Flip Out’s humble origins started all the way back in Australia, in 2012, when the brand was a one-hour trampoline park. Natural and organic growth, plus feedback, saw the brand adding more and more features and activities to its locations, giving its customers more value and reasons to visit.
This is why Flip Out is Europe’s number one family entertainment franchise, because it offers something for the entire family, and has proven the quality and cost-effectiveness of its operations for nearly ten years.
Flip Out is in a sweet spot as a high-quality brand with plenty of scope for expansion, and is seeking master franchisees, area developers, single-unit franchisees and investors to help grow the franchise network. Unsurprisingly, the brand has developed extensive relationships with suppliers and developed dependable concepts and systems that are easily replicated.
Unmatched franchise opportunity
Family entertainment is a difficult industry to get right from the outset; it typically always requires an in-depth knowledge of the category, costs and consumers before embarking on any journey to open a location. Fortunately, all Flip Out requires is adventurous and like-minded partners who don’t necessarily need any experience in the family entertainment space.
The brand is in the middle of significant expansion efforts; it plans to open in more European territories, and more than 30 sites worldwide over the next 18 months. This represents a truly ambitious brand that has faith in its concept.
It’s also a recognized and trusted brand with parents and that recognizability helps franchisees when opening, and later on, as its reputation in the area grows.
Franchisees are supported too, which is essential to a smooth opening and operation.
This is why many stay with the brand and deepen their commitment, because of the fantastic support received and the proven model.
“In August 2015 we secured our master franchise in Mexico. It took us six months to find our first location and a further three months to build the site,” said Julio Osorio, Mexico’s master franchisee. “Having opened it and proven the concept locally, we now have achieved a further six franchise openings across Mexico and have plans for huge expansion over the next two years.
“Flip Out has been great at supporting us during that time with their knowledge and experience. We believe in the brand, and the future of the business.”
Family fun is always in-season
Flip Out parks are a fantastic source of clean, fun and positive entertainment for the entire family. The fact that sites are indoor and situated in popular locations with lots of footfall means Flip Out locations enjoy custom all year round.
That comes as no surprise, considering the array of activities one can take part in at Flip Out locations. The family entertainment franchise started out as a trampoline park, but as customers expressed their love for the brand and a desire to do more, features like bumper cars, ice rinks, laser quest, crazy golf, arcades, party rooms and even spaces for adults have been integrated into the model.
With over ten million customers visiting the brand’s 60 locations a year dotted around the U.K. and the world, opening a Flip Out location is a great opportunity not to be missed.
