Con­cepts Cater to Fran­chisee Pas­sion and Profit

Inc. (USA) - - INNOVATE -

The most suc­cess­ful fran­chise con­cepts en­gage and sup­port fran­chisees on both emo­tional and fi­nan­cial lev­els. Snap Fit­ness of­fers fran­chise in­vestors the op­por­tu­nity to make a dif­fer­ence in their com­mu­ni­ties, while also gen­er­at­ing an at­trac­tive re­turn on in­vest­ment.

“Any­time you be­come your own boss, it’s im­por­tant to be pas­sion­ate about the in­dus­try,” says Peter Taun­ton, CEO and founder of the chain of fit­ness cen­ters based in Chan­has­sen, Min­nesota. “For our in­dus­try, be­ing a fran­chise is about more than open­ing a club with a proven con­cept. Our fran­chisees are suc­cess­ful by be­ing pas­sion­ate about cre­at­ing pos­i­tive, healthy ex­pe­ri­ences in their com­mu­nity and see­ing peo­ple reach their goals.”

Snap Fit­ness’s proven con­cept makes it easy for fran­chisees to suc­ceed in their own goals, Taun­ton says. “Fea­tures such as a sim­ple, turnkey sys­tem, low startup costs, and sup­port from the cor­po­rate of­fice at­tracts very tal­ented peo­ple,” he adds.

Snap Fit­ness has grown to more than 2,500 lo­ca­tions open or in devel­op­ment in 24 coun­tries. “By the start of 2018, do­mes­ti­cally and in­ter­na­tion­ally, we aim to have around 3,000 clubs open or in op­er­a­tion,” Taun­ton says.

For those who pos­sess both a love of travel and the de­sire to own their own busi­nesses, Cruise Plan­ners pro­vides a “busi­ness in a box” so­lu­tion. “Cruise Plan­ners is at­trac­tive to peo­ple who have a pas­sion for travel – peo­ple who plan their fam­ily va­ca­tions or peo­ple who friends view as their go-to for travel ad­vice,” says

Michelle Fee, CEO and co­founder of the Coral Springs, Florida-based com­pany.

With more than 1,800 lo­ca­tions in all 50 states, Cruise Plan­ners main­tains a fo­cus on growth. “We are look­ing to ex­pand na­tion­ally but con­cen­trat­ing our ef­forts out west,” Fee says.
