I always wanted to open a basketball gym but didn’t know where to start. When I found out about PickUp USA, I was thrilled. They have literally thought of everything when it comes to running a basketball gym, which really takes the guesswork out of things. It’s been a great experience.
PickUp USA has been amazing to work with. I really liked the concept and ultimately decided to start a PickUp USA franchise after speaking with other PickUp USA franchisees about how much support and training the corporate office provides. It’s like having partners. They are always available and really put in a lot of work to help us.
Running a business isn’t always easy, but we get a ton of support from the operations team to help us with any challenges we are going through. We can literally reach someone in the corporate office at any time.
PickUp USA is the first business I’ve ever owned, and it has been a really rewarding journey. The corporate team is super supportive and has been a key part in our success. We hope to open several more PickUp USAs in our market.
