Franchising Get A Drip – Case Study
Ashtons Franchise Consulting assisted in franchising Get A Drip in 2020, after the founder, Richard Chambers saw an opportunity for exponential growth. This is their background story into franchising the business….
Who are Get A Drip?
Founded in 2017, Get A Drip, offers the widest range of Vitamin Booster Shots and IV Drips in the UK – the Booster Shot and Intravenous Vitamin Drip Therapy is fast acting as it bypasses the gastrointestinal system allowing 100% of the vitamins and nutrients to be absorbed directly into the body. Medical professionals, including GMC registered doctors, NMC registered nurses, pharmacists and paramedics can administer the shots and drips from either a stand-alone clinic, as a bolt on to another clinic or as a mobile, ‘we come to you’, service.
The origins of the business derive from personal factors in that Richard felt the benefits of Vitamin Drips in hospital while being treated for complications arising from his Diabetes. After seven years of researching the benefits of drips, Get A Drip Clinics were opened in London’s Shoreditch Box Park and later in Westfield Shepherds Bush.
Choosing franchising as a route to expansion
Get A Drip first met with Ashtons in 2018, but were advised that it was a little too early to franchise. So they went away, worked on proof of concept, and a year or so later were ready to get cracking! Consultant Richard Langrick worked with them from the outset; from the feasibility and planning stage, to the full franchise development, recruitment and launch.
What is next for Get A Drip?
It is currently November 2021 and Get A Drip has already opened 4 franchise locations. Demand in the UK is strong and Richard’s plan for the near future is to open lots more stores. He says, “Our aim is to improve everyone’s health and wellness, with what we see is the future of doing things and make it as accessible to as many people as possible. I want the business to do really well and expand globally– a pure focus on growth”.
