Franchise of the Month – Fitness Machine Technicians

This months feature is a B to B concept that has all the right features: low investment, low employee count, and recurring revenue.

Fitness Machine Technicians (FMT) specializes in the maintenance and repair of exercise equipment for gyms, corporations, hotels, and private residences – basically everywhere fitness equipment is used.

Colleges, residential complexes, hotel chains, recreation and fitness centers continue to expand their gym facilities to address growing interest in exercise as part of ongoing wellness. Exercise equipment, such as treadmills, elliptical, stationary bikes and stair steppers, must be maintained to ensure their ongoing availability to members, residents and guests. As equipment manufacturers often do not provide services to fix or adjust machinery, exercise facility managers find themselves working with inexperienced mom-and-pop operations to conduct repairs.

Offering factory-trained and authorized technicians, FMT offers reliable service/repair and maintenance services on a variety of exercise equipment on a contract and non-contract basis. With accounts throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, FMT has established brand recognition as the source for quality fitness machine maintenance and customer service.

What you get with FMT is a national franchise opportunity with potential for recurring income through ongoing service-based contracts. Helping first time business owners avoid mistakes, Fitness Machine Technicians offers an operating business model with proven systems and processes that have been utilized by the corporate location since 2002. Streamlined operations for franchisees include a call center for outbound calling, annual preventive maintenance contracts, integrated field/technician point of sale support including invoicing and GPS tracking and customer relationship management.
