Who Makes A Good Franchise Owner?

  • Franchise owners come from all walks of life

    Are you a good fit for Stepz Fitness? Our franchisees come from all sorts of backgrounds, from accountants, personal trainers, stay-at-home moms and experienced franchise owners to bankers, teachers, dental technicians and executives. There is no single background or education level which determines success.

    Stepz Fitness franchise owners have a tendency to fall into the following categories

    • Diversifying entrepreneurs

      These are smart businesspeople who’ve had successful careers owning other businesses. They choose Stepz Fitness for its inspiring corporate mission, strong cash flow, no inventory and ease of operations.

      Again, these are general groups of people we have attracted in the past. If you don’t fit one of these categories, we encourage you to still learn more.

      The internal qualities of a Stepz Fitness franchisee:

    • Corporate leaders, managers and executives

      They may be looking to build an empire or start something now that will generate cash flow during retirement. They may keep their job and start the business on the side. Some leave their careers and select Stepz Fitness as their next growth vehicle. They often choose Stepz Fitness for its simplicity of operations, ability to manage the business by the management information system, scalability, interacting with store leaders and world-class branding.

    • Family businesses

      These owner-operators enjoy seeing the smiles they put on customers’ faces. Often these are husband-and-wife teams or parents and adult children who are looking to make their own mark on the world. Many times a stay-at-home parent is facing an empty nest and determines now it’s their turn to pursue a worthwhile career. Stepz Fitness is a clean, safe, profitable, family-friendly business.

    • Passionate about the brand.

      They live, eat, and drink the “Helping people feel better about themselves through health and fitness” business philosophy. They put member experience above everything else. At Stepz Fitness, we have a saying: “A healthy body feeds a healthy mind.”

    • Passionate about people.

      Stepz Fitness is a “people business.” We’ve designed all our stores to be a fun and motivational place. Stepz Fitness is a “ Fitness club business” second; it’s a “people business” first.

    • Business-minded.

      You do not have to have experience running your own business — many of our franchisees don’t. You should have a good head for numbers and know how to motivate and manage a small team of people.

    • Community-oriented.

      Like any successful business, Stepz Fitness thrives when its owners are constantly giving back to the community where they’re located. We believe Stepz Fitness is “community property,” and anyone touching the brand should be left better off as a result. We believe the brand has 3 stakeholders: the franchisees, the club members and staff and personal trainers of the brand. We are a business that supports its community. Whether it’s donating to charities, working with the local schools or getting involved with churches or Scouts, there are really unlimited ways to make your Stepz Fitness franchise an integral part of the place you live.

    • A team player.

      You must want to be part of something bigger than you. Franchising works because of synergy. For instance, if you decide to move forward as a franchisee, you will be starting with a base of thousands of existing Stepz Fitness members. Many people in the area you choose to do business will have already been to a Stepz Fitness or heard good things about the brand. Our existing franchisees have already primed the pump for your success. If you become a franchisee, you will have an opportunity to pay it forward and prime the pump for the franchisees who comes after you.
