The FUN BUS

FUN BUS

FUN BUS FRANCHISE OVERVIEW

What is a Fun Bus?

The Fun Bus is a full-size school bus that is completely refurbished to become a colorful children’s “gym on wheels”

The exterior is painted Fun Bus green and covered with festive and fun artwork and logos, with phone # and website adhered all over

The seats are removed and the interior is painted, carpeted and padded from front to back

An onboard generator powers 2-3 AC/heater units to create a comfortable environment in any season

The surround sound audio accentuates the high energy atmosphere, we even have our own FUN BUS music!

The Fun Bus comes equipped with padded mats, swings, rings, climbing shapes, a parallel bar, a slide and much more to produce an atmosphere that is both child friendly and FUN!

 

What Does a Fun Bus Do?

The Fun Bus provides structured and supervised fitness activities for children aged 18 months to seven years designed to capture their imagination and excitement through movement, music and having FUN!

Two “certified” Fun Bus instructors lead up to 15 children at once through a 30-minute “class” of fitness fun (the bus never moves with children onboard)

A typical week entails scheduled visits Monday – Friday to daycares and preschools where the Fun Bus acts as the daycare/preschool’s outsourced fitness extra curricular program

Saturdays and Sundays are available to do a variety of special events ranging from birthday parties to corporate picnics to family reunions and everything in between

The Fun Bus is an asset that can be utilized 7-days a week and year round!

 

Fun Bus Franchise

Fun Bus began in 2001 and was formed by two entrepreneurial women who were former daycare owners, one a teacher and the other a business lady.

The concept was franchised in 2003 and has grown steadily from two franchises in 2003 to 35 currently. In that period two Master Franchisees have been added – one for the state of Colorado and one for the state of Georgia.

Owners have the option to run single units in their territory, or add another unit(bus), grow into another area, and own or operate, or own and manage.(we have currently have a variety of all models!)

With a solid base of successful franchisees and a system that is still growing in current economic times, Fun Bus Fitness FUN on Wheels ® has positioned itself for accelerated growth since franchising in 2003.

 

Industry & Opportunity

Today’s Youth

Child and Adolescent obesity and Type II Diabetes are on the rise due, in part, to a more sedentary lifestyle of today’s youth fostered by technology – internet, cable/satellite TV, video games, cell phones, text messaging, etc.

There is NOT a piece of media that does not support this

Working Parents/Single Parent Households

Gone are the days when the typical household can be described as Dad at work and Mom at home with the kids. Economic necessities and social changes in the accepted norms have led to a tremendous need for child care outside the home

To meet this need, daycare facilities have been and are continuing to experience rapid expansion

Positioned Perfectly

A growing need (childhood inactivity and its consequences) coupled with a growing customer base (daycares/preschools) has created an ideal intersection of need and opportunity that the Fun Bus is positioned perfectly to satisfy

Their will ALWAYS be customers(children and daycares alike)


Sophisticated Customer / Unsophisticated Competition

The typical large franchised daycares that dominate some of the landscape have start-up costs in the million to multi-million dollar range

These are sophisticated business people with a significant investment at stake both in terms of dollars and in reputation with their customers yet the typical service provider to these daycares are often mom-n-pop style entrepreneurs – the music lady, the clown guy, etc.

The Fun Bus is the only franchise in the children’s mobile fitness business
Additional Opportunity: Children’s Entertainment

No business is recession proof but the children’s entertainment industry is certainly recession resistant. History has shown that a parents desire and willingness to spend money on their children endures even through economic hardship

Significant multiple revenue streams can be generated through birthday parties, camps, religious organizations, civic events, corporate picnics, etc.

The mobility offered by the Fun Bus affords a franchisee an unlimited number of potential customers outside of the traditional daycare/preschool core group

Because of the ability to work as much or as little as one wants, we tap into multiple revenue streams, allowing a franchisee to be in control of their income goals

 

Fun Bus – The Business

Quality of Life
WOW FACTOR, FUN FACTOR, QUALITY OF LIFE, CONTROL OF YOUR OWN DESTINY!!

Home Office:

Most Fun Bus franchisees operate the business from a home based office which eliminates the commute and increases time with the family

Flexible Schedule:

This is not a retail business that requires set day-to-day hours of operation, you set your own schedule, time off, etc.

The Fun Bus can be operated to accommodate virtually any owners schedule and goals

Turn-key:

Unlike many other business opportunities, this is not a business that takes months of preparation before revenue can be generated

Within sixty to ninety days, the franchisor sources, provides and delivers a completely refurbished Fun Bus (both inside and out) complete with all the necessary equipment to start servicing your customers right from the start


Financial Model

Extremely low overhead

Small number of employees needed (only 2 needed to operate a bus at a time)

Minimal inventory to purchase

Low monthly expenses to operate

Ready Cash Flow

The majority of customers pay prior to services rendered which provides ample cash flow, limited receivables and little chance for bad debt

Scalable Business

There is no limit or additional franchise fee required to expand to multiple buses within the purchased territory


Sales and Marketing

Established Local Brand Recognition

The Fun Bus has established itself as the premier mobile fitness program within many of the major area daycare chains

The brand’s strength and reputation can be leveraged across these chains to make the sales process immeasurably easier and more successful

Blueprint for Success

Fun Bus provides a proven step-by-step sales and marketing plan to take the guesswork and fear out of customer acquisition

A complete customer list of all daycares & preschools is provided

Hands-on Training for owning and operating a business is adequately provided and supported

Repeat business

System-wide, the franchise has proven that once a school has the Fun Bus they keep the Fun Bus; this is NOT a business that requires constant acquisition of new customers

Ideal Fun Bus Candidates

Fun Bus is interested in adding business oriented individuals who want to manage, sell and market their business and who have the following qualities or goals:

Net worth of greater than $100,000

Desire to grow into a multi-bus territory and make a six figure income

Willingness to go into marketplace and sell their product, B2B

Strong interpersonal skills

Candidates do NOT need the following to succeed:

Skills or desire to drive a bus; no CDL needed

Any background in children’s fitness or fitness generally

Love for interacting and working with children

Customized Tutor – StudentMatching…

At Chyten, we select tutors to match the individual learning styles of our students. Tell us about your child’s unique learning style and we will make
every effort to find his or her perfect tutor.

We only employ tutors with a minimum of a master’s degree and prior teaching experience. We provide exclusive, customized programs designed around our own skills-based strategies and techniques.

child’s homework, schedule,  important dates and more. You can also contact your tutor directly!


Highly Effective Classes
Chyten not only offers great tutoring but also highly effective classes. In fact, Chyten’s Test Preparation Classes are among the best in the industry.



CHYTEN’S CLASSROOM TEACHERS.
Our classroom teachers meet the same high standards as our tutors. All have master’s degrees, teaching experience and exceptional pedagogical skills. Chyten accepts only the most gifted individuals, then trains them to become Chyten teachers.



CHYTEN’S CLASSROOM APPROACH.
Our strategies are nationally heralded and unsurpassed in raising scores. But Chyten’s strategies are only the beginning. Chyten’s classes help students overcome psychological and physiological barriers to test success as well.



A VARIETY OF CLASS FORMATS.
Chyten invented the PSAT Bootcamps and SAT Bootcamps and though many have copied the idea, no other program comes close to the
effectiveness of the original. Chyten also offers refresher courses, extended format classes and welcomes partnerships with school systems to offer its programs in schools at dramatically reduced rates.

All Star Driver Education provides all of our franchise partners a comprehensive training program at our corporate office.  This program includes a mix of classroom and live, hands-on training.
STAFF TRAINING
In addition to a franchisees own training, they will also send someone through our Pre Opening Procedures program, which will prepare them to train their staff, and understand as well as learn all what makes corporate successful, so that when they return to their area of operation, so they will be equally or more successful than corporate!
GRAND OPENING
During a franchisees grand opening, they will have a member of All Star Driver Education senior support staff available to help smooth out any wrinkles and answer questions as they arise. We believe our franchisees comfort as an owner/operator has a direct impact on their success, and we want to make sure that they are successful even before their first day of opening the doors for their Grand Opening.
CONTINUED SUPPORT
Following their Grand Opening, our franchisees will continue to have access to members of corporate support team for any other questions they may have. We want to be available to all of our franchisees, because when they are successful, we all are successful!

Growing Demand

projected 34% growth,
compared with 11%
growth for all other
industries combined

•Families are more likely to move where the jobs are, and therefore, are less likely to have relatives living nearby that can help with child care

Parents are telecommuting and need time.

Parents work different hours. We fill that overlap

Today’s grandparents live longer, healthier lives

Kids are no longer as available to babysit

•We are a unique drop-in child care and entertainment center for kids ages 6 weeks to 12 years old.
•Kids can play, explore, and learn while in our safe and secure environment.
• Parents can enjoy shopping, dining, running errands, or just relax with peace of mind!
