Benzer Pharmacy Touts First Franchisee in Providence, Rhode Island

Corporate expansion into third biggest New England city marks another milestone on the east coast

Taking the road less traveled has been a hallmark of Benzer Pharmacy’s expansion into smaller communities across the country. But at times, those efforts have brought the brand to densely populated places as well. The latest introduction in the latter category comes by way of Providence, Rhode Island, the largest city in the state and now the new home to the 29th Franchisee in the system.

Although Rhode Island may be tiny in terms of geographical size, the establishment of Benzer’s first storefront in Providence is big news for the brand, says President Alpesh Patel, who suggests there’s a historical precedent at work in the company’s recent growth spurt.

“Providence is one of the oldest cities in the country. Founded in 1636, the New England stronghold has been a place of inspiration for generations of Americans,” Patel said. “In a region where the state motto is summed up in one word, ‘Hope,’ we bring our own hopes with us as we seek to improve the way the pharmacy business does business here in Rhode Island and beyond.”

Central to that idea, according to Patel, is that there is no single “big-box store” retailer that’s going to be all things to all people. In fact, he’s counting on Benzer being the better choice for the growing number of people who are looking for something more than a virtual drugstore vending machine.

“Our first and foremost goal is to keep the friendly, personal feel intact within every retail outlet that’s part of Benzer Pharmacy Franchise,” explained Patel. “If Providence can rebrand itself as the ‘Creative Capital’ for its commitment to education and the arts, Benzer can absolutely play a role in bringing back the best elements that make the neighborhood pharmacy preferable to its bigger neighbors down the block.”

Located at 265 Waterman Street in Providence, Rhode Island, the new Benzer Pharmacy Franchise is now open for business weekdays from 9 am to 5:30 pm. Phone: 401-340-1800; Fax: 401-340-1801.
