Sky Zone is the world’s first indoor trampoline park. They are the inventors of “fun fitness” and the makers of trampolines as far as the eye can see. Not only are trampolines awesome and super fun for all ages, they are great for your health! Sky Zone prides itself on providing a workout that can improve cardiovascular health, balance and coordination, mental health, immune system health, digestive regulation, sleep quality – the list is endless! This company has been voted the number one “out of the box” workout and the “best party ever.”
The first Sky Zone location opened in 2004 in Las Vegas. The popularity of the venue increased over time, and as a result, franchising began in 2008. Knowing the concept of the company, lead partner and franchise President David Rzepski teamed up with Vice President Brad Wurtz and sought funding to open a Lakewood, NJ location. Mr. Wurtz has experience in the financial industry and knew that a traditional bank loan may not be the best fit for their business. He knew about First National Bank Small Business Finance's capabilities and decided to reach out to secure an SBA loan for his Sky Zone franchise.
Mr. Wurtz had this to say about working with the First National Bank SBF team:
Rarely do you run into a company where everyone is a joy to work with! The team of David, Rob, and Crystal showed a true interest in our business. They know how to properly package an SBA loan, and their experience shined through every step of the process. One thing is for certain – when we are ready to move into our next territory, First National Bank Small Business Finance will be our first phone call!
With the loan from First National Bank Small Business Finance, Brad and David had the honor of opening the 100th location of Sky Zone Trampoline Park. Business is great – since opening, they have hosted functions such as birthday parties, bachelor parties, dodgeball leagues, and more. In the future, the duo will be looking to expand and open more Sky Zone franchises. When the time comes, we will be here to help!
For the most fun you’ve ever had on a trampoline, visit Sky Zone Trampoline Park!
