To compete effectively, most independent pharmacy owners know they need to continually find new patients and new revenue opportunities. If growth is your goal, now may be the time to consider how becoming a pharmacy franchise can support your path to multi-store ownership.

“Being a part of the Medicap Pharmacy® family has helped me drive awareness in multiple communities,” said Devin Trone, PharmD, who owns three Medicap Pharmacy® locations in Idaho. “I also benefit from the support of a dedicated Franchise Business Consultant (FBC), who serves as a sounding board to help me run and grow my business—along with a broader team that helps with everything from staying on top of compliance requirements to marketing.”



THE FLEXIBILITY TO BRAND YOUR PHARMACY YOUR WAY
Medicine Shoppe International, Inc. offers the flexibility and freedom to brand your store your way. Choose from two strong brands—The Medicine Shoppe® or Medicap Pharmacy®—based on the community you’ll serve. Both offer national brand recognition that you can leverage to jumpstart your pharmacy’s awareness from day one. Or maintain your present store name, by co-branding with the tagline “a member of the Medicine Shoppe® family” or “a member of the Medicap Pharmacy® family.”

GET A REAL RETURN FOR YOUR INVESTMENT
“When it comes to measuring my return, I can say that my monthly franchise fee more than pays for itself,” says Trone. “I get tremendous value out of that investment, and I get far more back, in terms of services and expert support. I also really enjoy the camaraderie of being connected with like-minded pharmacy owners, and the ability to improve the way I run my business by benchmarking my pharmacies’ performance to that of similar stores.”
