With 15 UK-wide territories established over the last two and a half years, the company, which specialises in sports coaching for children aged 2-10, is aiming to have 24 franchises up and running by the end of the year.
Director Sharon Bassett says: “Our franchisees come from a variety of backgrounds, including the banking and finance industry, general management, retail, joinery and childcare, as well as those with a traditional coaching background and a number who have been home grown as previous A-Star Sports coaches.
PASSIONATE ABOUT SPORT
“The one thing they have in common is that they are passionate about sport and inspiring children to enjoy it for life.”
Sharon adds: “We have set ourselves a very ambitious target of securing a further nine franchisees by the end of the year to make a total of 24, but such is the appeal of our franchise opportunities, not to mention the sheer fun of guiding youngsters into sport and fitness, that we expect to make that challenging target, just as we have beaten our previous growth targets over the last couple of years.”
A-Star Sports has franchises for sale throughout the UK.
“There’s such a buzz around our business at the moment,” Sharon says.
“Franchise enquiries are up by 50 per cent on last year and it is an exciting time to be delivering sports direct to families for this crucial age group.”
