Start Up Details: What’s needed to open a RowZone®
Take pause as you read to compare our beautifully simple and proven $80K fitness franchise opportunity to others that cost well over $300,000. The fact is, with RowZone you only need approximately 65 to 80 members to cover your operating costs. Our franchisee’s sign up on average around half that number of new members in the first week alone and that’s our goal. A solid base to build your business on.
