Owning a Foot Solutions


Explore our franchise opportunities

Work for yourself, but not by yourself

Since our founding in 2000, Foot Solutions has supported entrepreneurs who want to invest in a proven brand and control their own destiny. Economically, the Foot Solutions business model offers franchisees a well-balanced lifestyle, a reliable return on investment, and exceptional profitability. But--beyond the economic benefits--our franchisees have the opportunity to serve their neighbors by keeping them healthy and comfortably on their feet.

We are committed to supporting and building our exceptional and trusted brand.


In February 2020, a group of investors purchased the franchisor corporate support company from the original founder and installed new management committed to investing energy, capital, and professionalism into developing the franchise network and boosting support for the franchisees.

With a commitment to adding value to franchisees, the new ownership group is focused on the continued development of an exceptional brand. With our expert, caring service, custom product line, and medical focus (many of our stores bill Medicare and private insurance through our in-house medical billing team), we are well-positioned in the health and wellness market. Further, our specialty retail niche is insulated against Internet sales pressure as well as competitors offering inferior services.

The Ideal Franchise Candidate

Foot Solutions provides franchisees with intensive initial and ongoing training as well as operational and marketing support. However, operating a Foot Solutions is more complex than many other franchised businesses. While our complexity differentiates us in the market, it also necessitates we only sell franchises to individuals and operating groups that can maintain the quality and competency our brand requires. In short, we will only grant a franchise territory to persons we are convinced—after deliberate analysis and intensive consideration—will be successful in the system.

Successful franchisees will possess and/or employ persons with the following traits:

  • An ongoing desire to learn new skills

  • An ability to build and maintain a referral network in the medical community

  • An ability to understand and distill complex medical topics into simple language

  • An understanding of retail operations and inventory management

  • A motivation to serve and help people

  • An ability to sell with confidence

Why Foot Solutions

A potential franchisee has many options from which to choose. An investment in Foot Solutions means an investment in the following:

Ideal economic characteristics

Foot Solutions locations are generally run by two to four staff members and are typically housed in 800-1300 square feet. Low fixed costs and minimum overhead requirements combined with high-margin products reduce risk and increase upside potential.

Attractive market dynamics

Our position as the one-stop-shop for foot wellness means we serve the health-conscious consumer as well as the growing population of those suffering from chronic diseases such as diabetes and osteoarthritis. Our target market therefore spans both health and wellness enthusiasts as well as individuals suffering from foot, ankle, knee, and back pain.

Unique offering

Our privately labeled, custom orthotics and high-end premium inserts can only be purchased through Foot Solutions franchised locations, and our expert, caring service cannot be replicated by the Internet.

Insulation from retail pressure

Foot Solutions’ staff have a recognized expertise in foot wellness, giving them the ability to sell a niche medical crossover product that can be imitated but not replicated by the Internet.

Strong brand

With 20+ years of brand development and locations throughout the globe, the Foot Solutions brand is well-known.

Exceptional support

Our corporate support is remarkable in the franchising industry. We are committed to the success of our franchisees through best-in-class operational, training, and marketing support.

Clear differentiation from competition

Foot Solutions is known for its caring, thorough attention to its customers and expert service. No other company is in a better position to serve the growing market for foot wellness products and services. (A brief comparison of our competition is below)

Commitment of ownership

The franchisor was purchased in February 2020 by a group of private investors committed to prudent growth strategies, marketing excellence, and a culture of service to the franchisees.

Proprietary products

The ownership group is committed to differentiating the Foot Solutions brand through acquisition of exclusive licenses and product lines only sold through the Foot Solutions network. Read all about our first acquisition here.
