A Thriveworks franchise is a unique turn-key counseling business opportunity.
As one of the country's fastest growing mental health brands, providing premium care and customer service in practices across 4 states, Thriveworks now offers well-qualified franchisees a therapy practice with:
- A Proven Business Model
- A Unique Philosophy of Premium Care
- Ongoing Mentorship, Training and Operations Support
- A Strong Brand Identity and Internet Presence
- A Protected Territory
Since 2008, Thriveworks practices have been synonymous with exceptional client care and customer service, and we've achieved that by being leaders in the field. Now that we've set the standard for counseling therapy, our next step is to make our brand more accessible than ever before by becoming the first counseling franchise in the U.S.
Our goal is to impart to you all of the expertise, trade secrets and work ethics you need to be able to faithfully reproduce our service in a manner that will garnish for you the same acclaim in your franchise.
We have traced our steps repeatedly, refined our services and analyzed all of the details. The groundwork has been very carefully laid out so that Thriveworks can offer a life changing and positive experience for our clients.
We want every person walking through the doors of a Thriveworks center to immediately know they are stepping into a practice of quality, consistency and convenience.
In 2008, Thriveworks was launched to create a completely new philosophy of care in the counseling and mental health field. From the start, we've strived to deliver excellent growth-focused clinical care and premium customer service to individuals, couples, and families. Today, Thriveworks is expanding from its first location in Cambridge, MA to six total locations in four US states.
As one of the country's fastest growing mental health brands, Thriveworks has redefined the counseling business and offers franchisees a counseling center business with:
- A proven and successful business model
- Operational support including reception, credentialing, and medical billing
- A strong brand message and online presence
- A total investment of only $11,700 to $67,200, including franchise fee.
The outpatient counseling industry is thriving and offers tremendous opportunity:
- Americans spend about $44.5 billion every year on psychotherapy[i]
- There has been a dramatic cultural shift away from inpatient care to outpatient services
- Recent mental health parity laws mean that insurance companies must cover outpatient psychotherapy services[ii]
As consumer demand increases for affordable and convenient counseling, Thriveworks must continue to expand in order to meet this demand. With both single and multi-unit franchise opportunities for development, we are seeking franchisees to open new locations nationwide.
The initial franchise fee for a single-unit Thriveworks franchise is a modest $10,000 for a new mental health counseling practice, or $5,000 to convert an existing mental health counseling practice.
However, as with any practice/business, there are additional expenses for opening a Thriveworks practice. These expenses include:
- Renting quality office space
- Recruiting your clinical team
- Furnishing an office
- Grand opening marketing
- and more.
Franchisees can expect their initial investment for converting a counseling practice to a Thriveworks practice to range between $11,700 - $26,200. Starting a new counseling practice from scratch typically ranges from $26,100 - $67,200. These estimated costs include the franchise fee and all expenses-including operational expenses and marketing for the first 3 months.
In general, the cost of opening a Thriveworks practice is considered on the very low/affordable end for starting a business.
