Urban Air signs 19 new franchise agreements in past 90 days
Leading indoor adventure park operator Urban Air Adventure Park is gearing up for record-breaking growth in the year ahead through the signing of multiple franchise agreements that are set to bring a total of 19 new parks to 10 states. In April alone, the brand inked 12 new franchise deals and in the past 90 days, Urban Air has surpassed the total number of new stores signed compared to all of 2020.
Notably, Urban Air is seeing a spike in multi-unit, multi-brand franchisees with deep roots in the childcare space diversifying its franchise portfolios by bringing Urban Air to their local communities. Of the 19 new agreements this year, half are with current franchisees with The Goddard School, The Learning Experience and Primrose Schools. The other half come from a mix of new franchisees and current Urban Air operators who are already seeing the importance of options in the community for post-COVID active socialization and family-friendly activities.
“It’s an exciting time for our brand to have already exceeded last year’s numbers when it comes to signing new park locations. By partnering with these ambitious business owners, we’re committed to strengthening Urban Air’s commitment to delivering meaningful experiences that impact the lives of every kid in communities across the country,” said Josh Wall, Urban Air’s EVP and Chief Franchise Officer. “As our country starts to reopen with the increased need for peer-to-peer interaction and physical activity for kids, we’re confident 2021 will truly be a tremendous year for Urban Air.”
With more than 150 parks now open and 60 in development, Urban Air is seeking to continue its momentum, looking for driven leaders that are looking for a higher purpose than just profits and motivated to engage in their local community through social interactions, exercise, and elevated play for each kid that walks through their doors. With 50 percent of franchisees operating fully remote, Urban Air offers a partnership flexible to the franchisee’s preferences including many facets of support to build better experiences and ultimately grow.
