Farrah Rose, the International Franchising Director at The Franchising Centre recently travelled to the Blink Fitness head office in New York to meet with the Blink’s President, Todd Magazine as well as all of Blink’s management team.

Ms Rose said of her 5 day trip “Beating many US and European franchise consultants to claim this contract is a fantastic achievement” She further added “As well as preparing the best strategy for international franchising, we have set up introductions for Blink Fitness to 3 non-European franchise brokers, arranged to meet investors for a brand presentation in London and to meet 35 European and non-European brokers in Bucharest later in the year.”

As well as a hectic schedule of meetings, Ms Rose squeezed in work outs in Blink Fitness’s Manhattan gyms, “It was great to use their excellent facilities for myself” she said.

Brian Duckett, Chairman of The Franchising Centre commented “This is a fantastic contract win and one that Farrah has worked very hard to secure, beating some very stiff competition from both sides of the Atlantic.”

Mr Duckett added “I’m delighted that, once again, The Franchising Centre’s, and particularly Farrah’s expertise in international franchising has been recognised by a company with ambitious goals and we can work with them to achieve those.”
