The company continues to modernize with a digital-first approach that meets customers where and when they shop in today’s evolving retail landscape.
The Vitamin Shoppe’s unique franchise model rewards franchise partners for driving VitaminShoppe.com and VShoppe app sales, via a commission structure that creates a seamless omnichannel experience for both franchisees and their customers. The customer experience at franchise stores is identical to that in the 680+ retail locations of The Vitamin Shoppe.
The average time to become a franchisee at The Vitamin Shoppe is six to eight weeks. The first franchised Vitamin Shoppe stores will open later in the year. Franchise markets are available in all U.S. states, with the exceptions of Washington and Oregon, where The Vitamin Shoppe operates stores under the Super Supplements banner.
