March 15, 2012 // Franchising.com // San Diego - Stroller Strides, the fitness franchise run by moms for moms is launching a new business model! The company, known for promoting health and fitness for prenatal and post-pregnancy moms and their babies, has been recognized year after year as one of the country’s fastest growing franchises. Founder Lisa Druxman, M.A. is now offering a new Business Development model, designed for franchisees who want to own and operate their own business, in a developmental and supervisory role, without actually instructing the classes.
For ten years, Stroller Strides has offered small instructor owned and operated franchises, creating thousands of careers that are supportive of motherhood. While they will still offer this Classic Model, Stroller Strides now has an opportunity for franchisees who want to own and operate a larger business. The new Business Development model is a larger territory and offers intensive training for those who want to operate on a larger scale. Marketing, access to the Stroller Strides web based business center, a public relations system and an email campaign program is also included at a cost of $25,000.
Since 2001, Druxman has owned and operated her own Stroller Strides territory in San Diego. She realized that this model was extremely profitable even through rocky economic times, which lead to the new Business Development model.
"We are so excited about the release of this new model. We still have the Classic Stroller Strides franchise for those moms who want to teach their own classes and operate their small business,” Druxman said. “The new Business Development model will support those who are looking for a fulfilling business that makes great financial sense.”
A trainer and wellness coach, Druxman created Stroller Strides, (www.strollerstrides.com), after the birth of her son. A fitness professional for 20+ years, she has received numerous awards including NAWBO’s Business Owner of The Year, and the Stevie Awards Entrepreneur Of The Year. NBC named Lisa Druxman one of “America’s Favorite Moms”.
In 2011, Stroller Strides received many accolades, including being named one of the 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies, Entrepreneur's Franchise 500 and Low Cost Franchises. Franchise Business Review just named Stroller Strides a Top Franchise in 2012, at number 28. http://www.franchisebusinessreview.com/tour/Content/FBR_Lev
