First ‘The Joint’ clinic opens in Wasilla, Alaska
The Joint Corp., the nation’s largest provider of chiropractic care through The Joint Chiropractic® network, has signed a multi-unit franchise agreement in the state of Alaska for three clinics. The first of the three recently opened in Wasilla, Alaska, with a second clinic planned for Anchorage in the first quarter of next year. The franchisees are targeting fall 2023 for the third location. Alaska extends The Joint’s footprint to 40 states.
Ron and Julie Kluff, James Petersen, DC, Toni Petersen and Jerusha Overton are the franchisees growing the brand in Alaska. The Kluffs also own three The Joint locations in Utah, and the Petersons are previous franchisees who have rejoined the brand to develop Alaska. Overton will operate the businesses on behalf of the group.
“Alaska is an incredible place to live and work and has a great need for affordable and convenient chiropractic care. We are excited to fill that need with our new clinic opening in Wasilla – the first of its kind in Alaska,” Petersen said.
The Joint Chiropractic is known for its convenient retail setting and concierge-style services including no-appointments, no-insurance hassles, affordable chiropractic care and accommodating hours of operations, including evenings and weekends.
“The opportunity to expand into another new territory is a significant milestone for a brand. The Joint’s presence in Alaska marks an exciting new phase of growth for our company,” said Peter D. Holt, president and CEO of The Joint Corp.
