Overview

Medi-Weightloss® is the leading physician-supervised weight-loss brand in the United States. Its clinical program brings fast, safe, measurable results to thousands of patients. For you, as owner of a Medi-Weightloss® business, the franchise offers:

  • Unmatched financial opportunity – the top-third of locations earned an average of over $1.5 million in revenues last year, according to Item 19 of the FDD. That’s nearly $567,000 in net income before royalties & miscellaneous expenses.
  • A genuine turnkey business – manage it yourself, or hire a manager and run it semi-absentee; either way, the system is robust and the support is unbeatable. No need for any medical background.
  • A happy business – whether for health reasons, or just to prepare for a wedding or special event, clients are overjoyed to lose the weight.
  • Multiple revenue streams – you earn on patients’ check-up, counseling and regular weekly visits, and most patients will buy high-margin products too, from supplements to meals to exercise equipment.
  • A system that works – the average patient loses 20 pounds in their first month; and they do it safely, under medical supervision. This is the real thing, both for your customers and for you.

Three-fourths of Americans are overweight or obese, causing health problems from high blood pressure to cancer to Covid comorbidities. The need is great, the market size enormous.

Medi-Weightloss®: an essential service, especially in times like these.

Why Choose Us?

  • Science is what makes Medi-Weightloss® different. The program was developed by physicians, obesity researchers, dietitians, and experts in exercise physiology.
  • Earnings Potential – The top one-third of franchised locations earned an average of $1,515,854 in gross revenue in 2019. That’s $566,592 in net income before franchise fees and miscellaneous expenses.
  • Semi-Absentee Ownership – The model allows for semi-absentee ownership from Day One. Create your own plan to improve your quality of life.
  • Dedicated Support Team – The ratio of corporate staff to franchisees is 2:1. That provides for an unparalleled level of support and services.
  • Large Territories – Each store comes with a protected territory of 100,000 to 125,000 people. That’s a vast market for weight-loss services.
  • Recurring Revenue - Patients visit on a weekly basis for up to 12 weeks, and many return to lose more weight or for help in keeping the weight off.
  • Low Headcount – This is a high-touch business with a small, qualified team and very little staff turnover.
  • Many Locations Now Accept Insurance – insurance customers are insulated from cost, all they see is the benefit of your services.

Ideal Candidate

Medi-Weightloss® is looking for new owners with the financial qualifications and business savvy to make the most of this opportunity.

All a Medi-Weightloss® franchise needs from owners is that they can lead their team, create and support a positive working environment, and learn to follow a winning system. This is a highly robust business model, and business and marketing coaches are available to help work through any details.

In terms of personal skills, the Medi-Weightloss® owners who do best are professionals, often senior executives, with strengths in:

  • Business Development
  • Team Leadership
  • Marketing
  • Customer Service

Owners with a background in B2B sales are especially well-placed to capitalize on the tremendous opportunity for physician referrals and corporate wellness initiatives.

At the same time, many practicing physicians also see the value of an add-on business to help their patients take off harmful weight. However, there is no need whatsoever for a Medi-Weightloss® business owner to be a medical professional; and most aren’t.

Ideal owners will have a Net Worth of $750,000 and liquidity of up to $450,000. It’s best to plan on not taking money out of the new business for the first year (although of course breakeven may happen sooner).

History

Recognizing America's obesity epidemic, Edward Kaloust decided to do something about it in 2005, when he founded Medi-Weightloss®. Since then, he has built the company into one of the most exciting investment opportunities available today. Kaloust created a unique business model offering a clinically proven, internationally recognized, comprehensive program for obesity and overweight treatment.

To manage the daily operations, he enlisted the support of longtime friend, James Edlund, with Edlund serving as President from 2005 until his death in 2012. Edlund's expertise and years of experience in the medical field, particularly diagnostics, combined with Kaloust's 40 years of experience in finance and executive management, resulting in a system that provides all the tools and information necessary to operate a successful medical franchise. The principles of its two founders are still at work today, helping Medi-Weightloss® continually enhance the quality of its system and program.

Training And Support

One of the great strengths of Medi-Weightloss® is its extremely in-depth training. This kicks off with an intensive 5-day intro for owners and managers, focusing on the following areas:

  • The Medi-Weightloss® Program
  • The Adolescent Weight-Loss Program
  • Operating Systems (Advantage)
  • Electronic Medical Records
  • Sales Training and Customer Service
  • Medical Guidelines and Protocol
  • Compliance and Pharmacy Management
  • Signature Supplements and Products
  • Marketing Policies and Programs
  • Operations and Finance
  • Nutrition and Exercise Counseling

There is also a Professional Training program for your medical staff or contractors. Of course there is a vast library of online educational material, and there are ongoing training opportunities, site audits and public events as well.

Before your grand opening, a support consultant will come to work with you and your staff hands-on. This week-long visit focuses on areas like:

  • Daily Operations and Patient Flow
  • Counseling and Coaching Strategies
  • Creating a Positive and Consistent Patient Experience
  • Sales and Objection Handling
  • Inventory Management: Products, Supplements, and Medication
  • Office Procedures and Understanding Reports
  • Compliance

The Medi-Weightloss® slogan is “The One that Works!” Of course this is about patients’ losing weight with the Medi-Weightloss® system, even when they couldn’t do so before. But with these levels of training and support, it sums up the franchise as a whole, too.
