Carrie Turley-Smith will open Brickhouse Cardio Club in Cape Coral, FL

Charleston, WV (May 24, 2012) – Charleston, WV-based Brickhouse Cardio Club has announced its newest franchisee, Carrie Turley-Smith, who will open the first Brickhouse Cardio Club in the state of Florida.  Turley-Smith will open her first Brickhouse Cardio Club in Cape Coral, FL.

Turley-Smith becomes Brickhouse Cardio Club’s 40th franchisee in 14 states as it continues to expand across the country.

“We are pleased and very excited to have found someone the caliber of Carrie Turley-Smith as our first Florida franchisee,” Owner Vic Sprouse said.  “We have already heard from many ladies and instructors in Florida who have been wondering when Brickhouse would arrive there and with the addition of Carrie, we will be there much earlier than we had planned.  It’s going to be awesome for the ladies of Florida to begin having a cardio studio devoted to them and be able to pay one low monthly price for unlimited classes.  Brickhouse Cardio Club and Carrie will be there to help them achieve their fitness goals.”

Brickhouse Cardio Club franchisee Carrie Turley-Smith added, “Cape Coral is a perfect town and area for Brickhouse Cardio Club.  The concept is perfect for here and I am excited to help the women of this area meet their fitness goals.  We will provide consistent classes at consistent times in a studio built for cardio classes like Zumba.  I’m excited to bring the Brickhouse brand to Florida and am excited to get our studio open soon.”

“We have been contacted by more ladies in Florida than in any other states wanting Brickhouse Cardio Club to expand there.  The ladies there have been paying a fortune for single Zumba classes,” Co-owner Misti Janey said.  “They will finally have the option of paying one low monthly price and receiving unlimited classes at consistent times in a perfect facility for cardio classes like Zumba.  We are excited to bring Brickhouse Cardio Club to Florida and are excited to begin franchising there.”

Co-owner Marie McDavid said.  “The most important aspect of entering another state is finding the right franchisee for the area and we certainly have found her in Carrie.  Carrie will be an awesome franchisee.  She has the enthusiasm and business background to have a successful studio in Cape Coral.  We continue to be amazed and thankful for the strong response to our Brickhouse Cardio Club brand.  We will be announcing more franchisees in more states soon!”
