Bold Vision & Culture

We will make an impact by inspiringserving, and empowering our fellow team members & franchiseeschildren & families, and communities.

We set ambitious goals and will always strive to consider the long term implications of our decisions. 

We like to have fun, but we are serious about realizing our full potential and helping you achieve yours.

Proven Experience

Our leadership team successfully opened our first three locations within an aggressive 18 month timeframe and we have intimate knowledge of the decision criteria involved with opening your first museum, what fundamental changes occur when adding a second location, and then how the dynamics can shift yet again with the addition of a third location.  

Because we are still closely involved with the management of multiple Play Street Museum locations in a single market, we are able to continually test, learn, modify, and improve our systems, processes, and tactics.

While we have certainly made mistakes along the way, these mistakes have allowed us to hone in on precisely what works and what doesn't.  With our multi-unit scale we generate significant data and therefore continually analyze our efforts to discover insights that allow us to refine our best practices.

To many outsiders, creating a successful concept similar to Play Street Museum must seem rather straightforward and mindless - I am convinced this must be the case given the number of 'play places' that open up one day only to shutter their doors several months later.

Supplier Relationships & Buying Power

Over the past several years we have built an expansive supplier network and cultivated supplier relationships.  We have a strong track record of consistent growth and performance with our suppliers and therefore are able to garner preferred pricing.

As a component of our comprehensive growth strategy, we have negotiated volume based pricing concessions so that our franchise network can benefit directly in their market as we continue our geographic expansion.

Strong & Growing Brand

The Play Street Museum brand is a widely recognized and highly regarded brand in the market that instantly brings to mind a long list of desirable adverbs including the following:  educationally and developmentally relevant, engaging, clean, high quality, consistent, enjoyable to visit and adorable.

Play Street Museum is the market leader and innovative creator of a distinctive and unique small format children's museum concept that successfully delivers a dynamic and interactive experience purposefully designed to encourage a young child’s sense of independence, exploration, and creativity.  

Comprehensive Training

Our comprehensive training program covers the many aspects required to successfully start, operate, and grow your Play Street Museum franchise.

The training curriculum is delivered in four different formats: approximately 25% is classroom/team based; 25% is on site in an existing Play Street Museum location; 25% is on site at your new location; with the remaining 25% being web based.

Major topics areas include Museum Operations (staffing, software systems, guest relations, facility maintenance, operational procedures); Business Acumen (legal, finance, accounting, general administration, training); Growth & Development (sales, marketing, advertising, community outreach).

Our goal is to provide you with the tools and assistance you need so that you can maximize your effectiveness in positively impacting the lives of children in your community.

Ongoing Innovation

We are relentless about continually improving and refining our guest experience as well as our product and service offerings. On a routine basis we actively and critically review nearly every component of the Play Street Museum guest experience.  

In addition to the highly visible guest facing pipeline of innovation, we are investing with equal intensity in the systems and processes that will allow our team members and franchisees to not only deliver a consistent guest experience but to do so efficiently and profitably.

We believe strongly that continual innovation will remain a prominent marketplace differentiator that will allow Play Street Museum to continue its strong growth in the marketplace.
