As we’ve written about in the past, Snap Fitness is one of the most innovative fitness franchises on the market.
The extent of the businesses growth became evident recently when the Snap Fitness CEO Ken Taunton was named Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year in the Upper Midwest Region, a multi-state area encompassing Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota and South Dakota. It’s a great achievement for Taunton and a sign of how far the franchise has come.
“We have definitely found a successful business model not only in the fitness club industry, but also the franchising industry,” Taunton said. “We provide flexibility for both our owners and customers and that has resonated very well.”
Snap Fitness is well-established in the fitness franchise market, with units in Canada, Mexico, India, Australia and New Zealand. They ranked #46 on the Franchise Direct Top 100 Global Franchise list for 2010. Entrepreneur have ranked them as their best fitness franchise.
Congratulations to Mr Taunton for turning the franchise into a roaring success. Any entrepreneurs interested in a fitness franchise should look into this business.
