Founder Tom Bunchman started out as a franchisee himself. Over 13 years, he built, managed and maintained a successful business before launching his own unique JumpBunch concept in 1997. Tom crafted an ideal way to tap into this rapidly expanding market niche. Simply put, JumpBunch is a highly effective business model that brings sports to young children in a fun, engaging way. It was clearly the right service at the right time, and given Tom’s years as a franchisee himself, he is uniquely qualified to support and mentor franchisees, allowing each owner to reach their full potential.
From the music to the activities and equipment, every aspect of JumpBunch has been carefully researched and developed to be both fun and beneficial to the development of young minds and bodies. Today, children all over the country, from preschool through sixth grade enjoy a wide variety of JumpBunch programs.
By expanding the JumpBunch concept through a franchise network starting in 2002, Tom and his team have been able to carefully select and train local owners who share the commitment and passion required to grow a business that makes a real positive impact on childhood development.
To this day, the best barometer of success is the feedback heard as children first experience JumpBunch. Invariably, the kids have a great time and it’s clear to parents, teachers and host organizations that the structured activities provide enrichment on several levels.
