100 Gyms and Growing “Stronger”: Blink Fitness “Lifts” Past Growth Milestone
It’s official: Blink Fitness (Blink) is today’s breakthrough health and wellness franchise brand. The affordable, premium-quality fitness concept has opened its 100th gym in less than 10 years and is built to thrive for the future.
Since opening its first gym in Manhattan in 2011, Blink Fitness has entered nearly a dozen major metropolitan markets coast-to-coast through sustained franchise and company-owned growth. The brand has celebrated more than 20 openings in the last 12 months, expanding through franchising and company growth into key markets like Chicago, Detroit, Houston and Dallas.
Founded by the world leader in the luxury fitness category, Blink Fitness has differentiated itself in the booming health and wellness segment by offering its gym members a high-quality, affordable and inclusive workout experience where how you feel is more important than how you look.
And, there is immense interest from seasoned franchise groups. This year, Blink Fitness inked multi-unit franchise agreements totaling nearly 50 units in Sacramento, Boston, Nashville and cities throughout Ohio.
Franchisees are especially attracted to the concept’s labor-light model— an unmatched tech-enabled platform streamlines operations and allows for Blink Fitness gyms to operate daily with as few as two employees. Blink Fitness franchisees also benefit from hands-on operational know-how from the brand’s more than 90 company-owned locations open today. Additionally, the scale of the concept’s company-owned footprint allows it to pilot initiatives in various markets, rolling out only proven processes to franchisees.
