Snap Fitness Becomes First 5-Star Rated Gym in Australia

Snap Fitness has become the first health and fitness franchise system in the country to achieve a five-star accolade on the Australian Franchise Rating Scale™.

Rated by FRANdata Australia, Snap Fitness was recognised as the highest performing brand after demonstrating an exceptionally high level of transparency and franchise performance following an independent and fact-based assessment within seven key categories.

Australian FRANdata CEO Darryn McAuliffe recognised the strong performance demonstrated at Snap Fitness across the nation and anticipates a heightened interest in the brand as a result.

“The review team was particularly impressed with the internal data collection and reporting capabilities which enabled the effective monitoring of franchise performance and early warning signs where additional support may be warranted,” McAuliffe said. “Snap Fitness also evidenced a strong commitment to the measurement and ongoing monitoring of franchisee satisfaction. These factors coupled with a disciplined recruitment program have contributed strongly to a very low churn rate across the network.”

Snap Fitness CEO Chris Caldwell says it all comes down to collectively implementing innovative methods to stay ahead of the game.

“We are extremely humbled and excited to have been awarded the highest rating possible by FRANdata. Our franchisees and their teams go nothing short of above and beyond to achieve excellence in their clubs, so it is with incredible pride that I say this is a reflection of their hard work,” Caldwell said.

Rating assessment outcomes from the Australian Franchise Rating Scale™ are being delivered now to participating franchise systems and recorded in The Australian Franchise Registry™.
