Emerging Acupuncture Franchise Opened 32 clinics in their second full year of operations
PHOENIX (PRWEB) January 02, 2019 - Modern Acupuncture™, the acupuncture franchise that aims to bring holistic treatment to the masses, has successfully positioned itself as the fastest growing health and wellness franchise in the U.S. in only its second full year of operation.
In 2018, 32 clinics opened across the U.S., bringing the total to 36 open clinics with 55 more slated to open in 2019 under modest projections. By comparison, The Joint, a chiropractic franchise also in the health and wellness category, opened only 17 locations in its second year of operations.
Other important company growth stats:
- 530 regional development licenses awarded
- 150 franchise licenses awarded
- More than 100,000 patient visits performed in 2018
- More than 100 licensed acupuncturists employed across the nation
- $8 million in gross revenue earned since company launch with no debt
Modern Acupuncture™ is the first franchise to deliver the natural health and cosmetic benefits of acupuncture to the masses in first class shopping centers alongside national brands such as Starbucks, Chipotle, Massage Envy and Whole Foods. The company’s franchise offering presents a ground floor opportunity for experienced multi-unit franchises and acupuncture practitioners to be a part of the fastest growing segment of alternative health care.
This year, the company also invested in a massive brand relaunch in an effort to build a national movement around acupuncture. The “Let’s Tingle” movement features new attention-grabbing creative with original photography by famous Swedish Photographer Henrik Halvarsson that is meant to capture attention and spark conversation. Additionally, Modern Acupuncture is developing programs in each local community where they have franchises to support first responders, teachers and veterans.
“Opening the first clinic in Massachusetts has brought a health and wellness option to the community that really didn’t exist in this setting before,” said Regional Developer and Franchisee Dr. Charles Anderson (MD, MPH, MBA), a Harvard trained newborn intensive care physician with degrees from Princeton University, John Hopkins and Boston University. For more than 30 years, he’s seen the healthcare industry change markedly, and is a firm believer in the necessity of preventative care options that Western medicine has been slow to adopt.
Over the last two years, the company has selectively and strategically awarded regional and franchise development rights to proven operators of similar health, beauty and wellness franchise concepts.
“Our regional developers and franchise owners have always had incredibly successful backgrounds with parallel health, beauty and wellness related concepts in the franchise sector,” said Chad Everts, co-founder and chief development officer of Modern Acupuncture™. “They’re unique skills and experience in these areas are the reason we’ve continued to be positioned as one of the fastest growing franchises.”
Some of the newest clinics have opened in Arizona, California, Texas, Louisiana, Washington, Florida, Massachusetts and South Carolina.
Unlike traditional acupuncture, a visit at Modern Acupuncture does not require the removal of any clothing to access full-body health. A visit to Modern Acupuncture™ feels like a relaxing retreat, where guests can unwind and possibly even fall asleep, zoning out to peaceful music all while experiencing the healing and/or cosmetic benefits of acupuncture. Sessions are typically 30 minutes or less, and walk-ins are welcome.
