The Successful Growth of 9Round

Helen Bush

9Round started in 2008. In the years after its founding, it has seen rapid growth. In 2009 9Round began franchising. Then in 2013, while partnering with Snap Fitness, they were able to grow their locations from just thirty seven open country wide to an impressive one hundred locations. Also in 2013 9Round was honored with a spot in Entrepreneur Magazine's “Top 500 Franchises List.” 9Round was delighted to come in at number 443 on their “Top 500 Franchises List.” Then in the beginning of 2014 9Round officially opened their 100th location in Middleton, CT. The recent growth spurt gave 9Round a boost in Entrepreneur Magazine's “Top 500 Franchises List,” moving it up 141 spots to land at number 302.

    According to the founder and CEO of 9Round Shannon Hudson the company is just now gaining momentum. He only expects more and more growth in the future. Hudson has immense faith in his brand and feels that the number of gyms opening across the country only goes to prove that the public also shares in his faith. He looks forward to not only growing the number of clubs across the country but is also planning to expand worldwide. He has plans to expand their franchises into Canada, Mexico, Australia, Europe and Asia. Hudson wants to achieve his dream of becoming a known worldwide brand name and sees it within his reach. He does not expect the growth of 9Round to slow anytime soon but to keep building. He admits that a lot of their growth has been accelerated through their partnership with Snap Fitness, which has over 1400 locations. They can give 9Round a lot of extra added horsepower to their growth spurt.
