For many business owners in the post-pandemic world, surviving 2020 was enough. But BODYBAR has put the pedal to the metal and is continuing to grow at a rapid rate by partnering with talented entrepreneurs who are interested in starting a fitness business. 

“The beginning of the year was still a time of uncertainty for everyone, but we took it as an opportunity to hit the ground running, putting our foot on the gas of BODYBAR’s franchise growth strategy. With two new studios opened and several more in the pipeline, we’re eager to keep up the momentum through the end of the year,” said Matt McCollum, CEO of BODYBAR Pilates.

Nationwide Expansion

With recent openings in Keller, Texas, and Alpharetta, Georgia, we’re quickly expanding across the nation. Multiple agreements have been signed to continue the growth into Atlanta, Boston, Utah, Texas, Kansas, Florida, and more. Additionally, we recently signed a record-setting agreement with franchisees Vivek and Jyoti Bhatia who will be opening studios in 4 different territories: Roanoke, TX; Flower Mound, TX; Nashville; and Orlando. 

As a boutique fitness franchise, goals are important to us, both personally and professionally. Bringing health to body and mind is important, and with BODYBAR, franchisees are set up for success. We remain on target to hit 25 new agreements and 50 new units by the end of 2021. 

Proven Systems

As we continue to focus on our mission of transforming bodies and lives across the United States, we’re keeping the brand’s growth at the forefront of our decisions. We are seeking qualified franchise prospects eager to help fuel the growth of an emerging health and fitness franchise. Ideal BODYBAR franchisees include entrepreneurs who have an interest in fitness and a pioneer mindset. They must see BODYBAR as an investment opportunity and recognize that investing in a smaller footprint means they can own a larger piece of the market. 

With an anticipated profit margin of 30% and a return on investment in less than three years, BODYBAR provides a solid business model. In addition, we provide franchisees with comprehensive opening training and support and ongoing guidance to ensure the continued success of their business.
