Hosted by the South Tampa Chamber of Commerce, the official ribbon cutting for the first Profile by Sanford franchise in Tampa will take place on Monday, February 4th, from 9 AM to 10 AM at 128 South Westshore Boulevard, Suite C. Named an Entrepreneur Magazine Top New Franchise in 2017 and 2018, Profile is the comprehensive lifestyle change service developed by Sanford Health.
Franchise Partner Betsy Shafer said, “We are proud South Tampa Chamber members, and we are excited to celebrate Profile’s introduction to the business community at the ribbon cutting. There’s nothing like Profile in the local market, especially with a genetic component. Profile Precise is a test that harnesses the power of genetics to map each member’s DNA and analyzes how each body metabolizes carbohydrates. Understanding our genetic makeup is essential for long-term weight loss success, and Profile’s ability to bring this science to healthy living is what separates us from so many other concepts.”
South Tampa Chamber of Commerce President Kelly Flannery said, “We are thrilled to have Profile by Sanford as a member of the South Tampa Chamber and the South Tampa community. It is a testament to our thriving business environment when innovative companies, like Profile by Sanford, choose our community to grow and build their business.”
Open to the public, the ribbon cutting celebration will feature a chance to learn more about the Profile model, which combines nutrition, activity, and lifestyle coaching to help members lose weight and keep it off. Guests will meet the Tampa Profile team and tour the new Westshore office space, while enjoying complimentary samples of Profile food, prizes, music, and membership discounts in celebration of this milestone.
Along with the genetic testing component, a personalized meal plan is created for each member that includes nutritious Profile food and healthy grocery options. Profile offers a diverse line of food options, including protein bars, shakes, pastas, soups, salad dressings, and entrees. Members also meet one-on-one with Certified Profile coaches to help them change behaviors and encourage accountability. To learn more, visit www.profileplan.com/tampa/ or call 813-536-5151.
