January 04, 2016 // Franchising.com // ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Continuing to prove its ability to knock out the competition, not only in the fitness industry but in all of franchising, TITLE Boxing Club International, the nation’s largest boxing fitness franchise, has been named the No. 1 Fastest-Growing Franchise by Inc. Magazine. TITLE Boxing Club, a best-in-class operator, is redefining what it means to deliver a “one-two punch” with both its accolades in franchising and fitness.
At the helm of the franchise’s success is seasoned franchise executive John Rotche, TITLE Boxing Club CEO, former IFA Entrepreneur of the Year, and current IFA Board Member. Rotche’s leadership in franchising helped him assemble a highly experienced team, including the hiring of President Susan Boresow, former CMO of major franchise brands. Together, the team has maintained explosive growth for the past three years while continuing to rack up awards and accolades. TITLE Boxing Club continues to evolve and adapt to industry trends, along with the needs and wants of all its members of the high-end boxing fitness studios.
The No. 1 position came as a result of TITLE Boxing Club achieving a 1,774 percent three-year growth. The brand also grabbed the No. 250 spot on the 2015 Inc. 5000 list, which had the most competitive crop of companies in its history. In addition, the aggregate revenue of all listed companies was $205 billion, and these companies generated more than 647,000 jobs over the past three years.
Looking to build on its success, TITLE Boxing Club executives recently announced their search for new, energetic franchisees to help expand the brand’s presence throughout the country. TITLE Boxing Club is dedicated to continuing its search for the best locations to grow and is passionate about offering an unparalleled workout experience to members across the country.
“I cannot think of a better way to close out 2015 than with the prestigious recognition of being named the No. 1 fastest-growing franchise in America,” said John Rotche, CEO of TITLE Boxing Club. “As we look towards the future, myself, Susan Boresow and the rest of our dedicated executive team, look forward to continuing our steady and strategic growth, both domestically and internationally, through qualified and passionate franchisees. For us, the ultimate honor is delivering an unprecedented workout to men and women across the country that are seeking a place to be fit and belong.”
With more than 175 clubs open and under-construction, and another 250 clubs under development nationwide and in Mexico, the brand has plans to continue its explosive pace of opening a minimum of one club a week in 2016. TITLE Boxing Club is truly carving a niche in the fitness segment with its 30-, 60-, and 75-minute workouts that take place in a hip, high-energy fitness studio. Clubs across the country in metropolitan areas like New York, Boston, Chicago and Los Angeles are all focused on delivering a fitness regimen associated to the sport of boxing. The workout offers members a safe and effective, interval-based workout program, which combines bouts of intense cardio, boxing and kickboxing exercises on heavy bags, with short periods of active rest, followed by a core workout with medicine balls.
The company started franchising in 2009 and has since exploded across the country. With a solid business model that makes owning and operating a club fun and profitable, the company shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, TITLE Boxing Club has plans to continue to expand in Mexico and begin development in Canada in 2016.
