We are the largest movie and game rental chain in the United States. We operate more than 775 Family Video stores in 19 U.S. states and Canada; we're opening more all the time. Our unique property-ownership model makes us a different sort of retailer because we buy and develop most of our buildings and land. We have developed more than 600 retail strip centers and count Fortune 500 companies as well as Mom and Pop retailers amongst our tenants.
Our entrepreneurial spirit is what makes Family Video grow. Recent efforts include opening Marco's Pizza stores, adjacent to our brick and mortar stores to offer one-stop shopping for dinner and entertainment, sister companies such as ITV-3, a cable television service that uses fiber-to-the-home technology, and StayFit-24, state-of-the-art fitness centers that offer workouts in a clean and safe environment.
We are a company made of talented and dedicated people who take pride in a job well done ¿ and like to have fun doing it. Our days are built around four daily goals; to learn, to teach, to WOW and to improve. More than 7,000 people make our team strong and successful as we serve our customers and build this exciting company.
As our company grows, there is unlimited potential for talented people. Building more stores means making additional opportunities for part-time and full-time employees, as well as assistant managers. After successfully completing a comprehensive training program, Store Managers are offered opportunities to grow with our company and relocate, District Managers are needed to oversee multiple stores and Regional Managers are promoted to build our company in new markets.
