Profile by Sanford expanding to Colorado Springs
Fast-growing franchise model to open first store in Colorado
Profile by Sanford, the comprehensive weight-management program developed by physicians and researchers at Sanford Health, is expanding to Colorado Springs, CO. The franchise agreement is in place, and the location and opening date will be announced in the coming weeks.
“We’re excited to have a like-minded franchisee who will carry Profile’s vision to Colorado,” said Nate Malloy, Vice-President of Profile by Sanford. “Colorado Springs is a great community to introduce the state to everything Profile has to offer.”
Profile’s most recent franchise location opened its doors in Rapid City, SD, on April 10, 2017. Rapid City and Colorado Springs are further West than markets in which Profile owns and operates its own retail weight management locations.
“Our turnkey franchise model is really gaining momentum,” Malloy said. “We’re getting a lot of interest to the West, and Colorado Springs is evidence of that.”
Profile by Sanford combines nutrition, activity and lifestyle coaching to encourage healthy weight loss and lasting behavior change. A member’s personal Profile plan includes nutritious Profile food and healthy grocery options. Profile offers a diverse line of food options, including pastas, soups, pizzas, salad dressings and entrees. Each Profile member receives a Profile Smart Body Scale that provides wireless, real-time progress monitoring through web and mobile applications.
“Profile coaches take the guesswork out of healthy lifestyle change,” Malloy said. “We tell our members ‘You’re Done With Diets’ because we know we can help them lose the weight and keep it off.”
Profile was designed using a large body of clinical research to provide individuals with a simple, effective and sustainable weight loss solution. An advisory board comprised of Sanford Health physicians and researchers oversee the continued development of Profile. The organization’s Profile Promise says members will lose a minimum of 15 percent of their body weight in 12 months.
Expansion to Colorado comes shortly after Profile by Sanford was named one of Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top New 100 Franchises. Profile opened its first location in 2012, and has since expanded to 10 states and will open its 30th location in July. The company has 30 additional stores in development.
