Fitness Center - Orange Co. - Great Biz for a Couple
Fountain Valley, CA
This health club is a full service, efficiently managed fitness center catering to women only.
It is located in the heart of a densely populated residential area in Fountain Valley, and borders Huntington Beach and Westminster.
The business was established by the current owners in 1993 and the business thrived. At one time the income generated by the operation was in excess of $500K per annum, but over the years, intense competition from the 'big box' centers and other business models has reduced the cash flowing to the owners to approximately $80,000 per annum.
Nevertheless, with fresh blood, and a concerted approach to marketing, there is definite room to build revenues and profits. Maybe not to the levels of the boom years, but by adding services such as Nutritional and Weight Loss Guidance and Skin Care (as just two examples) steady increases in income can be generated.
This is an ideal opportunity for a young couple who understand the healthy lifestyle, enjoy working with people, and have the energy and savvy to build on the terrific foundation established by the owners who are retiring.
We are seeking an extremely reasonable price of just $175,000 for all the assets of the business with a down-payment of $50,000 (subject to credit verification) and balance over five years. Full training will be offered during a transitory period.

Existing Marketing Business with Immediate Payback Checks
Huntington Beach, CA
This existing franchise has ongoing accounts and cash flow. This is a low cost, extremely fast startup, home-office based franchise where you’re a marketing consultant that provides a turnkey marketing system for neighborhood businesses. The system delivers compelling offers to businesses best prospects on a multi-media platform: Direct Mail, Internet, Mobile Devices and Social Media all for pennies-per household. They provide Madison Avenue marketing for Main Street businesses. 2014 was one of the best years in the history of the franchise (several decades). They just introduced a 2 year training, support and launch program that provides working capital to make your transition-to-ownership easier. Total cost is only $75K and the investor must have an additional $25K in working capital.
The elements of the program include:
- NO ROYALTIES for the first 2 years!
- Monthly performance based REBATE CHECKS TO YOU!
- 100% of Working Capital Expenses are paid for the first 6 cycles
- Working Capital is subsidized on each cycle for cycles 7-22
- Access to National Accounts (e.g. Welcome Wagon)
- 25% VetFran Discount if you qualify
Why make such a lucrative offer? Royalties and franchise sales are not a profit center for the franchise. Their profits are driven by ad sales and national account sales which are revenue shared with franchisees like you.
BUT, I thought direct mail was on the way out?
Direct mail is still the second largest advertising category outside of TV. 80% of customers report using coupons regularly! This is a turnkey marketing system. Direct mail on only one component. It remains critical because it’s the most measureable, cost effective way for neighborhood businesses to reach consumers that live in a 3-5 mile radius of their location. It’s also the ONLY non-invasive “push” advertising media that can deliver a targeted message to consumers at home during the “mail moment”. It reaches them before a purchase decision is made and creates demand! Digital gets a lot of buzz but most consumers don’t want random offers pushed out to their inboxes and smart phones. Most consumers find banner ads invasive and are tired of the daily digital dump. Much of the growth in digital ad spend comes from declines in spending on the old search engines, yellow pages and newspapers. Companies that rely on exclusively selling digital advertising to local businesses (like Groupon) have suffered severe financial setbacks while this franchise continues to generate record results with their integrated media approach.
BUT, I’m not a sales person and I hate cold calling.
This is a consultative, relationship-driven business, not a one-call close transaction. Over 1/3 of our franchisees had no prior sales experience. Franchisees acquire clients using our proven lead generation programs and a technology-driven, consultative canvassing and prospecting system taught to you during training. This system incorporates robust marketing data, proprietary software and a question based process to position new franchisees as local market experts. Success comes through providing clients with value that generates monthly repeat business.
