NEW YORK, NY – Amazing Athletes, the industry leading multisport enrichment program that is designed to empower children from ages 18 months to 12 years old, was identified by Franchise Business Review as one of the Most Innovative Franchises. Amazing Athletes is one of just 100 franchise brands to receive this accolade in the 2023 report.

To identify the companies on the list of this year’s Most Innovative Franchises, Franchise Business Review analyzed 18 months’ worth of data from nearly 38,000 franchisees representing more than 385 brands. Amazing Athletes franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including leadership, training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.

“Being recognized as one of the most innovative franchises of 2023 can be attributed to the guidance and support we offer our franchisees,” said Co-Founder and CEO of Youth Athletes United, Adam Geisler. “As we continue our nationwide expansion, we remain committed to actively listening to our customers and franchisees. New leadership positions, such as the Business Success Coach, and new offerings, such as Karate Zoo, show our unwavering dedication. This recognition is a testament to the passion and creativity of our team, as well as the remarkable children and families who make our program truly exceptional.”

Over the last two decades, Amazing Athletes has been inspiring active futures for children by teaching skills from 10 different sports in a fun, non-competitive, educational environment. Amazing Athletes offers programs for all ages by partnering with schools and communities, helping to set kids on a path to an active and healthy lifestyle by teaching them the basics of sports, health and nutrition. Introducing kids to a variety of sports and physical activities allows them to find what they most enjoy and can pursue as they grow. The brand’s industry-leading multi-sport enrichment helps develop key motor skills, promote teamwork, and inspire active futures.

The franchise's dedication to delivering top-notch sports programs has earned it a loyal customer base and established it as a trusted brand within the industry. With its strong momentum and continued expansion, Youth Athletes United is poised for even greater success in the future, and remains committed to maintaining its high standards of quality providing transformative first-sport experiences for kids. 

“For prospective franchisees, understanding which brands are the most innovative can help you make a confident and smart investment,” said Michelle Rowan, president & COO of Franchise Business Review. “Each of the companies on our list of the Most Innovative Franchises has developed and implemented products, processes, or services that enable and sustain growth and long-term relevancy.
