Soccer Shots Franchise Information
Soccer Shots is a franchise for a business providing fitness programs for children through soccer. It was created in 1999 and started franchising in 2005. It was founded by Jeremy Sorzano and Jason Webb who were teammates in soccer both in college and professionally.
They started the business because they wanted to earn some money during the off-season. They have the passion for soccer and to help kids live healthy and fit. They opened their first location in Charlotte, North Carolina and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Because of its success, they received requests from former teammates and friends to franchise the business. They agreed to it and soon, they had franchises in Ohio, Delaware, Florida, and Pennsylvania.
It was in 2009 that Justin Bredeman joined them. He was a former teammate in college. With his eight years of experience with franchising in Auntie Ann’s where he handled 800 franchises and five years of running his own Soccer Shots, he will help the two handle the Soccer Shots franchising. Soccer Shots Global Goals was founded in 2009. It is a non-profit arm of the business that helps youth in the United States and worldwide through soccer. They now have 75 locations in the United States, one in Canada, and six locations that is company owned.
