Rumble franchising doesn't offer in-house financing for candidates but does maintain relationships with several third-party funding sources which offer financing to cover the franchise fee, startup costs, equipment, inventory, accounts receivable and payroll. As a semi-absentee/executive franchise ownership model, Rumble franchises are ideal for candidates of any background that qualify financially. Rumble is looking for franchise owners with basic business skills that can manage and motivate a team.

Why you should own a Rumble franchise

One of the brand's core beliefs is the idea that how you fight is how you live. We all have things we're fighting for in this life, and Rumble is an opportunity to meet these challenges. As a brand, Rumble understands that everyone needs courage, determination, focus and stamina. These are the skills they aim to develop because that's what it truly means to be a fighter.

This is group fitness for the individual. Rumble believes in the power of coming together to fight for a collective goal, but the brand also celebrates what it means to be unique. Rumble was created to shake up the stale norms of the group fitness world and remains committed to its authentic franchise concept.

As the hottest boxing brand in the boutique fitness segment, as well as being part of the Xponential Fitness family of brands, Rumble boxing franchise can leverage an educated market with existing awareness and nationwide demand. In doing so, the brand is providing a sound business opportunity where entrepreneurs can enjoy an outstanding margin business that's ultra-simple to operate.

Rumble is extremely unique in that they offer two franchise ownership models — executive and semi-absentee. No matter which franchise opportunity option owners choose, there's no need for specialized licensed employees as the brand takes certified group training instructors through its patented Bootcamp Bridge training program. Ideal Rumble instructors are performers who can take control of a class but also easily be taught the concepts of boxing if they don't have specific prior experience. Thus, the instructor labor pool is a vast network where spin, yoga, pilates, HIIT or even existing personal trainers can supplement income with Rumble. It's a natural fit to become a Rumble instructor because they already understand kinesiology, anatomy and fitness.

Comprehensive training and extensive, ongoing support are pivotal for your success as a Rumble franchise owner. Here are just a few of the ways Rumble supports its new franchise owners.

  • Real estate: The brand's expert team will guide you through the entire process, from site selection to lease execution, locating the ideal site for your Rumble studio.
  • Construction and design: Let the brand help you navigate through the entire buildout process — from approved layout and general construction to interior design, music and technology. Once completed, the brand leaves you with a curated, multi-sensory, immersive studio with incredible lighting and sound systems.
  • Sales: Enjoy comprehensive and ongoing sales training, monthly calls and expert guidance from pre-sale, through grand opening, and on to sustainability.
  • Recruitment: The quality of the trainer defines a class. Rumble assists in hiring the most qualified trainers, general managers and sales teams.
  • Marketing: The minute you execute your LOI, the marketing of your studio begins with personalized support to ensure you generate maximum leads right away.
