In some industries, customers are willing to give new brands a chance—like buying a shirt from a boutique store or trying a new bakery. But when it comes to their kids’ health and safety, parents aren’t willing to take those risks.
When parents enroll their children in a physical program like gymnastics, dance or karate, they need to know that they’re in good hands. That’s why so many families turn to The Little Gym, one of the most well-known children’s enrichment brands with decades of experience! Thanks to our national and international growth, our name has become synonymous with safety and fun. For new franchisees opening a location of their own, the trust you earn by being part of our family is priceless.
Trust is crucial in kids’ activities
As with any sport or physical activity, parents who enroll their kids in active experiences like gymnastics or dance want to be sure that they’ll be supervised by trained instructors and the equipment their children use is safe and well-maintained. And, let’s face it, sometimes children take a little coaxing to really feel comfortable. By establishing that sense of trust at each child’s individual trust level and building on that, instructors are best able to create a memorable experience for the child.
Trust can be earned in a few different ways, perhaps the most common of which is brand recognition and experience.
The Little Gym’s growth has positioned us for success
The Little Gym falls perfectly into that “brand recognition” trust-building category. We have over 400 locations around the world, meaning millions of global customers know and love our business.
Our international growth and renowned rankings have positioned us at the top of the kids’ gym franchise pyramid. Even if they haven’t visited us before, many parents have at least heard our name, either from our marketing efforts, their child’s school, or other families. This helps plant the seed of trust in our customers’ minds.
Once they dig deeper, families learn that The Little Gym was founded in 1976 by a former gymnast and kinesiologist. That expertise, combined with four decades of parent feedback and innovation, has helped us build a safe, enriching, and entertaining menu of programs for kids.
Additionally, The Little Gym is selective about who we award franchises to. Every one of our owners must share our passion for kids and remain dedicated to our collective mission. This ensures that every location is operated by a top-notch team that will deliver on The Little Gym’s promises to families.
Combined, all of these things have built a powerhouse brand that families know, trust, and love. Kids know they’ll have fun in our classes, and parents know their children will be safe and well cared for every day. Each new franchisee who joins The Little Gym family reaps the benefits of this trust, which brings in new families every day.
