    It sounds crazy, but I could see Manitoba or Saskatchewan happening.
    BC has a bunch of smaller gyms, so that'd be in the 'long shot' category with Ontario and Quebec.

    I just heard two coaches from gymtime Illinois are coming to take over pcm Irvine next year.

    Wow, that would leave them with only one location. Another big player in California that is seemingly disappearing.

    It sounds like they are keeping the pcm name.

    Tell me how this works. Because I've heard of one, but it isn't released publicly yet so I won't say anything. And the acquired gym seems to think that nothing will really change, that they will get the benefit of the big name and they will still run the show. But from a business perspective, I would think that lots of things would have to change in order for the acquired gym to then fit the brand.

    I don't know the answers, but based on most gyms being renamed to a big brand, nothing changes except the name and the brand doesn't seem to care. There are some really badly run gyms with a big brand name - my daughter worked for one and it was a nightmare.

    I don't know all of the details of all of the various business models, but it would seem there is quite a range of how much "influence" different multi-gym brands have over the day-to-day operations of each their locations. Each setup has its pros and cons.

    Interesting. As a customer I would find this confusing. Part of brand recognition to me, is knowing what to expect from that particular brand. If I go to Chik Fil A, I don't expect to buy a burger.

    The quality is usually most consistent when the Mega actually sends staff from the flagship, I'd think? Or at least makes the staffing decisions.

    Same staff from Old Gym + New Name = Same Gym but with CEA/CA/etc. on the front.

    You are correct, they are coming to run PCM Irvine. Murrieta and Irvine will still work together throughout the season :)
