Houston, Texas (PRWEB) May 02, 2014
The Franchise Business Review recently awarded The Little Gym with the 2014 Franchisee Satisfaction Award. This award was determined after the independent market research firm reviewed the business’s performance and operations.
The Little Gym is an international franchise and is the premier physical development and experiential learning center in the world. It focuses on assisting children from ages 4 months to 12 years by offering gymnastics, karate, dance and other activities. By performing the survey, the Franchise Business Review analyzed the company’s strength as a franchise, its core values and how much the owners’ enjoy being a part of the business. The firm also considered the business’s training and support for child services, as well as general satisfaction.
“The Little Gym received such high satisfaction index scores because the company provides franchise owners with such a wonderful experience,” said Catherine West, owner of three Houston-area gyms in Katy, Copperfield and Memorial. “It is very fulfilling to be able to work with children and help them build the essential skills they need in order to be successful in school and in life.”
The franchise owners of The Little Gym also gave the company high scores for creativity, innovation and for the quality of its services. This is because each franchise owner receives age-appropriate and highly developed curriculums, as well as an extensive collection of proprietary music, videos, detailed lesson plans and teaching aids.
“The Little Gym carefully structures its programs so that children can enjoy the benefits of non-competitive activities. We focus on creating a nurturing environment where children can learn and practice new skills, and we help them improve retention, cooperation, comprehension and other social skills. Our approach addresses the physical, cognitive and social development of children so that they can build self-confidence as they grow,” stated West.
The Little Gym was established in 1976 and began franchising in 1992. There are now 294 chains that stretch across 28 countries around the world, and the company is a leader in its field. The Houston-area has ten locations.
“The Little Gym has appeared in the Top Franchise Report four times now,” said West. “It is truly wonderful to be a part of this company, and I am proud to participate in a kid-focused business that is so successful in the Houston area.”
The Franchise Business Review has spent the last nine years surveying over 100,000 franchise owners from hundreds of leading companies. In order to participate in the surveys, the franchisees must have been in business for at least three months.
More than one-third of the franchise owners from The Little Gym International took part in the survey. The questions covered system communication, business lifestyle, financial opportunity, training, support and franchise/franchisee relations. There were also questions related to the general satisfaction of the franchise owners. The public can access the results of the survey at http://www.FranchiseBusinessReview.com.
