Are you passionate about running a business that’s not only profitable, but helps others too? If so, you may be exactly the type of franchisee we’re looking for at Medi-Weightloss®! While we understand that we are first and foremost a business, we know that what really drives success in business is being passionate about what you do and who you serve. At Medi-Weightloss®, our franchisees run a booming business that positively affects the members of their community. Here is how:
The Beauty of Franchising.
Franchising provides physicians, OB/GYNs, and medical professionals alike the opportunity to easily expand their business, increase their revenue, and make a positive impact on the lives of thousands.
There is Minimal Risk.
Unlike a traditional start-up company, franchising is low risk. How can that be, you ask? It’s simple. After 12 years in the industry, we’ve learned just about everything there is to know about running a weight loss business. Not to mention, we have a flourishing fan base and a distinguished title as an industry leader in weight loss.
Essentially, the bulk of the hard work has been done for you! Our turn-key operation takes the guesswork out of running a franchise and allows you to focus on what really matters — your patients.
You Get to Be “The Boss.”
After years as a medical professional, do you feel like it’s time for you to call the shots? When you open a Medi-Weightloss®, you’re in control of everything from day-to-day operations to your five-year projections and goals.
The Ability to Expand.
Want even more of a challenge?Medi-Weightloss® franchisees are able to open multiple locations, potentially doubling or tripling their profits while reaching several more patients. As mentioned before, you call the shots now! If you decide to open multiple locations, you can selectively hire and choose trusted employees to effectively operate your business.
We Handle Lots of the Marketing.
There’s no denying it — marketing is tricky, especially proper marketing strategy for a thriving medical business! Luckily, that’s where we come in! With established branding, logos, color schemes, demographics, and messaging, our marketing team sets franchisees up for near-to instant success.
Offering Support and Guidance for Years to Come.
While many of our franchisees are experts in their field of medicine, we understand that not every medical professional also has a business background — in fact, most of them don’t. We are here to say, that’s okay!
At Medi-Weightloss®, We’re a Team
It’s simple — when our franchisees succeed, we all succeed! That’s why we work tirelessly to make opening and running your franchise as simple as possible.

Medi-Weightloss®: Fighting the Obesity Epidemic, One Location at a Time
At Medi-Weightloss®, our goal is simple — to help individuals lose unnecessary weight and live their healthiest lives.
Obesity: Officially an Epidemic in America
It was in 2013 that the American Medical Association declared obesity both a disease and a nationwide epidemic, forever changing the way medical professionals treat and speak about obesity.
Obesity by the Numbers
In America and worldwide, we’re currently experiencing the highest rates of obesity, ever.
Today, nearly 1/3 of adults are overweight.
Additionally, more than 1/3 of adults are obese.
If obesity rates continue as they are now, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) predicts nearly 50% of Americans will be obese by 2030.
112,000 deaths are associated with obesity each year in the United States.
Globally, more than 1.9 billion adults were overweight in 2016.
Worldwide, obesity and being overweight are now linked to more deaths than being underweight.
The Science Behind Medi-Weightloss®
Despite the fact that 2/3 of Americans are overweight or obese, 53% of Americans said they wanted to or were actively trying to lose weight, according to a 2016 Gallup poll. So what’s holding them back? For many adults, it’s fad diets.
Fad diets promise rapid weight loss, so it’s no surprise many people are drawn to them. What these fad diets don’t tell you is that:
Most of the weight you’re losing isn’t actually fat, but rather water weight.
Fad dieting largely requires you to drastically cut your calorie intake, which isn’t healthy.
The moment your diet ends, you’ll likely gain all of the weight back.
So how is Medi-Weightloss® different? First and foremost, there’s evidence-based science behind our weight loss plan. For years, physicians and weight loss professionals have learned exactly what it takes to lose weight and, more importantly, keep it off. We also pride ourselves on having a plan that is anything but one-size fits all.
How We’re Combating Rising Rates of Obesity
Like we said, we take a full-lifestyle approach to weight loss, looking at a lot more than just calorie consumption (or lack thereof).
Within our program, we target four main factors:
Eating habits: We offer a wide variety of Signature Supplements and Products that are designed to be equal parts nutritious and delicious. In addition to weight loss, many of our patients have also experienced more stable and healthy levels of blood glucose, cholesterol, HgA1c, triglycerides, and blood pressure.
Physical activity: After a patient is comfortable on their new diet, we begin to add minimal amounts of exercise to their daily routine. Over time, our trainers will gradually increase a patient’s activity level.
Portion size and health literacy: Many people want to get healthy, but they simply don’t know how to do it. At Medi-Weightloss® we teach patients how to understand food labels and basic nutrition. Again, our goal is long-term success, not quick fixes.
Support: Just like our franchisees need support, so do our patients. Unlike many other diets that force you to go through your weight loss journey alone, we provide patients with a full team of coaches, trainers, dietitians, and fellow patients — each constantly rooting for a patient’s success.
The goal isn’t just to see the number on the scale go down, it’s to help people live happier, healthier lives.
The Effects of Physical Health on Mental Health
When the topic of weight loss comes up, most people think of the obvious benefits, like improved heart health, having more energy, and a stronger immune system. What is often forgotten is the effects weight loss has on mental health. While it’s expected that many of our patients saw the number on the scale go down, many of them also reported lower levels of depression and anxiety. When your body is healthy, your brain is healthy!
Our “Get Moving!” Program
At Medi-Weightloss® we focus most of our efforts on helping overweight adults lose weight and get healthy. But what if we could make it so that adults never suffer from obesity in the first place? That was the thought behind our latest “Get Moving” initiative, a program designed to encourage teens and young adults to choose healthy food options and exercise regularly.
Ultimately, the goal is to help teens understand that the food they put into their body, both good and bad, has a major impact on their health. By teaching adolescents the importance of healthy eating and exercise, they’ll make responsible decisions well into adulthood.
