Company Overview

Get A Drip took the wellness industry by storm with its launch in 2017 – offering a range of Intravenous Vitamin Drips and Vitamin Injections. We believe in prevention over a cure and proactivity over reactivity. An award winning company with press coverage in The Guardian, Telegraph, Daily Mail, Sun, GQ and Grazia to name but a few, we’re known for bringing once unaffordable Vitamin Drips, only available to the super wealthy, to the mainstream, via our central London locations.

We are the UK’s number one Vitamin Drip provider, having administered over 30,000 IV Vitamin Drips and Booster Shots from our premium London locations in Westfield White City, Westfield Stratford, Canary Wharf and Boxpark Shoreditch and now have demand from all over the UK. Read what our Founder & CEO, Richard Chambers, has to say about what motivated him to launch Get A Drip:

“The idea for Get A Drip first came to me when I was admitted to intensive care in 2010 with Ketoacidosis, due to complications with my Type 1 Diabetes. It got me thinking how great I felt after having an IV Drip as part of my treatment. Following this, I was continually in and out of hospital for the next 7 years due to issues related to a reduced immune system, where often as part of the treatment I would be hooked up to an IV Drip. After researching the options available to me I realised that Vitamin Drips are really expensive and not accessible to anyone except the super wealthy! I decided to change this. After years researching the benefits of drips and studying the work of Dr. John Myers (the vitamin drip pioneer), Get A Drip finally came to fruition in October 2017.”

Now we’re inviting you to join us as we achieve our goal of making optimum nutrition accessible to everyone.

Franchise Overview

Following the success of our core clinics; our first Get A Drip Franchisees joined us in 2020 and are already seeing the results of their hard work. Our plans for growth are extensive and 2021 will see Get A Drip go International with franchised clinics opening in Dublin and The Netherlands, as well as many franchised clinics in key UK cities.

A Get A Drip Franchise offers the opportunity for you to operate your business in one of three ways:

  • Mobile – This is our entry level franchise for those wanting to offer Vitamin Therapy as a mobile Get A Drip technician, delivering treatments in the comfort of your client’s homes
  • Concession – If you already operate a health/wellness business from your own premises you may consider adding Get A Drip concession to your existing treatments
  • Full Clinic – For those looking to run their own Get A Drip clinic within a shopping centre or on the high street

Training

We believe that all members of the team should undergo the same training, from the franchisee down to the front of house staff. This helps to imbibe our vision for the company and to communicate our values to everyone who is representing the brand. We offer a five day CPD-accredited training program which is run by our head nurse, chief medical officer doctor and franchise manager. You will be fully trained in all aspects of owning, operating and marketing your Get A Drip Franchise. Our Mobile Get A Drip franchisees are invited to undertake training in our London Clinic; while Concession and Full Clinic owners will receive training in their own premises. Training comprises a comprehensive  course covering all aspects of our Booster Shot and Vitamin Drip services, with the opportunity to try practical techniques in a supported environment. You must be a Doctor, Nurse or similarly qualified Medical Professional with the necessary experience/qualifications to deliver the Booster Shots and IV Drips. However, you may wish to invest in a Get A Drip Franchise and employ suitably qualified medical staff to deliver the Booster Shots and IV Drips, in which case your employees will also have to undertake and pass the CPD accredited training course. All employees are required to undertake re-accreditation every twelve months.

Daily Life of a franchisee

Life as a Get A Drip franchisee is fast paced and exciting with no 2 days the same. There are a number of tasks to complete to ensure your business grows at a pace you’re happy with; whether you’re in a clinic welcoming your clients, working on your marketing plan or meeting with other local businesses to discuss collaboration, you can be guaranteed that your work is enjoyable and rewarding.

Get A Drip Battersea

Franchise Type: Mobile franchisee

Location: London

Launched: November 2020

I have a career as a finance manager with a global private equity/real estate group of companies but I have an interest in health and the self-care market and personally believe in continuous health maintenance. When I saw that the Get A Drip franchise was available, I became interested, mainly due to GAD’s affordable pricing, which would make the products available to many.

As an owner without any medical background, I needed to leverage on GAD’s past experience, especially on medical requirements. It was a very steep learning curve, however, I felt supported along the way, where GAD was always able to provide guidance, share their past experience and provide clarity when asked.

It was very daunting launching during the pandemic, especially as I was not expecting the second lockdown – which happened one month after I launched my franchise. That had put my original plan of approaching corporate companies on-hold which indirectly helped me to re-strategise and adapt based on the current market demands. The pandemic has also challenged me to be more creative and innovative in terms of marketing during lockdown. It is very important to stay resilient and keep open communication with GAD.

I am definitely looking forward to growing with the GAD brand and exploring various sales point options, perhaps our own clinic one day.

 

Get A Drip Ireland

Franchise Type: Full Clinic & Development Agreement

Location: Dublin

Launched: June 2021

Irish businesswoman and mum-of-three Jean O'Leary was determined to open Get A Drip in Ireland after discovering the benefits of IV Therapy as a customer on regular visits to London.

"As a mother of three, I know all about the challenges of beating fatigue and needing to recharge the batteries. It really helped transform my energy levels and mood. The treatment is fast acting and effective because it bypasses the gastrointestinal tract, meaning that 100% of vitamins and nutrients are absorbed directly into the body."

After several delays relating to COVID and Lockdown restrictions, Get A Drip was launched in the Castleknock area of Dublin in June 2021. Month on month the clinic has seen an increase in sales as word has spread and customers are realising the benefits of vitamin therapy for themselves. With some clients travelling up to 3 hours for treatment; Jean was quick to react to the demand and just 4 months after opening her initial clinic is now preparing to open another. Ireland - Watch this space!

Hear what Jean has to say here:

“We opened our Dublin Franchise clinic in June 2021 after a few false starts due to covid. Before we opened we were a bit apprehensive as to how it would take off during covid times and everything had only started to reopen again slowly here in Ireland. However we opened our doors on the 8th June 2021 and we have had a fantastic response. As this is all new to Ireland there was a lot of questions as to what it entailed however once clients came in for their consultation with our nurses, word got out and the bookings starting coming in fast.

When we opened in June three of the GAD team came over to support us. They based themselves here for the first week of opening which was a huge help to all the staff to have that back up on site.

Since opening we have gone from strength to strength with new clients and now starting to see a lot of repeat clients. We have most definitely got the name ‘Get A Drip’ out in Ireland now.”

Get A Drip Thurrock

Franchise Type: Mobile franchise

Location: Kent & Essex

Launched: February 2021

“I was born in Romania and I came to England in 2013. I am from a medical background and after graduating from Nursing School I started my professional experience as a volunteer with the Ambulance crew. When I came to the UK my first job was a healthcare assistant in a Nursing Home and I then went on to work as a Senior Staff Nurse at The Harley Street Clinic. I have had an interest in Vitamin Therapy since first reading about its benefits 10 years ago. A colleague of mine introduced me to Get A Drip in 2020 and it really appealed to my entrepreneurial side. I was looking for an opportunity that would allow me to spend more time with my family, while still doing something that I love. Get A Drip was perfect. I love trying new things and also I like the flexibility which GAD offers. The team are nice and always available to help as needed. Also, having all of the necessary systems in place makes life so much easier.

Launching a franchise during lockdown felt like an opportunity as life was not as busy, I had more time to take it slow and learn effectively. I also found that due to lockdown people were more considerate of their health and were more open to the benefits of Vitamin Therapy. My business has grown month on month with a high percentage of repeat clients which is great.

For me, the best thing about owning a Get A Drip franchise is the flexibility that I have. I'm still working in the hospital 2 days per week which keeps my skills up to date, but owning my own franchise gives me more time with my family.  I also receive all the support that I need in running my business, such as help answering medical questions, managing bookings and marketing support. We also have a dedicated Business Development Manager who meets with us 1:1 on a regular basis to help us grow our business.

My aim for the future is to do many pop up events to continue to teach people about the benefits of Drips and Boosters and raise awareness for Vitamin Therapy.  Currently I operate on a mobile basis offering treatment in clients homes, I would eventually like my own static clinic in Kent and Essex.”

Emanuel started as a mobile franchisee using his own transport to get to appointments, but has recently invested in his very own GAD Van, a clinic on wheels; which he intends to use for exhibitions, large scale events and B2B appointments as well as client bookings.
