How To Open a The Joint Franchise

Before making any financial commitment or signing an agreement, it is crucial that you perform your due diligence and establish if this is the right opportunity for you. You may want to speak with existing franchisees and ask questions directed to The Joint team.

After this is done, it may take a couple of months for you to open your new location then you can get started offering spinal adjustments.
