OUR STORY

A Better Model for Pharmacies

Benzer Pharmacy is an American success story. It began in 2009 when Alpesh Patel was a young pharmacist working for a national chain in an underserved inner-city area. It didn’t take long for him to realize that the business model behind America’s large pharmacy chains was broken. The constant drive for shareholder performance over patient needs didn’t benefit customers, nor did it give pharmacists the discretion and independence they deserved to service their communities. Mr. Patel set out to solve the problem, founding a new kind of pharmacy business.

Today, Benzer is a rapidly growing national pharmacy chain dedicated to patient wellness and the business and professional support local pharmacists need to better serve their communities. With its People First philosophy, Benzer delivers a new vision for local pharmacies, reinvented for the 21st Century.
