Oranj Franchise Opportunity
Interested in joining the oranj fitness family?
We couldn't be happier to share this opportunity with you. Oranj fitness was founded in February 2008 in Kelowna, BC. Since then our tribe has grown, getting people boogying in Fort McMurray, Castlegar, Grande Prairie, Penticton and Airdrie! Our vision doesn't stop here, we are so excited to grow with you!
At oranj fitness our specialty is fun and cutting-edge drop‐in fitness, spin, barre and yoga classes. Our studios are luxerious facilities featuring sprung dance floors, innovative fitness rooms, full-amenity change rooms, a childcare room [aka Mini Boogiers], retail store and a superfood vegan smoothie bar. We hire absolute rockstar staff and world class instructors to ensure a safe and inviting environment for all.
Why oranj? It’s the level of detail we put into every step of our process. We know that opening and running your own business is a big life and career decision. From our initial meeting to buildout, training and ongoing, our team makes rocking your oranj studio easy and rewarding.
We are looking for franchise partners to spread the love in communities across Canada. Our ideal partner is healthy, energetic and lives the oranj values.
We want a world where the status quo is boogying. Want to play?
