Making Money While Making a Difference

At Tumbles, we’re looking for partners who share our mission of shaping the minds and bodies of the future. But to ensure our partners are also positioned to build a ​successful and profitable franchise business​, it’s important to know that the estimated start-up costs range from $226,500 to $338,500.

In addition, we require:

  1. A net worth of at least $250,000
  2. At least $50,000 in liquid assets available for investment

You can achieve these requirements on your own or by partnering with family, friends or other investors with similar financial backing. After we award a franchise, our ​training and support team​ ​will help you navigate the financing process to secure funding for your Tumbles location.
