“WellBiz Brands’ dedication to bringing exceptional wellness experiences to their customers truly makes them an industry leader. They provide each of their portfolio companies with individualized guidance and growth plans to bring their first-in-class offerings to as many consumers as possible, while keeping that valuable personal touch,” said Josh McCarter, CEO of Mindbody. “Our collaboration with WellBiz Brands has allowed us to consciously evolve to the specific needs of our customers over the years to enhance our offerings to better serve not just WellBiz Brands, but the entire wellness industry.”

WellBiz Brands has secured three spots on the Inc. 5000 list over the last four years, highlighting their unique ability to quickly scale businesses into some of the most loved brands.

Additionally, WellBiz Brands provides its portfolio with access to shared services, infrastructure and support. As part of this, WellBiz was able to secure PPP funding for its brands to assist them through the pandemic.

“As WellBiz has expanded our portfolio over the years, including our most recent acquisitions, Mindbody has grown, innovated and expanded alongside us,” said WellBiz Brands' Chief Executive Officer, Jeremy Morgan. “After a year of unprecedented hurdles for the wellness industry, we are honored to be chosen for the 2021 Industry Icon Award. We look forward to continuing our dedication to serving our consumers.”
