HASTINGS, Minn., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Anytime Fitness, the world's largest and fastest-growing co-ed fitness franchise, announced today the acquisition of Waxing the City (WTC), a salon business dedicated to waxing/hair removal services. The agreement was finalized on October 9, 2012.

The acquisition of Waxing the City represents an ongoing strategy for the co-founders of Anytime Fitness to expand into recession-resilient industries that make a difference in people's lives.

"We're excited to extend the Anytime Fitness mission of 'improving the self-esteem of the world' to the hair removal category," said Chuck Runyon, Anytime Fitness CEO. "WTC helps people feel good about themselves in a non-intimidating environment, much like Anytime Fitness has done for the last 10 years."

Waxing the City specializes in providing outstanding, high-quality facial and body waxing services for women and men at affordable prices. Their highly-trained "Cerologists™" take a scientific approach to the art of waxing, while also specializing in the art of exceptional customer service.


Currently, WTC has four locations in the Denver area and one salon in Dallas, TX. "When we opened the first waxing-only salon in Denver nine years ago, we knew we were on to something very special," said Robin Schoh, co-founder and CEO of Waxing the City. "Our clientele would travel great distances for our expertise and personal service. Now, with franchising on a national level, we can be the best – and most convenient – waxing experience."

The first company-owned WTC salon will open in Woodbury, MN, in mid-December, 2012, with plans to begin rapid expansion into franchise sales by April 2013.


"We're confident we can leverage our existing economies of scale to integrate WTC into the Anytime Fitness model of success," said Dave Mortensen, President and Co-founder of Anytime Fitness.
