What is We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym for All Kids?
We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym is an international gym franchise with new locations opening each month in the United States as well as abroad. We Rock the Spectrum (WRTS) is committed to providing an inclusive environment to foster learning, exploration, and sensory-safe activities for neuro-typical children and children on the spectrum.
We’re THE Autism-Friendly Franchise: A Sensory-Safe Indoor Playground
Each We Rock the Spectrum gym comes with ten pieces of specialized, sensory-safe, therapeutic play equipment that aids children with their developmental growth. With a significant rise in the number of children being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Sensory Processing Disorder, the need for more WRTS indoor play franchise locations is growing rapidly.
WRTS Kid’s Gym is not only a sensory gym, it is more importantly, a community and place where children of all abilities and their families can come and feel at home.
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.
