20 Apr Amazing Athletes Opens its 100th Franchise Location!
National preschool enrichment program, Amazing Athletes, celebrates the opening of its centesimal franchise location in Seattle, WA on April 6. 2015
Franklin, Tennessee-based Amazing Athletes, a national, award-winning preschool sports enrichment franchise, is excited to announce the opening of its 100th franchise location on April 6, 2015 in Seattle Washington.
“The exponential growth we’ve experienced and the overwhelming response to our program over the years has been unbelievable, and we’re thrilled to welcome Grace and Pam Washam into our Amazing family,” said Amazing Athletes co-owner and vice president, Dr. Janee Henderson. “This Seattle franchise marks a huge milestone for our company, and we’re excited to see where this growth will continue to take us in 2015 and beyond.”
What began as a developmental preschool sports program in just 11 preschools in Orange County, California nearly a decade ago has now grown into a thriving network of 100 locally owned, Amazing Athletes-supported businesses across America, spanning 25 states coast to coast.
Founders Glen and Dr. Janee Henderson first started their business in 2003 and soon expanded to a franchise model to cater to the high demand and rapid growth of the business, maintain the quality of its preschool enrichment program, and share the benefits of its enriching youth fitness program with more parents, preschools and kids around the nation.
Now, 12 years since its inception, Amazing Athletes’ award-winning and nationally-endorsed active curriculum is in thousands of classrooms across the United States.
“We feel so grateful to have our program reaching thousands of children every day,” said Henderson. “The lifelong skills they learn in the Amazing Athletes classroom is invaluable, and we are constantly reminded of how wonderful our Amazing Athletes family of franchise owners are to dedicate their careers to this.”
Amazing Athletes fuses two emerging industries – early childhood development and physical activity – to help America combat childhood obesity, develop essential life skills, build lifelong healthy habits, and instill confidence in children at a young age.
“This landmark moment is the culmination of years of passionate dedication from our franchisees who made this growth and success possible,” said Henderson. “We hope to continue this successful progression of our business franchise for many more years to come.”
Amazing Athletes is a Franchise 500® company that has consistently ranked as one of the nation’s top low-cost, home-based franchises to own by Entrepreneur Magazine and Franchise Business Review, has earned numerous franchisee satisfaction awards, and has been deemed a top military-friendly franchise by MilitaryFranchising.com and GI Jobs Magazine thanks to its low start-up cost, high profit return, and exceptional franchisee experience.
