In 2000, a daycare owner noticed that the children she cared for weren't getting enough physical activity. The daycare owner knew this was happening at other daycares around the country, too. As a result, she decided to purchase an old school bus and renovate it.

The bus became the basis for the Fun Bus Fitness Fun on Wheels franchise. The daycare owner used the bus as a mobile gym to help children have fun doing more physical activity. Fun Bus Fitness Fun on Wheels experienced enough success in its first few years to begin franchising in 2003.

Since beginning to franchise, Fun Bus Fitness Fun on Wheels has opened several franchises in select states across the United States.
