How much does a JumpBunch franchise cost?
The initial JumpBunch franchise fee is $30,000 for a protected 350,000 population territory.  As part of the screening process, JumpBunch performs a detailed demographic analysis of your area to determine if there is sufficient potential business before we proceed. If you are seriously interested, submit an inquiry and we can begin to discuss the details of this opportunity as it relates to your location and your specific business goals.
Does JumpBunch offer discounts to Veterans?

JumpBunch is proud to offer a deeply discounted franchise fee to make it easier for men and women who have served our country to start a business.  Contact us to learn more about specific offerings available to our valued veterans. 

Beyond the Franchise Fee what expenses are typically incurred to start a location?

Since this is a home-based business, and classes will be offered at other locations, the start-up business expenses are very modest. These costs include items such as insurance, travel for training, legal fees, computer software, marketing materials and sports equipment for classes.

What does the Franchise Fee cover?

The franchise fee covers all of the tools, training and support you will need to fully learn and begin to implement the unique JumpBunch business model. This includes class management software from ClassJuggler®, an E-Learning platform from Learning Zen, and a private Intranet system for collaboration and references. In fact, there is a host of partner relationships that make it easier for you to stay focused on revenue generating activities. JumpBunch also provides professionally-prepared brochures, direct mail and other marketing tools to help you initiate relationships with daycares, preschools and other potential venues.

Do you need a physical location or storefront to operate a JumpBunch franchise?
No, JumpBunch franchisees make relationships with existing daycare, preschool and elementary schools and other host locations to offer classes at THEIR location, to their existing “customer” base. This is one reason JumpBunch is such a low-cost and low-overhead business model.
What kind of experience do I need?

While experience teaching or running your own business can be helpful, they are not required. The most important qualities for success are a sincere interest in teaching children combined with the motivation and commitment to grow a successful business. Learn more about Who Makes a Good JumpBunch Owner.

Is JumpBunch a full or part-time career?

To own a JumpBunch franchise, you must be prepared to make this a full-time (roughly 40 hours a week) endeavor. The nature of JumpBunch classes allows flexibility from a normal 9-5 career, but to be successful, it really needs to be a full-time business pursuit.

How much can I expect to make?

While we cannot make specific promises about any individual’s potential success, JumpBunch can be a successful, profitable business. To some extent, your company’s performance depends on your personal background and your drive to succeed. But we have refined over the years – and continue to hone – our curriculum, training, systems and support to give every owner the best possible environment for success.

What age groups does JumpBunch serve?
A great advantage of this concept is that it serves a broad audience – children from 18 months to 12 years old can participate in a variety of JumpBunch programs. Learn more about Our Business Model.
What is the turnaround time to get started?

From your initial inquiry, you can be generating revenue in as little as three months. This allows time for the application and screening process, training and all other startup functions. Learn more about the Ownership Process.

What states is JumpBunch licensed in?
JumpBunch is legally registered in most states. We are working through the rigorous process to be registered in all fifty states and territories. If you make an inquiry, we will confirm that we are registered to offer a franchise in your state. If not, check back because we should finish the approval in all states soon. If you are considering any other franchises, for your protection, make sure they are legally registered in your state.
Is a franchise available in my area?
We have many territories still open. Even if we have locations in your state, there are typically large areas still available. Contact us to see if your area is still open.
Is JumpBunch interested in international franchising?
Yes! We currently have a Master Franchise in Saudi Arabia, and are looking for Master Franchise Opportunities around the world. Learn more about our International franchises.
