Pre-opening Support: We offer more than 200 hours of training prior to your grand opening. Training includes both off-site (corporate headquarters) and on-site (your studio) instruction. Training covers business finance basics, marketing, branding, technology, operations and strategy.

Ongoing Training: Once your studio is up and running, we provide marketing materials and promotions each month of the year. Additionally, corporate headquarters hosts marketing conference calls, business strategy calls, system status calls and training webinars each month. Cloud-based operation manuals and real-time reporting makes it easy to get the information you need, on any device, wherever you have an internet connection.

Your Partner in Success: We want to assist you in meeting your personal financial goals, and our headquarters team are proven leaders in their areas of expertise: marketing, franchise operations, product sourcing, technology, finance and business.
