Leading fitness concept Anytime Fitness will spearhead a new franchise drive with a thrust into upstate New York. The next 12 months will see locations opening in Rochester and Newburgh and another 8 locations are in development. The Empire Stare is already home to 20 Anytime Fitness gyms. Also targeted for development are Albany, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and Yonkers.
Tom Gilles, Vice President of Franchise Development said, “We’re looking to grow where we can make a difference in people’s lives, and there is immense potential throughout New York to do just that. With proof of concept in the region and a neighborhood-focused culture that resonates perfectly with the supportive atmosphere of our gyms, we’re poised for explosive growth in the state.”
Chuck Runyon, co-founder and CEO of Anytime Fitness added, “We’re not looking to simply grow a franchise brand – we’re looking to grow and help individuals reach their specific goals and achieve a healthy, happy lifestyle. We’re searching for local entrepreneurs who share our passion for building relationships and helping others so that we can achieve that vision in communities across the state.”
