The Business

How long does it take to be awarded a franchise?

The process can take anywhere from 6-10 weeks, depending on how long it takes to complete the proper due diligence. Once a candidate completes the recruitment process, our team will decide whether or not to award the franchise.

How long does it take to open a Little Kickers Franchise?

Once you are awarded the franchise, business can start once you attend and complete our Operator Training which is held five times per year. After Operator Training, it may take 6-8 weeks to launch your first venues.

How many venues do I need to open?

Little Kickers franchisees are full-time business owners excited about impacting as many children as possible during the week. The amount of venues will depend on the territory, but franchisees should desire to have at least 5 – 10 venues operating on weekdays and weekends.

How many employees will I need?

It is up to you to determine how many employees need to be hired in order to meet the demand. Established franchisees offer classes 7-day a week and have a team of part-time coaches and full-time employees that assist in the running of the business.

Can I hire someone to run my franchise?

Yes, depending on the circumstances. Our most successful franchises learn the business intimately before hiring an Operations Manager to oversee the day-to-day operations.

Do I need to have football coaching or playing experience to own a franchise?

No, playing and coaching experience is not a pre-requisite, but a passion for positively impacting children through football IS!

Carlo – Low Risk, Low Investment

We launched Little Kickers in Johannesburg, South Africa, in 2008! We had three children of our own under the age of seven that participated in various sports from a young age. Therefore, we understood that there was a lack of programs when it came to teaching football to the younger age-groups and we thought it was a good idea to bring Little Kickers to South Africa. What makes Little Kickers different is its philosophy, which we identify with, the quality of the coaching programme and the well developed business resources/systems. Little Kickers has a strong global brand identity and a rock solid foundation built by a professional and credible team of experts. A Little Kickers franchise is a low risk, low investment opportunity with good returns and a great work-life balance.
