Why You May Want to Start a Burn Boot Camp Franchise

Burn Boot Camp is a relatively young franchise. However, it has grown at an impressive rate, with more than 70,000 clients. With the sale of memberships and various add-on services, the automatic diversification of revenue may offer a better chance of customer conversion and long-term loyalty.

To be part of the Burn Boot Camp team, you should make sure you're financially ready for an initial investment made up of a franchise fee and other startup costs. Additionally, ongoing fees should be prepared for and considered. These fees will include advertising, royalty, or renewal fees. Franchisees will also need to meet the company's set net worth and liquid capital requirements. 

What Might Make a Burn Boot Camp a Good Choice? 

Burn Boot Camp focuses on more than the bottom line. The franchise partners with the Muscular Dystrophy Association every year for an event called Be Their Muscle. The month before, Burn Boot Camp holds a nationwide fundraiser for Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Burn Boot Camp gives back to the community by holding two different events to help franchisees. Every year, company headquarters has a three-day summit in Cornelius, North Carolina. The event is built to motivate, educate, and recognize the most impactful franchisees, trainers, and teams of the year. 

Burn Boot Camp also has a fire club trip consisting of the franchisees whose locations meet an annual revenue threshold and experience continual growth. Both events help to develop a sense of community amongst franchisees and the company.
