Jill Manly was a fitness enthusiast. When she discovered that she was pregnant, she started putting her focus on infant and child fitness. As she did all the research work, she was disappointed to find out that there were very few related programs available in the market. Thankfully, Manly decided to create her own curriculum and then develop her own business system later on which she eventually introduced to the public as Stretch-N-Grow.

Stretch-N-Grow offers physical fitness programs for kids as young as 1 ½ years up to 7 years old. This is an exercise program with a twist because the sessions are especially personalized for kids and their unique physical features. Each class runs for at least about 45 minutes with 2/3 of that devoted to actual exercise and the remaining time left for discussions.

The great thing about the Stretch-N-Grow program is that it is available for franchise, meaning those who are interested to introduce the service and use the curriculum in their own area could inquire with Stretch-N-Grow for franchising offers. Since the business was created way back 1992, they already started franchising just a year after that and they now have franchisees in different countries like Australia, Canada, England, Hong Kong, Ireland, New Zealand and, of course, the United States.

What attracts a lot of potential franchisees about the franchise is that you don’t have to rent a commercial space to get started with Stretch-N-Grow. Yes, you can run this franchise even from your own home office if you want. After all, the classes are being taught at elementary schools, child care centers, YMCA and YWCA, recreation centers, and many others. Most of the time, Stretch-N-Grow instructors are even invited to conduct classes during after-school programs, sports camps and even birthday parties.

The Stretch-N-Grow curriculum just works that’s why there is an increase when it comes to inquiries about the program through the internet. Aside from wanting to avail of the program, there are also a lot who are interested to know how to start a Stretch-N-Grow franchise. Besides, it really has huge potentials and when marketed well, can really lead to huge earnings as well. In fact, 5% of the total franchisees own more than one unit.
