Travel is fun. Preparing for travel can be a pain. Depending on where you’re headed, your to-do list can range from obtaining visas to Yellow Typhoid Fever immunizations.

One company, Passport Health, plans to cash in on busy globetrotters looking for a one-stop shop. The Sacramento franchise offers destination-specific healthcare. 

The parent company was founded in Baltimore in 1994. It is the nation’s largest network of vaccination clinics. Last year, the company pulled in $20 million in revenue. 

Locally, Passport Health doesn’t have a lot of competition right now. But with 60 million people who left North American last year to travel overseas, there’s plenty of demand.
