Pop Up Play Village Franchise Opportunities

Since we opened our doors our Pop Up Village has proved to be a very popular place to play. We want to welcome many more children and their parents into our role play world, but to do that we need some help.

We’re looking for people who understand children and enjoy being around them. Ideally you’ll have experience of working with children and/or have your own – but that’s not essential. What is, is a sense of fun and adventure.

We think Pop Up Play Village is a fantastic business opportunity. The people who run it at the moment make good money and have a job that’s fun, flexible and rewarding.

It’s a tried and tested business model and with all the help and support at hand, failure just isn’t an option.

Why Join Our Village:

  • Our franchises are competitively priced

  • We have the backing of two high street banks who can help with start-up costs

  • You will be given everything you need to get started

  • On going training and support is at hand
  • You will be your own boss, running a tried and tested business

  • You will inspire and entertain children and their parents

A review from Sam who owns the Maidenhead and Windsor Franchise:

”My name is Sam and I am the new franchise owner of Maidenhead and Windsor Pop Up Play Village Franchise.

I first heard of Pop Up Play Village last May when a friend of mine bought the Maidenhead and Windsor franchise, and when she told me I felt a little pang of jealousy. I have worked with children for the past 15 years and ran my own successful childminding business. However, there was something about Pop Up Play and the opportunities it gave to Little People that made me think that it could potentially be a fantastic business opportunity for me and my daughters to run and we could make it a fantastic family business.

Early this year Cath sadly had to think about selling the franchise to make way for her other business to expand, and as she had a young son, she just couldn’t run both. So, I put my interest to her and here we are!! On June 1st 2019 Pop Up Play Village Maidenhead and Windsor became my new baby.

The first month proved very successful I ran 2 successful sessions, a  taster session in the local shopping centre, ran a session at my sons school Summer Fair and got 4 party bookings and in July I secured a pre school booking and piloted a new fortnightly session which is proving very popular.

My advice to anyone considering buying a franchise, is to just go for it. All the staff at Pop Up Play village are very helpful and welcoming and I hope to be here for many years to come.”

A review from Sophie who owns Pop Up Play Village In and around Caerphilly:

”Hi my name is Sophie and I run Pop Up Play Village Caerphilly. I started my business in October 2019 and so glad I did. With months of looking for something that I love,  I decided to join Pop Up Play Village not only because I love role play and what learning outcomes children can have from it but because  watching my own daughter grow, role play is so rewarding and I wanted something that I could fit around her so I can always be there for her no matter what. From the get go Becky has always been very supportive and answers any questions I have which is a big help as I’ve never run my own business before. All my customers always comment on how much of a good idea it is and it’s unique which I agree on of course. I love my little business and I thank Becky for showing me it 😃😃”

A review from Sarah who owns Pop Up Play Village in North of Bristol:

I joined the Pop Up Play Village team in July 2020. I was fed up with my day job, itching for something new and exciting to do and to use my experience in children’s entertainment. When I saw the advert for a franchise opportunity, I jumped at the chance – and honestly, I haven’t looked back. Starting a new business is a daunting task but with the support of Becky and the team, I have overcome challenges I know I couldn’t have overcome on my own. Despite opening during a pandemic, it’s been amazing! Buying into this franchise gives me the best of both worlds, I am my own boss and can make decisions that suit me and my family but I also have the knowledge and expertise of the rest of the Pop Up Play Village team, helping me to navigate the confusing guidelines and restrictions that businesses face. 100% the best decision I have ever made and I am so happy that I took this leap into my new future!
