Profit Centers for your Kids Sports and Fitness Business

While the curriculum and physical activities vary to provide the best learning environment for each age group, the JumpBunch concept remains the same. Preschool sports and fitness classes have typically seen the greatest demand, but depending on your interests and the opportunities in your market, other profit centers may prove more popular.

Toddler, 15-24 months – 30 minutes, weekly class
Toddler sports and fitness is a growing profit center, Moms are eager to encourage their child’s social and physical development. JumpBunch’s age appropriate physical activities and curriculum move quickly at this age to grab their attention and keep these young minds engaged. Toddlers may take a few sessions to really respond, but at this age their improved coordination and confidence can be dramatic and extremely rewarding for coaches and parents alike.
Preschool or Daycare, 2-6 years old – 30-45 minutes, weekly class
This is an ideal age to introduce children to sports and fitness, allowing for our broadest curriculum of over 70 unique activities. Parents and school directors see the value in happy kids who make obvious progress in coordination, strength and sports awareness.  The "JB Sports" option even offers the option to focus on one sport, such as kids soccer or baseball for kids, for more than one week through our clinics.
School Age Before and After-Care, 45-60 minutes, weekly class
This is JumpBunch for big kids. As schools reduce their gym programs and add extracurricular care, this option brings structured physical activity with a focus on youth sports and kids fitness back into a child’s day. In addition, a growing number of private schools contract with JumpBunch to provide their full gym / physical education programs.  We offer three curriculum options: the JB Sports month-long concentration on each sport, a standard JumpBunch weekly introduction to different sports activities, or a 60-Second Challenge program that is both fun and physically demanding.
Birthday Parties, 2-12 years old
Families and friends of families that enjoy JumpBunch at school or daycare can bring the fun home for a birthday party filled with fun games, kids sports and activities. This is a great way to increase your interaction and revenue with audiences you’ve already built as well as introduce the youth fitness program to new families. Kids choose their favorite sport and you can provide a complete, themed party experience. Moms love it because JumpBunch is far more cost effective than going to a typical party destination.
Summer/Seasonal Programs, 2-12 years old
1-3 hour kids physical fitness classes offered daily, weekly, or custom. JumpBunch has created variations on its programs to create a great added attraction for summer or special holiday camps and in-house field trips. They offer flexibility to work for different program schedules. This offering is a great way to balance out the year and maintain relationships with schools and families year-round.
How Much Money Can I Make?

How-much-money-can-I-make-600x749.jpgWhile we cannot make specific promises about any individual’s potential success, JumpBunch can be a successful, profitable business working with kids. 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 Does it Cost?

The initial franchise fee is $30,000 for a protected 350,000 population territory.

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.  During our Discovery Day we detail many of these tools and demonstrate our valuable partner resources that are in place.

  • Royalties – JumpBunch’s royalty fees are comparable with other franchises that offer a similar level of training, curriculum, partner relationships and ongoing support.
  • Additional Start-Up Expenses – 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, and class equipment.
Is My Territory Available?

We have many territories still open. Even if we have locations in your state, there are typically large areas still available. In fact, adjacent territories mean schools are more likely to know about JumpBunch and be receptive to your offering. More densely populated, urban areas allow for multiple exclusive territories with plenty of potential. Contact us to ask about your specific region.

How Do I Find New Customers?

Instead of selling directly to parents, JumpBunch owners build relationships with school directors. You essentially tap into an existing “customer base” with each school who agrees to host JumpBunch.
