We will fill in any gaps with the program needs and theming elements. *Because we know what it is like to take a risk and have walked that path before. *Because we embrace simplicity and tradition and make it great. *Because we are rolling the calculated dice on you purchasing an additional Hero Trailer (or two) rather than taking any of your hard earned money every month. *Because we are a business family and we help each other succeed. We are not a one-time deal, but a relationship. That is why we choose to offer as much as we can for less. We are looking at the big picture for everyone.

New Price! Profitable Children's Play & Party Center - Turnkey!!!

Chicago, IL

This business, opened in 2010, is an excellent northern Chicago suburban location of a successful children’s entertainment franchise. It takes full advantage of the growing trend for “out of the house” parties by providing parents a clean, safe, private, fun, and inexpensive outlet to host birthdays or special events. Parents block a time for their party and place a deposit. At the time of the party the balance is paid. Parties are well structured and have the children play for a specified amount of time in the play arenas. The party then moves to an available party room for food, etc. Revenues are driven by room rentals and party supplies (pizza, soda, etc.). The owner currently spends approximately 30-35 hours per week at the location, and utilizes a staff of 10-12 part-time party managers. There is support for systems and operation guidelines from the franchisor, and a key advantage of this business is that the franchisor is paid a flat fee – there are no percentage royalties! The business is housed in a very well appointed, superbly built out 12,000 square foot facility. The facility includes a large play arena as well as four private party rooms. All equipment and attractions are in excellent shape. The landlord has expressed a willingness to discuss a new lease and terms with the new owner. The business shows beautifully, which is a key marketing tool as parents want their children in a clean and safe environment. Word of mouth is excellent, and the company effectively advertisers online. After seven years the owner has family considerations to attend to. All the heavy lifting has been done, and the business has a solid – and still growing – revenue base. Excellent growth opportunities for a new owner/operator, and the ability to get into an affordable business (start up costs would be twice the current asking price!) and start earning money on Day 1.

People who can appreciate ways to de-stress and at the same time have fun with friends are a perfect fit for this business. The business model caters to people who get the health benefits of certain historical Eastern European style relaxation methods while also dining on great food will really be excited about this business. This business was started by a seasoned professional with long-term experience in the restaurant and other related industries. This owner has an unparalleled reputation and the knack for fine-tuning his business entities to enhance the profitability as much as possible for each given circumstance. This business is very unique and nothing else exactly like it even exists in the entire greater Chicago Metro area or even Midwest Region. There are a few other businesses that operate in a very similar way to an extent and would be considered competitors in the broad sense, though their proximity, size, and model make them a non-issue as they are more cost prohibitive to operate and have less to offer the customer. This business model has multiple income streams that allow for a somewhat diverse revenue model as compared to most models related to food & beverage, retail, recreation, on-site services, etc. The business is housed in a building owned by the current operator/owner of the business and the interior space is approximately 4200 sq ft. The interior is divided into two distinct sections where a fast-casual style restaurant operates as a part of the business and serves as one key revenue stream and the other portion of the business is devoted to widely sought after recreation and relaxation facilities and/or services. The attached real estate accommodates approximately 20 cars on-site with ample street parking. The location is also conducive to public transportation.
