9Round set to open new studios in Vietnam and Indonesia

The kickboxing fitness franchise has finalized plans with its master franchisees to open 49 locations

9Round has announced the finalization of its development plans across Vietnam and Indonesia. Hyun Soo Lee, the Vietnamese master franchisee, is working on the first location, set to open in Thao Dien, Ho Chi Minh City in February 2022. Idham Switriadji, Indonesia’s master franchisee, has already opened the brand’s first location in the country in Jakarta in January 2022.  

Over the next seven years, Indonesia will open 25 locations, and 24 in Vietnam. 

We are excited to continue expanding our business around the world, with state-of-the-art facilities opening in Indonesia and Vietnam in 2022,” said Shannon Hudson, founder and CEO of 9Round. 

“Based on what we’ve already seen across this continent, we expect 9Round will be the perfect fit for both countries due to its appeal to customers, small real estate footprint, efficient business model and proven international scalability.” 

As per the agreement signed between the brand and master franchisee, 25 new 9Round locations will spring up across the country over the next seven years. The developer has already begun to receive inquiries in the areas of Bali and Balikpapan after the success of the Jakarta location. 

“I was looking for a mixed martial arts gym to round out our portfolio and tried several of them,” said Idham Switriadji, Indonesia master franchisee.  

“9Round really stood out because of its timing, short workout time and all of the great benefits. Jakarta is home to a variety of commercial ventures and lifestyle businesses, making it an ideal location to introduce such a unique fitness outlet to the community.” 

9Round has secured agreements for future expansion in four further countries: Oman, Egypt, South Korea and Panama. 

“As we continue to grow the brand’s presence, it’s only a matter of time before people in all corners of the world can access 9Round to become stronger, both mentally and physically, in just 30 minutes,” said Hudson.
