HOTWORX welcomes new franchisees, Jeremy and Leslie Barnes, who were awarded 3 franchise licenses in Cleveland, Ohio!
What originally motivated you to consider a business opportunity?
We decided a few years ago that we had the background and experience needed to run our own business.What led you to explore franchising rather than an independent business?
We were not ready to leave our careers, so we liked the idea of finding an opportunity that we believed in and that had all of the minutia. Starting from complete scratch felt like too much to handle.What was your initial impression of your first HOTWORX session?We love working out in heat. It felt awesome.How was your experience going through the HOTWORX Discovery Process?Excellent, Cynthia was an excellent communicator and answered all of our questions promptly.How would you describe your Orientation Day and meeting the HOTWORX Executive Team?It was very informative; it would have been better in person but we were limited to a virtual Orientation Day due to covid.What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs considering the opportunity to franchise with HOTWORX?Call as many existing franchisees as you can to learn about the pros and cons of the business.What are the top 3 reasons you chose to franchise with HOTWORX?1. We believe strongly in the product.
2. It is unique.
3. The financials were solid.What excites you the most in offering HOTWORX to your community?In Cleveland, OH the winters can be brutal, so giving people an opportunity to get out of the cold and into a nice hot sauna to workout and detox is a one of a kind offering I think people around here will love.What goals do you plan to accomplish in your first year as a HOTWORX franchisee?Hoping to sign a lease in the next couple weeks!
How will HOTWORX help you achieve your personal and professional goals?Personally we hope to get into better health by using the studio ourselves, and professionally we hope to be profitable and therefore more financially secure.
