What is LighterLife?
LighterLife is a weight-loss and weight management service which has helped more than 300,000 people to lose excess weight over the last 30 years. Lighterlife products and techniques are backed by 25 years of academic science published in journals worldwide.
Those who are interested in investing in and running their own business have everything to gain as a LighterLife franchisee, and are supported by a tried-and-trusted framework proven by the long-running success of the established franchise.
It’s up to franchisees how they decide to run their business: they can either do it part-time alongside other responsibilities to supplement the family outcome, or may just be passionate about the brand and wish to share their weight-loss journey with others. Lots of franchisees relish the prospect of embarking on a fresh career.
All of the LighterLife plans – from weight loss to weight management – utilise the company’s food-replacement ‘Foodpacks’. They are each full of essential nutrients for good health, including 28 key vitamins and minerals, as well as being high in protein and a good source of fibre. The nutrition team is continually developing them to make sure that LighterLife is offering the best quality, and tastiest, food replacements on the market.
LighterLife estimates that 23.5m people in the UK will be obese or overweight by 2025. LighterLife enables clients to lose weight quickly and safely by helping them to choose the right plan for their weight loss and weight maintenance goals and support them each week throughout their journey.
What kind of franchisee is LighterLife looking for?
