COSTA MESA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 12, 2018--Lindora, one of the largest medically supervised weight loss and wellness companies in the country, said today that its new, flexible subscription pricing model has proven to be the overwhelming option for patients and is leading the company’s dramatic growth.

“The patient response has been remarkable,” said John Tangredi, Vice President of Operations at Lindora. “New patient growth has skyrocketed. In July, we brought on nearly twice as many new patients as we did last year and August was up more than 50 percent. We’re also seeing a significant increase in engagement among our current patients.”

Lindora, known for its ketogenic approach to weight loss for nearly 50 years, launched the subscription membership program in January, 2018.

Will Righeimer, CEO at Lindora, added “The whole reason we shifted to a subscription membership model was to make our premium, differentiated service accessible to more people. We’re now appealing to a much broader audience and we’re attracting a younger customer who sees subscription membership as a preferred way of buying services. For both Lindora and our patients, the approach has been an absolute home run.”

Lindora’s New Membership Pricing allows new and existing patients to choose from three core options where they can pay for their services monthly:

Wellness – for those looking to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The Wellness option gives patients the ability to take advantage of Lindora’s extended services and products without having to participate in a weight loss program. Key benefits include medical lab and exam, body composition analysis, weekly booster shots and every day service and product discounts. Priced at $49 per month for an annual membership. Wellness Plus – for those looking to lose a moderate amount of weight and establish a healthy lifestyle. The Wellness Plus option gives patients the opportunity to participate in one weight loss program during the year with all of the benefits of the Wellnes s option. Priced at $99 per month with a $99 activation fee for an annual membership. Wellness Unlimited – for those looking to lose a significant amount of weight and establish a healthy lifestyle. The Wellness Plus option gives patients the opportunity to participate in as many weight loss programs as they want during the year with all of the benefits of the Wellnes s option. Priced at $149 per month with a $149 activation fee for an annual membership.

“I think the other reason we’re seeing such high adoption rates for subscription memberships is that our model allows us to bundle a number of services that had previously been a la carte services. When patients see everything they get for about $3 a day, it makes for an extremely compelling value proposition,” said Tangredi.

Along with the new subscription membership plan, Righeimer believes that Lindora’s recent success has also come from its collection of new, clean label, nutritional products. The company has introduced 30 new products in the last twelve months with several more slated by the end of the year.

Righeimer took the helm at Lindora in May of 2017. Since then, the company has focused on driving valuation by completing a comprehensive corporate rebranding, introducing new, in-demand nutritional and wellness products and services, and shifting to a subscription based, recurring revenue model.

In the near future, Righeimer and his team plan to launch additional growth strategies including a new line of healthy, prepared meals called LindoraFresh™, an online platform that would make Lindora programs available to anyone in the world, and industry partnerships with wellness providers and payers.
