Opening Your Float Center
Opening a float center is far more demanding than you’d assume. A 4-tank center can easily cost $300,00 – $400,000 to launch correctly. Then there’s the intimidating task of filling up your tanks each month to cover rent, staffing, salt, laundry, and all of your other costs… and don’t forget you have to pay yourself.
Through our highly praised Apprenticeship program and Workshop series at the Float Conference, we’ve trained over 600 people on the fundamentals of opening up a float tank center. Our online apprenticeship covers all of the same material, but is delivered at your pace from the comfort of your home and at a fraction of the price of flying out for our in-person apprenticeship.
Let’s Get Started
In over 10 hours of online courses, Graham, Ashkahn, and Jake from Float On guide you through the process of starting your float tank center and building up your customers & members. From lease negotiation, to construction, to marketing, to revenue and expense projections – our course takes you from your early plans through opening day and beyond.
When your center is up and running, you’ll find that the online apprenticeship is also a wonderful asset to have on hand for initially training your employees and shop managers.
Join today, and if you really don’t think it gives you way more value than what you spend on it, please, take advantage of our 100% money-back guarantee (but we seriously doubt that you will).
What’s in the Online Apprenticeship?
We really do cover all of the things you want to know, plus all of the critical things that you don’t know that you don’t know. Build yourself a framework of knowledge by going through the full Online Apprenticeship, and then review each section as you need it during the process.
