Fastest Labs is the first and only drug, alcohol, and DNA testing franchise in the United States that is non-medical and operates as a brick-and-mortar opportunity. Fastest Labs is already the number one fastest-growing drug testing franchise in this industry, with over 70 physical franchise locations and thousands of drug tests conducted each year. They see clients within 5 minutes rather than a typical 1-hour wait at a medical facility. LabFusion, their proprietary drug testing technology, reads and immediately reports a client’s drug test results in a confidential portal (rather than 1-3 days) enabling Fastest Labs to be an industry disrupter. Franchisees are able to find simple, small, class b real estate and can be open in as little as 2-4 months.

Fastest Labs franchisees stand side by side in front of the Fastest Labs building with logo.
