Should I franchise or do it on my own?

Franchising with FYZICAL doesn’t mean you give up your independent owner status, or your decision-making freedoms, or your creative license. In fact, we empower our owners to make their practice uniquely theirs. Why? Because we know that what makes a PT stand out to patients is the uniqueness each owner brings to their community. Our franchise model isn’t like any other franchise out there, and that’s by design! 

At FYZICAL, you are the independent owner that you want to be – making your own decisions, designing your clinic, choosing your location, deciding what services your clinic will provide. One of the primary benefits of partnering with a franchise like FYZICAL is that you have access to an entire team to help you, so you don’t have to do it alone.

How much space is needed and how do I design it?

When it comes to clinic design, our team can’t be beat! Our internal design and marketing team will work with you and a team of design experts to create a beautiful, bright, welcoming, professional physical therapy space that fits within the FYZICAL brand guidelines. 

Our team recommends that your clinic be between 2000-3000 square feet. A 2000 sq. foot space gives you enough room to grow without feeling cramped and crowded. Many of our PTs who have started with smaller clinics find they outgrow their space too quickly. A 2000 sq ft clinic allows you to accommodate approximately 6 clinicians. Our development team likes to advise that every 500 sq ft will account for approximately two clinicians.

How much revenue goes to FYZICAL?

As part of the FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers family, you will pay a royalty equal to 6% of your center’s gross revenue.
