The Joint Franchise Opportunity

The Joint’s mission is to improve quality of life through routine and affordable chiropractic care.

Franchising with The Joint

Business Model

Improving quality of life through routine and affordable chiropractic care. The Joint does this by offering a no insurance, no appointment base membership model where patients can come into a clinic on their own time and receive an adjustment in any of their 585+ locations. The membership model and our proprietary software allows patients to receive adjustments in any of our clinics around the country, not just at their home clinic.

The network consists of modern, consumer-friendly chiropractic clinics and individually selected Doctor of Chiropractic that deliver quality pain relief and preventative care on a low-cost membership basis.

Marketing Support

Brand Strategy:

The franchisor’s mission statement is simple: “Improve quality of life through routine and affordable chiropractic care.” This has been further deconstructed to facilitate action steps at every organizational level. CEO Peter Holt conveyed the three pillars that will sustain our future growth:

  1. Accessibility- The Joint has the largest network of chiropractic care in the country, with 585 clinics. By moving chiropractic from hospitals and medical offices to a retail setting the franchisor can make care available at affordable prices through a monthly membership. Patients members need only scan their token at any location, as no appointment is necessary, and the average wait time is less than 15 minutes.
  2. Credibility- This is achieved by providing consistent experiences with courteous, well-trained Doctors of Chiropractic. Additionally, The Joint is the largest publisher of chiropractic content in the public domain. The franchisor is working to grow general acceptance for chiropractic, with great success. In 2021, more than 27% of new patients to The Joint had never seen a chiropractor before.
  3. Empathy- Getting people out of pain and helping them live better is what the brand is about—that is, cultivating a wellness mentality that facilitates frequent visits, as opposed to the model of diagnosing and repairing specific ailments when the body breaks down. With millions in pain and a national opioid crisis, The Joint offers people a natural, drug-free path to lead their best life.
Training Programs

Initial training includes a week of in clinic training at a regional training clinic followed by a week of corporate training and new clinic opening support. Ongoing training and ongoing support and consulting is through local Regional Developers and Franchise Business Consultants through the learning center LMS platform.

The Joint’s Regional Developers and Franchise Business Consultants work with Franchisees to Identify opportunities to improve revenue and patient experience by analyzing all aspects of a clinic’s performance. Support tools include labor optimization models, one page business plans and tool kits covering every aspect of the business.
