6 Characteristics of Successful Franchisees

6 Characteristics of Successful Franchisees

It probably comes as little surprise that every franchisee hopes to be successful. But how exactly does one do that? What is it that separates a top performing business owner from an average one? Though factors like market, location, and experience play a role, especially in a weight loss franchise, character is a large determinant for success.

Successful Franchisees Are:

1. Optimistic

Research shows that optimistic people are more creative and forward-thinking than their pessimistic peers. Optimists are also more likely to act on a problem or goal, rather than wait for it to resolve itself. In the world of a weight loss franchise, nothing is more important to your clients or business than a franchisee with a positive, can-do outlook.

2. Personable

Successful franchisees have strong interpersonal skills and can work with virtually any customer, patient, or employee. As the franchisee, you have to be a strong leader who hires only the best people for each position and instills a sense of loyalty, value, and trust in your employees.

3. Goal-Oriented

In the world of business, the top franchisees are always those who consistently set short and long-term goals. Knowing exactly what you want to achieve, like a certain amount of new members each month, is the first step in actually accomplishing it.

4. Willing to Learn

Despite what many people think, franchisees aren’t typically risk takers. The beauty behind a franchise such as Medi-Weightloss® is that our weight loss model has already been proven successful. This means franchisees have to be willing to learn from those already succeeding in the industry. As they say in the franchise world — you’re “in business for yourself, not by yourself.”

5. Hard Working

What sets Medi-Weightloss® apart from many other franchises is that our system is completely turn-key ready. That isn’t to say that our franchisees don’t still work tirelessly to reach their goals and achieve record-breaking success. If you don’t want to take our word for it, we’ll let the numbers speak for themselves. Recently, the top one-third of our franchisees reported over $1 million in gross revenue. If that’s not evidence of hard work, we don’t know what is!

6. Passionate

Oprah Winfrey said it best when she said:


“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you."


At Medi-Weightloss®, each franchisee is excited about changing lives for the better. They’re concerned with so much more than pounds on a scale. Our program is run by medical professionals who truly care about giving people the tools to live their healthiest life.
