StretchLab Signs Initial Franchise Agreements to Debut Nationwide
L.A.-Based Assisted Stretching Franchise Plans Development of 31 New Studios
July 10, 2018 // Franchising.com // IRVINE, Calif. - Less than five months after announcing its franchise opportunity, StretchLab, an inclusive, energetic assisted stretching concept, has signed initial franchise agreements to debut studios in Chicago, Austin, Dallas, Seattle, Central New Jersey and Eagle, Idaho. Additional agreements have been signed to significantly expand the brand’s presence throughout its home state of California in Los Angeles, San Diego, and the San Francisco Bay Area. This strategic development of 31 new units launches the StretchLab concept to all four regions of the U.S., making the inclusive wellness concept more accessible to all.
StretchLab introduces people of all ages, fitness levels, genders and sizes to various health and wellness benefits of working one-on-one with highly trained flexologists™ in an open, modern, fun and approachable environment. Although often neglected, deep stretching is not only scientifically proven to effectively decrease pain, lower risk of injury and reduce stress, but it also provides the ability to perform better at work, in the gym and in everyday life. StretchLab strives to help clients increase mobility and flexibility to achieve a deeper, more advanced stretch than one can do on his or her own.
“In today’s busy world, there is a growing trend toward self-care, recovery work and overall wellness. Deep stretching fulfills that desire, allowing all people to fully tackle their days, no matter what’s on the agenda,” said Lou DeFrancisco, President of StretchLab. “These initial franchise agreements greatly expand StretchLab’s presence throughout the country, allowing us to continue to educate consumers on the benefits of including assisted stretching in their health rituals.”
Founded in 2015 in Venice, California to fulfill the vision of creating an affordable assisted stretching concept, StretchLab quickly gained popularity and grew to three studios throughout Southern California. Now backed by Xponential Fitness, a curator of premium boutique fitness brands led by an expert team with more than 25 years of experience in fitness franchising, StretchLab is actively seeking single- and multi-unit franchise partners to increase the brand’s presence across the U.S. with territories available in all 50 states. With first-to-market opportunities available nationwide, StretchLab is a profitable and rewarding franchise investment. Initial single-unit investment fees range from $153,100 to $223,500.
