Former Energy Professional Viking Deitrich To Open New Griswold Home Care in Texas
After evaluating 17 other franchise opportunities, Deitrich is joining the fast-growing senior care franchise with a new location in Spring Valley.
March 4, 2021 – Blue Bell, Pa. – Continuing its steady expansion into key growth markets, Griswold Home Care, a 200-location leader in senior care, has awarded a franchise in Spring Valley, TX to Viking Dietrich. The new location marks the brand’s 20th location in Texas, with plans to add an additional 15 locations.
“Viking told me from the start that he wanted to have a business where he would make a direct impact on clients and be involved in his community,” said Nicole Kosmaceski, Griswold’s franchise development manager. “He was thrilled to learn his vision matches our purpose here at Griswold. His excitement was so contagious that he influenced a colleague to partner up and buy an adjacent territory, another deal that could be made public within the week.”
After deciding to step away from a successful career in energy to pursue franchise ownership, Dietrich carefully researched 17 different franchise opportunities. After learning about Griswold’s dedication to helping its owners make a difference in people’s lives, Dietrich says he knew he had found the right fit with the senior care brand.
“I worked with bigger corporations during my time in the energy industry, and I was feeling a huge void. I wasn’t directly giving back to customers,” said Dietrich. “Before landing on Griswold, I researched numerous brands, from oil changes to home restoration services, but the aspect of directly having a positive effect on individuals in the community was what ultimately sold me on Griswold.”
Griswold Home Care is the first non-medical franchise company in the United States to offer in-home care to seniors and adults with disabilities, illnesses and injuries. The franchise is dedicated to helping adults maintain quality of life through services including companion care, personal care, respite care, light-duty housekeeping and incidental transportation.
“Griswold Home Care is one of America’s top home care companies, and franchise development will continue to be a priority,” said CEO Michael Slupecki. “Our purpose is our motto: We give people the help they need to live in the place they love. There has never been a better reason to build a bright future as a franchisee than by taking care of those who need you the most.”

“Also, this is also one of the businesses that performs even better in a struggling economy”, Tim Bleakley explains. “When people are downsized,they are forced to look for other options. Many of these people gravitate to franchises because of the proven systems, the high success rates, and the extensive training and support programs. Plus,since we work with a higher level of clientele, those that need financing are easily able to obtain it, especially because we work directly with companies that provide business loans and companies that help our clients access their 401K funds without penalties."
