CITYROW offers instructor led group fitness workouts which pair high-intensity intervals of rowing with strength and mobility training for the most effective, dynamic workout on the market. The row machine is THE MOST EFFECTIVE stationary cardio machine on the market, but it needed an overhaul to make it sexy, accessible and fun for general fitness consumers. Thus, CITYROW was born.

CITYROW isn't just another workout. It's an experience that delivers results. Rowing is the future, poised to achieve the same level of consumer adoption as spinning and running. Long favored by athletes, trainers and physical therapists, the row machine is the most effective cardio machine on the market, working 84% of the body's muscles in every stroke with minimal impact to the joints. It's incredibly effective, challenging AND safe for the vast majority of the population and has longevity with its practitioners. Much like spinning and running before it, consumers just need to be educated and sold on its superior benefits.

CITYROW uses the WaterRower, which is the most visually appealing machine on the market. The WaterRower also provides a more fluid/organic rowing experience and is better overall for people who are non-rowers as they are significantly less jarring on the body.

Color World Housepainting

Color World is an innovative, five-businesses-in-one, home improvement enterprise. Since 1997, they have revolutionized and perfected residential and commercial painting. Through experience, they discovered other home improvements are complimentary to painting, such as power washing, gutter installation, and minor drywall and carpentry work. They added these services, as well as holiday lighting, to their repertoire in order to become a convenient, one-stop shop for customers.

The diverse portfolio they offer allows clients to maintain and upgrade the interior and exterior of their homes or offices, going above and beyond other franchise concepts in the industry. Instead of having to contact five different companies for maintenance and repair, hey send out one crew that takes care of all homeowner or property manager needs. This combination not only increases customer retention rates but also allows Franchise Owners to generate strong profits, and operate their sub-contractors year around.

Business Features:

  1. 5 Businesses in 1: While there are a number of franchise opportunities that offer painting, none provide the ancillary services Color World has spent years perfecting. They offer power washing, gutter installation, holiday lighting, minor drywall and carpentry repair making them a one-stop home improvement shop for their customers.
  2. Outstanding Economics: Their 5 different revenue streams present owners with unlimited potential to generate strong returns. Their 2018 Item 19 shows their top Franchise Owner who generated $1.4 million in revenue with $586,748 in gross profit!
  3. Personal Autonomy: They have built a successful system that empowers owners to operate their business Monday-Friday, 7:30 am - 4:30 pm; affording them the work/life balance they desire. They also allow owners to focus on the services that interest them. If an owner wants to focus more on gutter installation and less on holiday lighting they grant them the freedom to do so.
  4. Quick Ramp-Up: They are a home-based business, meaning Franchise Owners will not spend time locating real estate, negotiating a lease, or waiting on a buildout. Because of this, and because they have spent over 20 years refining the concept, they are ready for owners to start generating money in 8-12 weeks from signing an agreement!
  5. Management of Minimal Employees: Since the Franchise Owner does not perform the services themselves, they can initially manage jobs on their own using sub-contracted crews. As they begin to scale, they will only need one office member for every 3-4 full-time crews.
