Hi-Five Sports Franchising – the number one youth sports entertainment franchise in the U.S. – has announced plans to continue its national expansion by offering new franchise opportunities. This effort reflects the brand’s recent increase in popularity due to the urgent need for children to become more physically active and disconnect from technology. By enriching the lives of children through team sports in a fun and non-intimidating manner, Hi-Five Sports’ mission is resonating with families across the country and setting them up for exceptional growth in the future. The brand currently has 17 locations operating throughout nine states and aims to open five Hi-Five Sports Zones and five Hi-Five Sports club locations within the next 12 months.
Hi-Five Sports was founded in the north shore suburbs of Chicago by Marvin Tuchman in 1990 with the goal of providing the highest quality youth sports experience. After seeing the demand for this unique concept increase, Marvin’s sons got involved with the brand. Ryan Tuchman decided to leave his successful corporate career in 2006 and work with his brother Danny to develop year-round team sports programming. After opening new locations in Arizona and California, Ryan founded Hi-Five Sports Franchising to scale the brand across the US and allow other like-minded entrepreneurs to get involved in their communities.
“Children and families deserve a safe and fun space for their kids to play and learn sports in a positive light,” said Ryan Tuchman, CEO, and Founder of Hi-Five Sports Franchising. “Learning about team sports the Hi-Five way can teach life lessons and foster personal growth that is often forgotten because of the competitive nature of today’s youth sports programs. I’m thrilled that we’re changing that mindset and expanding so we can continue boosting children’s confidence and ambition through team sports at the national level.”
Hi-Five Sports provides children ages 3 – 14 years old with a multitude of innovative and engaging sports programs that encourage teamwork, respect, and leadership. Franchisees can choose to open the brand’s retail model known as the Hi-Five Sports Zone or a home-based model renting third-party facilities to run all of the brand’s documented programs through the HI-Five Sports Club model. The Hi-Five Sports Zone is the latest innovation in youth sports and is the only concept of its kind. With design specifications tailored towards younger children, each location has custom field sizes, adjustable basketball hoops, and a loveable mascot named Hi-Five Murphy. All team members at Hi-Five are passionate about the positive results that can be achieved by introducing children to team sports the Hi-Five way. The brand has been proudly providing families with fun and transformative youth sports entertainment for over three decades.
Parents’ minds are at ease knowing that their children can socialize with friends, learn valuable leadership skills, proper sportsmanship, and maintain a healthy lifestyle. At Hi-Five Sports, children are encouraged to discover and pursue their own interests as they explore a multi-sensory environment, including obstacle courses, state-of-the-art basketball facilities, and equipment from every major sport under the supervision of the experienced Hi-Five Team.
“Youth sports have been around for a long time, but they haven’t been promoted enough as a vehicle for shaping the well-being of children and being a form of entertainment,” said Tuchman. “For 30 years, we’ve been using team sports to teach kids how to take care of themselves and have good values, which is something that we know every community can benefit from and we’re excited to continue doing so in new markets.”
Hi-Five Sports is now actively seeking family-oriented individuals with a passion for mentoring children that want to own and operate a much-needed business in their local community. Potential franchisees can benefit from Hi-Five Sports’ existing franchise network which has an established reputation, proven management practices, and ongoing corporate support. The initial investment to open a Hi-Five Sports location varies between models. The Hi-Five Sports Club’s initial investment is between $25,450-$56,350 with a franchise fee of $12,900. The Hi-Five Sports Zone’s initial investment is between $135,115-$554,165 with a franchise fee of $27,000.
