PickUp USA is the nation’s first and only basketball-focused fitness club! Our gyms offer group and private basketball training, court rentals, full weight and cardio rooms, and our main attraction: PickUp basketball with referees!
Since our humble beginnings in 2012, PickUp USA has grown to be the nation’s premier basketball gym for casual players to NBA stars.
Why PickUp USA Fitness?
Over 30 million people participate in basketball activities in the United States. PickUp USA caters to this massive market with our basketball-focused service offerings. Customers range from youth as young as five years old to adults, beginners to experts, and casual “weekend warriors” to NBA players.
PickUp USA gyms make money from four distinct revenue channels:
PickUp USA gyms run on a streamlined operating model with 10-12 total staff per location. PickUp USA has been described as “the most plug-and-play fitness franchise in the industry.”
Successful PickUp USA franchisees are 100% bought into the concept, offerings, and operating methods of our brand. Franchisees should possess the ability to build a team and properly coach and develop their team to implement our services and meet customer satisfaction goals.
Bottom line: PickUp USA has a clearly defined playbook for franchisees to follow. The game plan has been developed and franchisees who put in the work, implement the plan, and stay focused on growing their club have a high likelihood of success within our system.
Some of our franchisees are working professionals who started their PickUp USA club while maintaining their primary employment. Others have left their jobs to focus fully on PickUp USA. We even have clubs owned by current NBA players. Regardless of your background or experience in fitness or basketball, if you are willing to put in the work, you can succeed as a PickUp USA franchisee.
Training And Support
The PickUp USA franchisee training and support program is an industry leading curriculum that ensures franchisee’s have the best opportunity for success in their local market.
It starts during site selection. PickUp USA has a seasoned real estate team that provides comprehensive market analysis to determine viability of different regions within a franchisee’s territory. From there, the franchisee works with the real estate team to identify suitable facilities for lease, purchase, or build. Once a facility is selected, the PickUp USA real estate team supports the franchisee with negotiations all the way through lease execution or purchase contract.
After the facility is secured, PickUp USA’s operations team steps in to coordinate the buildout of the location. Franchisees have a dedicated contact at the corporate office available seven days a week that works hand-in-hand with the franchisee during the build out process.
During the buildout, PickUp USA’s operations team takes the franchisee and their staff through a comprehensive multi-module training program that involves web-based training, training onsite at franchisee’s store, and training at PickUp USA corporate operated stores.
The operations team also helps franchisee establish pre-sales campaigns in which PickUp USA franchise locations average over 200 sign ups before the club opens.
After the training is complete and the club is built out, the operations team is at the location for several days during the soft and grand opening period to ensure a smooth launch of the business.
After the grand opening, franchisees are assigned a dedicated representative from the corporate office who will stay with them for the life of the business to help grow and develop the location and achieve the franchisee’s financial and operational objectives.
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.
