Why Own a Kubo Play franchise?
Our mission has always been the same. To create the most memorable private birthday party experience of a kids life in such a way that’s hassle-free and easy for mom and dad. Are you ready to positively impact children’s lives every day? We are.
During the past 15 years, children’s birthday parties have grown into a diverse $38 billion industry in the United States alone according to celebration industry analysts. This growth has been sustained during periods of major swings in national and local economies. The clearest evidence of this might well be the rise of party planning consultants for children’s birthday parties. These entrepreneurs recognized the trend toward parent outsourcing of children’s birthday parties and seized the opportunity to fill a gap in the expanding kid sector.
Parents are working hard with time at a premium, however, they also want their children to enjoy a unique birthday experience when they are young. It makes sense that they are perfectly willing to pay well to let a professional relieve them of the stress of planning, coordinating, and hosting the event so they can sit back and relax. It only happens once or twice a year, so to derive a level of satisfaction by providing a great experience for the kids is well worth the cost.
Growth in the industry demonstrated that even with a weak economy, parents are still focused on celebrating life’s biggest moments.
Children are Major Influencers of Parental $$ Spending
This might seem a little over the top to some, but as a birthday party business owner, what really caught my attention was an article detailing trends in the industry. It cited a report on child-focused businesses revealing that children today influence approximately $500 billion of their parents' spending!
It is a staggering shift from prior generations and quite an eye opener, but nonetheless, it is the way society operates today and indicative of choices parents must make in prioritizing their time between work and family life.
Parents Have a Stake in
a Good Party Too
A primary reason given for this trend is that spending on children gives parents a sense of accomplishment in providing unique experiences for their child. So, it is as much about the parents as it is about the kids. This is a powerful dynamic in a business based on feelings and emotion.
People will sacrifice other things in order to spend on their children because they want to make [birthdays] special for their child.
When you take a look at the dynamics driving trends in the industry, you see that it is driven by several compelling factors. Primarily, they are a parent’s desire to see their children happy, a necessity (or preference) to outsource the event for the convenience and stress relief they gain, and, a willingness on the part of parents and grandparents to pay a premium for a once a year celebration.
Our competitive advantage is simple. While there are many kids birthday party options, Kubo Play is truly unique in that we offer a 100% private experience with the coolest venue in the industry and the most beautiful decoration ever. Our indoor facilities are safe, fun and full service. We pride ourselves on our best-in-class customer service and brand reputation. Not to mention our private party model, new event innovation and long history of success are unmatched in the sector
Everyone loves to say it, but we mean it. Our future and that of our industry is bright. Not only do we pride ourselves on having fun but we grow our business while doing it. That growth looks to continue moving forward as the number of children under 18 is forecasted to grow by 9% from 2018 to 2025. That increase, coupled with the fact that the annual amount spent on birthday parties away from home is a combined $2.6 billion, means Kubo Play is well positioned for continued success and revenue growth.
There aren’t many businesses where you can accurately predict your volume of business over the next 4 to 8 weeks, because birthday parties are generally planned well in advance, our business model allows you to do just that. You will be able to forecast staffing and product needs based on how many birthday parties are booked which help control costs
