Initial Investment and Startup Costs

A breakdown of the costs and fees associated with investing in the fastest growing chiropractic franchise in the United States

The Joint Chiropractic franchise is an easy business to open and has initial investment costs below those of other small-box retail franchises.

The total investment estimate to begin operations on a new chiropractic franchise ranges from $215,297 to $478,997**, making The Joint a low-cost investment opportunity with potential for high returns. Because our build-out costs are substantially lower than other brands in the health care segment, The Joint offers a quicker ramp-up time, which allows for a potentially faster return on investment. The franchise fee for your first chiropractic franchise is $39,900**.
