Lucille Roberts, Fitness for Women, to extend its franchise network
According to a report published on the website, marketwatch.com, Lucille Roberts, a pioneer of women's health clubs with nearly 50 company-owned clubs in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, has signed an agreement with Jerry Cohn and David Tannen to develop 50 plus health club franchises throughout Florida and Georgia.
Cohn and Tannen are intending to rapidly expand the Lucille Roberts brand in the region and they are, the report reveals, currently seeking entrepreneurs to invest in or own new Lucille Roberts franchised locations.
In an interview, Kevin Roberts, president of Lucille Roberts Health Clubs Franchising, Inc, said, “Florida and Georgia are priority growth markets for Lucille Roberts, and we're excited to expand the brand's footprint beyond the northeast for the first time in the company's more than 40 year history. Backed by our experienced franchising experts and one-of-a-kind approach to women's fitness, Lucille Roberts is uniquely positioned to capitalize on a growing demand currently not being met in these markets.” (kbp)
