If you’ve never heard of A Better Weigh Inc., you will soon.
This Chicago-based weight loss center recently announced plans for national franchise expansion.
Founded by Chanay Walton, LPN, after her own struggles with postpartum weight loss and through her work as a nurse, Walton realized the importance of diet, nutrition, and weight management, which led her to open the first A Better Weigh location in the Beverly neighborhood of Chicago in 2009. Since then, she has expanded to one additional corporate site in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago and two franchise locations in Tinley Park, Illinois, and Schererville, Indiana.
Walton is on a mission to bring accessible and unique weight loss and management approaches to minority communities and promote Black franchise ownership in 2022.
“We are changing the way that people look at weight loss and weight management and making it something attainable and realistic, working with every patient to their unique goals and desired lifestyle,” shared Walton.
A Better Weigh’s approach to weight loss and management is informed by a team of physicians, nutritionists, and coaches to provide a true 360-degree comprehensive solution. Most programs include a guided meal plan, proprietary supplements, proprietary injections to stimulate metabolism and increase fat burning processes, and consistent appointments and consultations with the A Better Weigh care team. Unique to A Better Weigh, each location offers FDA-approved medications, supplements, Lipo-Ignite injections and focuses on healthy BMIs when working with patients.
Walton is in an elite group of Black franchisors in the U.S.
“Black businesses and entrepreneurship have had a long history in the U.S., but we just needed an opportunity to thrive and grow. That’s one of my motivations for bringing A Better Weigh to our communities through franchising,” said Walton. “`I want to not only encourage effective and healthy lifestyles and methods among my community but also provide the access and opportunity for more ownership and control over our financial futures. By supporting Black-owned businesses, you’re also extending the opportunity for others to follow their dreams and create generational wealth. I look forward to working with all potential franchisees, and in particular, Black women franchisees.”
A Better Weigh is actively seeking franchisees across the nation for those with a medical background and a passion for helping people feel their best, having strong customer service skills, and meeting financial requirements. Including a franchise fee of $50,000, the estimated initial investment to open A Better Weigh franchise starts at $108,000.
