DALLAS, Oct. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Less than three months after Snapology, the number one children's STEAM franchise, was acquired by franchise growth-focused platform company Unleashed Brands, the companies have already rolled out a new model that will offer franchisees the option to add efficiently-designed Snapology locations inside busy Urban Air Adventure Parks across the country. The move allows franchisees to serve more families in their communities by helping kids learn, play and grow.
Urban Air is the largest indoor adventure park operator in the world with features such as intense ropes courses, Urban Air's Sky Rider Indoor Coaster, Battle Beams, wall-to-wall trampolines, dodgeball courts, electric Go-Karting, obstacle courses and more. Snapology encourages social skills and teamwork by teaching science, technology, engineering, art, math and literacy concepts in a fun way. The brand uses research-based curriculum, designed to be inclusive to all learning abilities with a hands-on teaching approach that uses LEGO® Bricks and other building toys, along with coding, video game design and robotics that encourages the perfect mix of play, academic enrichment and social development.
"Our new model gives franchisees the tremendous opportunity to put two category-leading brands in one space to encourage kids to learn, play and grow inside four walls," said Josh Wall, Chief Growth Officer for Unleashed Brands. "We're excited this new opportunity gives Urban Air operators more exposure to families and helps fill even more dayparts. Snapology has primarily been a mobile business model, which makes this launch even more exciting as we expand the brand's brick-and-mortar presence in many ways over the next year."
With a modest investment of less than a $160,000, an Urban Air franchise operator will be able to retrofit at least two existing party rooms into a state-of-the-art Snapology Discovery Center 2.0. This will allow franchisees to serve families throughout the school year by offering category-leading STEAM curriculum during the week and themed birthday parties on the weekends. Since announcing the launch of the program, a majority of Urban Air franchisees have expressed initial interest in adding a Snapology licenses in 2021.
The new Snapology model inside Urban Air parks will also launch a membership program specific to Snapology, a move that benefits area families looking for supplemental STEAM education for their kids. Franchisees will also benefit from summer camps that can combine Snapology programming and curriculum with Urban Air's attractions.
This year, Urban Air ranked as the No. 1 entertainment franchise in Entrepreneur Magazine's Annual Franchise 500 list, the world's first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking. Snapology was ranked as the No. 1 children's enrichment franchise on the same list.
