Kieser Training: master franchisees in Australia and New Zealand
Having expanded its system in Germany, Kieser Training shall soon be found on the world’s fifth continent, too. The company has announced that master franchise agreements were signed in August 2005 for both Australia and New Zealand. David Fritz, Business Development Director of Kieser Training AG, said that they were very pleased to have found Gary Harley for their project. They are hoping to open up at least 20 branches in Australia and New Zealand. The first business shall, in all probability, open its doors to the public in Melbourne at the beginning of 2007. Master franchisee, Gary Harley, is convinced that the Swiss training concept is a very good one, “Kieser Training stands out thanks to its radically different products. I am sure that the concept shall prove to be very popular in Australia." Negotiations are also being held for other countries. “There is a great demand for master franchise licences,”
