GNC is the largest global specialty retailer of nutritional supplements, which includes vitamin, mineral and herbal supplements, sports nutrition products, diet and energy products and specialty supplements. GNC has more than 4,800 retail locations throughout the United States, including more than 1,300 domestic franchise locations, more than 1,000 store-within-a-store locations under its strategic alliance with Rite Aid and more than 800 locations in more than 35 foreign markets including Canada and Mexico.
The Self-Care Economy
Today's consumers take charge of their health. They strive to feel better, look better and perform at their optimum potential. And highly publicized research reveals that balanced nutrition and healthy lifestyles can help consumers achieve their goals.
Fueled by extraordinary demand, the booming retail supplement market now exceeds $17.8 billion in annual sales - and GNC, General Nutrition Centers, commands the lion's share of the industry's specialty-retail market.
Yet the market still hasn't fulfilled its potential. Experts predict consumer demand will continue to grow at a dramatic pace - and with good reason. Three out of every four vitamin users are over age 35.
Take advantage of this growing self-care economy now. Franchise with GNC and command your share of the accelerating nutritional supplement market.
