Curves International named 2009 Franchisor of the Year

According to a report published by the Internet website,, the American Association of Franchisee and Dealers (AAFD) has named Curves International, Inc., as AAFD’s Franchisor of the Year for 2009.
Robert Purvin, AAFD Chairman, said that one of the main reasons for awarding Curves with this title was the network’s exemplary franchise culture: “Curves management has encouraged and supported the organization of an independent franchisee association, including a willingness to engage the association’s elected leadership.”

CEO of Curves, Gary Heavin, is quoted as saying: “We have always made every effort to work hand in hand with our franchisees – as partners and as friends. The CFA is an indispensable resource, providing invaluable feedback that allows us to serve our franchisees at a higher level. I am pleased to accept this award in recognition of the collaborative efforts of our corporate employees, our franchisees and the CFA.”

Gary and Diane Heavin opened their first Curves business in 1992 and began franchising their concept in 1995. Headquartered in Waco, Texas, Curves International has become one of the world’s largest fitness networks with nearly 10,000 franchisee-owned fitness clubs serving four million women worldwide.
