You Don’t Need a Medical Background to Franchise with The Joint
The fastest-growing chiropractic franchise has a simple business model that is attracting entrepreneurs with no prior medical background
The Joint, the nation’s fastest-growing chiropractic franchise, recently celebrated 400 locations open across the country. That milestone would have been unthinkable if the business model was designed for only those with experience in owning and operating a chiropractic clinics. While it is true that chiropractors are franchising with The Joint in large numbers, their reason is the same as any other entrepreneur’s: the business model is easy to understand.
Walk into one of The Joint’s more than 400 clinics in the United States, and you will see a simple layout: one person who welcomes patients, and one or two doctors treating patients expertly and efficiently. By only performing spinal alignments conducted by hand, doctors who work for The Joint can see many more patients each day than a traditional chiropractic clinic. This is strategic as The Joint is a cash-model business that requires no appointments and no insurance. Clinics are placed in highly-visible retail settings next to supermarkets, coffee shops and restaurants, and they are open nights and weekends. The Joint is not only making chiropractic care more accessible to consumers, it also is making owning a chiropractic clinic more accessible to entrepreneurs.
An excellent example is Paul Trindel, who was a multi-unit owner of Cold Stone Creamery before becoming a multi-unit franchisee with The Joint and regional developer for clinics in North Carolina and Tennessee.
“The Joint is far simpler to open and manage than a food business,” Trindel says. “I often joke that it causes a lot less brain damage. At my ice cream businesses, I’m dealing with teenagers, who can be flaky, late and unprofessional. At The Joint, it’s completely the opposite. Your staff shares the same purpose you do, which is to help people get the care they need.”
Founded in 1999, The Joint is leading the way in making chiropractic care an essential and affordable part of health and wellness for millions of people seeking relief from back, neck and joint pain. As a result, The Joint can treat many more patients than a traditional chiropractic clinic by a large margin. According to the brand’s most recent Franchise Disclosure Document, The Joint reported weekly patient visits that were 152 percent higher than those to individually-owned clinics.
For Robb Quinlan, who was a professional baseball player with the Los Angeles Angels before becoming the owner of four franchise clinics with The Joint in Minneapolis, Minnesota, The Joint is a way to get into business that serves a noble purpose in the community.
“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 is the future of the chiropractic industry,” Quinlan says. “The Joint is a great business for entrepreneurs who want to make a difference.”
