Overview

The Barre Code

Get In Early With One of the Most Rewarding Franchise Concepts to Come Along In Years

Co-founders Ariana Chernin and Jillian Lorenz

About Us

In 2010, Jillian Lorenz and Ariana Chernin turned a New Year’s Eve resolution into a lifelong mission to create and grow a best-in-class fitness program for everybody and every BODY, while promoting personal growth and self-acceptance in an environment where women support one another. The duo wanted to change the mindset of women from trying to lose inches, pant sizes and weight to GAINING confidence, strength and love for the skin you are in. As The Barre Code continues to grow, our vision grows stronger to continue to use fitness as a vehicle to positively impact the lives of individuals worldwide.

As A Franchisee...

The franchisee can take an executive role in the business, hire a manager who runs the day-to-day operations in the studio, or be actively involved in the business day-to-day. The franchisee will know how classes should be taught, but the franchisee's role is not to teach classes. That said, there are some franchisees who do teach occasionally, but that is not the role of the owner.

The role of the owner is to invest dollars in marketing, convert interested prospects to trial, ensure a great culture and workout experience, and drive membership/class pack sales. The owner will also manage money and people. Managers can be hired at each studio to run the day-to-day operations of the studio (creating the schedule, executing plans and promotions, selling memberships, etc), and the owner can manage the manager on a daily basis.

Training and Support

The Barre Code provides exceptional, hands-on support across all business disciplines, including staff training, operations, finance and marketing. Each franchisee will attend initial business training (currently in Chicago, but it may move to Ann Arbor, MI), while instructors will participate in a fusion of both virtual and in-studio training to be certified by The Barre Code.

Access to franchisor personnel doesn’t disappear after initial training. The Barre Code has a dedicated ops team to help with business strategy and day-to-day operations, a dedicated local marketing coordinator for marketing guidance and consultation, and an accessible training team.

Ideal Candidates

The following attributes and qualifications are what we’d consider the “ideal” background of a prospective studio owner (this can be an individual or team ownership):

  • People who love to help and enrich the lives of others
  • Someone with a magnetic, persuasive personality
  • Someone who has guest service experience
  • Active or executive owner
  • Sales experience is great to support The Barre Code 2.0 sales-driven culture
  • If you don’t have sales experience, we love to see at least mid-level management experience (if you’ve owned, run, or managed a business before— it’s a plus)
  • Hotel, restaurant, retail and/or fitness experience is a plus
  • Someone who wants a “sexy” or hot franchise concept
