SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., March 20, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Franchise Times, one of the nation's premier publications reporting on the franchise industry, recently announced that The Joint Corp. franchise has been named to its "Fast & Serious" list of the 40 fastest growing franchise systems in the nation.
The results of the list are compiled after three years of research, investigating which brands have sustainable growth momentum over the long term. The Joint's placement as No. 16 is warranted, as the brand is the nation's fastest growing chiropractic franchise. This is the second consecutive year that The Joint has been honored with this distinction.
"After finishing 2013 with 22 units, and growing to 246 by the end of 2014, The Joint is now up to 358 locations with plans to expand beyond its areas of heaviest coverage in the Southeast and Southwest U.S," wrote Franchise Times about The Joint, whom they describe as a "pioneer in the franchised medical provider category."
Peter D. Holt, president and CEO of The Joint, spoke to the magazine about the brand's smart-growth tactics that are going to see the brand's aggressive expansion plans continue into 2017. After opening nearly 55 locations in 2016, the brand aims to hit well above that number in 2017.
"Focus on the franchisee," Holt said in the article, as to the methodology The Joint employs to hit growth targets. "If growth is not based on finding qualified franchisees who believe and understand and can provide that world-class customer service, it's really hard to sustain long-term growth for a franchise system."
The Joint offers an innovative, patient-friendly model that allows guests access to affordable, quality chiropractic care on their terms. Appointments aren't necessary, the clinic offers extended hours that include evenings and weekends and the need for insurance is eliminated as The Joint's membership plans and packages are typically less costly than most insurance copays.
