(UnhappyFranchisee.Com) USA Mobile Drug Testing was founded in 2008, and is based in Tampa, FL.
The USA Mobile Drug Testing franchise website claims that their franchise offers the tools for building a successful random drug testing service business that you can run from home.
It states: “Owning a USAMDT Franchise offers most of the benefits of business ownership but provides important additional elements to help one succeed, such as a proven business model, comprehensive training, marketing expertise, and ongoing support. In addition, a nationally recognized brand and trademark provides instant consumer visibility and credibility.”
Like many brand-new, high-risk franchise opportunities with virtually no proven track record, USA Mobile Drug Testing markets itself as a lower-risk investment, stating:
“USAMDT Franchising provides many of the benefits of business ownership – the ability to make decisions and have control, to create wealth for the present and equity for the future; but is considered less risky than starting your own business.”

UnhappyFranchisee.Com has received a complaint from an unnamed USA Mobile Drug Testing franchise owner who claims the situation is actually even worse than it seems.
He/she claims that the system is in a state of collapse, that there is no franchise support, and many franchisees are looking for a way out.
A USA Mobile Drug Testing franchise owner writes:
Of the 40 remaining franchisees, over 25% are looking to get out or close because they are out of money, no longer want to send their money to the ZOR, there is no support, no structure or system and all of the knowledgeable employees at HQ are now gone.
We have contacted the corporate office of USA Mobile Drug Testing franchise about these concerns, and invite their clarification, correction or rebuttal.
