QUESTIONS?

How much does it cost to own a Curves Club?

When purchasing a new franchise, fees start at PhP2.7M including Curves franchise rights, Curves circuit equipment and New Owner training. The franchise agreement is subject to additional ongoing fees including royalties and contributions to the national advertising fund. If you purchase an existing club the cost of the club will vary depending on factors such as the location and size of the existing membership.

What is the total investment I can expect to make?

This is dependent on location, fit out and local requirements, we are happy to work with you on finding the best solution for your business.

What kind of premises should I look for?

We can provide guidance on ‘open territories’ suitable for a new Curves club. We recommend that you look to start a new club in a market with population that has a minimum of 25,000 people or more. You should look for premises in areas that have plenty of women passing by daily. You are responsible for finding a location and details should then be submitted to Curves for approval. Curves Philippines has the right to refuse a location if we feel it is not in the best interest of the brand and/or your business. We recommend a space area of 100 to 120 sqm to get started.

How much income can I expect to earn from my business?

Income from each Curves club varies based on many variables such as market size, demographics, efforts made by owners, competency, and economic factors.

How does a Curves club create a revenue?

The majority of your revenue will be derived from membership fees. Other revenue opportunities include selling Curves products.

How many hours will I work in my club each week?

That decision is completely up to you. The most successful owners of any small to medium business enterprise work in their business full-time. Depending on your circumstances, and management skills, you will be able to set your own hours in your club.

What are the terms of the franchise agreement?

If you are successful with your application, we will send you the Franchise Disclosure Document with all the terms and conditions clearly outlined.

Will I be given help in selecting a site and fit out of my club?

Yes, we can provide some guidance on selecting your site. Curves will need to approve new locations for new Curves franchises. Finding the right location at the right price will set your business up for success. Your success is our success!

How much training will I receive?

At Curves, the training never stops. Initially we have a mandatory, one-week course. Once the first week is completed, we provide daily or weekly assistance via the phone, onsite visits, e-mail communications and various web based programs. Assistance is available for as long as you need it.

Who are the biggest Curves competitors?

Other fitness clubs and wellness facilities represent Curves competitors. However, we offer a unique fitness and weight loss experience that many cannot compete with. We can help you evaluate your competition and explore the possibilities of adding Curves within your market before making any commitment.
