The Joint Corp. (NASDAQ: JYNT), the nation's largest provider of chiropractic care through The Joint Chiropractic® network, today announced Bosco Enterprises, LLC as the regional developer for the states of Wisconsin and western Michigan. Bosco Enterprises, LLC is managed by Jeff and Laura Bosco, who are also multi-unit franchisees with The Joint in Wisconsin, having opened their first clinic in 2014.
"We are excited to continue to power the growth in Wisconsin and add western Michigan through our regional development agreement," said Jeff. "The pandemic put a spotlight on small businesses and because The Joint is an essential business, we were able to remain open and serve our patients. For that reason, The Joint is a strong business opportunity for entrepreneurs and chiropractors."
The Bosco's development agreement includes Milwaukee, Green Bay and Appleton in Wisconsin, as well as Traverse City, Lansing/East Lansing, Battle Creek, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Holland, St. Joseph and Muskegon in Western Michigan. With more than 550 locations across the country, The Joint is leading the way in making chiropractic care more accessible for the millions of people seeking relief from back, neck, and joint pain.
Jeff and Laura will be responsible for guiding new franchisees through the process of launching their businesses, providing on-the-ground support, in addition to a robust training and support program.
"We are continuing to expand across the country, and adding Jeff and Laura as regional developers in the Midwest is indicative of The Joint's strategic development," said Eric Simon, vice president of franchise sales and development at The Joint Corp.
The Joint membership model eliminates the need for insurance while providing franchisees with a recurring revenue stream that helps maximize profitability and potentially quicken the return on investment. The business model works for chiropractors seeking to own a business that avoids insurance billing, and it works equally well for business investors who see the need for more accessible chiropractic care.
