    About KidStage

    KidStage is offering unique and fun-filled franchises. Our opportunity can be a home-based business in which you offer KidStage classes which actually take place in your local schools, day care centers, senior citizen centers, boys and girls clubs, YMCA's etc. No high costs of leasing or purchasing space. You will find KidStage a profitable and high-demand business.

    KidStage is a complete "Performing Arts Learning Center" using ordinary classrooms as our "theatre" in which we teach children self-expression and creativity, as well as give them confidence through their participation in theatrical productions. With overcrowded schools, over-worked teachers and tight school budgets, the extra time and effort needed to help students is practically non-existent. KidStage was formed specifically to solve this growing problem. We have spent over 15 years developing solutions to assist in helping children.

    The success of our programs has propelled us to the point that we are now offering Franchises in selected areas. We are seeking creative, enthusiastic individuals interested in establishing a successful business while at the same time making a positive difference in the lives of children. Most importantly, theatre experience is not necessary!

    About Pump It Up

    We are the franchise you have been looking for! We created the indoor inflatable party center market in 2000 when we moved inflatable recreation from the backyards and fairgrounds into a private indoor party facility in Pleasanton, California. Our franchisees have made us the largest franchise chain in the children's inflatable market. We work with the nation's leading franchise experts and partners in constantly improving on how we do our job. We have created the Pump It Up Birthday Club - an exciting loyalty program. We have our own proprietary inflatables and have engaged our manufacturing partner to create for us new and innovative inflatables to keep our facilities fresh. Our new Pump It Up Jr. and Pump It Up Minis are our latest creations. We have the right concept to delight children and meet the needs of today's busy parents. Our proprietary private, indoor inflatable party facilities provide parents with everything they need to entertain their children and to create memories for a lifetime. We provide an action-packed party environment - even without a special occasion. Join us for a day of discovery at one of the fastest growing franchise opportunities in America. To begin the process, call 1-866-635-0029. After you become more familiar with us, you will likely be invited to join us for Discovery Day in Pleasanton, California (near Oakland, San Jose and San Francisco) where you will meet with us and our team and to ask us questions about us and how you can fit into our franchise family. We interview you and get a sense whether you have the "right stuff" to be a franchisee. We look forward to you becoming a part of the Pump It Up team.
