Frequently Asked Questions

Why join FYZICAL?

‘When it’s all said and done, you are far more lucrative in private practice than working for someone else. Can you do this on your own? Absolutely. FYZICAL has saved us at least 10 years of learning.  We lead very busy lives, and we would not have been able to achieve everything that we needed to open the business without FYZICAL.”
Jayne Thomas
Owner, Sugar Land Texas

Physical therapists are excellent doctors, however, your degree doesn’t usually come with an entrepreneurial business management education. Our proven systems, processes, and knowledge take the guesswork out of running a physical therapy practice and allow you to avoid costly mistakes that others have made. FYZICAL was created by physical therapists, for physical therapists and because we are a nationally recognized brand, adopting the brand for your private practice means that you will be able to compete against large hospital systems and corporate consolidators – all while remaining an independent owner, truly the best of both worlds.

How do I start a clinic with FYZICAL?

FYZICAL makes starting your own physical therapy clinic as easy as possible. We’ve been the #1 Physical Therapy Franchise since 2013 and have developed a simple seven step system to get you up and running within six months!  After meeting with your FYZICAL advisor to decide that this is the right opportunity, you will sign your franchise agreement and your Franchise Disclosure Document then you’ll be introduced to the Operations team who will work with you and guide you through the following process:

Step 1: Work with the Real Estate and Development team on Site Selection, and Execute Your Lease
Step 2: Business Planning and Goal Setting
Step 3: Build Out, Store Design, Credentialing, and Website Development
Step 4: Outfit Your Practice with Equipment & Supplies

How do I choose a location for my new clinic?

Before you sign your agreement, you will work with our development team to secure a territory that is exclusively yours. Once you’ve selected the area you plan to develop, our real-estate and development team will provide location selection support and guidance and help with lease review and negotiation.

What goes into the cost of starting a clinic?

Your total investment will be between $191,750 - $479,000. What’s great about a franchise model is that your costs are predictable, and our estimate is all inclusive – it includes everything from your initial franchise fee to clinic build out and improvements, furniture, fixtures, equipment and more.

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 independent. 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.
