If you're newer to Moms on the Run, you may not realize that we've only been around for 12 years. Now 50 locations around the country, Moms on the Run has a unique story of how we came to be. Recently, Karissa Johnson, founder and CEO of Moms on the Run, was featured on the Harvest Growth Podcast. While this podcast is geared to those who are interested in business best practices, it's a great conversation about the story behind the business and what makes us different from just another running club. Listen in!
At Moms on the Run, our volunteer and head coaches are critical to the success of our program. At every location around the country, we have amazing women who have a passion and zest for running, who are committed to helping our members class after class, and who encourage and uplift each member — no matter what level they're at. There are so many women who continually impress us, year after year. This year, Beth Jensen, owner and coach with White Bear Lake /Shoreview Moms on the Run, is our 2019 Twin Cities' Most Inspirational Coach.
Moms on the Run was just named in Entrepreneur Magazine's list of 'Top 100 Franchises For Less Than $50,000.' The list features the top 100 franchises that can be started for less than $50k, ranked on the scores they received in the 2019 Franchise 500. Moms on the Run is proud to receive this recognition for our low investment business opportunity.
Based in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, Moms on the Run began offering franchises in 2012 and just signed its 50th franchise in Louisiana. With the recent addition of new locations in Texas and Colorado, Moms on the Run is located in nine states. "The geographical expansion of our program is paramount to our mission," says Karissa Johnson, Founder & CEO. "We look forward to inspiring and transforming more women's live, as well as entire communities, with fitness, fun and friendship."
Johnson says the business opportunity is truly unique due to both the low investment risk and the high amount of flexibility provided to franchise owners. "Whether a mom is looking for a hobby coaching a few hours a week or a much larger opportunity overseeing multiple locations with a coaching staff, we have the resources in place to help support women who are self-motivated and serious about growing a business." For more information about our part-time opportunity for women, please see our franchise site.
Moms on the Run is excited to announce the addition of its 50th franchise — and 9th state — with the recent additions of Austin (TX), Denver (CO) and Lafayette (LA). Now more women can experience the fitness, fun and friendship that makes Moms on the Run so unique.
Our mission is to inspire and transform women through a healthy lifestyle of fitness, fun and friendship. We are all about women supporting other women (not just moms), helping them to embrace fitness routines that fit their busy lives.
