    Are there any plans for Canadian locations?

    Hi James- Not at the moment. If an aggressive Area Developer proposes a 10+ unit deal, we'd consider it. In the absence of that, it will be years before we're ready to go international. Currency, foreign languages (provinces that require French, for example), customs, international law - it'll be hard to justify the headache until we've blanketed the top US markets.

    I would think outside of the US, availability of coaches could be a limiting factor. I could see this being very popular in central London, but there is (AFAIK) only one SSC in the UK. And he wears funny hats.

    Not yet! If we get anything serious going in Florida, you'll be one of the first to know. Orlando, Miami, and Tampa are no-brainers.

    Yep, we'd have to put some effort into finding talent that's interested in relocating internationally, or into developing local talent. We have an announcement coming soon about our well-accessorized friend in the UK.
