Like many franchise owners, Kathy Anderson went into franchising as a second career. After two decades in retail banking, Anderson wanted to go into something she was passionate about. She found StretchLab, a boutique wellness business that provides assisted-stretch sessions. Fitness and health has always been a part of Kathy’s life so StretchLab was exactly what she was looking for. She opened the first StretchLab in Delaware in Pike Creek and business has been booming ever since.
StretchLab really focuses on the well-being and health of their clients. Their stretch sessions are customized to each individual. Types of clients at the Pike Creek StretchLab can range from an 8 year-old gymnast to 60 year-old marathon runner or a person recovering from a hip replacement.
For Kathy, she could not run a successful franchise without her incredible team of professionals. Her employees, known as ‘fllexologists’, are the lifeblood of Kathy’s business. Flexologists at the Pike Creek StretchLab have backgrounds in exercise science, kinesiology, and anatomy. For Kathy’s flexoligists, their work at Stretchlab is complementary to their careers as physical trainers or massage therapists.
