The obesity epidemic is everywhere in America, but it’s particularly prevalent in the South. People may think it’s the rich tradition of fried foods. However, there’s more to it than that.
This article looks at one state in particular: Texas. We’ll also explore why opening a Medi-Weightloss health care franchise in Texas to combat obesity may not just be a wise investment, but a life-changing one for the people who live there.
Bringing a Health Care Franchise Into Texas
It’s common to call something “Texas-sized” when we mean it’s exaggerated, a huge value, or disproportionately large. This is mainly due to Texas being the second largest state in the US (behind Alaska, thanks to all that wilderness). What isn’t great is “Texas-sized” can be used to describe the waistlines of Texans.
From 1999 to 2019, Texans averaged a higher obesity rate when compared to the overall US. In 2019, 34.8% of Texans rang in as obese compared to 30.9% of Americans in the rest of the country.
This is concerning because obesity is directly linked to increased rates of major chronic illnesses, like diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, stroke, and a multitude of other diseases. America has the 12th highest obesity rate in the world.
Needing more health care franchises isn’t something any state wants to be known for.
For Texas to be among the largest of states (and not in terms of square footage this time) in one of the largest countries across the globe, this is not good news. How many people are affected by that?
30 million. In fact, Texas, between 2020 and 2021, was the state that grew its population—in numbers—the most.
If the second biggest state (land-wise) is growing its people both in numbers and in waistline….
Well, that’s really quite alarming, isn’t it? More people than ever getting heavier in a single area poses a definite need for weight loss medical franchises in Texas.
The State of Texas’s Health and Wellness Industry
It’s not just a medical franchise opportunity in Texas; it’s really quite imperative to give the people of Texas a way to get healthier that actually works.
The good news is, there’s a market for health franchises in Texas. The city of Austin, for example, was named one of the “fittest cities in America” by the American Council on Sports Medicine in 2017 because of its robust fitness culture, holistic healthcare, and access to healthy foods.
Texas has more than 2,500 health clubs visited by more than 5 million Texans wishing to lose weight and stay fit. Texans want to get healthier, as evidenced by the upswing in 2021 in gym memberships in North Texas. Those numbers are even beating the typical January New Year’s Resolution membership spikes.
Why? Because people who spent the last couple of years working from home during the pandemic saw the scale creep up, and they also have missed human connection. Now that life is resuming something like normality, people are reshuffling their priorities—in-person interaction combined with getting healthier and losing weight.
Even in Texas. People living in the state don’t want Texas-sized waistlines, and they’re ready to do what it takes to stop the expansion. A Medi-Weightloss health care franchise in Texas could be exactly what Texans are looking for.

Effective Weight Loss Programs
A Medi-Weightloss health franchise in Texas would be positioned to fight the obesity epidemic in a battleground state with effective, proven weight loss techniques. There’s a reason Medi-Weightloss health care franchises have seen our patients lose more than 8 million pounds across our locations nationwide.
Medi-Weightloss’s medically supervised weight loss programs work. This is not a franchise with a product or service built on a foundation of shaky science. It’s proven, it works, and it is changing lives. Medi-Weightloss patients are:
- Reducing or entirely eliminating their prescription medication dependencies as they improve their health
- Losing inches off their bodies and relieving stress on their joints
- Improving their results on blood work testing, EKGs, and overall body composition analyses
- Learning techniques to maintain a lifelong change to their habits and nutrition so they’ll be able to sustain their newfound health with confidence
Medi-Weightloss health care franchises in Texas can do the same.
Medi-Weightloss Accepts Insurance
By accepting insurance, we’re sending two messages to patients:
- Our programs are legitimate and insurance companies trust them enough that they’ll cover a portion or all of them
- We’ll do whatever we can to help you because it’s not all about money for us
Opening a Medi-Weightloss health care franchise in Texas may include a desire to earn on an investment, but a significant number of our franchisees open their clinics to help people. In fact, some of them have been patients of Medi-Weightloss themselves.
There is a real need for Medi-Weightloss health care franchises in Texas, so there’s a chance to both change lives and earn investment returns. Accepting insurance contributes to that reality.
