Chicago, Illinois – June 18, 2013 – Asking for help is okay. Isn’t that what your parents always told you? It is also why Independent Rx Consulting is a business today. Jason Poquette blogger, pharmacist and founder of The Honest Apothecary is often asked by his readers for somewhere to turn for help and guidance on buying or starting a pharmacy. For Jason, it was easy to find that help for his readers through Independent Rx Consulting. A Chicago-based company with a unique approach in providing entrepreneurs of the community pharmacy industry with the skills and knowledge needed to start or expand their business, and position themselves for long-term success.

With a combined 100 years experience in the pharmacy industry, partners Tim Clark and Owen BonDurant offer two unique options including one for clients who want to start a new pharmacy and another for those looking to acquire a pharmacy. Independent Rx Consulting has managed to fill a void in the market that is unmet by any other company.
â€œWe are a partner, rather than just a company that connects buyers and sellers. Our goal is to work with our clients throughout the process including business plans, obtaining financing, working with wholesalers and helping them find a location. Then, after an opening or a buyout we review financial reports and work with them to create operational efficienciesâ€, says BonDurant.
What makes Independent Rx Consulting unique is they train to a skill-set for sustained success and their focus is on a basic retail pharmacy, not compounding, not long-term care or other specialties. It is simply providing attention and coaching to the skills needed in operating a retail pharmacy.
With long seeded roots in the industry and after years of owning multiple independent pharmacies, Tim Clark and Owen BonDurant were consistently contacted by new owners and soon-to-be-owners seeking advice. After searching for a company to assist them with growing their own chain of stores, Clark and BonDurant quickly realized there wasnâ€™t such an entity in the market. They weren’t able to find another company that wanted to be a partner and go beyond just connecting buyers and sellers. Soon afterwards, came the birth of Independent Rx Consulting and a new opportunity for the independent pharmacy community.
Independent Rx Consulting is a team who has opened or completed the acquisition of over 17 community pharmacies in less than two years. Their services have managed to fill a desperate need in the industry, and thatâ€™s what turned the head of one of the industryâ€™s most renowned bloggers, Jason Poquette of The Honest Apothecary.
Starting a pharmacy is a large investment both financially and emotionally, so why do it alone. Finally, there is a company that has the knowledge, resources and experience to make being an entrepreneur easier.
