Denver-based SlimGenics Weight Control Centers, the leader in providing consumers with nutritionally-based weight loss programs, announced today that it has been named as No. 13 on ColoradoBiz magazine’s top 100 woman-owned companies list. ColoradoBiz compiles the exclusive list annually; this is the first year that SlimGenics has been nominated. The award recognizes outstanding woman-owned businesses that demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in the industry and communities they serve.
“We are honored to be included on such a prestigious list, and to be in the company of other outstanding woman-owned businesses in our community,” said Katherine Ott, CEO of SlimGenics. “At SlimGenics, we strive to serve those who want to lead a better quality of life by providing them with a time-proven weight-loss program and personalized support that has changed thousands of lives.”
Ott launched SlimGenics in Colorado in March 2003 to help address the growing obesity epidemic and fulfill the need for a weight-loss solution that not only helps people lose weight but, more importantly, provides a simple and straightforward plan to create a healthier lifestyle. Today, SlimGenics operates 29 locations across Colorado and Minnesota, with more than 200 employees. Ott’s strategic yet cost-effective operational and marketing methodologies have created solid brand awareness and customer loyalty to SlimGenics resulting in strong overall revenue growth for the company over the past 10 years.
Additionally, in 2010, Ott established the SlimGenics Foundation, which supports organizations and innovative programs that provide nutritional education and help to prevent childhood obesity and malnutrition. She firmly believes in supporting the communities that SlimGenics serves by donating a portion of all sales to the mission of preventing childhood obesity and by partnering with like-minded organizations such as LiveWell Colorado, Denver Urban Gardens and 2040 Partners for Health.
