Snap Fitness named No. 1 fitness franchise

Snap Fitness, one of the world's fastest-growing franchisors of 24/7 express fitness centers, has announced that it has been ranked in numerous listings on the 2009 compilation of Entrepreneur magazine's Franchise 500®, including the No. 1 ranking in the fitness category.

Snap Fitness began franchising in 2004 and since then has developed into a network of almost 1,700 locations worldwide. According to the information provided, it is this rapid and strategic growth, that has led to it being given the following rankings by the Entrepreneur magazine: No. 2 on Top New Franchises for 2009, No. 5 on Fastest Growing Franchises, No. 24 on the Franchise 500® and No. 23 on America's Top Global Franchises which, the company says, reflects its aggressive expansion into Canada and initial openings in India.

Peter Taunton, Snap Fitness CEO and founder, commented, “The Entrepreneur rankings are both humbling and gratifying. When we launched Snap Fitness, we knew we were on to something that would revolutionize the industry and offer consumers a more affordable and convenient solution to meet their fitness needs. By continuing to put our members and franchise owners first, we will continue to reach for new heights and set new standards in fitness and franchising.”

Snap Fitness has been opening up between 300 and 400 new clubs every year and is, it says, seeking single and multi-unit franchise owners to open new fitness centers in strategic markets in the United States and Canada as well as in Australia, India and Mexico. (kbp)
