Weight Loss Clinic

Startup Costs: $50,000 – $100,000
Online Operation? No

Business Overview

Starting your own weight loss clinic may bejust the type of new business venture that you’ve been looking for. Arecent U.S. government survey indicated that 50 percent of Americanadults felt their weight was too high and that 80 percent of therespondents intended to start a diet or fitness program within the nextsix months to correct their weight problem.

This survey fact alone isreason enough to start a weight loss clinic. There are two optionsavailable to you in terms of business location for a weight lossclinic. The first option for establishing the business would be aretail location where customers come to you, and the second optionwould be private, in-home consultation where you go to the customer.

The first option would require more startup capital. However, theprobability of generating larger revenues and profits is greater in thelong run for a weight loss clinic operating from a fixed location,especially once the business is established. The second and lesscapital-intensive option is a great way to provide your customers witha personalized service and could easily generate an income in the rangeof $40 to $50 per hour. The largest requirement for starting a weightloss clinic is to be a certified dietitian, or at least have one onstaff.
