MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- NextBarre in Mount Kisco earned grand prize this summer in a national competition aimed at encouraging business owners to fulfill their goals via new technologies.
The fitness center earned the top honor in the Big Goals Big Rewards Competition, sponsored by Mindbody. The contest lasted from Feb. 1 through April 30 and “encouraged business owners to chase their dreams and conquer their boldest goals by leveraging technology.”
Heather Queiroz and Diana Pecci -- owners of NextBarre, 293 Lexington Ave., Mount Kisco, N.Y. -- demonstrated the best performances in three separate business growth categories such as client growth and volume of online bookings. The honor makes NextBarre one of the fastest growing start-ups in the nation this year.
For their efforts, the duo received $10,000 in prize winnings and a free trip to Mindbody’s headquarters in San Luis Obispo, Calif.
"Do something that you love, because it will consume you 24/7," said Queiroz in a statement.
Queiroz, a Mount Kisco resident, teamed up with NextBarre founder Pecci to bring the California-based company to the East Coast. NextBarre has locations in Danville and Lafayette, Calif., and is adding two new locations in San Francisco.
