Foot Solutions

About Us

Foot Solutions is the world’s largest specialty wellness franchise focused exclusively on improving foot health and relieving pain in the feet, knees, hips, back and neck. We offer rigorous education and training for store owners and staff, and provide a holistic foot analysis along with exclusive Perfetto ™ inserts and orthotics and stylish, high-quality comfort footwear for work, dress and play for a growing market that is primarily over 40.

Since it was founded in 2000, Foot Solutions has grown to an international franchise with more than 100 stores in the United States and abroad. Foot Solutions was recently included in Entrepreneur media’s Franchise 500 listing, named a “Best Bet for Vets” franchise by Military Times, one of Atlanta’s Top 25 franchises, and a Top Ten Health & Nutrition Franchise in Canada by Canadian Business Franchise Directory.

Our Industry

The $10 billion dollar-plus industry is growing every year. Getting into an aggressively-growing industry that shows no signs of going in a different direction should have a positive impact on your business and profitability. Today’s Baby Boomers are committed to staying active and doing anything that will help them to look and feel younger. While we work with people of all ages and lifestyles, our primary client base is women 40 to 65 years old. The specialty wellness footwear industry is on the upswing. With 3 in 10 adults suffering from foot pain, and half of those saying that the pain limits their ability to walk and exercise, Foot Solutions’ signature blend of services and products provides a unique bridge between medical and fashion footwear. A recent industry report states that the custom insoles are revolutionizing the footwear industry, with the demand increasing dramatically in recent years due to rising rates of diabetes, arthritis and obesity. The report projects that the foot orthotic insoles market will reach $3.5 billion in both the United States and globally by 2020.

This is one of the few businesses that allow the operators the satisfaction of truly helping people—hence our tagline, “We Make You Feel Good.” We have our own lab in the USA where we make our own custom orthotics and specialty line of products, and we search the world for exclusive specialty shoes to offer our customers. In the store, we do not focus on selling. Our emphasis is on Foot Solutions’ free holistic foot scan, analysis and assessment, the unique in-store experience, and our professional recommendations for the best solutions which create strong customer satisfaction and referral business.
