Our mission is to bring value to elementary schools – with fitness, leadership and funds. More importantly, bring value to your family by investing in a business that changes lives. If you have an entrepreneurial background, take your experience and tools and apply them to a successful, proven business model. And here’s what you get back – you get to give, you get to receive.
From your first step of the race – with the company founder and his highly-trained management team surrounding you — you will be given the support, encouragement, tools, and opportunity to build a brand in your marketplace that creates value to schools and to you as a franchisee. Choose a career and business that gives back. Wake up to know that not only will you provide for your family, but you will build tomorrow’s leaders one student, one school, at a time. When you are an Apex franchisee, you are surrounded by like-minded people who know that making money isn’t exclusive to making a difference. Choose both.
