HOTWORX congratulates franchisees, Christine and William Buczek, who were awarded a franchise license in the Dallas-Fort Worth market and recently opened their Euless, TX (N Industrial Blvd.) studio!
What originally motivated you to consider a business opportunity?
Will comes from a background as an engineer in the energy solutions industry; Christine has worked in marketing, restaurant management, HR, catering, and special events. While we are fine where we're at, we are creatives at heart. We would love to have more freedom in following our passions, so we keep an open mind for opportunities that would lead us to those goals.
What led you to explore franchising rather than an independent business?
Our love for froyo led us to operate a sweetFrog Premium Frozen Yogurt mobile truck franchise. We didn't think we would consider owning other franchises but did so when we fell in love with the HOTWORX brand and business model. Opening another franchise would be a step towards our goals.
What was your initial impression of your first HOTWORX session?
My (Christine's) initial impression was "WOW, it's HOT in here!" I ended up a sweaty mess, but I loved it and I wanted more of it.
How was your experience going through the HOTWORX Discovery Process?
Our experience in the Discovery Process was game changing. Kudos to Patty because she held our hands through it all.
How would you describe your Orientation Day and meeting the HOTWORX Executive Team?
It was surreal to visit with all the department heads at Orientation Day. Even though the meeting was through Zoom, we could see and share in the passion everyone had for HOTWORX. It was so welcoming, we already felt like part of the family.
What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs considering the opportunity to franchise with HOTWORX?
The HOTWORX business model is attractive all-around. Take a chance and don't let the opportunity slip by.
What are the top 3 reasons you chose to franchise with HOTWORX?
It was hard to pick three, and these are in no particular order:
1. The ability to provide 24-hour infrared fitness to patrons without burnout
2. Proven systems and business model
3. Support system invested in the success of their franchisees
What excites you the most in offering HOTWORX to your community?
We are ready to bring HOTWORX to an underserved area in the Mid Cities of Dallas/Fort Worth.
What goals do you plan to accomplish in your first year as a HOTWORX franchisee?
We want our community to be invested in improving their health with hot exercise!
How will HOTWORX help you achieve your personal and professional goals?
We want to gain independence with our schedules so we can work with purpose and passion as we expand our portfolio.
