How Does the WRTS Gym Franchise Business Model Work?
We Rock the Spectrum is the only public, sensory-safe gym that caters to all children ages one year and older. The WRTS business model has been tested in many different communities, with many types of owners, and consistently proves successful. Once you become a WRTS Kid’s Gym franchise owner, you will become a part of the growing We Rock community where you will have full access to administrative resources and proven marketing professionals, as well as a large professional support team. These professionals have extensive experience working with WRTS franchise gyms and will help to ensure your sensory gym is successful. With corporate offices on both coasts, We Rock the Spectrum strives to support its franchise owners with whatever they may need.
Owners of We Rock the Spectrum Franchise are supported not only by their corporate team, but also by the families and members of their community. Owners are able to provide an opportunity to children on the spectrum that otherwise would not exist with their sensory gym. Because of the flexibility allowed with the We Rock the Spectrum Franchise, owners are able to provide their communities with unique classes, Open Play, parties, camps and more. Some owners even offer programs with Occupational Therapists (OT) and/or Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapists at their gym. With We Rock the Spectrum, we supply the infrastructure for success and leave the creativity and fun to you.
How To Get Started With WRTS
To get started on opening your own We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym, you will first need to sign our NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement). After which, we will give you a call to discuss your qualifications and give you an overview with our Franchise Developer. If you meet all of our requirements and we think it’s a good fit, we will send you the FDD to review, schedule some follow up calls to discuss, send you an application and run a background check. Then you will have an interview with our CEO and Founder, Dina Kimmel, and lastly we set up validation calls with various owners so you can ask them first-hand what it’s like to open a WRTS gym.
