"In nearly 30 years as a franchisee, franchisor and as the owner of my own business, rarely have I come across a Franchising business model where the founders have the passion, dedication and will to be the best. Vivafit is one of these franchising systems. Connie and Pedro Ruiz, who founded the company, have the passion that many other brands just wish for. They have systems, procedures and an underlying support basis that many older, bigger companies don’t have.
I highly recommend anyone looking for a concept where they can invest as a Master Franchisee to take a long, hard look at the Vivafit franchising model and talk to me personally if they have any doubts."
