9Round Ranked One Of The Top Global Franchises By Entrepreneur Magazine

July 24, 2017 // Franchising.com // GREENVILLE, S.C. - As the world’s fastest-growing kickboxing fitness franchise, 9Round continues to make an impact. This month, 9Round was ranked #103 in Entrepreneur Magazine’s list of Top Global Franchises.

This list recognizes the top 200 companies seeking international franchisees and compiles the rankings based on each company’s score for Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® list. The score is then adjusted to give extra weight to the company’s international size and growth.

Since its founding nine years ago, 9Round has grown at an aggressive pace both in the U.S. and internationally, operating more than 500 locations in 40 US states and 11 countries. Overall, 9Round’s international franchise growth increased by 70 percent since 2016 and the company has plans to open new locations in Turkey and Costa Rica this year.

“I think one of the main reasons for our continued success is 9Round’s universal appeal.” says Shannon Hudson, Founder and CEO, 9Round. “People around the world love the 9Round concept and we are always looking for new markets to expand.”

Developed by Hudson, the former IKF Light Middleweight Kickboxing Champion of the World, 9Round workouts consist of nine, three-minute stations of activities that include cardio, weight training, core exercises and kicks and punches on 100-pound, double-end, upper cut and speed bags. A real boxing bell rings to begin the workout, another to warn the station is ending and a third to signal the end. After completing each round, members have a 30-second active break.

“Having 9Round included on this list is a result of our team’s hard work and commitment to excellence,” says Hudson. “We are just getting started and look forward to achieving even more growth outside of the US in the years to come.”
