The fast-growing chiropractic franchise is actively seeking savvy entrepreneurs and existing chiropractors to open new locations in the Lonestar State
The Joint Chiropractic® franchise is revolutionizing the chiropractic industry by ushering in a level of mainstream credibility for the $18 billion chiropractic market. With more than 600 locations open and many more in development throughout the United States, 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 without the use of prescription drugs.
Now, The Joint is actively seeking savvy entrepreneurs and chiropractors in the Texas metropolitan areas of Austin, Dallas – Ft. Worth, Houston, and San Antonio. Franchising with The Joint comes with a proven business model, an exceptional executive team that supports you in all aspects of the business, and a service that will help many Texan residents who are suffering from back and neck pain.
“We haven’t revolutionized chiropractic care; the reason why we’re so powerful is that we have revolutionized access to chiropractic care,” says Peter Holt, President of The Joint. “We’ve made pain management so much easier for people by placing our clinics in small box retail settings, next to where we get our coffee, our groceries, and cut our hair. The reason why so many entrepreneurs and chiropractors are investing in The Joint is because our unit economics are strong. I’ve been building and managing franchise systems for over 30 years, and in 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.”
Why Texas? Why Now?
With nearly 17 million people in the metropolitan areas of Austin, Dallas – Ft. Worth, Houston, and San Antonio combined, it is safe to say that cities have many people who are in dire need of treatment for their back and neck pain. According to The Good Body, the rising levels of obesity, sedentary work and home lifestyles, stress, and poor diet all contribute to the astonishing fact that 80% of Americans will experience back pain in their lifetimes.
“The demand for this concept is only getting more and more relevant,” Holt says. “We’re a nation that is facing some very serious issues. We have an obesity epidemic, with 75% of Americans overweight and 34% of them obese, which creates huge issues of pain. Then we have the opioid epidemic and 75,000 people died of an overdose last year from opioids. With The Joint, we have a natural, holistic way for people to deal with their pain — people don’t want to go under the knife, they don’t want to take opioids. We’re currently the largest chiropractic franchise in the world and we’re only getting started because holistic and natural ways to treat pain are only going to become more sought after going forward.”
A recession-resistant business model and tremendous unit economics makes The Joint a wise investment
The outbreak of COVID-19 radically changed the American economy overnight – and only essential businesses were allowed to operate. As a brand that helps people find relief from chronic neck and back pain, The Joint clinics were deemed essential and our franchise owners were able to continue to help their patients heal during the crisis.
The resiliency of The Joint and our v-shaped recovery during the pandemic is a testament to our proven business model. Our clinics require a small footprint, limited overhead, staff consisting of three to four employees, and are designed to maximize profitability and growth.
Our membership model eliminates the need for insurance while providing our franchise owners with a recurring revenue stream that helps maximize profitability and potentially quickens the return on investment. Our model works for chiropractors seeking to own a business that avoids the nightmare of insurance billing and it works equally well for business investors who see the need for more accessible chiropractic care.
Strong Unit Economics. The Joint recently published their latest Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) in order to provide you with a detailed and transparent look into the financial performance of The Joint franchise clinics. The new FDD reports on the entirety of the franchise clinics that were open the full year of 2020 (488 total) and The Joint couldn’t be prouder of the results. The average gross sales for all the franchise clinics in operation in 2020 was $488,771. The top quartile clinics average $777,608. The Joint’s franchise clinics saw 297 patients on a weekly basis*.
“There is no doubt that The Joint is really connecting with entrepreneurs and chiropractors who are seeking a proven business model that can dramatically improve lives,” says Eric Simon, Vice President of Franchise Sales & Development with The Joint. “We’re incredibly proud that our franchise owners continue to be more profitable and treat more people than traditional chiropractic clinics by a large margin. Our continued nationwide growth is a reflection of both the profit potential of this business and our ability to connect with consumers in growing numbers. For entrepreneurs, The Joint is a brand that you invest in if you want to make an impact and earn a great living at the same time.”

Meet Anne and David Glover, Regional Developer for The Joint in Texas
Anne and David Glover were early adopters of The Joint – and were some of the very first investors in the system. As franchise owners with Massage Envy, Anne and David were experienced entrepreneurs who recognized right away that The Joint’s straightforward business model was ready to truly disrupt the chiropractic space for the better.
The couple became The Joint’s first Regional Developers in Texas, where they have helped open over 105 clinics, with 35 clinics now in development. Their success is the result of their passion for The Joint’s mission to provide affordable and accessible chiropractic care, as well as to help entrepreneurs thrive in a business that makes a meaningful impact in people’s lives.
“This really is the right business at the right time,” Anne says. “People are looking for holistic ways to relieve pain as an alternative to prescription drugs and unnecessary surgeries. In our years developing The Joint, we know that this model works. It not only helps people in pain, but it also provides entrepreneurs with a business that is based on recurring revenue streams, and is highly scalable.”
The Glovers, along with their daughter, Grace Rollinger
With 65 more planned locations for the major metro areas of state of Texas, the Glovers are actively seeking savvy entrepreneurs who are ready to thrive as multi-unit operators. In addition to the world class support provided by corporate, the Glovers have added an additional layer of local expertise, coaching and support that Texas franchise owners with The Joint benefit from.
“We’re looking for passionate people to franchise with us,” David says. “You have to have a passion for people and for chiropractic care – in fact, some of our most successful owners have been former patients. We also look for people with a strong background in sales & marketing, as you have to be a great communicator. With limited territory available, now is the perfect time to franchise with The Joint because this availability won’t last long. We’re seeing a tremendous amount of interest from entrepreneurs, and we’re excited to help them grow.”
