Most people in real estate abide by the adage that the three most important things in real estate are “location, location, location.” At Stepz Fitness, we agree that the location is very important as well. We carefully select our sites to make sure our franchisees are in the best possible situation to attract a lot of members. One of the reasons our clubs perform so well is because we’re really careful about site selection.
New franchisees have a lot of things to think about in launching their new business; location shouldn’t be one of them. Good locations come and go quickly, so Stepz Fitness works with a team of professional commercial real estate agents around the country who understand our business and can help us get into quality locations and shopping centers at affordable rents.
The ideal location for a successful Stepz Fitness club is a vibrant retail shopping center with high visibility and good parking that’s easy to get in and out of. It will have a good tenant mix — think national grocery chain, good exposure — and it will be situated in a strong residential community.
Landlords who own these shopping centers want brand names they can trust. Stepz Fitness has established contacts with many of these landlords and professional tenant representatives. Once a franchise candidate signs a franchise agreement, they will work with real estate professionals to find the perfect location to assure their success.
Each new Stepz Fitness franchisee receives assistance with the entire site selection process, including:
