Profile by Sanford gaining momentum nationally

This piece is presented by Sanford Health.

Profile by Sanford, the comprehensive weight-management program developed by physicians and researchers at Sanford Health, is entering a period of rapid growth.

Over the past 60 days, the Sioux Falls-based company has announced franchise agreements in several new markets nationwide, including Grand Forks, N.D.; Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Madison, Wis.; and Phoenix.

In addition, Profile announced plans to open a second corporate location in Evansville, Ind., and add franchise locations in Des Moines, where Profile owns and operates a corporate location.

“Our turnkey franchise model has really taken off, and we’ve been getting a lot of attention,” said Nate Malloy, vice president of Profile by Sanford. “We’ve got momentum on our side, but most of our focus leads back to being able to scale our lifestyle-change coaching model. We think we’re ahead of the market here because we have the personal touch that gets people results.”

Profile by Sanford combines nutrition, activity and lifestyle coaching to encourage healthy weight loss and lasting behavior change. A member’s personal Profile plan includes nutritious Profile food and healthy grocery options. Profile offers a diverse line of food options, including pastas, soups, pizzas, salad dressings and entrees. Each Profile member receives a Profile Smart Body Scale that provides wireless, real-time progress monitoring through web and mobile applications.

“Profile coaches take the guesswork out of healthy lifestyle change,” Malloy said. “We tell our members ‘you’re done with diets’ because we know we can help them lose the weight and keep it off.”

Profile was designed using a large body of clinical research to provide individuals with a simple, effective and sustainable weight-loss solution. An advisory board of Sanford Health physicians and researchers oversees the continued development of Profile. The organization’s Profile Promise says members will lose a minimum of 15 percent of their body weight in 12 months.

Profile named among top new franchises

Profile’s expansion announcements come shortly after Profile by Sanford was named one of Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top New 100 Franchises. Profile opened its first location in 2012. It has expanded to 10 states and will open its 30th location in July. The company has 30 additional stores in development and plans to announce other franchise agreements in the coming weeks.
