Franchise Spotlight: Health
Industry trends show an increase in Health franchises for those invested in helping others.
The Health industry is a varied and well-franchised sector. Whether you are looking to specialize in care, beauty, health equipment or wellbeing, there is a niche market to be explored. In 2020, the healthcare industry in the United States had an estimated revenue of $2612 billion (Statista) and the number of people employed in healthcare looks set to grow even more - making health an industry worth investing in.
With an aging population (expected to grow to almost 90 million adults aged 65 and over by 2050), it is not surprising that health care franchises such as Assisting Hands Home Care, which provide senior home care services, are growing in popularity.
If your interests lie more in beauty or health and wellbeing, franchises like Massage Envy are taking advantage of the self-care trends. They set franchisees up with their own business providing massage, facials and wellbeing treatments.
For franchisees with a passion for sales, General Nutrition Centers which sell vitamins, supplements, herbs, minerals and energy products, provide licenses to operate a retail store in a fixed location.

With statistics showing an aging population which is only set to increase, as well as a generation of adults who are focusing on mental health, wellbeing and self-care, the health industry is set to boom - making franchising in this industry an exciting prospect.
Under the umbrella of ‘Health’ comes a varied range of opportunities and franchisees would do well to consider their reasons for entering this market.

Employees working in healthcare must be sufficiently educated, with many sectors requiring training and certificates to comply with local or state laws. It is vital to ensure the franchise you select comes with appropriate training and support before you begin. For franchisees who are passionate and dedicated, the health industry is a great choice with a wealth of franchise possibilities.
