Curves can boast of having the largest fitness franchise over the globe. It operates at more than 9000 locations with clubs in Europe, South America, United States, New Zealand, Canada, Australia, Caribbean and Mexico. The expansion is further on the way with the objective of forming clubs elsewhere in the world as well. It has exclusively worked for women.
Things have not come smooth to the founders of Curves. Gary Heavin and his wife had to toil hard to establish first Curves in Harlingen, Texas. This new concept started in 1992 had a remarkable 30-minute fitness program that guaranteed weight-loss guidance and strength training in a congenial environment specially designed from the prospective of women.
Earlier also he was involved in health programs and took over a health club in Houston, Texas and through sheer hard work put it in a great shape. With its success began building of a chain of fitness centers operating in over 17 locations. Misfortune gripped him at this time and he had to lose everything suddenly. Undeterred by failures Garry and his wife took up the work again and made excellent progress in the name of Curves. In 1995, it started its first franchise operation and since then there is no looking back.
The approach of the organization is methodical and you have to undergo complete training to take up a franchise operation. The training program is of five days and you can access different ideas to make your service better through the suggestions available on the website’s franchisee pages. Everything constituting from start up support to sales promotion gets equal emphasis during the training.
Currently the company has to deal with many legal issues that are a matter of concern. According to the data revealed by the U.S. Department of Commerce, 82% of the businesses operating independently have received a set back while about 90% of franchise businesses are thriving well even after 10 years. This figure instills a positive environment for franchise businesses.
