DAVIE, Fla. (April 04, 2014) - Dr. G's Franchising Companies, LLC, the parent company of Dr. G's Weight Loss & Wellness, a physician-supervised weight loss and wellness program, has announced the opening of six new clinics in the U.S. increasing its existing portfolio in the country to 27.
The new clinics are located in Arizona, Florida, Kentucky, New York and North Carolina and are all part of a robust expansion plan. Since the company started selling franchises in 2010, Dr.G's Weight Loss & Wellness has grown rapidly, establishing a presence in eight U.S. states and more than 27 territories.
"Dr. G's Weight Loss & Wellness program was developed to give patients the tools to help them lead healthier and more joyous lives," said Charlotte Russell, Chief Executive Officer, Dr. G's Franchising Companies. "We are committed to actively growing our presence throughout the U.S. and abroad, while helping improve an even-larger number of people's lives."
Unlike most weight loss programs where one size fits all, Dr. G's Weight Loss & Wellness program is tailored to fit clients' individual needs, taking into account their blood work, EKG, metabolic rate, body composition and behavioral history and lifestyle aspirations.
Founded by Dr. Charles Goldsmith in 1994, individualized weight loss programs may incorporate a combination of FDA-approved medication, proprietary herbal supplements, custom meal plans, nutritional products and detailed exercise programs to help clients lose weight and keep it off. The program has helped over 125,000 patients lose more than one million pounds.
Dr. G's Franchising Companies also continues to expand the Dr. G's Weight Loss & Wellness brand internationally with the recent launch of its first clinic in Mexico City.
Seven clinics are now open across six countries. Clinics in Panama and Bosques de las Lomas in western Mexico City are preparing their grand openings.
As part of its global expansion strategy, the company recently rolled out its Physician's Model, which allows medical practitioners to add Dr. G's Weight Loss & Wellness to their existing practice for a lower cost than the traditional model. In the new model, physicians pay a low franchise fee, which includes training, as well as a monthly fee for corporate support services.
"We are confident this new model is going to help us gain a bigger share of the national and international markets," added Russell. "We see great potential in it as it addresses the demands and needs of a different type of franchisee -one who is already established and successful, but is looking for an additional revenue stream. As we enter the second quarter, we look forward to bringing business success to many more physicians and a real weight solution to many more patients."
