Miracle-Ear Franchise

Hearing aids

Kenneth Dahlberg started Dahlberg Electronics in 1948 and began
manufacturing the first Miracle-Ear hearing aids. Today, Miracle-Ear is a
subsidiary of Italian hearing aid distributor Amplifon, with U.S.
headquarters in Plymouth, Minnesota.

Miracle-Ear's retail locations offer free hearing tests and
consultations and offer service, warranty and after-care packages with
their hearing aids.

Ken Dahlberg, a World War II aviator turned electronic inventor, created the pillow radio for hospital patients' private listening. Ken's employer rejected the idea, and this inspired the founding of Dahlberg, Inc., which became the foundation of Miracle-Ear.

A few short years later, we were the first to offer an in-the-ear hearing aid. Since then, Miracle-Ear has continued to introduce innovative technology to remove the barriers of hearing loss. We've taken the size of hearing aids down to models that fit entirely in the ear canal. We've made technological improvements that allow us to customize a hearing solution to your individual hearing loss profile. And we've developed customer service practices to help ensure that you are completely satisfied with the products and support you receive from your Miracle-Ear representatives nationwide.

The total investment necessary to begin operation of a Miracle-Ear®
franchise is from $119,000 to $352,500. This includes from $35,000 to
$45,000 that must be paid to the franchisor or an affiliate for an
exclusive territory of up to 250,000 persons. This amount may be higher
if the size (population) of your exclusive territory is larger.
