A physical therapy franchise or chiropractic franchise might require a specialist. A Brain Balance franchise? Not at all. Here’s what we’re looking for.
Even though we’re not a physical therapy franchise, we attract a lot of physical therapists and chiropractors, whose experience dovetails well with our business model. But specific career backgrounds don’t matter nearly as much as common business skills and a passion for helping kids. Franchisees with general business acumen, entrepreneurship, sales and marketing experience, and familiarity with P&Ls tend to be a good fit. One thing our franchisees have in common is that they were drawn to the opportunity to help kids through our program.
Our top performers also share these common characteristics:
- Genuinely enjoy working with children
- Good listeners and communicators
- Like to work independently in a structured environment
- Think and act like a small-business owner
- Are ambitious and dedicated to growing their business
- Possess integrity, honesty and good common sense
Financially, qualified candidates must have a minimum net worth of $400,000 and liquid assets of at least $100,000.
How top performers stand out
The key to success with a Brain Balance franchise is the ability to go out and become part of your community. You don’t need specialized training or a background in education or developmental delays. What you need in order to thrive is a commitment to community outreach and education and pride in both your business and the difference you can make in other peoples’ lives.
Our holistic, whole-child approach is based on decades of research. We just need passionate entrepreneurs who can follow our program and our franchise systems. Many franchisees are parents whose own children found success through Brain Balance, and were inspired to become owners to help other families achieve the same thing.
Support for your success
Franchisees can also rely on corporate support from Brain Balance throughout the ramp-up of their business, from site development and initial training through soft opening, grand opening and beyond. They also receive operational support on a regular basis for the duration of their franchise agreement.
Some of the training and support structures we have in place include:
- 12-week initial training plan (5 weeks pre-training, 2 weeks on-site training, 5 weeks post training)
- Annual training convention
- Regional training
- Monthly program training webinars
- Monthly nutrition training webinars
- Brain Balance University training modules
- Operations, programs and marketing support
- Service Cloud support from subject matter experts
- Workplace online Franchisee/Center staff forum for discussion
The key, as a business owner, is making sure potential customers know about solutions the Brain Balance program offers. We do this by helping new franchise owners craft an integrated marketing plan, which includes a combination of community involvement and grassroots advertising as well as paid media on broadcast, social media and digital platforms.
Our target customer does a lot of research, so we try to meet the consumers where they are.
Whether you’re a physical therapist or chiropractor who’s been seeking a franchise that’s a good fit, or an experienced executive who’s ready to run their own business, if you’re compelled by the opportunity to help transform children’s lives, Brain Balance could be the right business opportunity for you.
Brain Balance franchises are unique, sustainable and high-demand. We use an integrated, drug-free approach to help children live their best lives. You can explore our website or fill out a form for more information.
