What Is The Joint Chiropractic Franchise?

A membership-based franchise is an excellent opportunity for investors and chiropractors seeking to own their own business

The Joint has taken the chiropractic industry by storm and risen from a small number of stores to over 350 locations open across the country in less than a decade. The Joint offers customers a monthly membership and low costs for basic chiropractic care — starting at $39 per visit. No appointments required, no insurance needed and offering extended evening and weekend hours has given an entire generation of customers access to the health and wellness benefits of chiropractic maintenance care.

“The Joint is transforming the way chiropractic care is being delivered in this country,” says Peter Holt, CEO of The Joint. “We’re a disruptor. We’ve taken our model directly to retail settings — our clinics are next to brands like Chipotle and Starbucks. We’re easy, convenient and accessible to consumers; there’s no insurance necessary, there’s no appointment necessary. A regular customer can walk into any franchise location and get an adjustment done in five minutes. We’re the largest umbrella of chiropractic clinics in the world, and we’re only getting started. We’re growing from 350 units to over 1,700, and this is an excellent business for investors and chiropractic professionals to invest in.”

Proven business model makes The Joint franchise a smart investment

With a small footprint, limited overhead and a staff consisting of three to four employees, The Joint is easy to operate and boasts a proven business model that is unique in the $3 trillion healthcare industry*. Our membership model eliminates the need for insurance, while providing our franchise owners with a recurring revenue stream that helps to maximize profitability and potentially hasten the return on investment. Our model works for chiropractors seeking to own a simpler business that avoids the nightmare of insurance billing, and it works incredibly well for business investors who see the need for more accessible chiropractic care.

The Joint has been so successful as a franchise system that Entrepreneur named us the “Best of the Best” franchise in the healthcare services segment for 2016. We’re not new to praise: the same publication has included us in their prestigious “Franchise 500” list each year since 2012.  Inc. names us to their annual list of fastest-growing franchise systems and Franchise Times recently recognized our franchise in the top 10 of their Fast and Serious list.

Meet Our Franchisees

“As soon as I left The Joint, I immediately wanted to invest in The Joint. I was looking at franchising with Jimmy John’s, but after experiencing The Joint and speaking to their executive team, I knew that this was a business where I could do something positive for my community. The support of the executive team has been phenomenal. They have helped with site selection and provided a lot of guidance as to how to hire the right chiropractor. We’ve been successful without even having to market ourselves very much — people see our clinics next to their favorite stores or restaurants, and they come in curious. When they discover that we’re affordable and offer a membership model, it is very easy to win them over. Our model creates a pathway for our walk-in customers to return.”
– Chris Kemper, franchisee / manager of three franchise locations with The Joint in Nashville, Tennessee

“When you’re going through school, it’s year round and you come out with $200,000 in debt. My wife and I were looking at The Joint throughout chiropractic college. It was pretty enticing to us to get into a franchise where we wouldn’t be alone. The license prices aren’t too high and the build-outs are pretty simple. The Return on Investment is terrific, especially if you’re working the office as the chiropractor, which I am doing in my franchise. The Joint helps out a lot, especially with build-outs and picking the location. The Joint was an easy fit for me.”
– Dr. Chris Judge, owner of The Joint franchise clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona

“I knew The Joint was going to be around for a long time. I looked into the model and it made sense. I didn’t want a business with a lot of perishables. Coming out of the grocery industry for many years, I knew how difficult it was to manage perishables and gross profit. I thought it would be a good fit as the business model is based off of labor and fixed costs. It was going to be easy to manage because you don’t have a lot of variable costs in this business. I know exactly how my clinics are performing on a daily basis.”

– Tony Di Giusseppe, co-owner of five franchise locations with The Joint in Scottsdale, Arizona
