Recently, Don Powers, Founder & CEO of Fitness Machine Technicians, was featured on 1851franchise.com magazine.
The article addresses why individuals are investing in the franchise system, how Fitness Machine Technicians has managed its fast-paced growth, and what it takes to be a top performing franchisee in a growing franchise system.
Don address the biggest challenge for any franchisor:
The biggest challenge is managing growth. We’re now adding another segment in our inventory. Right now, we’re selling one type of franchise, the executive franchise, but we’re going to be working on something a little less than executive with a smaller territory. We want to scale down and make a smaller version for the lower-level investment population, allowing us to hit more territories and give people more opportunities.
Awarded Franchisor Top Performance award in 2018 and ranked number 5 in all of FranNet, Don plans to continue to provide fitness equipment repair and maintenance throughout the country.
The fitness industry is always growing, and there’s a lot of opportunity for us to grow with it—the nature of equipment means that it’ll need repair.
