“We are very excited about our continued global growth, as well as opportunities for further expansion within Turkey,” said Shannon Hudson, 9Round CEO and founder, in a news release. “With hundreds of additional 9Round franchises in various stages of development around the world, we plan on having a total of 1,000 open locations by the end of 2018 and 5,000 open by 2030.”
