Franchise Success Stories
Jeff Platt, founder of the Sky Zone franchise, grew up in Los Angeles. Initially Sky Zone was intended to become a new sport, however, it did not meet much success. Platt and his father, who initially founded Sky Zone as a sport, decided to open Sky Zone up to the public.
“Our first location was located about seven miles from the Las Vegas Strop,” Platt told Fox News. “The business was driven by locals, not tourists.”
Two years after the first location was opened, Platt opened another in St. Louis. Using more precision in market analysis, the St. Louis location eventually became more successful than the original. According to Platt, the location and facility were much improved with the second opening.
“We chose a higher-income area in St. Louis and a nice, clean-looking new building,” Platt told Fox News. “It was a bigger and fully air-conditioned facility that had more courts.”
Before long, the franchise gained traction on national TV. According to Platt, inquiries from across the world followed close behind. Once Platt opened his third location in California, he decided to franchise Sky Zone.
“Operating a franchise is totally different than operating retail stores,” said Platt. “Franchising seemed attractive because it was a way to scale quickly.”
