Pharmaceutical Franchising Introduced by Galt Phranchise Systems and Holds First Training Class

April 4, 2018

ATLANTA, GA Galt Phranchise Systems, LLC (GPS) announces the launch of the pharmaceutical industry’s first franchising model. GPS is the first and only pharmaceutical company which operates a sales platform based upon the spirit of entrepreneurialism through Phranchising (Pharmaceutical Franchising). Over 500 sales territories have been created across the United States and each Phranchise owner has exclusive rights to represent Galt Pharmaceuticals, LLC (Galt) products after they are certified to promote in their local communities according to FDA guidelines and approved labeling. A milestone for GPS was reached in April with the first class of 35 Phranchisees and Authorized Sales Representatives successfully completing training.

“The Galt Phranchise model is a unique and efficient system that emphasizes local customer service addressing individual physician and patient therapeutic needs” said Galt Co-Founder, Barry Patel, Pharm.D. Galt Phranchisees leverage their existing and newly established relationships within the medical/pharmacy community to address unmet clinical needs that may be addressed with FDA approved pharmaceuticals. Although, the operations and management of territories is best left to the Phranchisee in this groundbreaking model, the support for medical affairs, safety reporting, product marketing, distribution and overall FDA compliance is provided through Galt corporate resources. “As the pharmaceutical industry continues to evolve, one thing remains constant in that prescribers of medication still seek education and dialogue on features and benefits of pharmaceuticals and Galt is personalizing this process through entrepreneurs who intimately know their communities” said Galt Co-Founder Wade Smith.

This class of phranchisees are establishing their businesses through the promotion of Galt's current lead product, Doral (Quazepam). Doral has FDA indications for the treatment of insomnia characterized by patients having difficulty falling asleep, difficulty maintaining sleep and early morning awakenings. “Doral offers HCPs a unique alternative to the many available sleep-aids on the market and Galt Phranchisees have been trained on FDA approved prescribing information ensuring they present Doral in an ethical and compliant manner to healthcare providers in their community” said Wolfgang Freund, Vice President of Sales.

Galt seeks qualified entrepreneurs that would like to own a piece of their own local pharmaceutical company business and can email to request information.

About Doral (Quazepam)

Doral (Quazepam) is indicated for the treatment of insomnia characterized by difficulty falling asleep, frequent nocturnal awakenings, and/or early morning awakenings.

Important Safety Information (ISI)

Concomitant use of benzodiazepines and opioids may result in profound sedation, respiratory depression, coma, and death [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1), Drug Interactions (7)]. Reserve concomitant prescribing of these drugs for use in patients for whom alternative treatment options are inadequate. Limit dosages and durations to the minimum required. Follow patients for signs and symptoms of respiratory depression and sedation.

Doral can produce daytime impairment, and this risk increases with dose and concomitant use of other CNS depressants. If insomnia worsens or fails to remit after 7 to 10 days of treatment, this might be indication of an underlying illness. Doral is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to quazepam or other benzodiazepines, established or suspected sleep apnea, or chronic pulmonary insufficiency. Rare cases of severe anaphylactic reactions including angioedema and dyspnea have been reported. Complex behaviors, such as sleep driving or sleep eating, have been reported with the use of sedative-hypnotics. Immediately evaluate the onset of any new behavioral changes. Benzodiazepines may worsen depression, and appropriate precautions should be considered in at risk patients. For a full list of warnings and precautions, please refer to the full prescribing information.
