Bounce founder named top franchisor at Best Business Women Awards

I’m so proud that our company has been recognised with such a prestigious award for business women in the UK
– Kimberlee Perry, CEO, Bounce

Kimberlee Perry, founder of trampolining fitness group Bounce, has been named as the UK’s Best Franchisor at the Best Business Women Awards 2017.

The awards, launched in 2015, recognise dedicated female entrepreneurs and business owners across 17 categories.

Perry received the accolade at a ceremony at Tewin Bury Farm, Hertfordshire, on 12 October, and was also shortlisted for Best Business Woman Working in Health and Wellness, and Best Business.

Now in its third year of trading, the company has grown to 97 sites, with turnover nudging £1m in the first six months of 2017.

More than 26,000 people attend Bounce classes every month, in more than 100 UK locations.

Class attendees are taught choreographed dance routines on mini trampolines in a fun nightclub atmosphere, with a donation from each payment going directly to Macmillan Cancer.

The business is run on a franchise model, with many instructors having initially visited Bounce classes as attendees before being headhunted to teach their own classes.

Perry said: “We've come a long way in a short space of time and are committed to delivering the highest standard of teaching and customer experience to our attendees who love the fun, friendly and fierce nature of our classes.”

Award judges said: “This is a franchisor who supports her franchisees well and that also clearly cares about the community.”
