Lab Testing Franchise: Take Control of Your Life

Any Lab Test Now Cleveland Ohio Franchisee

Janice Blasinsky is not one to sit around and wait for things to happen. Not in health. Not in business. Not in life. If you caught a glimpse of the 59-year-old Title Boxing at 5:30 a.m. with her daughter/ business partner, you would start to get an idea of her zeal for taking action and making things happen.

Sitting in a doctor’s office in Cleveland, Ohio, back in 2008, Blasinsky recalls asking her doctor for a simple A1c sugar test. She has a family history of diabetes and while she wasn’t experiencing symptoms she wanted to check it out. Her doctor refused to order the lab test, stating her insurance wouldn’t pay for it. For her, that was a problem.

“I was so annoyed. I really didn’t like the fact I couldn’t make my own decisions about monitoring my health,” recalled Blasinsky.

As it happens, she was looking for new business opportunities around that time to add to her existing business – a medical evaluation and claims company. She remembers thumbing through a business magazine and saw a write up on Any Lab Test Now – a company that provides direct access clinical lab testing to consumers without a doctor’s order or insurance hassles; a company that allows people to take control of their own health.

“When I saw this franchise, I knew it was for me. The more I learned, the more I knew this would be a great fit for me and my daughter. With the way health care was moving, we loved the idea that anybody could walk in at any time and get a lab test of THEIR choice,” said Blasinsky.

Any Lab Test Now’s ranking by Inc 5000 as one of the nation’s fastest growing franchises, coupled with its low overhead, small retail footprint, and affordable initial investment sealed the deal. By 2009, Blasinsky and her daughter Angela Yaniga had signed on the dotted line to become an Any Lab Test Now franchisee. Yaniga began working for her mother when she was just 15 years old, transcribing and dictating doctor’s orders, and they have been a team ever since. Now they are business partners.

Our Happy Place

While Blasinsky works in the back office and takes care of accounting, Yaniga is out front handling sales and operations. Some mothers and daughters would have trouble working so closely but this duo has been in business together for 24 years now and have worked out all the kinks.

“When she was younger, I would sometimes have to say, ‘I’m not your mother today, we are co-workers.’ Now I look forward to coming in and seeing my daughter. We have a level of respect and trust with each other,” explained Blasinsky.

“It’s fantastic to sit next to your mother and work. We are very close, best friends. But it takes time,” adds Yaniga.

Both women agree that buying an Any Lab Test Now franchise has brought unexpected blessings to their lives. While they set out to provide lab testing choices with a high level of customer service in an inviting facility, they were pleasantly surprised by how grateful their clients were for their services.

There was the long-suffering patient who came in to get a lab test for Lyme’s disease after her doctor repeatedly refused to order it. She got a positive test result which she took back to her doctor to finally receive a diagnosis, treatment, and relief. She was ecstatic to get a good quality of life back!

“I get hugged daily. There is so much gratitude here. It’s our happy place,” shared Blasinsky. Every day we get an opportunity to help people change their lives and make a difference in our community.”

Sadly, Ohio, especially their community, is in the grip of not only an opioid epidemic, but it is also a hotbed for methamphetamine labs. Hundreds of children in the Cleveland-area suffer from the effects of methamphetamine exposure. Blasinsky and Yaniga’s franchise location works with county agencies and child and family services to offer exposure testing for children that no other lab offers, not even hospitals. They also offer confidential lab testing for parents who have a child who may be in drug trouble. They can get quick results that will help them get their kids on the right track before they end up with irreversible damage, physically, mentally, and legally. It is not over-stating it to say the work Blasinsky and Yaniga do at their Any Lab Test Now location is life-changing and life-saving.

“We offer everyone who walks in the door compassion and we treat them with respect. There is so much good work we are doing here. We give them answers, we save them money. It’s wonderful,” said Yaniga.

A Family Legacy

Nothing binds a family together quite like shared blood, sweat and tears that results in success. Blasinsky and Yaniga have achieved that with their Any Lab Test Now franchise (and their early morning boxing sessions). Their passion for their business and their hard work has been rewarded with personal, professional and financial success. They believe the fast-changing health care landscape will continue to make Any Lab Test Now a high growth business, as health insurance becomes more costly and burdensome, and consumers seek out opportunities to take control of their own health. Yaniga already has an eye to the future and hopes the business can be passed down through the generations and that her children, ages 9 and 6, will one day carry on the legacy of Any Lab Test Now as a community-oriented family business.
