BK’s Gymnastics goes to franchise model and heads north
BK’s Gymnastics has announced that the brand now has franchise opportunities available.
There are currently seven company-owned specialty BK’s Gymnastics centres for children around Melbourne and Sydney, and with membership numbers growing rapidly, the time to franchise the brand is now says BK’s Gymnastics Chief Executive Mark Rendell.
“We have seen a major growth in memberships over the last two years – up 225%. The last six months alone have seen an 30% rise is members across our current sites at Marrickville, Bacchus March, Bayside, Craigieburn, Hawthorn, Hoppers Crossing and Noble Park,” said Mark.
“Caroline Springs has just opened in July and we’re looking to secure 10 new franchise sites in the coming 12 months. With our current membership growth levels and the backing of Belgravia giving franchisees confidence in the offering, we’re very optimistic about reaching this target.”
BK’s Gymnastics also has its eyes firmly set on QLD, with the recent announcement that Brisbane will host the 2032 Olympics, and has entered into a joint venture with Allstars, an established gymnastics club in Toowoomba, with the current owner Vicki Flamsteed named the Queensland CEO of the new joint venture.
Allstars in the largest gymnastics centre in the region with more than 1200 participants per week and will now be 50% owned by BK’s Gymnastics.
In her new role as the Queensland joint venture CEO, Vicki will be responsible for the strategy to grow the BK’s Gymnastics business throughout the state.
Richlands and Springfield are the first new sites earmarked to open in Queensland, with Richlands being a children’s ‘super leisure centre’ featuring an indoor pool offering children’s swimming lessons under the same roof as the gymnastics classes.
“Heading further north was the natural next step for BK’s Gymnastics and partnering with an established business who has an understanding of the local market will greatly assist this growth,” said Mark.
