1851 Franchise Magazine: Franchisee Voices: Josh Grinstead of GYMGUYZ

New franchisee Josh Grinstead chooses GYMGUYZ to start his own business. 


Tell us a little bit about your background.

I’ve been working in private education for the last 15 years, managing a number of schools throughout New York and New Jersey. I’ve had a lot of success managing multi-million dollar campuses, but it was time to branch off independently. I’ve been running businesses for other people for the last 10 years and I will succeed on my own. To that end, franchising was a perfect option; it gives me the right level of support with the right level of freedom.

Why did you choose to become a franchisee with GYMGUYZ
I was looking at a lot of standard franchising options: senior care, some consulting businesses and even auto care. GYMGUYZ was a much better match for me in terms of interest and growth opportunities. I have always stressed the importance of health and wellness and wanted something I could scale. GYMGUYZ provides a service that no one else is offering. The growth possibilities are boundless.
