Franchising has proven to be such a successful model the world over, that new brands are constantly emerging in every imaginable sector. Here are 15 of the most exciting new concepts from throughout Europe, that have been franchising no earlier than 2011 and have succeeded in growing beyond their respective home markets.
BabyBallers’ first club in 2016 sold out before it had even opened, which led its founders to launch the franchise opportunity the following year to keep up with fierce demand from parents and their soccer-loving children.
It’s not about introducing fierce competition into children’s lives through sport, but instead about building character skills and confidence. “We encourage active engagement, increase the parent-child bond and promote an environment that enables children to use their initiative and creativity,” explains Chris Elms, business development manager. “Job satisfaction doesn’t come close when you can see the difference your BabyBallers club has made to a child’s confidence and social skills, not to mention when you see the parents developing a new social circle, too.”
