Dr. G's Weight Loss and Wellness Completes South Florida Sell-Out, Continues Expanding to Central Florida, Georgia and Texas

Nation's Fastest Growing Weight Loss and Wellness Franchise Will Have 30 Clinics in Southern Florida

DAVIE, FL--(Marketwire - Jul 6, 2011) - Dr. G's Weight Loss and Wellness today announced the sell-out of its South Florida territory in less than one year. Now, the Davie-based company is setting its sights on four new markets: Central Florida, Atlanta, Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston, Texas.

"We recently completed our regional sales program with 30 Dr. G's Weight Loss and Wellness clinics in Southern Florida," said Charlotte Russell, Chief Development Officer, Dr. G's Franchising Companies. "Approximately 20 clinics will be fully operational by year-end."

Russell said the company's business success reflects the growing national concern with obesity as a chronic health problem, raising the risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension and stroke, and certain forms of cancer.

"Today, nearly two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese, pointing to the increased need for effective programs like Dr. G's Weight Loss & Wellness clinics," said Russell.

Unlike most weight loss programs where one size fits all, Dr. G's offers a medically supervised program tailored to fit each client's individual needs, taking into account their blood work, EKG, metabolic rate, body composition, and behavioral history. This approach has helped over 70,000 patients lose 1 million pounds, according to Russell.

Since launching its program in August 2010, Dr. G's Franchising Companies has sold 11 clinic franchises in Miami-Dade, nine in Broward, eight in Palm Beach County, and two in Naples/Fort Myers. Seven clinics are open in the U.S., including one in New Jersey, as well as international clinics in El Salvador, Guatemala and Brazil.

Russell said Dr. G's Franchising Companies is aiming to sell five units in the Orlando/Tampa Bay market next year, along with three units in Georgia and five in Texas. Further expansion is planned for Maryland, North Carolina and Nebraska.

Dr. G's Franchising Companies, LLC has developed a business model that is replicable worldwide. Its streamlined franchise program provides turnkey support for owners from site acquisition, construction and design, the grand opening, and business oversight and operations.
