HOTWORX congratulates franchisees, Melannie and Michael Rhoad, who were awarded a franchise license in the Norfolk-Portsmouth-Newport News market and recently opened their Chesapeake, VA (Greenbrier) studio!
What originally motivated you to consider a business opportunity?
I have a personal pursuit to be the healthiest version of me, especially since being diagnosed with cardio vascular irregularities. I am also quickly approaching my 50s, so I've become very aware that health needs to stay a top priority in my life. Additionally, I'm a very business-minded individual so this opportunity seemed like a tailor-made opportunity for me.
What led you to explore franchising rather than an independent business?
I didn't get attracted by the "franchise" structure. I was hooked by the product and the uniqueness of this fitness solution.
What was your initial impression of your first HOTWORX session?
Hot. Challenging. Unique.
How was your experience going through the HOTWORX Discovery Process?
The Discovery Process was informative and organized.
How would you describe your Orientation Day and meeting the HOTWORX Executive Team?
It was a great experience. It was very clear that the company is very organized and functions largely on a proven process. The meeting felt like I was being introduced to a well-oiled machine of a franchise company.
What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs considering the opportunity to franchise with HOTWORX?
Go through the Discovery Process. You'll know by the end whether you will be a good fit or not.
What are the top 3 reasons you chose to franchise with HOTWORX?
1. Unique selling proposition
2. Proven process (for profitability)
3. Franchisor support & culture
What excites you the most in offering HOTWORX to your community?
Bringing a life-changing solution to many people's health problems.
What goals do you plan to accomplish in your first year as a HOTWORX franchisee?
Being the top producing studio in my DMA with stellar customer service.
How will HOTWORX help you achieve your personal and professional goals?
That remains to be seen, but I believe based upon what I've seen so far out of the HOTWORX franchise, I assume the franchise will be coaching me towards success every step of the way.
