Road to 300: Stretch Zone

Stretch Zone Reaches Final Stop on Road to 300 Locations

LAKE OSWEGO, Ore. – Stretch Zone, the nation’s premier assisted stretching brand with a patented strapping system on proprietary tables, will open its 300th location on June 27th, 2023. The new studio is located at 4859 Meadows Road Suite 157, Lake Oswego, OR 97035. This announcement takes place exactly a year after Stretch Zone opened their 200th location in June of 2022 and marks a tremendous achievement for the brand as they continue their nationwide expansion.

Stretch Zone Lake Oswego is owned by Michelle Ginn, who has developed Stretch Zone locations across Oregon, California, and Washington. This is the second Stretch Zone studio to open in the Portland area. As a passionate advocate of health and well-being, Ginn is eager to positively influence the lives of their clients through the benefits of assisted stretching.

Tony Zaccario, President and CEO of Stretch Zone, will be making an appearance at the Lake Oswego studio on June 26 to help launch the new business into the community. Zaccario will also be hosting a live-stream celebration for the 300th location along with Drew Brees, Stretch Zone Franchisee and Former NFL Star, hopping on to discuss the brand’s incredible growth.

“Lake Oswego is a vibrant city just south of Portland that is well known for supporting active and healthy lifestyles. We have no doubt that its citizens will benefit from the unique and revitalizing services Stretch Zone offers,” said Ginn. “We are proud to be the 300th location opening and cannot wait to bring Stretch Zone’s transformative services to the people of Lake Oswego.”

Throughout the past year, Stretch Zone has opened 100 new locations, providing practitioner-assisted stretching to communities across the country. Among its 300 locations, Stretch Zone has yet to have any studios close which attests to its resilience and equity as a franchise opportunity.

“The opening of our 300th location is a significant accomplishment that would not have been possible without the support of a robust network of franchisees, a committed corporate team, and a well-established stretching methodology,” said Zaccario. “We are excited to be partnering with Michelle to open the new Stretch Zone in Lake Oswego and improve the quality of life for more clients in the Portland area.”

Founded by Jorden Gold in 2004, Stretch Zone got its start from a desire of wanting to help his Pop-Pop regain mobility. Gold, who was working as a trainer at the time, utilized his background in the wellness space to start stretching his grandfather, who had been bed-ridden due to age and a variety of health complications. He realized through this process that there was room to develop a new approach that amplified the results from stretching. Gold spent months pioneering a proprietary training method that uses a table and straps to help achieve long lasting effects that truly impact day-to-day life. Pop-Pop went from being bed-ridden, to using his walker, to dancing at his grandchild’s wedding in a matter of months. Gold knew how many lives could benefit from practitioner-assisted stretching and sought to begin introducing the concept to the nation through franchising.

Stretch Zone is actively looking for experienced franchise owners who have a passion for helping their communities. The brand functions from a franchisee-first approach and is open to both multi and single-unit operators to help carry out the brand’s mission.
