IS IT TIME FOR YOU TO START ON YOUR PATH TO PHARMACY OWNERSHIP?

Chances are, you chose your career in pharmacy because you wanted to provide quality care to patients. If that’s the case, you may be feeling frustrated in your current role, and you’re not alone. The two top complaints I hear from retail pharmacists are that they don’t have the freedom or flexibility to manage patient care their way, and that they crave more autonomy than chain pharmacy settings allow.

If you’re ready to make a change, it’s time to explore owning a Medicine Shoppe International, Inc. (MSI) franchise of your own. MSI can support you every step of the way, starting by helping you identify the right path to ownership. You can count on our team to deliver the resources you need to open your doors with confidence—and run a community pharmacy you’ll be proud of for decades to come.

YOUR PHARMACY, YOUR WAY

Choose from two powerful brands: The Medicine Shoppe® Pharmacy or Medicap Pharmacy®, based on the community you’ll serve. Both have strong brand recognition across the country, which you can leverage to jumpstart your pharmacy’s awareness from day one.

Join an elite, high-performing network of independent pharmacies known for putting patients first. Be part of a community of like-minded pharmacy owners who share best practices for everything from how to open and market a new store, to how to boost business performance and patient traffic.

Feel the support of having our entire franchise building team at your side, including expert consultants in marketing, managed care, operations and finance.

Your dedicated Franchise Business Consultant (FBC) will work with you to open your store, grow your profits and help you make the right business decisions, year after year. Plus, you’ll have the breadth of Cardinal Health as a wholesale partner.
