2nd box

Can you open a second box with the same name and affiliation?

Re: 2nd box

Not with the identical name.

Only one person can own an affiliate. If you have a partner, you can each "own" an affiliate, maybe offer dual membership options?

You must start a second affiliate with a different, however could be similiar, name.

Re: 2nd box

Hey guys,

Sorry to hijack the thread but I think my question has a bit of relevancy to the topic.

In an interview with CrossFit games Jason Khalipa states that he has 3 gyms and hopes to open up more.

Does he have multiple boxes or does he have just have a line of traditional gyms on the side?

No disrespect to him or anything. Just want to make sure I have my facts correct

Re: 2nd box

the affiliation as far as HQ is concerned is tied to the individual. so he can have someone else as the person registered the affiliation but has a business arrangement with Jason that makes him an owner or part owner of the company. remember that the affiliation doesn't always = business entity.
