What is the perfect location size for a 9Round Franchise?

1000-1500 square ft. of retail space is just right. We like to keep our businesses lean, mean, and a profit machine. Also, a smaller space is more intimate, and you can give every client a personal touch.


Is 9Round listed on the Small Business Administration Franchise Registry?

Yes, we are, and this is a very valuable benefit in seeking financing to open your 9Round gym. The SBA Franchise Registry is a prestigious national online listing of approved franchise systems whose franchisees and existing franchisees receive accelerated loan processing through your lender and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). This is a tool that lenders use for expediting your loan requests. This is a rigorous process that 9Round went through to bring value to you in financing your 9Round and to show our commitment to supporting your success. Banks that provided SBA financing use this service as a form of "reference check," and this saves you tremendous amounts of time in waiting for financing decisions. Also, the 9Round candidate or existing franchisee is provided with higher levels of service and quicker loans. Franchise systems not listed on the site are not eligible for expedited loan processing through the SBA.


What is the ongoing royalty fee?

$449 per month-A fixed flat royalty helps a club owner know exactly what the expenses will be.
