How Much Does It Cost To Open a Barre Studio?
When someone reaches out to me to open a barre studio, one of the first questions they have is - how much money will it take to open my studio?

This question can vary widely.  I’ve seen people spend over $350,000 with many of the franchises - our goal is build out, equipment, marketing, signage - and to get the doors open for less than $100,000.  

The US Chamber of Commerce has shown that 50% of companies that do not have systems for success close within their first five years, compared to only 3% of those that do have access to the systems of those that went before them.


In my eight years in this business, I have seen MANY studios close, or the owner NEVER really make a living running their business!  Studio in a Box is designed to help you avoid the costly mistakes and have tremendous business 


One of the absolute biggest mistakes I have seen made time and time again are surrounding the lease:

  • Not having appropriate renewal terms

  • Overpaying rent

  • Being responsible for LARGE expenses that are normally borne by the landlord (Think $150k in BAD expenses)

  1. Hear Diana's Story:
  2. This past year, Diana reached out to hire me AFTER she had negotiated her lease.
  3. Her lease was the WORST lease I had ever seen. The landlord saddled her with a series of annual expenses that were not typical. But worse than that - they not only didn't give her any building concessions - they charged her to INSTALL the AC, to INSTALL the walls between her and her neighbor, to INSTALL the initial electrical (an expense of over $150,000!)
  4. Where we normally negotiate about $20,000 - $50,000 in concessions for our clients, she didn't get any concessions - she also incurred over $150,000 in EXPENSES she shouldn't have! She will STRUGGLE for YEARS TO COME because of this one mistake!


My goal is to help other women AVOID these costly mistakes and build successful, super profitable studios - without the $50,000 in franchise fees!

After receiving a glowing testimonial from another client of Amy’s, my decision was simple - I went all in. It was one of the easiest (and best) decisions I have made. 


While the abundant information and resources in the SIB portal are valuable time and money savers, I have found the most value and support in my direct contact with Amy (my “Amy Dates”). Our entire process of opening our studio was just a few months and Amy’s analogy of “drinking water through a fire hose” was spot on!  In addition to her vast knowledge and experience (lease negotiations build out, staffing, marketing, etc.),


Amy is honest, professional, personable, kind, and fun. Opening a studio has been my dream for the past 8 years. My investment in Amy and SIB has been worth every penny.

Studio in a Box was without a doubt the best money I have spent for my studio to date. 


Studio in a Box is fantastic; it walks you through your business plan, studio build out, hiring packets, and props. Literally, everything you need is in an online portal that walks you from step one to step 100. How to protect your brand by trademarking it,  how to find employees, how to register your business with the state. Licenses and permitting and things that when I said I wanted to own a studio I never would have guessed, and I am a third generation entrepreneur! The logistics of business ownership - that is where Amy shines and where she saved me time and time again.
 
I’m not sure when Amy sleeps, but I know she never ignored a late night email or a desperate “what do I do?!” text message.  I would choose Studio in a box every time.


Good Luck

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Amy's Studio in a Box program.  I highly recommend it for anyone dreaming of starting a studio without the franchise fees, while maintaining true creative freedom.


I had contemplated opening a franchise and had been speaking with one in particular but I had always heard that you were buying yourself a job when you buy into a franchise...which is what I wanted to leave.  They also required very high liquidity and required me to quit my job.  I thirsted for the freedom to do what I wanted and to have the flexibility without rules and fees, but also wanted (and needed) the support.
 
I would not have gotten my loan or a real estate agent to take me seriously without the documents provided for a business plan and financial projections within the program.  


Creating these documents from scratch would have taken forever since I have zero experience in the management of a studio.  


The operations manual, instructor guide, and client forms were a huge time saver and had ideas in them that I hadn't thought to implement.  I continue to reference all the documentation and it is the first place I go if I'm running into an issue and not sure what to do.

I was able to take the information from the marketing and PR section and get local media coverage for my events!


Amy’s program is exceptional.  She goes above and beyond to assist and help you succeed.  She provided every bit of feedback I requested when asking for assistance.  Amy checked on me on a regular basis.  I would highly recommend her program versus trying to wing it or go it alone.  


The most valuable pieces to me were the wealth of documents containing information that I needed prior to opening.  This would include:


  • The checklists
  • The HR forms
  • The ad templates for hiring instructors
  • The equipment links, etc

Kathi Harmon - Testimonial - How to open a barre studio without a barre franchise

If you have a dream of owning your own studio, Amy’s so worth it!


As I started out my dream of having my very own studio, I really didn’t think I would be able to NOT go with a franchise.  I just didn’t think I had enough business and marketing knowledge to start up a studio from scratch.
 
As I looked deeper into the world of franchises, I realized how limited I would be, financially and creatively, to start up this dream.
 
Her studio in a box business program is a packed with everything I could think of that I needed for my business.
 
If there is a form or document out there that you need, Amy has it! I have been able to get sound advice on my studio build out, marketing ideas, and encouragement on a personal level. She is everyone’s cheerleader!  
 
I can’t imagine the stress I would be under if I had decided to go with a franchise--the fees, the monthly royalty payments, the lack of personal expression… the list goes on.

How to open a Barre Studio without a barre franchise

Hi!  I'm Amy Mewborn!  I spent over fifteen years in finance and management before I left my six figure career to open my first barre studio in 2010 and my second barre studio in 2011.  


In 2009, I found barre and it CHANGED MY LIFE!  I went from a size 12 to a size 4.  It improved my confidence and I fell in LOVE!  


I had loved fitness for years, but was afraid to leave my six figure corporate career to open a fitness studio.  Barre was one of the first business models that really made FINANCIAL sense to me!


Despite over 15 years of business and management experience, when I launched my first studio, I made over $75,000 in mistakes in JUST the first year! 


Less then a year later, when I opened my second studio, it was three times more successful and more profitable.

 

Since that time, I have helped write franchise manuals and have helped launch over 45 studios across the world!  


Today I teach women all over the world how to open a successful barre studio  - and get the systems they would get from a franchisor - without the $50,000 in initial barre franchise fees, the 7% annual royalties - and all the rules and restrictions that come with a barre franchise.
