Lift Brands Continues Global Growth Initiative with Snap and 9Round
Company Adds Senior Vice President of Worldwide Franchise Development
Lift Brands, the largest health and wellness franchise company in the world, recently announced plans to increase its international franchise footprint in 2014 and beyond. Hiring Scott Schubiger as Senior Vice President of Worldwide Franchise Development, Schubiger will lead both the domestic and global expansion efforts.
“Lift Brands is focused on growing our family of brands around the world, especially the Snap Fitness 24/7 and 9Round brands, and we’re aggressively looking to attract new master franchisees who can operate a high number of clubs simultaneously around the world,” said Peter Taunton, founder and CEO of Lift Brands. Snap Fitness currently has more than 2,000 clubs already open and operating in 15 countries and has master agreements signed in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Egypt and Mexico. In addition, Snap recently acquired a significant investment stake in 9Round, a rapidly expanding kickboxing franchise that grew from 30 clubs to more than 100 in 2013, with an additional 200 openings planned for 2014. International expansion for 9Round is planned for Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and Canada in 2014.
In February 2014, Lift Brands was introduced as a parent company to a family of fitness-focused brands, which includes Snap Fitness, 9Round, Fitness on Demand, STEELE 365 and Kosama.
