by Larry Janezich
As first reported by Christina Sturdivant-Sani in the Commercial Observer, a Little Gym franchise is opening at 625 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE. The Little Gym – which will take over the building formerly housing a Mattress Firm Outlet – will occupy 5,000 + square feet and will offer classes for kids from 3 – 12, including dance, gymnastics, sports skills, and karate. They will also offer event space for kids’ birthday parties and other gatherings.
Franchise owners Chad and Tiffany Mussmon, who have eight locations in Virginia, hope to open in January. According to the company, The Little Gym has 400 locations in 32 countries.

Meanwhile, a couple of doors away, a new sign in the window at 621 Pennsylvania Avenue (formerly Bourbon Coffee) announces that Mathnasium – an internationally franchised math tutoring company – is “coming soon.” The company will offer its proprietary Mathnasium Method, which their website says encompasses a complete curriculum from pre-kindergarten to 12th grade math and delivers a customized learning plan designed to address each student’s needs. In September, management told CHC that Mathnasium would open in November. More info here: https://www.mathnasium.com/capitolhilldc
