Franchise Development Pro Has Positive Experiences with the Family-Friendly Entertainment Brand 

In Mike Stout’s new role as vice president of franchise development for Altitude Trampoline Park, he will lead the company’s franchisee recruitment, real estate and construction activities.

“I am excited about the prospect of building upon the established momentum driven by the Altitude franchise support teams and franchisees. The potential for further growth for family indoor entertainment centers in the U.S. presents a promising opportunity that I am keen on contributing to,” Stout said.

While Stout’s knowledge of Altitude Trampoline Park stems from his family’s visits as customers, his hiring came about after an executive recruitment firm contacted him about a franchise development opportunity with Indoor Active Brands, the parent company to Altitude Trampoline Park and its sister brand, The Pickle Pad. In a discussion about the Altitude brand’s momentum, CEO Mike Rotondo honed Stout’s interest.

A Career in Franchise Development 

Stout’s career in franchising began three decades ago as a multi-unit franchise operator of Subway and Baskin-Robbins. Having hands-on experience as a franchise operator and working with the support teams were invaluable experiences for him. Yet most of his franchising career has consisted of working in franchisee recruitment and store development with brands such as Shipley Do-Nuts, Save-A-Lot Food Stores, Papa John’s, Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s. He has found fulfillment in “witnessing the transformation of entrepreneurs I recruited into thriving and successful franchise owners.” 

Not only has he changed entrepreneurs’ lives, but Stout also found love when he met his wife while attending Baskin-Robbins’ franchise school!
