The Rapid Growth of Physical Therapy Now
Physical Therapy Now is a physical therapy franchise business with its headquarters based in Miami, Florida. The company opened its first location with immediate success, due primarily to the consumer demand for convenient, high-quality physical therapy care in the Miami area. Because the need for physical therapy often corresponds with the desire for an easy-to-find physical therapy facility, Physical Therapy Now CEO Andy Zapata decided to fulfill that need for his patients.
“When someone needs physical therapy, there are, in most cases, physical limitations,” he explains. “My thought is that if I can make it easier for them to get the great physical therapy care they need and provide an unparalleled physical therapy experience along with a perfectly convenient location, we’ll all benefit across the board.”
Zapata’s thinking couldn’t have been more on point.
To date, Physical Therapy Now has catapulted to 20+ locations in less than 2 years, some of which are nearby, in places like Kendall, Brickell, Miami Lakes, Pembroke Pines, and Coral Springs and then much further away, like in Texas and New Jersey.
Since 2016, Zapata has not only grown this business quite rapidly, but he also decided to franchise it. Why?
“Because it doesn’t matter where you live or how much money you make or what happened to cause your injury or ailment. There is always a need for top notch physical therapy.”
The therapists at Physical Therapy Now specialize in rehab for every type of injury that focuses on the knees, back, ankles, elbows, hands, wrists, and other areas as well, such as strokes and neuro-muscular disorders.
The therapists pride themselves on striking the perfect balance between proven traditional therapies and the newest technologies, to provide a wide range of physical therapy options for their patients. Old school weight-based guided exercises are a popular option, as well as the newer techniques, like cyber rehab.
Plus, providing convenience is equally as important. Aquatic therapy and in-home therapy add to the options when it comes to making physical therapy sessions highly customized and convenient.
Beyond that, Zapata explains his other rationale.
“There are so many people out there who want to open a business but don’t know where to start. They have some money to get the ball rolling but not enough. Or… for whatever reason, they just can’t seem to pull the trigger on opening their own business , and I get it… it can be overwhelming, so we have a dedicated franchise team to help make it easier.
Zapata created a business blueprint and his franchising team specializes on getting the businesses up and running, from the beginning stages of finding the perfect profit producing location and staffing, to helping with accounting and management systems.
“The way I look at it is this,” Zapata says. “This business genuinely helps everyone who comes on board, from the patient who is seeing physical mobility progress, to the staff who has ample growth opportunities and on to the business owner who can achieve their hopes and dreams of becoming a true entrepreneur. I always knew I wanted to create something that would help people around the world, and Physical Therapy Now has done just that.”
