SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bar Method today announced the opening of its 100th studio in Phoenix, AZ. The Bar Method now has presence in 26 states, in addition to Canada.
"It's been a big year for The Bar Method. We celebrated our 15th year in business, introduced a new product, Bar Express, and opened our 100th location," said The Bar Method CEO, Jay DeCoons. "We owe our success to a phenomenal community of studio owners, teachers and clients. They are passionate about The Bar Method, and I'm in awe of their dedication. Our success formula is to partner with savvy entrepreneurs who are inspired to share their love of Bar Method with thousands of others."
Elissa Scannell, the owner of the new Phoenix location, discovered The Bar Method as a Washington, D.C. political consultant. Within one year, Elissa became an instructor, opening her first studio in Phoenix's Arcadia neighborhood.
"I was attracted to The Bar Method because of its focus on tried-and-true technique, rigorous teacher training, luxurious studios, and overall brand quality," said Scannell. "I believe that passion drives business success, and I'm so happy to be part of The Bar Method community of studio owners."
Bar Method studio owners come from a diverse set of career backgrounds, including accounting, retail, marketing, finance, politics and more. The majority of owners are women who started as clients, then decided to change their careers to promote a practice that has had a profound and positive influence on their bodies, self-esteem and lives. Many owners have opened multiple locations in their respective cities.
