Emerging Business of the Year
Abby Senior Care, Inc. was selected as the 2013 Emerging Business of the Year winner by the South Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, an award that goes to companies with five or more employees and has been in business one to four years. The Englewood business was started in 2008 and provides non-medical home care services to seniors recovering from surgery or dealing with chronic illness.
According to owners Bobbie Mecalo and David Hoppe, their goal is to provide a unique homecare system that allows seniors to "age in place" on their own terms. The way they've achieved this commendable goal has been a remarkable combination of marketing and tech savvy skills, a supportive employee culture, and a focus on serving the community.
When asked what they say to friends and family about their new business, they passionately replied, "we take care of old people, let them stay in their home and it's a cool thing to do." They have a commitment to stay in Colorado and have already turned down an offer to franchise their business model.
