Atlanta-based health and wellness franchise Workout Anytime has opened its 100th gym last week, according to a company announcement.
Franchise industry veterans Trey and Tracey Hornsby opened the 100th location of the 24-hour, seven-days-a-week fitness concept in Bardstown, Kentucky, on August 25. Workout Anytime has signed 20 new franchise partners since January and has opened an average of one new gym every week so far this year, according to the company, which was founded by John Quattrocchi and Steve Strickland.
"Everything we do on the corporate level is to point our franchisees in the right direction," CEO Mark de Gorter said in the announcement.
The 10-year-old company has grown six-fold since 2011, according to the company. The growth was bolstered by being a location in the Jennifer Aniston film "Mother's Day." A character played by Jason Sudeikis was an Anytime franchisee, and Aniston’s character was a member.
The brand also partners with Lift for the 22, an organization that combats the epidemic of veteran suicide by offering free or reduced memberships for former military.
De Gorter credits a “strong and committed network of franchise partners” with supporting an increasing number of potential customers and franchisees around the country.
