Crunch Fitness Owner Satisfaction Report:

Franchise Business Review has worked with over 1,100 franchise systems. We independently contact all open and active franchisees and invite them to participate in our satisfaction survey. Only the brands that exceed our satisfaction benchmark are displayed on our website. Crunch Fitness conducted their franchise review in November 2020, and collected feedback from 54% of the active franchisees (20). For brands to be successful, it has to work for both franchisees and the franchisor as they grow. All marks on the survey show the Crunch Fitness team has created a culture of caring and supporting their franchisees. 

Highlights include:

  • 100% of the franchisees “strongly agree” or “agree” the franchisor cares about their success. 
  • 100% of franchisees said franchise owners are supportive of one another
  • 90% of franchisees are likely to recommend the franchise to others, 18% higher than our overall industry benchmark.
