A great year for Parisi Speed School has just gotten better as Entrepreneur Magazine once again named the fitness franchise to their annual Franchise 500® list. This is the third straight year that Parisi Speed School has made the list among the likes of some of the most successful brands in the fitness industry. In fact, Parisi has held rank on this prestigious list for four out of the last five years.
“We continue to work tirelessly each year to bring new value to our facilities and athletes,” stated Bill Parisi, Founder of Parisi Speed School and Parisi Training Systems, “Continually being named on this list is a great honor. Our franchise opportunity is grounded in affordability, growth potential and uniqueness to support our mission of helping business owners to truly make a difference in the lives of youth in their community.”
Parisi Speed School continues to evolve as the needs of the market change. Just this year, Parisi announced a new structure to their offering, making the switch to a tiered license system with add-on services determined by the unique needs of each business.
“It has always been our goal to provide a service that enables great successes for new businesses,” said Dr. Paul Staples, CEO of Parisi Training Systems. “We recognized a need for a more customizable option in order to reach a greater audience and we adjusted accordingly. I believe this has been the key to our success and growth over the last 25 years.”
2017 marked 25 years since Bill Parisi bought the infamous $500 van and the Parisi Speed School became more than just a concept, but officially a business. Today, Parisi is in partnership with NCSA, the largest high school sports recruiting organization in the country, Atlantic Sports Health, the official healthcare partner of the New York Jets, and SKLZ, a leader in sports performance training products.
