New Delhi, India (PressExposure) August 03, 2011 -- Children are the world's most valuable resource and the best hope for the future. In the fast moving world, young parents are becoming increasingly conscious about the need to creatively engage the spare time of their small kids through various playful activities, for honing various vital traits that are outside the purview of formal education. Thus, SPORTYBEANS has formed a trail - blazing and enriching journey, to groom kids using a novel approach. SportyBeans introduces pre-school and primary school kids, to a wide range of sports, through exciting, fun filled and structured games and activities.
The company is all set to embark its presence for the very first time in Bangalore with the route of franchising. From the Franchisee point of view, this is a low investment and high return business model, which a franchisee can take up as an additional avenue of income, as it requires a maximum of 3-4 hours per day at the upper end of the learning curve. SportyBeans currently has 7 centers across 4 cities in India and are in the process of taking admissions for its Whitefield Centre, at Bangalore. The company is looking towards signing up at least 50 centers in the next two years, each with average enrolment strength of 40-60 kids. The area requirement for the SportyBeans franchise is approx 1500 sq ft with the investment of INR 5-7lakhs.
Mr. Karan Sareen, Director - Projects, SportyBeans opined "Apart from being a high potential business, the sense of fulfilment that comes from making a positive impact on a kid's future is the most striking aspect of the Sporty Beans franchise opportunity. Our aim is to transform many lives across the Indian landscape, by introducing its development physical fitness and sports program to as many kids as possible." Though at a nascent stage, the Pre-school industry in India with a current estimated size of Rs 7000 crores is expected to top $ 1 billion by 2012, clocking a growth of over 28 percent per year. There is a huge growth opportunity in the sector and SportyBeans have scaled up their operations through the franchise route. With the guidance of Franchise India, Asia's largest integrated franchise solution company, SportyBeans has chosen to focus on franchising their program all across India.
According to the analysis, India has made progress in terms of increasing primary education attendance rate and expanding literacy to approximately two thirds of the population. India's improved education system is often cited as one of the main contributors to the economic rise of India. The concept of pre-schools is relatively new in India, but the trend is fast growing due to increasing awareness about the fact that about 40% of a person's ability to learn is developed in the first four years of his life. The private education market in India is merely 5% although in terms of value is estimated to be worth $40 billion in 2008 and will increase to $68 billion by 2012.
