The client contacted SCORE in early 2014 to get assistance in writing a business plan to open a wellness studio. At that time the client had a small base of clients and was cost-sharing space with another personal trainer. Originally, the client was looking at raw space and a build out once an opportunity presented itself. She then received an offer to purchase an existing studio.
SCORE guided the client through the business planning process and ultimately assisted in the purchase of the studio. The assistance from SCORE saved the client money and help her avoid the pitfalls that many new business ventures encounter.
The studio was opened in May 2014. Upon opening the client was the sole employee, with 2 machines and seeing roughly 15 clients per day. Today, she has an additional 8 employees, 7 machines and sees roughly 70 clients per day.
