Our unique buses are refurbished, retired school buses that have been transformed into safe, colorful and age-appropriate fitness buses for children ages 2-7. Whether we are bringing the FUN to weekly fitness sessions at daycares, with professionally developed lesson plans, or we are providing the FUN and entertainment at a child’s birthday party or special event, the children are always beyond excited to see the BIG GREEN BUS roll up with age-appropriate music, mini-fitness equipment, slides, swings, and fitness-focused games and activities to support appropriate development and encourage their love of making fitness FUN.
Our business model offers FUNtrepreneurs a quick start-up, multiple revenue streams, recurring revenue and strong scalability. Being mobile means low overhead, and quick ROI making it a very strong investment. And while the profitability is an attractive component of this opportunity, our FUNtrepreneurs seem to value most the great work/life balance and the positive impact they make on the lives of so many young children. With a strong brand following and little direct competition, our President, Stacey Kimmins instantly recognized the industry potential in FUN BUS. Since Stacey took over, FUN BUS has moved toward a management model, allowing Franchise Owners to capitalize on the scalability of the business.This also allows for growth and development, with some FUNtrepreneurs running up to FIVE busses.
