"While on a training run in the summer of 2006 I began thinking about names for the new retail store my wife and I planned to launch. We wanted a welcoming name that covered a broad spectrum, not just triathlon, or running. Then it hit me: Endurance House! I felt this name captured what we wanted to create: A genuine and encouraging retail atmosphere for triathletes, runners, and walkers of all abilities. So I picked up my pace and headed for home, excited to share the idea with my wife. I also wanted to see if the endurancehouse.com domain name was available. So I finished my run and burst into my wife’s home office saying “Quick, check to see if endurancehouse.com is available”!
It was, and our journey began. As we developed plans for Endurance House we structured it to become a franchise. We believe deeply in our brand and our core philosophy: Our business is about people and relationships, plain and simple. We have a passion for triathlon, marathons, swimming and all things endurance. Combining our business and marketing experience into something we loved so much and sharing it with others was a no-brainer. Today, we’re helping people all over the U.S. Own Their Passion by becoming Endurance House franchise owners. In doing so, we’re striving to deliver our brand of Gold Standard guest service to triathletes, runners, and walkers of all abilities in a genuine and encouraging atmosphere!"

Discover how Endurance House can make a difference in your life, and allow you to make a difference in the lives of others.
The Endurance Retail Concept™ Triathlons, marathons, half marathons and other endurance competitions have experienced tremendous growth over the past ten years. According to USAT (national governing body for triathlon), participation in triathlons was up nearly 15% from 2011 to 2012, and USAT membership has grown by a multiple of 20 in the last decade. Athletes of all ability levels and ages have flocked to triathlon, running and other endurance competitions for the challenge, camaraderie, and fun. Because of this, specialty stores like Endurance House® have experienced growth even through the recent recession.
In fact, the average triathlete spends in excess of $3,000 annually on gear and equipment! And even though there are a lot of independent running shoe stores and bike shops, no one has created a national retail concept specifically catering to the multi-sport athlete—that is, until Endurance House entered the scene. Endurance House and our triathlon retail franchise concept is poised to capitalize on this growth- both in traditional retail sales and with proprietary training, fitting and coaching programs.
If you are searching for a business that allows you to own your passion, with a proven business model to give you every advantage, we believe Endurance House offers one of the best opportunities in franchising. Having developed a unique triathlon retail franchise operating system, our goal is to become America’s #1 multi-sport retailer. We’re looking for the right franchise partners to team up with for national expansion.
