Get A Drip is an award-winning, innovative health concept. The company provides vitamin infusion therapy through drips and injections, as well as other wellness services, to help its customers achieve optimum nutrition and optimal health. The company is a totally unique concept and franchise opportunity, being the only high street Vitamin Drip clinic in the U.K.
Founder Richard Chambers started the company to make vitamin drips accessible to all, not just celebrities and the super-rich. Since launching in 2017, Get A Drip has administered over 20,000 vitamin drips and booster shots from its clinics in central London to a wide range of customers.
The franchise model is so sought after that the company has gone from just one clinic in 2017 to three clinics in London, a state-of-the-art mobile clinic, and franchising around the U.K and Ireland in just three short years. After receiving unprecedented global interest in the company, Get A Drip is now franchising internationally, representing a lucrative business opportunity.

Why now is the time to invest in a Get A Drip franchise
The franchise is a great investment because it’s a unique opportunity in a fast-growing and strong industry. Franchisees will be at the forefront of the health and wellness industry in their country and will benefit from a first-mover advantage.

The health industry is the best industry to operate in at the moment. The general public is now very interested in health and wellness, and looking for the best ways to boost their immune systems and stay as healthy as possible. The effects of the pandemic will last for years and people will now consider their health as an integral part of their daily routines. Maintaining a healthy intake of essential nutrients is possible with Get A Drip, and is likely to attract many customers in any region.
Health and wellness are always in demand, and especially now with everyone trying to boost their immune system, people are looking for new ways to stay healthy. Get A Drip has demand from people from all walks of life: customers vary from exercise junkies who use drips to aid their performance and recovery, to new mums who are tired and need a boost, to city-workers who work hard and play hard, to chronic illness sufferers who rely on the nutrients in drips.
There are many benefits to vitamin drip therapy. Aside from the hydrating effects of the fluids, drips contain much larger amounts of nutrients that can be found in oral supplements which means that they don’t need to be taken every day, and the higher amounts have more health-giving benefits. The vitamins in drips and booster shots also have 100 per cent bioavailability which means that they are instantly absorbed for the body to use how it needs.
When compared to the bioavailability of oral supplements, which can be as low as 10 per cent, it makes drips the obvious choice to ensure that the body is taking in the maximum amount of nutrients.
