9Round Enters 20th Country Just in Time for 2020
We’re proud to announce that with the latest international 9Round club opening, our brand is now represented in 20 different countries. Just before the New Year, we celebrated the first grand opening in Spain, where the country’s inaugural 9Round studio is now up and running in Barcelona.
“Along with our minority partner, Lift Brands, the organization that is leading 9Round development across Europe, we eagerly awaited the introduction of our fitness model to the people of Spain,” said 9Round founder and CEO Shannon Hudson. “9Round’s successful opening in Barcelona last month was the ‘cherry on top’ to an incredibly impressive year overall for our brand, and we are excited to kick off 2020 with presence in 20 international markets.”
In addition to adding one more country to the list, we were able to celebrate 104 openings during 2019, with 31 of these openings occurring outside of the United States and Canada. Not only did we celebrate the opening of the first 9Round location in Spain, but also our first 9Round club openings in Singapore, Guatemala, Ecuador, and Northern Ireland as well.
Along with the international openings mentioned above, we were also able to successfully finalize agreements for future clubs domestically, as well as internationally in Colombia, Qatar, Indonesia, and Vietnam. The international agreements include an outlined plan to open the territories’ first studios before the end of 2020.
“Ending this past year on the high note of expanding our international roster to 20 countries worldwide marks a special milestone for our brand, setting the tone for what we anticipate will be another remarkable year of growth in 2020,” said Hudson. “We have big plans in store for the brand this year, and I look forward to implementing those and identifying new ways we can excel in the coming months.”
