2015 Franchise Forecast: Sunny Skies

The International Franchise Association (IFA) is once again predicting solid growth for the franchising industry in 2015. Since the IFA’s 2014 growth predictions were on target, its 2015 predictions give franchisees and potential franchisees a reason to celebrate.

In fact, there’s never been a more exciting time to become a franchisee, specifically in the healthcare industry. Today, more than one in three Americans older than 20 is considered obese — up from about one in four 20 years ago. And thanks to the holidays (when overeating is practically a rite of passage) and New Year’s resolutions, there are millions of people looking to lose extra pounds right now.

Established in 2005, Medi-Weightloss® is a clinically proven, financially rewarding opportunity for physicians and investors. There are more than 80 locations in the U.S. alone, with locations in Dubai as well. The Medi-Weightloss® Program really works. It’s so successful that patients have lost nearly 3 million pounds combined nationwide.

Through this exciting franchise opportunity, physicians and investors can provide a proven obesity treatment program to consumers while reaping the financial rewards. Year after year, losing weight is the No. 1 resolution. Now is the perfect time to join the multibillion dollar weight loss industry and help more people turn their weight loss dreams into reality.
