How much money do I need to open a barre3 studio?
The costs associated with opening a barre3 studio vary from market to market, but the range is estimated to be between $284,157 to $573,620. This is based on the diversity of our studios’ markets—we have opened in metropolitan markets like New York City and Washington, DC as well as smaller communities like Fayetteville, Arkansas and Boise, Idaho.
Is barre3 listed on the SBA franchise registry?
Yes! Barre3 works closely with Wells Fargo Bank and the Small Business Association. Qualified candidates can take advantage of our financing program designed with the barre3 business model in mind. We also have alternative financing options available via Guidant Financial's 401k rollover plan.
What kind of training can I expect as a franchisee?
From the moment you sign your franchise agreement, our team is working to coach you on everything from teaching barre3 classes and running your business to leading a balanced life as a studio owner. Our training is on-going, you’re never alone in this process.
Do I need to be an instructor before becoming an owner?
No. While being a barre3 instructor is an advantage, it is not required in order to pursue barre3 ownership.
I have never done barre3. Am I still qualified?
A passion for barre3 is one of the most important things we look for in franchise candidates. If you’ve never taken a class (in-studio or online), consider this your first step! Our classes are the foundation of our business.
How long does it take to open a studio?
It typically takes about 6–12 months from signing a franchise agreement to opening your studio doors.
I already have a barre3 in my area. Can I still open my own studio here?
Most markets can support multiple barre3 studios. We have a robust modeling system that analyzes each market to determine viable territories.
I have never owned a business before. Am I still qualified?
Yes! Many of our current owners have never owned a business before.
Am I able to keep my current job and own a barre3 studio?
No. We are looking for people who can dive in 100%. We work with you on developing a phase-out process that makes sense for your situation.
Does barre3 franchise internationally?
At this time, we are currently focusing our franchise efforts in the US and Canada.
