Here’s what you need to know if you’re interested in opening a Kidokinetics franchise.
Children who engage in sports get to exercise and make friends as they develop skills to last them a lifetime. Kidokinetics supports all-around sports fitness for kids of all ages. Physical education is essential, and Kidokinetics feels it's never too early to jump into a pair of shorts, get sweaty, and have fun.
Started by Terri Braun in 2000, Kidokinetics specializes in providing elite high-energy sports and fitness classes for young boys and girls. By providing all the sports equipment children need to play, Kidokinetics may bring fun to life anywhere in the community.
After beginning to franchise in 2006, Kidokinetics has expanded to multiple locations throughout the United States.
Why You May Want To Start a Kidokinetics Franchise
Kidokinetics is popular among parents, teachers, and kids who appreciate its positive efforts in building confidence and a love for physical exercise. Model franchisees are people who can take the program's missions to heart and inspire kids to go from start to finish at their own pace.
If you believe that every kid deserves a sporting chance, Kidokinetics could be an excellent franchise for you. The Kidokinetics business model provides a strong foundation for franchisees to grow while changing the lives of children, one exercise at a time.
Opening a Kidokinetics franchise may offer a more predictable outcome than investing in a completely new brand that may struggle to thrive in an already crowded and competitive industry.
What Might Make Kidokinetics Franchise a Good Choice?
Kidokinetics believes it is more than a sports and fitness program. Its commitment and dedication to the welfare of children may make it an outstanding organization. Kidokinetics works around school schedules and local programs, bringing sporting activities and fun straight to the kids.
Franchisees are responsible for creating ideas for classes, lesson plans, and programs to keep kids proactive during playtime. Regardless of a child's ability and level, Kidokinetics assures a safe and non-competitive fun environment for learning.
To be part of the Kidokinetics team, you should make sure you're financially ready for an initial investment made up of a franchise fee and other startup costs. In addition, you should prepare yourself for ongoing fees that will include advertising, royalty, and potential renewal fees. Franchisees will also need to meet the company's set net worth and liquid capital requirements.
How To Open a Kidokinetics Franchise
Make sure to research the brand and your local area to see if Kidokinetics would do well in your community. Before making any financial commitment or signing an agreement, you must perform your due diligence and establish if this is the right opportunity for you. As part of your due diligence, you may want to speak to existing franchisees and ask the Kidokinetics franchising team questions.
