Fast-Growing Anytime Fitness Thinks Like a Host


Published:

“Running a successful franchise system is much like being a great party host,” says Chuck Runyon, CEO of Anytime Fitness. “You make sure everyone else eats first and has a good time.”

That’s among the pithy quotes we’re collecting as we report the new Franchise Times Fast and Serious list, which ranks the smartest-growing brands in franchising.

Anytime Fitness is on the list of 40 companies, but we aren’t revealing their numerical order until the story publishes March 1.

Meanwhile, Runyon continues: “As the host, you should always be the last to eat. Franchising is no different.  If the franchisee is happy and profitable, the growth will take care of itself.”
