The fitness industry is back on the rise, regaining its pre-recession form. Since 2000, the total number of gym, spa, and health club memberships in the United States has grown from 32.8 million in 2000 to a whopping 54.1 million in 2014, according to Statista.com. While this is great news for gym and spa owners, it also means increased competition. While overall membership is up, so too is the number of gyms and spas nationwide – 34,460 in all. As a result, gym and spa owners are constantly trying to minimize costs, maximize productivity, and increase profits. One way to do this is by investing in a towel rental service.
The Not-So-Secret Benefits of Towel Rental
Offering a towel service is a pretty common practice among gyms and spas. After all, your members don’t want to haul their smelly towels everywhere they go. Unfortunately, this simple convenience for your members can put a strain on your workforce and your budget. It takes time – LOTS of time – to properly launder hundreds of towels each and every day. And then there are the expenses associated with this: cleaning supplies, equipment, and, of course, labor. This all adds up pretty quickly, negatively impacting your bottom line. The solution: Towel Rental, which frees you of the hassle and expense of laundering and managing your own towels. There is no initial investment, there is no need to purchase towels, there is no need to purchase equipment, and there is no need to pay for any additional labor. Your towel rental service will handle everything, from pickup and delivery to laundering and repairs, for a flat, weekly fee.
