We want you to feel comfortable starting the discovery process with us.  Below are answers to some of the frequently asked questions we receive about our franchise opportunity.  Additional information will be shared after a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) has been signed and candidates have received our Federal Disclosure Document (FDD) and have been properly disclosed.

Do I need healthcare industry experience to own an ANY LAB TEST NOW® franchise?

No.  In fact, our business opportunities are so diverse that many different types of experience work well in our business model.  We encourage you to learn more about our Ideal Candidate and Qualification expectations before completing an inquiry form to learn more.

Does ANY LAB TEST NOW® offer franchises outside of the U.S.?

ANY LAB TEST NOW® only operates and offers franchise opportunities within the United States.  However, we cannot operate in every state, based on direct access testing regulations. Please review our Available Markets map to assess availability by state.

What is your franchise fee?

ANY LAB TEST NOW®’s single unit franchise fee is $40,000. We also offer micro market and multi-unit development opportunities.

What is the difference between a single unit franchise and a micro market franchise?

A single unit, or stand alone unit is a brick-and-mortar store location that serves a territory with a minimum Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) population of 110,001 in a commercial retail center.  A micro market unit is within a territory with a population of 110,000 or less based on the MSA.  A micro market unit may be established in an approved business that complements the ANY LAB TEST NOW business model.

What is the investment range for a single unit ANY LAB TEST NOW® franchise?

The investment range for a single unit store location is $133,600 – $214,600.  This range includes the franchise fee.

We require a minimum net worth of $300,000; and minimum liquid capital of $50,000.

Does ANY LAB TEST NOW® offer financing?

We do not offer financing.  However, we can introduce you to Apple Pie Capital if you are interested in exploring a small business / SBA loan.

Does Any Lab Test Now offer a discount on the franchise fee to Veterans?

Yes, Any Lab Test Now is honored to participate in the VetFran Program and provides a ten (10%) discount on the franchise fee to honorably discharged veterans.

What is ANY LAB TEST NOW®’s recurring royalty fee?

Our royalty fee is 8% gross revenue, with a minimum of $500.00 per month.  Since our inception in 2007, we have not activated our national ad fund, yet provide our franchise owners high-quality and diverse marketing resources, creative, a robust website and digital advertising programs.

How much money can I make if I own an ANY LAB TEST NOW® store location?

ANY LAB TEST NOW® is a diverse business model.  We provide retail, direct access testing services directly to consumers.  Therefore, a visible retail site combined with executing marketing best practices is essential.  In addition, there are multiple business verticals that provide additional business growth opportunities.

The Federal Trade Commission regulates franchise opportunities; therefore, we are unable to provide candidates financial projections.  As you make your way through our discovery process, you will have the opportunity to speak with current franchise owners and review our Franchise Disclosure Document with additional details.

How long will it take to open an ANY LAB TEST NOW® location, once I sign my Franchise Agreement?

Once the franchise fee has been paid and documentation received, you will be introduced to our Training and Implementation Team.  They will immediately begin walking you through our build-out and opening process.

Most store locations are open within 180 days after Franchise Agreement execution; however, there are always variables that may delay or speed up the process, including:

  • Site selection
  • Lease execution
  • Required permits
  • Your individual participation.

How do I choose a location? Do you help with site selection?

Site selection is your responsibility and our Implementation Team is always involved to help in the selection process.  We are partnered with a national commercial real estate agency that understands our real estate requirements and can assist you in finding the right location.  Approval is required by ANY LAB TEST NOW® prior to lease execution.

What is the recommended store size?

The recommended store size is between 500 – 1,500 square feet.

What are the required hours of operation for the store location?

All store locations are required to be open a minimum of fifty-five (55) hours per week.  You are able to determine the best hours of operation based on your customers’ needs, location and local culture.  Common business hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., and Saturday from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m.

What type of training and support can I expect as a franchise owner?

That is a great question.  Training and support are continuous.  It all starts with the Implementation Team, who walks you step-by-step, from site selection through your Grand Opening.  You will then be assigned a Franchisee Success Representative (FSR) who is your support person that is there to serve you and your staff as needed.

During the onboarding process, you will attend a week-long New Franchisee Training event at our corporate office in Alpharetta, GA.  We host a robust Training Portal and offer onsite visits; access to our marketing and sales departments for specific training; online webinars; regional meetings and franchisee conference.

What types of lab tests will I be able to offer if I become a franchise owner?

Our menu of lab tests is expansive.  We offer a multitude of clinical lab tests; STI tests; paternity, ancestry and other genetic and DNA tests; toxicology tests, including drug and alcohol testing.  In addition, we offer consumers take-home options through our branded hormone testing kits and offer specimen collection services for specialty laboratories.

Do I find my own laboratories to perform the lab tests?

No, we have you covered.  That is one of the advantages of our business model.  All laboratories used by ANY LAB TEST NOW® must be critically vetted to ensure the tests they offer are viable and meet the standards and accreditations expected by physicians, employers and other professionals who rely on the test results. The laboratories we approve are required.   In addition, our testing volume as a system drives lower test prices that positively impact the franchisee’s bottom-line.
