What is We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym?
We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym (WRTS) is a franchise opportunity that provides sensory-safe play for children with autism, special needs, and neurotypical development. Each of our gym locations feature specially designed, occupational therapy equipment, which aids children in the improvement of sensory functions while they learn and play. Our gyms offer a variety of inclusive programs designed specifically so all kids can participate, no matter their neurological development.
Why should I open a franchise instead of starting my own kids gym?
A franchise offers you the protection of a proven business model. We have been through the bumps and bruises so you don’t have to. A franchise allows for a transparent business model that you can see works and can easily be applied. You will have the support of a corporation full of like-minded individuals, the brand trademarks and copywriting, proven training, and an extended family of gym owners to lean on when you need to.
What makes the WRTS franchise package unique?
Our franchise package is a one-stop shop for marketing, social media and web support, and training. We have corporate offices that are based on both coasts that can assist with whatever needs you may have. In many franchises you would have to find your own marketing and website support. At WRTS this is provided for you.
As a location owner what flexibility do I have?
Each WRTS location is unique, meaning they each have specific guidelines regarding the ten required pieces of sensory-safe equipment and the programs that are offered, but each location offers a unique size and can offer a variety of programs. We have locations that are small and made for smaller children and some that are wide open with lots of places for therapists to come and use the facility with a child. Some of our gyms are focused on specific types of therapy and some offer a variety of age-group programs from toddler to high school. You have the ability to create programs and offer classes as long as they have been approved by the corporate offices on either coast. We encourage you to be creative, to find new ways to help children, and to offer what is best for your community.
Does WRTS have a good community presence?
Yes, the community is what helps make our gym locations possible. We routinely host a variety of community-based events each month, which are great for networking and developing relationships with other business owners in your area. WRTS strives to build a community in every area that it’s located — as well as worldwide — to provide support, inclusion, and opportunities for children who have ASD and their parents.
