Start Your Own Home-Based Business!
A Lice Treatment Center® (LTC) franchise provides the motivated entrepreneur with everything needed to compete in the lucrative lice treatment industry. Being a part of LTC’s nationwide franchise system gives you a distinct competitive advantage over others in the lice treatment industry. A great livelihood and lifestyle, LTC’s home-based business model is a predictable approach to assisting those dealing with head lice.
Under the direction of medical director, Dr. Elin Cohen MD, a pediatrician and specialist in the treatment of head lice, the LTC franchise certification program sets the standard for the professional treatment and prevention of head lice infestations. As a result, LTC franchise owners have access to the most effective all-natural products and treatment methods available and avoid devices with only partial effectiveness. More important, because of a well-established history of superior service, our franchisees are positioned to charge a premium for their in-home and on-site services anywhere in the nation.
Head lice are found worldwide. Infestations have no seasonality or geographic preference. In the United States, infestations are most common among school-age children attending childcare, pre-school, elementary school, middle schools, boarding schools and camps.
An American Academy of Pediatrics report indicates that the head lice treatment industry is estimated at $1 BILLION annually.1
According to the Centers for Disease Control, it is estimated that 6 MILLION to 12 MILLION head lice infestations occur each year in the United States among children 3 to 11 years of age.2
It should also be noted that a National Association of School Nurses study indicated that 12 to 24 MILLION school days are lost each year in the United States due to head lice.3
Because of the negative perception and school systems' "no-nit" policies, once an infestation is confirmed it is almost always immediately followed by prompt action by concerned parents, camp directors and school administrators with little regard to cost.
