The Joint Chiropractic Ranked on Prestigious Business & Franchise Lists
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (Jan. 27, 2021) – The Joint Corp. (NASDAQ: JYNT), the nation’s largest provider of chiropractic care through The Joint Chiropractic® network, continues to receive accolades and recognition of its growing retail healthcare business model. Several of the most established and distinguished national ranking lists recognized The Joint for its proliferation of new clinics, staying power and resiliency during the pandemic.
“Our continued growth, as well as the ability to serve patients and deliver quality care during a pandemic, demonstrates the strength of our business model and is reflective of our ranking on these much-admired industry lists,” said Peter D. Holt, president and CEO of The Joint Corp. “The Joint Corp. is honored to be acknowledged by Forbes, Franchise Times and Entrepreneur as we drive to reach 1,000 units by 2023 and provide communities across the nation with accessible, quality chiropractic care.”
The Joint was named, or advanced its ranking, on the following lists:
- Forbes 2021 America's Best Small Companies, list, where The Joint was named number 13 out of 100 companies. Forbes’ list of America’s Best Small-Cap Companies was compiled using data from FactSet. It screened for companies with a market value between $300 million and $2 billion, positive sales growth over the past 12 months and a share price of at least $5. Financial institutions, REITs, utilities, and limited partnerships were excluded, as were companies public for less than one year. The rankings are based on earnings growth and sales growth for the latest 12 months and over 5 years, one-year and 5-year return on equity and 52-week total return. More weight was given to the latest-12 months data in the ranking.
- Franchise Times Fast & Serious List 2021, ranking the smartest-growing brands, with The Joint Chiropractic moving up 17 spots compared to last year to #17. Franchise Times created a formula to identify fast-growing franchise systems that also have staying power, as an antidote to multiple other rankings that include too many one-year wonders. Controller Matt Haskin developed a proprietary 10-point formula, including percentage sales growth, percentage unit growth, dollar sales growth and numerical unit growth over the past three years. The database for the project is the Franchise Times Top 200+ annual ranking published in October of the largest franchise systems by revenue. Haskin identified the companies that submitted information for all three years for that project, then selected for analysis those with systemwide sales above $40 million.
- Entrepreneur’s 2021 Franchise 500® ranking, with The Joint moving up 20 spots compared to last year to #58. The key factors in Entrepreneur’s evaluation include costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. All franchises are given a cumulative score based on more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500® in ranking order.
The Joint Chiropractic is the nation’s largest network of non-insurance, private pay chiropractic healthcare clinics in the United States. Millions of Americans have found relief from pain due to the benefits of chiropractic's natural, drug-free approach to healthcare.
