Looking to pivot the way people perceive intravenous therapy and cellular health into more of a lifestyle choice, THE DRIPBaR, a Rhode Island-based franchise serving up vitamins via IV, is targeting Houston for its next wave of expansion.
According to Chief Development Officer Ben Crosbie, THE DRIPBaR is expected to open as many as 10 clinics in the next several years. These locations, he says, will likely be in Chambers, Fort Bend, Harris, Liberty, Montgomery and Waller, among other areas.
“Now more than ever, people are starting to recognize the power of intravenous therapies to maintain their best health and are seeking new ways to complement conventional treatment options. We see the benefits, for the everyday person to people that have been diagnosed with cancer,” notes Crosbie. “We provide a unique combination of vitamins to boost energy levels, improve vitality and to set you on the road to optimal health and well-being.”
Intravenous therapy, which is also known as IV therapy, is the administering of nutrients and hydration directly into the bloodstream for immediate absorption and use by the body. It is the fastest way to deliver nutrients throughout the body, because it bypasses the digestive system and goes directly into the organs, resulting in a 90-100% absorption rate. THE DRIPBaR leverages this benefit and provides IV therapies that are designed to do everything from slowing the signs of aging to reducing brain fog and boosting energy.
At THE DRIPBaR, clients have 18 different IV lifestyle or health-support drips to choose from, including the “flu fighter” that can help the common cold and High C, which is typically for current or former cancer patients. For those who don’t have time for a full vitamin infusion but want the benefit, clients can choose one of seven “quick shots” that Crosbie says gives the body an added boost.
Each session ranges in price from about $100 to $200 and people are sitting in the chair anywhere from 25 to 40 minutes.
“The quality and range of our offerings, and the consistent excellence of our services, will distinguish us as the market grows,” said Crosbie. “COVID-19 has created a new understanding in people that they need to be as healthy as they can be. Healthcare is no longer a passive activity, where people wait for an illness to strike and then react to it. More than ever people want to be in control of their own health, they want to be proactive. They want non-drug therapies to support the best health. They want what THE DRIPBaR has to offer and we are excited to offer our services.”
Including a franchise fee of $55,000, the initial investment to open a1,000-1,500 square foot location is around $116,300-$272,700.
