Safari Run opened in San Mateo in 2006. Founders Jodi and Rob Eichensehr, with the help of their school-aged boys, realized there were few options for parents and kids to play in a fun, clean, and safe environment.
The combination of Jodi and Rob knowing what their kids needed, along with their sons bringing the perspective of what kids want, led to the Safari Run you see today.
Our consistent focus is on providing a clean and safe environment for you and your children to enjoy. At Safari Run every pad in and around the play structure along with the floor is cleaned with a disinfectant at least four times per week. We have the children wash their hands before and after play. In doing this, we strive to provide a safe environment for everyone including children who may have various allergies.
Safari Run name and reputation is an important part of our business. You will spend a minimum of $3,000 on grand-opening advertising during the first three months of operations. You will also spend at least 2% of your gross sales per month on local advertising. In addition, you will be expected to make Marketing Fund contributions of up to 2% of your monthly gross sales.
The initial term of the Franchise Agreement is five years from the date the Franchise Agreement is signed. The franchise is renewable for three successive terms of five years each, providing you have complied with the provisions of the Franchise Agreement.
