Pump It Up Franchise Information

Pump It Up is a franchise for a business providing inflatable entertainment centers to parties and events.

It was founded in 2000 and started franchising in 2001. They say that the missing ingredient in a party is the “air”. They will turn your party into a bouncing party and they will create private arenas of fun inflatables. Bounce houses, obstacle courses and slides are only a few of the choices of inflatables that they have. They attend to events like mom’s play groups, team parties, field trips, special events, fundraisers, corporate team building, and this is besides the birthday parties. They now have 158 locations in the United States.

The PumpStart Structured Play program is aimed to help develop your child’s physical abilities and social skills with the use of bouncing, jumping, games, and sing-a-longs. The Jump-N-Art program mixes the child’s inner artist with playing games, enjoying snacks, and bouncing.
