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."

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.
