Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Parks Reports 16.4 Percent Year-to-Date Revenue Increase

Both U.S. And Canada Parks On Track To Set New Records

August 28, 2018 // Franchising.com // MILFORD, Ohio - Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts, the nation’s second-largest franchise campground network, said its second quarter revenues were up 11.9 percent while its year-to-date revenues jumped 15.5 percent over last year’s figures.

“These increases are important because they show significant growth over our 2017 figures, which set previous company records. We are on track to set new all-time revenue and occupancy highs for Jellystone Park locations across the U.S. and Canada,” said Kelly Jones, vice president of operations for Leisure Systems, Inc., which franchises Jellystone Park locations across North America.

While overall revenues for 83 parks, including new parks in the Jellystone Park system, were up 16.4% percent through June, same park revenues were up 15.5 percent. Rental accommodation revenues were up 10 percent and campground store revenues were up 16.3 percent. Ancillary revenues such as revenues from special activities, rental equipment, and day use fees, were up 5.4 percent.

Additionally, national media outlets are increasingly naming Jellystone Park locations among the top family camping destinations in the United States. Reader’s Digest recently highlighted the Jellystone Park in Burleson, Texas, in its list of the “Best Parks in Every State,” while MSN recently included seven Jellystone Park locations on its list of the country’s “35 Amazing RV Parks Where No RV is Required.”

Reflecting its strong growth, Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts recently appeared on Franchise Business Review’s Top 200 list of the nation’s best franchise opportunities. The company also moved up 207 slots to No. 265 on Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 list for 2018, the highest appearance by any camping franchisor.

Capitalizing on its success in the family campground business, Leisure Systems is actively expanding the Jellystone Park network. A new Jellystone Park location is scheduled to open before the end of the year and multiple new locations are set to open in 2019.

Campground operators and entrepreneurs who are interested in owning and operating a Jellystone Park are invited to attend the company’s Prospective Owner’s Workshop, which takes place on September 15 and 16. Details can be found at www.jellystonefranchise.com/workshop.
