ADDITIONAL INTERNATIONAL QUESTIONS
Why is the company expanding internationally?
Our OPTAVIA Community has been committed to making America healthy and has helped more than one million people transform their lives. We are inspiring more people than ever to get healthy and live their best life, evidenced by record-breaking growth and impact in our home market.
The transformations we have inspired here in the United States are just the beginning. The pursuit quest for health extends far beyond our border, as we know we can make a positive impact on other populations around the world.
When and where will the expansion take place?
We are excited to expand to Singapore and Hong Kong in the first half of 2019. To learn more, please read our International Expansion Packet, currently available on OPTAVIA COACH ANSWERS.
Why has the company selected Asia, and not another part of the world, like Latin America?
Asia is experiencing one of the fastest growing obesity rates in the world. Diseases our communities struggle with here in the West are now common in the East. In fact, more than half of the Asian population is actively trying to lose weight.
What products and plans will be available in Asia?
We will bring the same clinically studied plans and Fuelings we offer in the U.S. – including the popular Optimal Weight 5 & 1 Plan® – to new OPTAVIA Clients in Asia. We will offer a diverse selection of Fuelings, and we will continue to grow our portfolio over time as we introduce new Fuelings that reflect local taste preferences.
How can I participate in international expansion?
The first step is to start building relationships with others who have connections to Singapore and Hong Kong by sharing all OPTAVIA has to offer. Participate in the Global Health Ambassador Club (GHAC). This program rewards OPTAVIA Coaches who develop Coaches who become Health Pioneer Club members in Singapore and Hong Kong, and it offers a yearly payout on top of the current compensation plan. *More on the International Expansion Packet can be found on OPTAVIA COACH ANSWERS.
