Medifast reported its results for Q2 2021 on August 4.
“This has been another outstanding quarter for Medifast, driven in large part by our success in driving growth in independent OPTAVIA Coaches to new highs, and empowering those Coaches to be more productive than ever before.” said Dan Chard, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Medifast. “We are leveraging technology in new and effective ways to deliver these results, building digital products, channels and platforms that enable our Coaches to create deeper and more effective connections with their Clients.
