Marine Corps Officer Veterans Spring into Phoenix’s Entrepreneurship Scene

Brian and Naomi Hawkins Opened 101 Mobility Phoenix, Arizona’s first 101 Mobility Location, April 1st

Phoenix, April 6, 2015– Brian and Naomi Hawkins, owners of 101 Mobility® Phoenix, are kicking off the month of April with a new beginning. The married business partners opened Arizona’s first 101 Mobility® location on Wednesday, April 1. The Hawkins sell, install, and service mobility and accessibility equipment throughout the entire Greater Phoenix metro area, from Scottsdale to Sun City, across the valley to Avondale, Chandler, Gilbert and Apache Junction, and as far south as Casa Grande.

Brian and Naomi are both new to the world of entrepreneurship but are certainly familiar with needs of people living with mobility challenges in the area. “I retired in September 2014 after serving 20 years of active duty in the U.S. Marine Corps; Naomi has over 20 years of service and continues to serve in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve today,” Brian commented. “We have seen the needs of returning veterans who have given so much for our country, and we felt this business would give us the opportunity to continue to serve them and the greater community.”

The new 101 Mobility® Phoenix owners decided to pursue the franchise route out of appreciation for an organized and proven process. For the Hawkins, their post-military career goal was to become effective as quickly as possible. They cited 101 Mobility’s federal service contract with the Veterans Administration, excellent economies of scale, and growing online presence as key determining factors for choosing to bring the franchise to Arizona. After many years of service in the Marine Corps, Brian and Naomi look forward to being their own bosses. “If we can do that while serving the community, building value in the company and having fun, we will be very happy,” said Brian.
