Our franchise opportunity is ideal for married couples seeking a fulfilling business to run together
Romp n’ Roll children’s enrichment and education franchise is a great fit for married couples looking for a family business to run together. Our franchise opportunity also speaks to the heart and mind of several entrepreneurial skill sets. The operations aspect of running a Romp n’ Roll, such as recruiting and hiring staff, appeals to the business-minded individual. People who are passionate about teaching kids find the interaction with families fulfilling.
Romp n’ Roll is a kids’ enrichment and educational franchise unlike the traditional gym-, art- or music-only options found in most communities. Romp n’ Roll 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. Kids can have fun while learning and developing skills that prepare them for school.
“Our franchise is perfect for married couples looking for an opportunity that allows them to bring their unique individual business and educational talents to the table,” CEO and co-founder Michael Barnett says. “Our ideal franchisee is someone with both head and heart. What do we mean by that? We don’t want investors who don’t really have a passion for young kids and early education entertainment, and we also don’t really want folks that just have early childhood experience but no entrepreneurial or business background. Our ideal candidate is one who understands that both skill sets are needed to successfully operate a Romp n’ Roll.”
Running a successful Romp n’ Roll requires a natural affinity for networking in your local community. “You have to be a people person. Customer acquisition and filling your new customer funnel is important to the success of your franchise, so being out in your community and networking and having the passion to share about Romp n’ Roll is critical,” says Rachel Stender, Romp n’ Roll Franchise Development Director.
In addition to being a good community networker, a successful Romp n’ Roll franchisee needs to hire a team that complements the business side and the education side of the franchise.
“There are two hats that you essentially wear. One is the business side, and one is the education side. I call them buckets that you want to make sure that you fill before you come into the business. If you don’t fill the education bucket, you need to hire someone who has more of that background. If you don’t fill the business side, and you don’t have that experience, you need to hire someone who can really help you make sure you have those pieces of the puzzle covered,” Rachel says.
Whether you launch your Romp n’ Roll with your spouse or decide to pursue this as a solo franchisee, we have the tools to help you succeed. “Corporate is there with you all the way offering support helping you launch and grow your business. They are a great resource,” Rachel says.
Romp n’ Roll is expanding in 2017 and beyond. Our newest locations include Winter Garden and St. Petersburg, Florida, and we’re expanding throughout the East Coast with additional locations planned for North Carolina and New York. Any location with a need for organized children’s enrichment activities for the preschool set is ideal. Both working parents and stay at home parents find the structured curriculum we offer ideal for preparing their young children for kindergarten.
In most communities, there’s high demand — and little to no competition — for the type of kids’ enrichment and educational franchise Romp n’ Roll offers. If you are interested in bringing Romp n’ Roll to families in your neighborhood, we want to talk to you.
