HOTWORX welcomes new franchisees, Gary and Deena Sivyer, who were awarded 3 franchise licenses in Minneapolis, Minnesota!
What originally motivated you to consider a business opportunity?
We are currently restaurant owners and were looking to diversify our portfolio. HOTWORX seemed like a good match with its rave reviews and our passion for health and fitness.
What led you to explore franchising rather than an independent business?
Since we already own our own business, we understand the knowledge needed to do so. It just makes sense to use someone else's blue print when venturing into a business we have little experience with.
What was your initial impression of your first HOTWORX session?
We've never actually stepped foot into a HOTWORX! There are no locations open in MN as of yet. Our plans to visit a location in New Orleans were postponed due to Covid. We are eagerly anticipating our first experience!
How was your experience going through the HOTWORX Discovery Process?
The HOTWORX Discovery Process left us excited for more.
How would you describe your Orientation Day and meeting the HOTWORX Executive Team?
We enjoyed Orientation Day. It was very informative. It would have been nice to meet everyone in person, but it was done well considering the circumstances.
What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs considering the opportunity to franchise with HOTWORX?
Ask a lot of questions, especially on the items that are making you uncomfortable or uneasy when considering owning a franchise. Be open to going through the process and learning about the support and information given to the Franchisees. Keep a progress report on the positives and negatives. As you move along in the Discovery you will see the items in the negative column diminish.
What are the top 3 reasons you chose to franchise with HOTWORX?
1. There are none in our area
2. Very few employees
3. Lower start up cost
What excites you the most in offering HOTWORX to your community?
We're excited to offer this to our community because we believe in it. We love the quick effective workouts combined with all the benefits of infrared. We know our community will benefit from the 3D approach to fitness.
What goals do you plan to accomplish in your first year as a HOTWORX franchisee?
Our first year goals are to hit 1,000 members club and also be able to personally reap the health benefits from working out at a HOTWORX.
How will HOTWORX help you achieve your personal and professional goals?
HOTWORX will help our personal goal of health, wellness, and fitness, as well as add a new dimension to our business investments.
Congratulations, Gary & Deena, and welcome to the HOTWORX team!
