|Brickhouse Cardio Club marks third anniversary
Brickhouse Cardio Club, a Charleston-based business, is celebrating its third-year anniversary as the fitness studio franchise continues its rapid growth throughout the country.
Brickhouse Cardio Club has opened studios in 20 states, including West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, North Carolina, Ohio, Washington, Rhode Island, Florida, Mississippi, New Jersey, Kansas, South Carolina, New York, Georgia, Indiana and California. It recently announced its expansion into Canada and plans even more overseas expansions.
The club began with a single studio in Cross Lanes and has grown to more than 60 fitness studios nationwide.
As they prepare for their third anniversary, the owners of Brickhouse Cardio Club reflected on the last three years of business and how they have grown from one single studio in a small town in West Virginia to the successful, rapidly growing national franchise they are today.
"We are extremely proud of what Brickhouse Cardio Club has become in the last three years," Franchise Founder and CEO Vic Sprouse said. "We have taken this idea and have made it into a growing franchise that is providing opportunities to entrepreneurs to live out their dreams of being a business owner."
Brickhouse Cardio Club continues its rapid expansion across the country with a goal of 30 states by the end of 2014.
"Running a fitness facility isn't just about fitness. It's about each member's entire experience from that initial call or walk-in to seeing them all the way through to meet and exceed the goals they have set out to reach," Co-Owner Misti Janey added. "This is one of the main things we teach our franchisees during their initial training and why we believe, as long as they always keep that in mind, they are successful in their franchise."
