Here at GPM we pride ourselves on the world-class training, support and guidance we offer our franchisees.
As a new franchisee, you’ll have a number of tasks to complete before opening your doors. Whether it’s hiring staff, publicizing your business or setting your class schedule, our home office team is committed to providing you the resources and tools to make your location a success for children and parents alike!
When you succeed, children and families succeed.
Our initial training program is designed to inspire and educate our new franchisees about our company culture, curriculum and proprietary information.
During your initial training, you will travel to our headquarter in San Francisco to learn all aspects of running a Gymboree Play & Music.
Posters, press releases, social media oh my! If the stress of managing a business wasn’t enough, there’s the added layer of marketing your business. Here at GPM, our marketing team provides support for everything from email blasts and social media ads, to branded posters and graphic design support.
Once you’ve signed the contract, set up your location and opened your doors, the next thing to tackle is customer management. We know that navigating a CRM and taking payments might be new for you, which is why our team of experts is always just an email or phone call away. It is our goal to prioritize the customer experience, which also means helping you to manage memberships, promotions, and payment effectively.
In addition to membership sales, each of our franchisees has the opportunity to merchandise and sell educational toys and branded items in their centers. Our franchisees can tap into our supply chain and leverage the vast purchasing power of GPPI Inc., serving locations across North America. We are here to help you with your orders, and keep you updated on supply chain information.
