July 11, 2016 // Franchising.com // Rosedale, MD - Maryland-based ClimbZone unveiled a new franchise model and offering at the recent International Franchise Expo (IFE) in New York City.
ClimbZone, which started 10 years ago in New Zealand, opened its first U.S. indoor climbing center in Laurel, Maryland in November 2014. Since opening, the 20,000 sq. ft. climbing center has experienced a tremendous level of success. Its custom-designed climbing walls feature various three dimensional themed designs ranging from a replica of Mt. Rushmore to an Egyptian tomb. The walls are each 28 feet high and utilize a hydraulic auto-belay system, which safely lowers climbers back down to the ground. This system is both safe and simple to use for climbers of all ages.
ClimbZone ‘s booth at the IFE generated significant industry buzz with its spectacular representation of the company’s colorful and detailed, hand-painted climbing walls, which many attendees actually scaled during the three-day expo.
The company released its “phase-one” growth plans, which include franchise locations near the major metro areas of the mid Atlantic and northeast corridor.
“We chose to award the first franchise locations close to our Maryland-based production facility, in order to properly support our new franchisee partners”, stated ClimbZone Franchising LLC’s Chief Operating Officer, Keith Levenson. “Its very important for us to have franchise business partners that share our passion and vision for both the business and our brand. ClimbZone offers a very unique, active, and healthy family entertainment experience, and we want to share that with the world.
ClimbZone is a revolutionary concept in family entertainment providing an exhilarating and truly unique indoor climbing experience. This incredibly popular concept was brought to the United States from New Zealand. The company’s flagship climbing center is located in Laurel, Maryland. Each of its 75 custom-designed walls allows climbers of all ages an experience that is simply unavailable anyplace else.
