March 06, 2014 // Franchising.com // LOS ANGELES – Sky Zone (www.skyzone.com), the world’s first indoor all-walled trampoline park that provides a WoW experience, will be featured on the hit CBS series "Undercover Boss" on Friday, Mar. 14 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT). CEO Jeff Platt traveled across the country to franchise locations where he got a behind-the-scenes look at the company operations, performing such tasks as installing trampolines, monitoring courts and cleaning the foam pit.
Sky Zone, a trampoline park for all ages with a mission of awesome, healthy, fun, began in 2004 and has since grown to new heights. With 55 locations throughout the United States and Canada, Sky Zone is expecting to open 30 more units this year. Along with Sky Zone’s impressive domestic growth, they are beginning to expand their footprint internationally, opening new locations in Australia and Mexico. As the youngest CEO to appear on the show at age 29, Platt made the decision to participate in "Undercover Boss" in order to learn from his team members who actively promote the WoW experience and the brand’s goal of delivering that extra something one jump at a time.
"This opportunity has given me the chance to see firsthand all of the incredible things Sky Zone team members do on a daily basis to make the brand successful. It is awesome to see the passion they all possess for promoting our mission of an active, fun lifestyle," said Jeff Platt, CEO of Sky Zone. "This experience opened my eyes to the fact that there is still room for improvement in our day-to-day operations as the company continues to grow. The Sky Zone family is filled with dedicated and dynamic people and we want to make sure they have what they need to keep the brand flying high."
"Undercover Boss" is a two-time Emmy Award-winning reality series in its fifth season that follows high-level corporate executives each week as they leave the comfort of their corner office for an undercover mission to examine the inner workings of their companies. Through the experience of working side-by-side with employees, the executives gain a new perspective of the behind the scenes operations of their organizations, while developing a new appreciation for some of the hardest working individuals that embody their brands.
