a technical background can be helpful, all equipment installation and service work should be completed by a trained “Mobility Specialist” that you will hire.
Aside from a strong business model that is very scalable and has low labor cost you are in a business that helps people in many different ways.
We offer a two-week in-person training program at our home office in Wilmington, NC., but due to COVID we have successfully replaced in-person training with virtual delivery.
The first week of the program includes product and installation training, where attendees will become qualified to install and service each of the primary products that we offer.
The second week of the program is called “Business Week”, and includes all of the topics necessary to successfully manage your business, including sales, operations, and marketing.
After our initial training program, you will also receive ongoing in-the-field training from your Franchise Business Development Manager, as well as regularly scheduled phone support meetings.
We are a one-stop-shop for mobility and accessibility solutions. That means that each of our franchise locations sells, rents, installs, and services a wide range of equipment.
Our goal is to provide our customers with easy, hassle-free mobility solutions by offering:
Free Consultations -
We begin each customer interaction with a free on-site consultation. When we meet with the customer in their home, we can learn more about their situation, understand their challenges, and fully assess any problem areas in their home or business. Only after we fully understand the customer's needs do we recommend a solution and provide a quote. If a customer has a problem, we solve it. That's why we prefer a consultative, low-pressure approach.
We have relationships with the leading product manufacturers in our field. Each of our franchise locations has the opportunity to sell a range of products from a variety of manufacturers, so we can offer our customers options. 101 Mobility franchises also offer rental options on some products - something that few other businesses in our industry can do!
Service and Support -
We offer a comprehensive product and installation training course where attendees learn how to install, troubleshoot, and service each of the core products that we offer. Following training, course graduates earn certifications from our manufacturers and have the expertise and confidence to best serve our customers. We're so confident in our products and service that we offer our signature one-year limited service warranty for each product that we sell and install, giving us a competitive edge and offering our customers additional peace of mind.
We operate in a need-based industry, so we emphasize SEO to enable customers to find us when they have a need and 101 Mobility franchisees receive on average over 1,100 leads per week network wide. Part of your franchise marketing fees will go toward a local, SEO-optimized website for your franchise location.
You may also attract customers through B2B relationships, VA referrals, agency referrals, and other marketing channels. We will work with you to develop a sales and marketing plan in your region.
This is another advantage of owning a 101 Mobility d=franchise ... there isn't a "typical day" as you are meeting and interacting with different customers every day AND providing solutions to their unique situation. As you go through your exploration process on 101 Mobility you'll have the chance to speak with 101 Mobility franchisees and hear more about their "typical day".
The initial investment necessary to begin operation of a 101 Mobility franchise ranges from $118,390 to $216,220. This includes $47,100 to $72,100 that must be paid to the franchisor or its affiliates.

Because results tend to vary widely from location to location and territory to territory that’s a hard question to directly answer, but the 101 Mobility Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) - Item 19 does provide averaged financial performance representations for the last 2 years.
Operating costs are lower than those for other retail-based shops, because physical 101 Mobility locations are often warehouses in areas with lower lease or real estate costs, and they require only a few employees. With such conservative overhead costs, it’s a concept ripe for success and healthy margins as demand rises.
After you've signed your franchise agreement the goal is to have you open for business within 3 months.
You do not need to have prior experience in the mobility equipment industry or have a highly technical background or installation skills;however, proven field sales experience is key.
No, but to become a franchise owner with 101 Mobility, we expect you will be fully dedicated to running the business. We also look for solid customer service, relationship-building, organizational, and business management skills.
