LAKE SUCCESS, NY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ATC Healthcare, the industry leader in medical personnel franchising, today announced that it has brought on a seasoned franchise executive Scott Nichols as Vice President of Franchise Development.
Nichols has 30 years of experience in franchising and development roles, including Senior Vice President of Franchise Development for Charter Fitness and Director of Franchise Development for Sears Hometown & Outlet Stores. He joins ATC Healthcare from RBN Consulting in Northbrook, IL, where he worked as an Executive Franchise Consultant. His diverse background includes advising clients in the fast food, retail and service industries on all aspects of business/franchise development and operations.
“ATC Healthcare is growing from coast to coast, but there are multiple markets for the development of new franchises to support local healthcare facilities,” said ATC Healthcare CEO, David Savitsky. “Scott will be responsible for helping us tap into markets with large concentrations of healthcare facilities as well as supporting our partners who may acquire multiple territories in a given geographic region.”
At Charter Fitness, Nichols managed the development of Spenga Studio, a boutique fitness studio concept. Spenga Studio started the franchise in 2015 and sold 62 franchises during Nichols’ tenure. For Sears, he led the development of the Sears Home & Outlet Stores franchise, most of which were sold to multi-unit franchisees. As a result, Sears Home & Outlet Stores landed on Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 list.
Nichols noted that much of ATC Healthcare’s recent growth is the result of veteran franchisees expanding their footprints. “It’s an exciting time. The ATC model works well for franchisees who invest in themselves and their teams,” he said. “This is a great opportunity to propel the industry leader in healthcare staffing to new heights across the country.
The unprecedented demand for support staff in hospitals and other healthcare facilities is driving demand for new franchise owners and existing franchisees. Several of the new franchise locations represent existing franchisees expanding into new territories due to the continued need for healthcare personnel.
