As the franchise industry landscape has continued to evolve over the past two years, the Altitude Trampoline Park team has worked tirelessly to adapt our system to meet the changing needs of our franchisees and their guests. New additions to our system, such as our membership program rollout, diversification of revenue streams, updated park attractions and strengthened relationships with vendors are results of the efforts put forth by our leadership team and franchisees.
CEO Mike Rotondo joined Altitude in 2019 and quickly showcased the brand’s resiliency to pandemic-related hurdles by leading the charge on 11 new park openings between 2020-2021. Mike’s “anything is possible” approach to launching the membership program and leading franchise development helped Altitude drive double-digit sales increases for several participating parks.
Because of Mike’s success, he was recently acknowledged on the Georgia Titan 100 ranking, which is an honor that spotlights 100 CEOs and C-level executives in Georgia and the Greater Atlanta area, at an annual awards ceremony taking place this May. One of the cornerstones of Mike’s leadership style is franchisee collaboration, and his dedication to assisting our franchise network to ensure that everyone in the system can achieve great heights.
Grady Hinchman, who spent three years as a professional baseball player prior to his ownership of the Altitude location in Kissimmee, Florida, was named the “Franchisee of the Year” at the 2022 International Franchise Association Conference. Grady’s passion for an active lifestyle and nearly a decade of experience in franchising and regional operations have enabled him to uphold the values and vision of our brand to the highest level.
“This award serves as an inspiration for us to continue the momentum we’ve developed over the past two years,” Grady says, “With strategic growth of membership sales and brand recognition in mind, we will continue to bring the JumpLife!℠ to more communities than ever.”
