Unique kids’ franchise is poised for growth and expansion in 2017
Romp n’ Roll franchise is excited about growing and expanding throughout the country this year. In many communities, there’s a great demand for the services we offer with little to no direct competition. Because we offer a wide variety of art, music and movement classes all under one roof, Romp n’ Roll is unlike any other kids’ franchise out there, and these five fast facts give more reasons why:
We are focused on a targeted demographic
Romp n’ Roll specifically targets the pre-school set, serving children ages 5 months to 5 years and their families. We don’t try to be all things to all ages. Our narrow 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. This approach also allows us to build facilities that are unmistakably designed for our target market. It also allows us to hire and train staff who have a passion for young children.
We are serious about fun and learning
No other kids’ business can compete with Romp n’ Roll’s creative, varied and high quality offerings. Each week, a different theme, such as superheroes or outer space, brings to life our research-based curriculum.
“We serve children 3 months through 5 years old and that age span is just vast when you’re talking about development,” Vice President of Operations Jenneane Snyder explains. “The most important things that will happen in a child’s life happen in those first five years. We have a big responsibility to make sure we are presenting our classes in ways that are appropriate for every age we serve so we put a lot of research into our curriculum development. This is where art meets science – the children are playing and having fun but they are also learning. Our job is to make sure the fun and the learning – the art and the science – work hand in hand.”
We have many prime U.S. markets available
We have unbelievable opportunity for growth and expansion in most U.S. markets. Our Romp n’ Roll franchise is a welcome addition to any community, serving children and their families with the best in education and enrichment activities.
We are initially targeting cities in the Eastern half of the United States from North to South — including, but not limited to, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Northern Virginia/Maryland, Raleigh, Charlotte, Atlanta, Orlando, Jacksonville, Tampa and Miami — and we welcome interests from other cities in states where we are registered, as well.
Our services are in high demand
There’s great demand for the type of play-based education and enrichment classes Romp n’ Roll offers. With almost 25 million kids expected to make up the U.S. population by the year 2040, that demand will only increase, making a Romp n’ Roll franchise one of the hottest businesses to own.
“I always hesitate to say that we’re recession-proof, but I do think it’s fair to say that there are always going to be little kids in this world and parents who want the best for them,” Michael Barnett, Romp n’ Roll CEO and co-founder says. “Parents will always invest in their socialization and their entertainment and their education. I think that there’s always going to be a market for our services.”
We think customer service is important
“Our customer service really sets us apart,” Babz Barnett, Romp n’ Roll co-founder, says. “We are committed to nurturing parents. Often, they lose their identity — especially Mom — when that baby comes and they can feel lost. So parents have a place to go that is not only great for the child, but is also great for the grown-ups and nurturing for the grown-ups. Our customer service model doesn’t really exist in the other brands. We’re a lot more nurturing.”
We offer customers an affordable monthly membership fee for classes, which renews automatically and is charged to a credit card on file. This design encourages repeat business and means our franchise owners enjoy recurring, predictable revenue.
