Today I am speaking with Shannon Hudson founder and CEO of 9Round. With almost 800 locations open since they began franchising in 2009, 9Round is experiencing rapid growth!
9Round is offers a 30 minute kickbox fitness experience. Shannon says “we are the private jet of fitness” because we provide convenience and results. Private jet, I know that sounds crazy right? 9Round does not have class times, so you are never late to class (which is great if you are always late like me).
Shannon shares his core belief of creating successful franchisees by providing them with a proven system that supports and leads to profitable franchisees. Shannon shares everything from how he got into the business (and yes, credit cards were maxed out initially to get the business off the ground), grew it to what it is today, and how franchisees continue to see growth and profitability in their business. He talks about how 9Round helps people get in shape and tackles obesity as it is a huge issue in America. He shares what 9Round is looking for in potential partners, the investment needed to start a 9Round, and what it takes to be successful.
