Lava Island is making a name for itself with full-service family entertainment centers
Services for families and children are among the fastest-growing segments in franchising, particularly children’s play spaces. Lava Island, a children’s entertainment/play center company, already has had a positive impact in this sector. The international response to this young company has been very positive.
Lava Island combines a trampoline park, an indoor play facility, climbing walls, a ninja course, themed private party rooms, an in-house restaurant, and a ‘volcano’ slide. The company’s mission is to stimulate children’s bodies and minds in an engaging, fun, welcoming environment that delights both children and parents.
“Customers regularly tell us that they prefer Lava Island because we provide a wide variety of active- play solutions and fun activities for children of all ages and their families,” said Boyd Henderson, Lava Island’s CEO. “My background is in indoor trampoline park designing and installation, and I felt that children and families deserved better than what was available.” A
Lava Island locations have on-site restaurants that offer a delicious, family-focused menu and co-branded items such as Starbucks coffee. The restaurants also support on-location party centers, which host daily themed private parties.
Lava Island’s multiple entertainment options provide franchisees with multiple revenue streams that maximize the use of the physical facility, such as timed admission, mandatory specialized socks, branded merchandise, food and beverages, private party rooms, and events areas for schools, teams and community groups.
“I’m a working mom, and Lava Island is a convenient way for families to participate in physical activities together, and bring friends to play too,” said Celeste Henderson, Lava Island’s COO. “Parents love the themed private party rooms because they can host exciting memorable parties without the worry of set-up or clean-up.”
CONSISTENT QUALITY ASSURANCE
Lava Island’s corporate team designs and builds each site to exacting sanitary and safety standards. These sites can be designed for either horizontal or vertical (multi-level) buildings, which are particularly important in dense city locations and anywhere that inclement or hot weather would adversely affect outdoor events. Accordingly, the company offers a unique financing package to qualified investors worldwide.
Parents invest in their children regardless of the general economy. Lava Island provides parents, children, and their families with fun, welcoming, and convenient environments where they can celebrate and play together. Lava Island franchisees proudly do important, meaningful work that children and their families enjoy.
