Blink Holdings, Inc., the New York-based operator of the Blink Fitness brand, announced the formation of Blink Fitness Franchising, Inc. and the launch of a national franchise program.
With 50 company-owned Blink Fitness gyms currently open or in development in the New York metropolitan area, it plans to open more than 300 additional gyms by the end of 2020. Blink Fitness Franchising intends to initially focus on offering franchise opportunities to qualified candidates in target markets in Maryland, portions of New Jersey, Upstate New York, Virginia, Washington D.C. and parts of Long Island.
“Blink’s impressive expansion in just a few years is a true testament to the success of the brand’s Mood Above Muscle philosophy, which differentiates us from other fitness clubs and provides our members with a unique experience,” said Todd Magazine, the executive vice president and general manager of Blink Fitness. “We believe we have perfected our model and are positioned for immense growth. Given our confidence in the concept we are ready to expand our presence beyond the New York metropolitan area. And while we are still dedicated to growing our company-owned business, we’re looking forward to offering franchise opportunities to propel expansion across the U.S.”
Blink Fitness Franchising is seeking single- and multi-unit operators with business, management and/or marketing experience.
Founded in 2011, Blink Fitness is a premium quality, value-based fitness brand with 50 locations open or in development throughout New York and New Jersey. Blink Fitness puts “Mood Above Muscle” by ensuring that each club employs the company’s signature “Feel Good Experience” that highlights enthusiastic staff members, a clean environment, an open, spacious and colorful design, energizing music and fitness training that is motivating and affordable.
