Craig and Lori Barrow, Vapor Galleria, Plano, TX
At the beginning of 2009 we began to research different fitness franchises to supplement our income. We decided to choose a fitness franchise for a number of reasons one of which was a personal recommendation from another successful owner. We liked the idea of a franchise for the “recipe” to follow and support offered. After 5 successful years as a fitness franchisee we sold our location and decided to try something else!
After 15 years working for a volume home builder Craig left and started his own construction company summer of 2010. Since then he has built numerous restaurants, retail stores and custom homes! Craig also built his first Vapor Galleria Corporate Store in 2014. During the construction phase of this store he began to consider the idea of owning another franchise.
Within a few months of selling our Fitness Franchise we signed the papers to open our very own Vapor Galleria store! We have been open just over a year and sales are steadily rising! We have a great location in the North Dallas area. Our team consists of 2 full time and 2 part time employee’s. We visit the store weekly and monitor everything else remotely.
By far this franchise experience requires less time of us than our previous franchise. If you are considering a franchise we highly recommend Vapor Galleria.
