A Conversation with Luke from Mighty Kicks Soccer: A Franchise Investment Worth Checking Out

This past week I spoke with Luke Vercollone, the president and founder of Mighty Kicks Soccer, a mobile soccer program designed to build motor skills, life skills, self-confidence and basic soccer techniques to children ages 2-7. The program brings soccer to where the children are, whether it is a childcare facility during the day, an after-school program at an elementary school, or other various locations in the community for home-schooled children and the general public. Mighty Kicks Soccer is unique in introducing sports and concepts of teamwork to children at a very young, impressionable age – and the coolest part? It’s a franchise.

Following Luke’s graduation from Seton Hall University (where he majored in Sports Management), he was drafted into the MLS and has been playing professional soccer since 2004. He is an NSCAA certified coach, with his USSF National B License and over 17 years of coaching experience. It was his coaching experience at other programs that inspired Luke to develop his own program.

I asked him how long after he began Mighty Kicks did he realize it had the capability to be franchised. Luke said “It wasn’t until I started the program in 2008 that I realized the program had potential to become a franchise. It was early in the first season; I immediately saw the popularity of Mighty Kicks and I realized there was a demand for this type of program and it was profitable.”

He went on to explain the unique aspect of this franchise, “Soccer is extremely popular, many other soccer programs play evenings and weekends, and we don’t compete with those programs. Mighty Kicks brings the program to the children. It’s, convenient, it’s economical, and it’s unique.” Mighty Kicks primarily focuses on preschool-aged children, at their preschools, where children can partake in the enrichment program on site during school hours.

Mighty Kicks Soccer is highly successful in developing many skills, including balance, agility, coordination, teamwork and good sportsmanship. Luke says “Our goal is to give young children an overall positive experience with sports, and specifically soccer. If they’re having fun, they’re learning. If they are enjoying soccer, they are more likely to play it in the future.” Even beyond the basic skills Mighty Kicks Soccer helps children develop, he says “We are indirectly teaching them life skills. We provide them with a positive experience, and keep them active.”

After speaking to Luke, I was very interested in checking out the benefits of franchising with Mighty Kicks Soccer. There are many: including a high profit margin with little overhead to maintain, flexible and family friends work hours, tax benefits, saved time (not wasted on the learning curve), as well as the enjoyable and rewarding work that makes a difference to children in the community. There are many other benefits one can receive when franchising with Mighty Kicks Soccer and you can check the rest of them out here.

And Luke’s message to those interested in franchising? “I think we have the greatest value.  As a new franchise, we are eager to bring on quality franchisees. If a candidate is interested in sports, in kids, and in business, this is a great investment.” Luke says this is an “Unbeatable value with a great investment opportunity.” I most certainly agree.

A Load of Rubbish Works: How a Junk Removal Franchise Goes Green

junk removal franchise

The worlds of junk removal and green entrepreneurship collide within Rubbish Works, a franchise concept that offers its franchisees the opportunity to provide a much-needed service while owning their own business.

 

Self-describe as, “not just another junk hauler,” Rubbish Works makes a concerted effort to solve the junk removal demands of residential and commercial clients while keeping their businesses practices green and environmentally-friendly. The junk-removal franchise concept specializes in the removal of old furniture, appliances, garage items and renovation debris, much of which is recyclable. A large number of Rubbish Works’ commercial clients are real estate agents or contractors, who require the junk-removal franchise’s 20-yard roll-off containers sized to each project’s specifications.

 

Rubbish Works’ list of acceptable items and provided services includes:

 

Appliances:

  • Refrigerators
  • Kitchen Appliances
  • Water Heaters
  • Washers / Dryers
  • Electronics / TV’s
  • Computers / Monitors

Outdoor / Yard Debris:

  • Bricks / Concrete
  • Brush / Leaves
  • Dirt / Gravel
  • Wood
  • Hot tubs

Household Items:

  • Garage Items
  • Tires
  • Old Furniture
  • Trash

 

All appliances, televisions and computers are recycled 100% of the time. Of the other removed items, up to 50% is recycled on an ongoing basis.

 

As a franchisee, Rubbish Works partners are provided with all of the operational tools necessary to be up and running immediately, including: a customized hook-lift truck, a centralized call center, web-based scheduling capabilities, GPS mapping capabilities, crew tracking and a proprietary web-based software. This, leveraged with the franchises’s training and support systems and the industry’s project growth through 2020 puts Rubbish Works’ franchisees in the black– and green.

 

One of the biggest benefits to owning a Rubbish Works (versus another junk-removal franchise) is the ability to operate a business with two separate revenue streams. As Rubbish Works services both residential and commercial clients, the opportunities for junk-removal, recycling or other clean-up projects is doubled.

Franchise Profile: French Fry Heaven

The world is a better place with French fries– in fact, they might be the best fried foods ever created. At least that’s what the founder of French Fry Heaven believes, and why the restaurant franchise singularly celebrates hamburger’s best friend and ketchup’s soulmate.

 

French Fry Heaven, the franchise industry’s first French gourmet fry-only franchise, sells two types of heavenly fried potatoes, Angels and Saints. Angels are classic, Belgian-style* French fries that can be topped with just about anything, like ranch dressing, barbecue sauce, gravy and cheese, or blue cheese dust. Saints are sweet potato fries that can be savory, served with salt, or sweet, dusted with cinnamon and brown sugar, maple syrup or other saccharine smothers. French Fry Heaven customers may also sprinkles their fries with Ethereal Sea Salts in flavors like ghost pepper, vanilla and lime fresco.

Each French Fry Heaven franchise unit operates out of a small stand alone location with a specially designed ventless enclosed fryer. Targeted locations include college campuses, stadiums, airports, military bases and malls.

 

Beyond frying up gourmet French fries, French Fry Heaven strives to be unprofessional. (You read that right.) By focusing on making one stand-out product, the food franchise is able to provide its customers with great customer service and a fun, outrageous experience.

 

A cornerstone of French Fry Heaven’s business is its commitment to charitable service and, as such, all who become a part of the restaurant franchise must be committed to giving back to their communities, too.

 

When it comes to finding new franchisees and establishing new French Fry Heaven locations, the restaurant franchise looks for candidates who are dedicated to make customers smile. A history with management, sales and a strong connection with one’s community are also important.

 

 

*Belgian-style French fries are freshly cut, irregularly shaped fries that usually include the potato’s skin. Fried twice, Belgian-style frites are known for their crispy exterior and fluffy, potatoey interior. Served in a paper cone, Belgian-style fries aren’t tiny shoestrings, they’re at least 10 millimeters in width.

TapSnap, the digital photo booth franchise


Most often, candid photographs become the favorite images from an event. From corporate parties to weddings and birthday bashes, unposed pictures always possess the most earnest smiles. Professional photographers often fail to capture these impromptu moments; they can’t be everywhere at once.

 

TapSnap, a portable photo booth franchise, has changed how photographs are taken, shared, printed and edited  during life’s major moments. TapSnap has made it easier, faster and smarter.

 

Attendees of corporate events, weddings and other festive events can take photographs and record videos with TapSnap and instantly share them via social media. Before sharing, guests can edit photos, draw on them digitally and even instantly print hard copies of their favorite snapshots without needing to order prints.


For TapSnap franchisees, business is a breeze. Each TapSnap “booth” is portable and easy to setup within 15 minutes. Once a TapSnap photo booth is fully functional at an event or party, little help or intervention is required on the part of the franchisee.

tapsnap franchise

The franchise’s self-serve kiosk business model makes TapSnap an ideal business opportunity for entrepreneurs seeking a second income stream. Most events are on the weekends or in the evenings, making it even easier for an entrepreneur to keep his or her full-time job when starting their TapSnap franchise. Some franchisees generate enough business that they are able to work part-time while earning full-time income.

 

Currently, TapSnap is expanding but only licensing franchises in a limited number of territories.
