ActiveRx Targets South Carolina for Major Expansion
National Franchise of Strengtherapy® Centers to Bring 13 Units to the State by 2016
WESTBOROUGH, Mass. - July 07, 2015 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - On a mission to redefine aging, and the way people think about aging, ActiveRx, a national franchise brand of innovative strength and wellness centers known as Strengtherapy Centers, has identified South Carolina as a major expansion hub. Company executives recently unveiled plans to bring three to five units to the area by the end of this year and add an additional six to eight units in 2016.
The rapidly expanding brand known for its focus on strength regeneration has put a strong emphasis on expansion in the South Carolina region, with a total of eight territories identified for development. These territories include Greenville, Columbia, Hilton Head, Rock Hill, Myrtle Beach, Charleston, as well as Savannah and Augusta, Georgia. The brand has one established location successfully operating in Mt. Pleasant, S.C.
“South Carolina has experienced a significant growth of older adults over the last few decades. In fact, the state’s senior population is expected to double in the next 15 years,” said Mark Osborn, Regional Developer for the South Carolina Region. “These statistics coupled with our brand’s dedication to enhancing the quality of life for those 60 and older, positions us perfectly for long term growth in the state.”
Each ActiveRx location offers a scientifically proven system called Strengtherapy, which regenerates years of functional strength with a minimal time investment. Strengtherapy provides powerful, life-altering improvements in function, fall prevention, disease prevention and quality of life. ActiveRx has built their Strengtherapy system on rigorous scientific research and is forging a path to evidenced-based strength regeneration.
This recent development announcement closely follows an initiative the Massachusetts-based company launched that includes a franchise ownership program aimed at attracting professional physical therapists that will extend the company’s footprint nationally. As well as recruiting physical therapists who are looking to own their own business, the brand is searching for other qualified candidates including experienced multi-unit franchise operators and senior care franchise owners who are looking to broaden their portfolios.
With 11 locations now open across the U.S. including Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, South Carolina and Texas, ActiveRx is providing a comprehensive culture of care which enables its members to feel secure in an atmosphere where they can concentrate on improving their lives, and continue to change the way they think and feel about aging. Looking to further expand its mission, ActiveRx has signed agreements for a total of 20 locations in the U.S. and anticipates selling another 15 units prior to year-end 2015.
Based in Westborough, Massachusetts, ActiveRx is the premiere destination for people 60 and older looking to enhance their quality of life by increasing not only the power of their bodies but also their confidence, camaraderie and independence. Through its proprietary Strengtherapy system, a scientifically proven method that regenerates years of functional strength with a minimal time investment, ActiveRx restores vitality and the ability to live life to the fullest.
