Lowest Price In The Industry For A Non-Franchise Weight Loss and Fitness Business

Q:  Why should I consider the  Banz36 Weight Loss Studio license over a franchise?
There are many reasons, but the two most often are…You have total control of how you run your studio and what advertising you conduct. You will not have someone  standing over your shoulder dictating each move. Probably, the next greatest reason is the financial saving in the beginning and every month for the life of you studio. If you pay a franchise $600.00 per month for five years, you will end up giving them close to $40,000.00 Now ask yourself, would you rather invest the forty thousand in your business / family or give it to a franchise somewhere. If the truth be know about many franchises in this industry, very few have great value after the initial honey moon stage after that you can definitely run the day to day without anyone’s assistance.

Q: DoesBanz36 Fitness and Weight Loss Studio mandate our location?
No. With our system one of the first steps is to find a suitable site. Banz36 Weight Loss Studio can assist you in deciding on the best location for the asking price in your market. Remember the highest price shopping center is not always the best. We prefer to find a good location with more affordable rent and spend the difference in the advertising budget.Q:  What is the term of the license agreement and is there a charge for renewal?
The initial agreement is for three years, thereafter renewable annually. There is a annual fee for renewal of the agreement if you so choose to stay on board. Our goal is to not force anyone into a long term commitment , we’ve heard this from many franchise owners before; “The greatest regret is having signed a franchise contract that locked them in for five to ten years”.

Q: What help and support is given to new licensees?
All licensees receive complete support in all aspects of Banz36  Fitness and Weight Loss Studio operation including recruiting and training employees, marketing, studio management and other operational areas. You will also receive grand opening support from an experienced Banz36 Studio consultant. Once open you are able to receive ongoing support and training from Banz36 plus, unlimited telephone and email support.

Q: What training is offered?
The choice is yours. Either you can choose to have a consultant come out for the standard three day start up session to assist with your opening and hands on training or you can elect to do the Quick Start 100 Program , in which we will partner up with your location to help enroll the critical first 100 members. The choice is yours.

Q: How many staff members are employed in an average Studio?
In an average location a minimum of two to three new jobs are created.

Q:  How long will it take to recoup my initial investment?
This depends on a number of financial variables. For instance rent, staffing costs, general financial management and whether you hire a manager or operate the location yourself. Typically payback can be achieved with 12 months of opening assuming that you are following all the suggested advertising steps and spending enough on advertising to generate interest in your market.

Q: What’s the build out costs of a Banz36 Fitness Studio location after purchasing the start up package?
The  build out cost will vary depending on the area of the country and the level of build out / decorating you choose to do. The least we feel it can be done for is around $10,000.00 and this is for a moderate vanilla shell build out with not many electrical or plumbing changes and floor covering already in place by the landlord or shopping center. The highest is around $30,000.00 plus and this is with major changes and hiring a professional interior designer to assist. Both models will work equally as well, it’s based on your build out budget and creative skills. With Banz36 you can budget and shop around for the best material pricing and competitive bids. Banz36 doesn’t make one penny off your build out and that’s another reason you can save a  tremendous amount with our system.
