Premier Children’s Soccer Franchise Listed as Leading Low-Investment Franchise


HARRISBURG, Pa. – Soccer Shots, the engaging children’s soccer program best known for its focus on character development, announced today that it has been ranked in Forbes magazine’s “Best Franchises to Buy” for the second consecutive year. Notably, the brand was rated fifth on the prestigious list of best low-investment franchises.


Forbes’ list of “Best Franchises to Buy” is an annual analysis that highlights 60 U.S. franchises that offer the best (and worst) opportunities for investors, created in conjunction with industry research firm FRANdata. The best franchises are separated into categories based on investment levels and evaluated by activity, performance and scale, including system sustainability and demand, value for investment, and franchisor support and stability.


Soccer Shots’ placement on the ranking is a strong recognition of the value and growth potential of the franchise opportunity and its position as a leading investment amongst low investment franchise concepts.


“We are proud to be recognized as a low-cost franchise that is seen by both franchisees and interested entrepreneurs alike as a valuable, profitable investment,” said Justin Bredeman, CEO of Soccer Shots. “Our franchisees are passionate about our mission and live that passion every day. In return, we do everything in our power to ensure they can make a living having a positive impact on young kids through soccer, so their success matches the investment they make in their communities.”


Aimed at positively impacting children’s lives, Soccer Shots strives to be the best part of a child’s week through best-in-class coaching, communication and curriculum. Serving children ages two through eight, each franchise emphasizes having the best coaches in their communities, an exceptional customer experience including ongoing communication and an expert-approved curriculum that aligns with early childhood education standards. The weekly programs, customized for three different age groups, teach children soccer fundamentals and character-building skills. Soccer Shots hosts private sessions through local schools and childcare centers as well as public programs, which are typically hosted through park districts.


For entrepreneurially spirited individuals interested in owning a Soccer Shots franchise, the typical franchise fee is $34,500. Plus, Soccer Shots is a proud partner of the VetFran program. Approved candidates receive 15% off of the total franchise fee. Ideal franchisees have a strong passion for making a positive impact on children and a desire to lead their own business. Soccer experience is not necessary to join the franchise, but knowledge and a dedication for the sport is preferred.
