Serial entrepreneur, Karl Fitzpatrick, has extended his ever-growing portfolio of franchise businesses by securing the Irish Master Franchise rights for the US based aesthetics and wellness business, 4EverYoung Anti-Aging Solutions.
4EverYoung is a unique business operating within the emerging aesthetics market, combining popular cosmetic treatments with wellness services. Established in 2014, 4EverYoung is headquartered in Florida and its treatments include cosmetic injectables, hormone replacement therapy and vitamin infusions.
Karl Fitzpatrick, who has already achieved phenomenal success in Ireland with franchise concepts, recognised the exponential growth in the global aesthetics industry and identified the 4EverYoung franchise model as the perfect brand to bring into the Irish market.
“Spending on anti-aging regimes is now a multi-billion euro industry and with the consumer placing increased emphasis on wellness, I was actively seeking a premium aesthetics franchise to disrupt the Irish market and 4EverYoung was exactly what I was looking for”, said Mr. Fitzpatrick.
When questioned about the lack of regulation within the sector at present, Karl acknowledged that the industry urgently needs regulation and called upon the incoming government to put appropriate standards in place to ensure that the increasing consumer base in Ireland is protected against incompetently administered treatments. Mr. Fitzpatrick seeks to lead by example by ensuring that all clinics will be doctor led.
Speaking about their expansion into the Irish market, co-founder of 4EverYoung, Carlton Washington, stated “We are delighted to be entering the Irish market and with Karl’s proven experience in growing international franchise concepts, we look forward to seeing 4EverYoung clinics open across Ireland over the coming years.”
Mr. Fitzpatrick confirmed that 4EverYoung has the potential to create over 100 jobs in Ireland over the next five years and is actively recruiting franchisees to join the network.
