Yesterday the news crossed the wire that we are franchising! Since the first studio on Travis opened in the spring of 2012, the bodybar experience has evolved into a business model we believe is ready to grow through franchising. The bodybar team is looking for entrepreneurs who are passionate about serving people and transforming bodies, minds and communities.
All market signs indicate that now is a good time to move forward.
- In Entrepreneur magazine’s 36th Annual Franchise 500 report, fitness boutiques with specialized classes and more personal service for clients are at the forefront of growth as they typically have smaller footprints and keep costs down for franchisees.
- According to the 2012 IRHSA report and recent IBIS World data, more than 58 million people in the U.S. are using health and fitness facilities, which have contributed to an increase in revenue, now at $21.8 billion.
- And, the Physical Activity Council (PAC) reports show that inactivity is decreasing, and more adults are looking for and interested in investing in a healthier lifestyle.
bodybar has a model in place to assist potential franchisees. From building out the studio location, marketing, grand opening events and recruiting clients, bodybar has a proven infrastructure ready to deliver to business-minded people in an easy-to-use format.
bodybar’s multiple class formats are available for beginners up to experienced athletes, all focused on core, cardiovascular drills and low-impact strength training.
Our Travis and Plano studios have grown because of our amazingly talented team and all of our wonderful clients. We are grateful for your continued support and we hope you’ll help us spread the word so that we can share our healthy living model and expand our brand through franchising, starting with a focus on Texas.
We wouldn’t be here without you! We’re #RaisingtheBar in business!
