November 15, 2016 // Franchising.com // COLTS NECK, N.J. – Not many franchises can say they have professional athletes, doctors, military veterans, firefighters, high-level executives, multi-brand franchisees, independent business owners and a pop star in their franchise system, but Retro Fitness can. The fast-growing, national low-cost high-value fitness franchise has been gaining popularity amongst a wide group of franchise prospects and is increasingly attracting multi-unit franchisees to its system. In the past 18 months alone, 15 separate groups of multi-unit franchise owners have joined the franchise.
“Our diverse group of franchisees is a big part of what makes Retro Fitness so successful,” said Retro Fitness CEO and founder Eric Casaburi. “Everyone brings something different to the table, and while we’re the ones providing them with all the knowledge they need to know about the Retro Fitness business model, there’s so much that we learn from them in return. It’s an exciting time to be part of the Retro Fitness family.”
Here are some reasons recent franchisees joined the Retro Fitness franchise system:
Retro Fitness has more than 150 locations operating in 16 states and is on track to have 250 gyms open in the next two years. The burgeoning franchise has already signed more than 20 franchise agreements for new or emerging market development and opened 14 gyms this year. Driving the investor-friendly franchise’s growth are strong-unit economics, streamlined business operations and a focused, forward-thinking approach that continuously brings more value to franchisees and members.
Founded in 2004 by entrepreneur Eric Casaburi, Retro Fitness has evolved from a regional Northeast gym concept into a national fitness system with more than 150 gyms open in 16 states. Under Casaburi’s leadership, Retro Fitness is expanding its footprint with more than 100 gyms in its development pipeline and plans to have 250 gyms open in the next two years in new, major markets, such as Florida, Illinois, California, Maryland, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. Each Retro Fitness location is equipped with a full-service fitness center, including 60-100 pieces of equipment supplied by leading manufacturers. The burgeoning franchise has placed in the top 300 of Entrepreneur’s magazine’s prestigious Franchise 500 list for six consecutive years.
