9R Awards NFL'er north Charlotte Franchise

Shannon Hudson is pleased to announce the award of 9Round franchise rights to The C.I.N.O Group, owned by Quinton Teal, a former member of the NFL's Carolina Panthers, and currently a free agent, and James Brochu, a football team-mate of his at Coastal Carolina University. James will handle day to day operations and training as Quinton continues his career in the NFL. They joined the 9Round Nation with a near term goal to open 3 gyms in the north Charlotte, NC market.

Says Quinton, "After immense reasearch into many different franchise opportunities, we are excited to be joining the 9Round team. It is an exciting time to join other 9Round franchisees in spreading this great new product and idea to places it has not been. The energy and passion that this company puts towards getting people into shape 9 Rounds at a time is one James and I couldn't pass up."

Shannon Hudson added "Naturally we are very proud to have awarded a franchise to a premier athlete like Quinton as well as his partner James, himself a former college athlete. Most importantly though, we do our best to judge character, business sense and interest in fitness, but most of all people. Quinton and James met our test, and more, and we look forward to many years of success through their leadership and expansion of 9Round Fitness Gyms.
