Parents love Jeronimo! because it\'s safe, clean, affordable, and the staff is friendly. Kids love Jeronimo! because they have fun.How We Got Our Name
During WWII, so the legend goes, a couple of greenhorn airborne paratrooper soldiers were trying to bolster their courage before their first jump.
One said to the other, "You're scared about the first jump tomorrow, I'll bet."
"Nope, not a bit," paratrooper replied. Having recently seen a movie about the exploits of Geronimo, he said, "I'll yell, 'Geronimo!' when I jump out the door." Next day, true to his word, the trooper yelled, "Geronimo!" for all his fellow soldiers to hear, and the word became part of the American lexicon.
That's the story of yelling "Geronimo."
So it's in this spirit of fun and play that this Jeronimo! came to be. About Us The Kids:
Children should get an hour of exercise every day. It's a habit that stays with them a lifetime. Play at Jeronimo! is fun and lays the foundation of activity as sliding, bouncing, climbing and maneuvering through the inflatables improve children's balance, motor skills and coordination. The Parents:
We provide a quiet parent's lounge where they can relax with a cup of coffee, tea, and nibble on pastries or muffins, while surfing the Net (using our computers or WIFI), or catch up on a favorite magazine from our library. As they watch the children play from comfortable chairs, parents can relax to classical or jazz music. Own your own indoor inflatables facility! Consulting Services
With our consulting service, we work with you to set up your own indoor inflatables company – from entity selection, to real estate, all the way through to your grand opening. Unlike a franchisor, once we finish, we go away and you do not pay ongoing franchise fees,
which amounts to 6-7% of gross revenue! Yet, we will be available on an as-needed basis at an hourly rate if you need help later. When you hire us as a consultant, we put our arms around your shoulders and walk with you down the path. You benefit from our experience. We tell you what to do, how to do it, where to go…then you do it!
We have quantified 31 action items, scores of action sub-items and time table (Gantt project chart) in a step-by-step process of setting up your own facility: entity selection, real estate, build-out, inflatables, hardware/software, marketing/promotion, HR, accounting, operations. We include the operations manual and training. A la carte consulting services, such as the Gantt chart, are available, also. You don\'t need a franchisor if you have someone to help you get set up and operate. And you keep all the franchising fees! If your time horizon is greater than six months, please contact us in the future, when you become closer to the point of committing to becoming a Jeronimo! franchise owner.
