SOLDIERFIT Signs First Franchise Agreement

Washington, DC Area Resident to Open Military-Inspired Fitness Franchise

July 07, 2015 // // FREDERICK, Maryland – SOLDIERFIT, a unique, military-inspired fitness franchise headquartered in Maryland, announces today the signing of a new franchise agreement with Frederick resident and longtime SOLDIERFIT gym member, Harry Santucci.

Santucci will open the first SOLDIERFIT franchise location later this year – site selection is now underway.

SOLDIERFIT works to create a fun and affordable fitness experience for its members – ‘Troops’ – and provides them with access to bootcamps, kid’s fitness classes, personal training and a functional fitness gym to lead healthier, stronger lives.

“I purchased a SOLDIERFIT franchise because the company is in the business of helping people. SOLDIERFIT’s company culture resonates with my personal values,” says Santucci. “This concept gives me the opportunity to fulfill a lifelong dream of becoming a business owner. My goal is to become the ‘go-to’ provider of functional fitness in my area, where individuals can come together to build camaraderie as they focus on reaching personal goals through fitness.”

Prior to becoming a franchise owner, Santucci worked for several years as an accountant in the Washington, D.C. area. Santucci is very involved in his community and has been a long-time volunteer for the Frederick, Maryland SCORE Chapter. He is currently on the board of directors and serves as treasure for 22 Needs A Face, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to combat the number of service member suicides taking place within our nation every day. 22 Needs A Face educates the masses about post-traumatic stress and serves as a support group for transitioning veterans.

The franchise program, developed with the help of Chicago-based iFranchise Group, launched in February and primarily targets the East Coast, with national expansion to follow. Immediate franchise expansion plans call for locations across the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Southeast, focusing on Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida. The company is currently running a contest, Mission: Fit to Own, that will award one U.S. military veteran a grand prize of a waived franchise fee and one year with no royalties.
