9Round Franchising, LLC registered to franchise in California in late 2012 and granted its first franchise in the state early December, 2012. The franchise was awarded to John Stratton who will open his 9Round Fitness Center in the Minifee-Temecula area in far southern California.
Said Shannon Hudson, Founder and CEO, “This is a historic step for us. We now have franchise owners from California to Connecticut and Minnesota to Texas. Our momentum has accelerated dramatically in 2012 and we are looking forward to even a faster pace in 2013.”
Shannon has this to say about John, “We are thrilled to award John Stratton our first 9Round Franchise in the great state of California. One of John’s motivations in his life is raising his 8 year old son. This really hit home with me as we interviewed him because I have a 5 year old little boy myself. His priorities are right and owning a 9Round Fitness center is a great thing for a kid to grow up around. 9Round is heading West!”
In our tradition of letting the new 9Round franchise owner tell their own story about why they signed with 9Round, here is what John has to say:
“I am a single father of an eight year old boy that thrives for attention. I have a J.O.B. that takes a great deal of my time, time not spent with my son.
I decided it was time to work for myself and gain more personal time. I started looking at gym and coffee house franchises, nothing appeared equitable for the up front fee’s required. I finally was shown 9Round and immediately knew this was my future.
After Discovery day, meeting Shannon, Tom, and Drew, there is no doubt this is the right decision for me. I am excited to bring the first 9Round to California and look forward to opening many more.”
