3. Gravity UK - fitness meets fun

Nothing has injected fun into fitness like the trampoline park, and for park operators, that’s not a hard sell. In these days of retail uncertainty, trampoline parks can provide an answer for the high street, one which has high returns and offers a sustainable business model. Successful fitness concepts keep things fresh by offering new equipment on a regular basis, maintaining levels of interest and enthusiasm and encouraging new members when word of mouth spreads the news of a particularly novel or useful addition. Among the ways Gravity UK keeps customers coming back are its inclusion of such extras as inflatable obstacle courses, street golf, ‘Clip and Climb’ and a tower jump.

Master franchisees/investors with Gravity UK get a dedicated exclusive territory to promote and maximise, meaning they won’t be competing with another Gravity UK franchise in this area. As a master franchisee, you will be your own boss, and enjoy complete control of your own business empire. The master franchisee will continuously sell franchises and build his own sites, fully supporting his franchisees in the process. Not only can being a master franchisee be very profitable for you, you will also be an influential part of your franchise’s network.
