Lowell, MA – May 7, 2009. JOI Franchising, LLC, a Lowell, MA-based company in the child entertainment industry, has announced that it has signed a contract with a Regional Developer to open a minimum of six new Jump On In locations in the state of Texas. The first Texas location is slated to open in Sugar Land, TX, a suburb of Houston. This first Texas location will mark the sixth Jump On In location to open since the original Lowell, MA facility opened in January 2005. The new facility, which is not yet open, will include over 11,000 square feet of slides, obstacle courses, trampoline basketball, table games and bouncers. Jump On In specializes in party facilities offering private, athletic parties to children in a safe, clean environment.

Kevin Lynch, the President of JOI Franchising, LLC, said, “We’re extremely happy to announce that concurrent with the signing of the franchise agreement for Sugar Land, we’ve also signed our first regional developer deal. This will allow us to have a member of our team on-site in Texas who will be responsible for growing the Jump On In brand in the state. Our new developer, Carol Sumrall, is an excellent addition to the Jump On In team and brings a wealth of experience to the table for us. Texas is a big state and we’re expecting big things from Carol. The Texas locations represent the next step in continuing to bring our fun, athletic and exciting concept to children nationwide.”

New Summer Programs:
Jump On In also announced that it has launched a new program called “Jump & Learn”. Jump & Learn is a fun program that includes jumping combined with a learning session including hands-on activities such as live animal shows, fun science experiments, or creative art projects! Before and after the learning activity, the children will go into the location’s gyms for an active period of jumping and physical activity. “We’re expecting this program to become very popular as we introduce it into our locations,” said Lynch. “It provides an opportunity for parents to give their child a fun, active and enriching activity during summer vacations and other non-school periods.” The program is expected to consist of 3-day sessions with three hours of activity planned for each day.
