Steady growth of the Caci Clinic franchise
Celebrity diets, media attention to the growing problem of obesity and TV programs like the ‘Biggest Loser’ have brought body image into the lime over the past few years. Low fat foods and fad diets have become the norm, whilst society as a whole is getting larger.
But despite all of this health hype, Director of the health and weight loss franchise, the Caci Clinic franchise ’s Alec Farr, believes the business’s steady growth is due to its proven dedication to lasting weight loss solutions.
For 25 years, the Caci-Clinic has been assisting people, particularly women, in weight management. The Clinic’s ‘Healthy Living Programme’ approaches health and wellbeing in a holistic way, educating its clients in sound eating habits, which, tailored to meet an individual’s needs, are certified by a nutritionist Diets are supplemented by natural vitamins and herbs, to help clients achieve results the natural way.
The Caci-Clinic Franchise has pinpointed 30 territories within New Zealand for company growth and opportunities exist for potential Caci-Clinic franchise owners to join the team. Master Franchise opportunities also exist for motivated individuals who will help set up and manage individual clinics.
Working with the Caci-Clinic is a highly rewarding experience, as Clinic owners share in the joy that new found wellness brings. With 96 percent of Caci-Clinic clients being women, women in particular are suited to the Caci-Clinic consultant role.
Farr says that as health franchise owners spend the majority of their time talking with clients, excellent communication skills and the ability to empathise with others is crucial. A passion for health and natural therapy is also a must, while a shrewd business sense and the ability to see new business opportunities is very helpful.
But while all these attributes make for a solid foundation for a Caci-Clinic franchise business’ success, new health clinic owners undergo full training both prior to and during the first 18 months of the business’ launch.
One working week is spent at the Caci-Clinic Head Office with the franchise business’ naturopath, to ensure the franchisee understands the various programmes and products offered by the franchise. Another week is then spent learning the ins and outs of clinic consultation and the Caci franchise’s business system.
This training culminates in the presentation of The Natural Way Diploma in Natural Herbal Therapies to Caci-Clinic owners. Ongoing training occurs bi-annually at Caci-Clinic conferences, and support is readily available from the Head Office via telephone and in person by way of regular in-clinic visits.
The Caci-Clinic is a ‘turn-key’ franchise licence, costing $35, 000. This license gives franchisees an exclusive territory within which to operate their franchise business and the Natural Way Diploma in Natural Herbal Therapies. Franchisees are then required to have $30, 000 in capital to enable the construction of the clinic and all décor and stock.03.08.2006
