The Joint Franchise Announces New Area Developer for Minnesota
The fastest-growing chiropractic franchise takes steps to foster further growth in the North Star State
The Joint, the nation’s fastest-growing chiropractic franchise, recently announced aggressive expansion plans for Minnesota, with plans to open dozens of new clinics in the North Star State over the coming years. In order to facilitate the expansion efforts, The Joint is pleased to announce that multi-unit franchisees, Robb Quinlan and Angie Selander, will serve as regional developers for the state of Minnesota.
If the name Robb Quinlan sounds familiar, that’s because he played eight seasons of Major League Baseball as an infielder with the Los Angeles Angels. Robb became a proponent of chiropractic care as a ball player, as the wear and tear of injuries forced him to seek treatment. He credits chiropractic care with not only saving his career in the major leagues, but keeping him healthy in his job as entrepreneur.
“I was injured during my career in baseball, and chiropractic care really helped me get my career back on track,” Robb says. “Ever since, I’ve been an advocate for chiropractic care. When I discovered The Joint, and I saw how they were making chiropractic care more accessible, more affordable and convenient for people, I knew that I wanted to become a franchisee. I recognized that The Joint was the future of the chiropractic industry.”
Robb partnered with Angie to bring The Joint to the Twin Cities area of Minneapolis and St. Paul, and together, they opened three clinics, with a fourth in development. Now, the pair wants to share their expertise as proven franchise owners with The Joint to help other entrepreneurs in Minnesota find success with the fastest growing chiropractic franchise in the nation.
“Before I franchised with The Joint, I worked as a vendor, serving dozens of franchise systems, which gave me a unique perspective to determine if The Joint was a worthy brand to invest in,” Angie says. “The Joint has exceeded our expectations. We’ve rapidly scaled up to multi-unit locations without having any experience in the chiropractic industry. We know firsthand that the demand for chiropractic care in Minnesota is overwhelming, and we’re excited to help new entrepreneurs build a future of their own making in a business that is easy to run and also makes a tremendous difference in the communities we serve.”
What makes The Joint a worthy investment opportunity?
Founded in 1999, The Joint is leading the way in making chiropractic care an essential and affordable part of health and wellness for the millions of people seeking relief from back, neck and joint pain. Rapid expansion is proof that The Joint is meeting an enormous need in communities across the country. In the last few years, The Joint has grown consistently, with now close to 400 locations open or in development across the United States.

The reason for the brand’s rapid growth is simple: The Joint is making chiropractic care more accessible than ever before. The Joint clinics are placed strategically next to community mainstays such as supermarkets, coffee shops, restaurants and hair salons. With no appointments, no insurance and no hassle, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that The Joint is able to serve far more people than traditional clinics could ever imagine. According to our most recent Franchise Disclosure Document, the average weekly visit count numbers close to 260, and new customer visits are up in double digits.
“The Joint is the most efficient health care delivery model in the country,” Angie says. “Our patients can seek care in any of our over 380 locations nationally and receive the same experience. The Joint is one of the lowest-costing chiropractic care providers on the market, while also being one of the highest-quality deliverers of care. Where else can you go and to receive care without an appointment at 6:30 at night?”
The Joint is a low-cost investment opportunity with high potential returns
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 uncommon 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 their 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 was named to Entrepreneur magazine’s prestigious annual Franchise 500 list of the top franchise systems to invest in for 2017. It’s easy to see why, as Entrepreneur notes, that The Joint grew by a phenomenal 40 franchise locations from 2015 to 2016, continuing a growth spurt that hasn’t slowed since The Joint began franchising in 2006.
With the total financial estimate to begin operations on a new chiropractic franchise ranging from $211,400 – $339,500, The Joint is a low-cost investment opportunity with potential for high returns.
As Robb and Angie embark on their new path of growing The Joint in Minnesota, they have some expert advice as to what qualities you need to have in order to be successful with The Joint:
“Minnesota is the third largest provider of chiropractic care in the U.S.,” Robb says. “We’re looking for entrepreneurs who are driven, motivated and ready to own a business that makes a difference. The future is very bright for The Joint in Minnesota.”
