Rock Hill residents will soon see two new franchises that jointly can cater to people looking to enjoy brunch and then quickly burn off those calories.
The Warren Norman Co. announced earlier this week they have signed leases to open franchises with restaurant Famous Toastery and workout space Orangetheory Fitness. The franchises are expected to be converted and ready by the first quarter of 2017, according to David Jewell of The Jewell Agency.
Orangetheory Fitness preaches a personal training workout broken into intervals of cardiovascular and strength training in order to stimulate a healthy heart rate.
Never miss a local story.
“They will be very good fits for the town,” said Norman.
Famous Toastery has leased 4,244 square feet at a stand-alone building on India Hook Rd., with Josh Beaver as the tenant representative. Meanwhile, Orangetheory has leased 3,000 square feet in the Hickory Tavern Center on Celanese Rd, with Scott Mileham as the tenant representative.
Famous Toastery, a Charlotte-based brand, was named a franchise to watch last December by CNBC.
Men’s Journal noted last year that the Orangetheory workout was named one of the 20 best workouts in America.
Famous Toastery has leased 4,244 square feet at a stand-alone building at 2215 Indian Hook Rd. There are also franchises open in Indian Land and Tega Cay.
Orangetheory Fitness has leased 3,000 square feet in the Hickory Tavern Center at 2674 Celanese Rd. This is the first location to open in York County. There are two locations already in Charlotte (Providence Rd. and Park Rd. with another on Ballantyne Village Way coming soon, according to its website).
