COSTA MESA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On the heels of last month’s announcement of the signing of its 500th franchise agreement, Club Pilates, the largest and fastest-growing Pilates franchise in the world, is setting its eyes on further national expansion – specifically on the East Coast.
The brand’s unparalleled and premium service has triggered growth in major markets across the country while also attracting the attention of TPG Growth, a new investor in the brand, and Club Pilates is currently eyeing the Big Apple as its next expansion hub.

At the expo, Club Pilates will be at Booth 1051 to meet with potential franchise candidates to discuss the brand’s recent investment news, long-term vision and franchise opportunity.
“Club Pilates is experiencing tremendous growth, and we feel confident that New York expansion will help take our brand to the next level,” said Anthony Geisler, CEO of Club Pilates. “We’re excited to exhibit at IFE to meet with prospective franchisees to join the Club Pilates family.”
