KISSIMMEE, FL, March 01, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Grady Hinchman, managing partner of the premier indoor entertainment concept, Altitude Trampoline Park, in Kissimmee, Florida, was recently recognized for his outstanding business performance as the "Franchisee of the Year" at the International Franchise Association's (IFA) 2022 Annual Convention taking place in San Diego, California.
"Since Grady joined our team in 2020, he has demonstrated extreme dedication to sharing what Altitude is all about with the Kissimmee community, and reached new heights when it comes to membership sales. Altitude Kissimmee consistently ranks as top a performer across our system," said Amy Phillips, President and CMO of Altitude Trampoline Park. "Grady is truly deserving of being named Franchisee of the Year with his grit and commitment to his business allowing him and his team to shine time and time again. We are incredibly proud of Grady's accomplishments and are honored to have him as part of the Altitude family."
The International Franchise Association has more than 1,400 brands and thousands of franchisees in their network. Every year through their awards program, the IFA recognizes individuals who contribute to making franchising the acknowledged leader in distribution methods, while spotlighting their accomplishments and innovations.
"It is an incredible honor to be recognized by the IFA, and I am happy to share the spotlight with our team. Since Altitude Kissimmee opened, our team has shown incredible drive to provide best-in-class service for our community and to uphold the values and vision of the Altitude Trampoline Park brand. Our collective efforts are what brought us to where we are today and we are grateful for what we have achieved," said Hinchman. "This award serves as an inspiration for us to continue the momentum we've developed over the past two years. I am part of an amazing ownership group, and the team we have in place is first class and a huge part of our success."
Prior to his ownership of Altitude Trampoline Park Kissimmee, Hinchman spent three years as a professional baseball player. With a deep understanding and appreciation for the importance of a healthy and active lifestyle, he committed to continuing working in the fitness industry. With nearly a decade of experience in franchise development and regional franchise operations, he has had a smooth transition into his ownership of Altitude.
Notably, Hinchman has achieved high-flying results despite pandemic-induced challenges by taking full advantage of Altitude's recently launched membership program. Since the leading indoor entertainment concept for active family fun rolled out the program in 2019, is has drove double-digit sales increases at many participating parks, including Hinchman's which recently crested well over 17,000 members. His continued commitment to providing fun, freedom and happiness to the residents of Kissimmee earned him recognition as Altitude's "Franchisee of the Year" at the brand's annual conference in September of 2021.
Springing into action to further promote active family fun across the Central Florida region, Hinchman recently acquired Altitude Trampoline Park Sanford and is slated to open a new park in Bradenton this coming summer.
