Rebounderz promotes Coates to COO
Joshua Coates Worked His Way To The C-Suite with Smart Ideas and Hard Work
May 14, 2015 // Franchising.com // SANFORD, Fla. – Joshua Coates is now the chief operating officer of Rebounderz Franchise and Development, the franchisors of Rebounderz Indoor Trampoline Arena.
Coates began his Rebounderz career approximately eight years ago as an arena referee for Rebounderz Indoor Trampoline Arena. He quickly earned a series of promotions and most recently served as Rebounderz Franchise and Development’s general manager.
“Josh’s addition to the corporate leadership team is a testament to his exceptional hard work and dedication to the growth and expansion of Rebounderz,” said CEO Mark Gurley. “Josh is a dedicated member of our leadership team with passion and innovative ideas that have directly contributed to our rapid growth.”
Coates has worked to enhance Rebounderz. He conceptualized the red safety lines surrounding trampoline beds that remind guests to jump within the lines and encourages them to stay in the middle of trampoline bed while jumping. Rebounderz dubbed them “Joshua Lines” after Coates. He also identified the top strategic markets for Rebounderz arena expansions over the next 10 years.
In this newly created position at the fast-growing franchisor, Coates is primarily responsible for overseeing the construction and installation of all new Rebounderz arenas and training franchisees and their arena management teams.
“Josh has the ability to see things and make improvements in a way that isn’t taught in school,” Gurley continued. “He can look at a design and understand how the arena traffic should flow.”
Coates currently serves on the design committee for the American Society for Testing and Materials.
“It’s an opportunity of a lifetime to lead the Rebounderz team in this capacity,” Coates said. “I am dedicated and motivated to inspire those I train to proudly contribute to the success of the arenas where they are employed. Our guests are our top priority and we instill this into the work ethic of our growing workforce.”
Rebounderz recently announced its first international arena in Panama City, Panama, which is scheduled to open in the fall of 2015.
Rebounderz, known for its superior engineering and safety, is focused on providing a safe way for the entire family to have fun and stay active. At Rebounderz, “superior engineering, maximum safety” is not just a slogan. From the patent-protected, innovative designs to the detailed training process for referees, Rebounderz strives to provide a safe, enjoyable experience for all guests. Rebounderz builds its arenas using products that are made in America wherever possible.
