For passionate entrepreneurs who enjoy working with kids and have a strong interest in early education, now is the time to open a Romp n’ Roll franchise.
A Romp n’ Roll franchise is a unique kids’ enrichment and educational franchise unlike the traditional ones found in most communities that solely focus on either gym, art or music. We are poised for growth in 2017 and are looking to partner with entrepreneurs who’d like to bring a Romp n’ Roll to their communities.
Here are three reasons why you should consider franchising with Romp n’ Roll in 2017:
With more than 110 locations in multiple countries, Romp n’ Roll is one of the hottest early education kids’ franchise systems available on the market today. We are focused on expansion across the United States and are initially targeting cities along the Eastern coast, but also welcome interest from other cities in states where we are registered.
The future looks bright for Romp n’ Roll. As the U.S. population continues to grow with the preschool demographic approaching 25 million by 2040, we anticipate increasing demand for the types of activities Romp n’ Roll offers. We are ready to meet the need and are poised for rapid expansion across the country.
“2017 is going to be a ground-breaking year for Romp n’ Roll. By the beginning of 2018, we hope to have added 10 to 12 new franchises to the Romp n’ Roll family,” CEO and co-founder Michael Barnett says. “Within the next five years, our goal is to add 80 to 100 new franchises. By 2030, we hope to be the largest company within our industry.”
Our business model is attractive to entrepreneurs looking to maximize their investment and build a potentially thriving business. Romp n’ Roll operates on an affordable membership fee model, with minimal inventory, no receivables and a part-time staff.
Cash flow is easier and more predictable with a Romp n’ Roll franchise. Our memberships auto renew monthly, automatically charged to the credit card on file. Unlike many other franchises, your cash isn’t tied up in inventory with Romp n’ Roll. We do sell some souvenirs and other branded items, but the bulk of revenue comes from services. Nor will your staff need to handle receivables or worry with collections. Our members pre-pay for all services we provide.
Our location can open with a full-time owner/operator and 7-8 part-time employees, making staffing expenses less than other businesses. “Our workforce is made up predominantly of part-time employees,” Michael Barnett, Romp n’ Roll CEO and co-founder, explains. “We don’t have to deal with a lot of labor issues with benefits and things like that for the majority of our staff.”
Romp n’ Roll franchise is a kids’ enrichment and educational franchise unlike the traditional gym-, art- or music-only ones found in most communities. Romp n’ Roll is unique as it targets a specific demographic — children ages 3 months to 5 years — with comprehensive, research-based and developmentally appropriate gym, music, dance, science and art classes all under one roof. Parents and kids can have fun together while learning and developing skills that prepare them for school.
Most of our competitors offer a narrow selection of activities, such as gymnastics, to a wide range of ages — from babies to teens. At Romp n’ Roll, we do the reverse. We offer a wide range of activities — including music, movement, art, dance, cooking, science, sports and more — to a narrow range of ages (3 months through 5 years). This focus allows us to be THE place for parents to bring their children for classes and parties, and they are sure to find something their child will love because of the variety we offer.
