Wheel Fun Rentals Franchise Opportunities
There is no better time to be in the Travel & Tourism industry than now. In 2016, it grew to be a $7.6 trillion sector and is predicted continue to grow through the next few years. In fact, for the 6th straight year, growth in Travel & Tourism outpaced that of the global U.S. economy.
Wheel Fun Rentals franchisees have seen growth year after year that’s consistent with these trends and are excited for what the future holds. But even a few years ago, when the economy was less stable, Wheel Fun Rentals continued to be a great value in family entertainment. We have historically found that when consumers are cutting back, our high-value entertainment and amusement alternative does well. Whether in economic recession or boom, Wheel Fun Rentals expects to deliver solid revenue growth year after year.

WHY BECOME A FRANCHISEE?
In addition to brand identity, fully-developed business operating systems, a great lineup of products, market analysis, and exclusive prime territories, there are many other reasons to have a Wheel Fun franchise:
Attend the week-long Wheel Fun Training Camp in Southern California, and then receive ongoing training and support for as long as you are a Wheel Fun franchisee.
Receive the support of a team that will assist you on the road towards realizing your dreams. Take advantage of our field visit program, response hotline, owners association, and use our free in-house advertising agency.
Obtain preferential pricing from suppliers, including insurance at a system-wide rate.
Image & Branding
We strive to maintain a consistent “Wheel Fun” experience across all of our franchised locations. Our goal is modern amusement entertainment (think Disney®), in a leisure environment.
Unlike most franchisors, we’re not afraid to provide you with information on historical results – not just the numbers on prime locations – on every Wheel Fun location. That information is part of our offering circular and we welcome any questions you may have.
“One of the biggest points of becoming a franchisee was the overall support;
the marketing and the support of the company.”
