Entrepreneur Magazine Names The Joint Chiropractic as No. 1 Health Franchise
Fast-growing chiropractic franchise earns the top spot on list of health & wellness franchise opportunities
The Joint Chiropractic®, the fastest growing chiropractic franchise in the country, has claimed the top spot on Entrepreneur Magazine’s 2021 Franchise 500 list after being named the No. 1 franchise in the Health category.
“This recognition is yet another signal that this is the right time for entrepreneurs to invest in a smart business model that not only has a proven and successful track record, but also provides customers with everyday pain relief,” said Peter D. Holt, President and CEO of The Joint Corp.
Entrepreneur magazine, the premier source for everything small business, releases its esteemed ranking every year. The Joint not only claimed the number one spot in the Health category, but also moved up 20 positions from last year.
“We call them the ‘best of the best’—the franchises that ranked not only in our increasingly competitive Franchise 500 list this year but also at the top of their respective industry categories,” Entrepreneur magazine said.
Companies that make the list were evaluated on more than 150 data points, such as areas of cost and fees, size and growth, franchisee support, brand strength, as well as financial strength and stability.
The Joint was recognized for boasting nearly 550 clinics as of 2020, showing a more than 42% increase over the past three years.
Founded in 1999, The Joint has changed the $15 billion chiropractic industry by making chiropractic care more accessible, convenient and affordable than traditional chiropractic clinics.
“We haven’t altered chiropractic care; the reason we’re so influential is that we have revolutionized access to chiropractic care,” Holt said. “We’ve made access to pain management convenient for people by placing our clinics in small box retail settings, next to where we get our coffee, our groceries and cut our hair.”
For entrepreneurs, The Joint offers simple construction and build outs with a small footprint, which improves the real estate approval process.
A simple operating model is also attracting more aspiring business owners than ever. Clinics require minimal staffing, and the primary employees who are responsible for carrying out the business model is a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic. Patient files and paperwork, too, are electronic and streamlined.
“The reason why so many entrepreneurs and chiropractors are investing in The Joint is because our unit economics are so strong,” Holt said. “I’ve been building and managing franchise systems for over 30 years, and predominantly small box retail space, and I have never seen such strong unit economics. On top of that, pain isn’t going away. We’re looking for ways to manage our pain in a holistic way, and that is what The Joint provides.”
