Health & Beauty, Fitness, Travel & Leisure, Leisure/Entertainment
The Walljam business model takes its inspiration from traditional popular ball games, such as football, tennis, basketball and rugby. Using technology, players can get involved in exciting new ball games, with the help of LED activated sensor targets that can be affixed to a wall or panel.
The platform offered by Walljam is simple, but effective, and gives users a great way to get fit, enjoy a social activity and improve technical skills. The business has grown across the UK since it was originally founded because the brand offers a more flexible and adaptable way of bringing physical activity into new spaces, and their model is adaptable to virtually any size venue or location.
The franchise can be a fantastic opportunity for anyone interested in getting involved with sports or the local community, with the potential to grow the business at a level that feels right for you.
The main head office for the Walljam franchise is located in Hertfordshire.
There are opportunities to find franchise territories all over the UK. For information on specific locations, contact the franchise team directly for up to date details.
A Walljam franchise can be very flexible and adaptable, and existing franchisees have developed the business model to suit their own goals and objectives. There are a number of different pathways, and franchisees may want to take on one or more of the options available, or even come up with their own ideas.
Potential options for running the Walljam franchise business include offering activities or running events at community or local leisure centres and groups, or working with local schools and sporting groups within the education sector. You can also develop the franchise into the commercial sector, for example, by working with conference events, trade exhibitions, and other spaces, where visitors might enjoy a fun and novel way to take a break from the main activity.
To start a Walljam franchise, you’ll need to invest a total amount of £65,000 (excluding VAT). This includes a one off franchise fee of £20,000, as well as £45,000 to purchase a single Walljam unit. There is also the option to lease this instead.
It may be possible to get financial support for some of the investment amount required to start a Walljam franchise, from most major banks and lenders.
To start a franchise with Walljam, it’s helpful to have some background in the sports industry, or in event management. While full training will be provided with all aspects of the franchise, it’s essential to have a strong passion for physical activity in some form, even if you are not professionally trained in the field.
Successful franchisees should also have excellent people skills, and the ability to communicate and connect well with others. You’ll also be expected to transport your own Walljam unit around yourself, so you should be able to drive a vehicle with a trailer attached. You should have a relevant driving license, to permit you to drive a truck or other suitable vehicle.
All franchisees with Walljam receive a comprehensive training programme, which covers all aspects of their business model. To start with, you’ll be invited to a two day intensive at their headquarters in Stevenage, where you are led through the Walljam business model, as well as learning how to carry out essential business tasks, such as managing accounts, bills and invoicing, and practical insight into how to set up and carry out Walljam’s range of services. Following the initial intensive, franchise owners will also be provided with further training sessions to help them progress their business later on.
Walljam also provide marketing support for all of their franchisees, with a template to build a tailored Walljam website for each territory. The brand’s main corporate team manage all digital marketing activities to help promote franchisees to their target markets as effectively as possible, but they will also support franchise owners with guidance on using social media, and how to use sponsorship and advertisement programmes effectively.
Walljam can offer a potentially lucrative opportunity for anyone interested in starting a franchise business in the events industry. The market itself is worth £42 billion, and Walljam’s unique model gives franchisees the ability to access a broad range of the events sector, offering services to corporate events, university fairs and schools. There is also the option to provide tailored sessions, such as coaching sessions for after school clubs and sports clubs, as well as private events such as working with birthday parties, and the brand has already developed a positive and well trusted reputation amongst its existing customer base.
With a broad range of options available and an innovative service offering, the Walljam franchise can offer an exciting and scalable business model for franchise owners of all backgrounds.
