LOWELL — JOI Franchising, LLC, owner and franchisor of the Jump On In!
child party centers, announced that it has landed its first regional
developer deal.

The company said the deal will allow it open at least six new Jump On
In! party centers in Texas, with the first scheduled for Sugar Land, a
suburb of Houston.

Kevin Lynch, president of JOI Franchising, said in a statement that the
regional 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 expect big things from Carol.”

Lynch, of Westford, started the franchise with his wife, Carla.

The Sugar Land facility, which is not yet open, includes more than
11,000 square feet of slides, obstacle courses, trampoline basketball,
table games and bouncers.

Separately, JOI announced that it also launched a new program called
“Jump & Learn.” The program includes jumping combined with a learning
session including hands-on activities such as live animal shows, science
experiments and art projects.

The first Jump On In! facility opened on Phoenix Avenue in Lowell in
January 2005. Additional centers have since been added regionally in
Woburn, Haverhill and Nashua, with a fifth in Boonton, N.J.
