Roy and Pat Sangster founded Sangster’s Health Centres in 1971.
By the late 70’s, the percentage of the population that purchased health foods was very small but growing rapidly. Seeing the potential, Roy and Pat made the decision to franchise and the first franchise store opened in Saskatoon in 1978. On the strength of Sangster’s exclusive brand of natural health products, the franchise grew to its current size. The original location in Yorkton, Saskatchewan remains in operation to this day.
Sangster’s Health Centres occupies a unique position in the industry, the stores provide vast knowledge and safe natural remedies for the prevention and treatment of disease and ailments. Sangster’s introduction and development of over 202 exclusively labeled products (vitamins, mineral, herbs, proteins, natural body care and organic foods) helped catapult Sangster’s name and product into a large number of Canadian households. From a solid base in Saskatchewan, Sangster’s has become a national brand name with franchise stores located across Canada.
