We are meeting with Chris Tomshack, CEO of HealthSource – America’s Chiropractor. Since franchising HealthSource – America’s Chiropractor in 2006, Chris has grown the business to become the nation’s most trusted provider of pain relief and chiropractic care with more than 360 clinics serving more than six million patients.
When Chris Tomshack was 14-years-old, his career compatibility test resulted in contradictory choices: a doctor and businessman. Now, more than 20 years later, this premonition has become a reality. Dr. Tomshack embarked on his own practice directly out of chiropractic school and quickly saw success. Unlike many other doctors, he had a particular knack for the finance, marketing and operations spectrum of clinic ownership. Employing 37 chiropractors in order to welcome new patients, Dr. Tomshack grew his one chiropractic clinic to four, each of which was five times the size of a typical chiropractic office and seeing more than 1,000 new patients each month.
Recognizing the potential for growth, he was inspired to replicate the model by franchising the clinics and began solidifying effective systems so that doctors could focus 100 percent on quality patient care.
In Part Two, we play a clip from our popular Great Quotes in Franchising podcast.
