Premier Children’s Soccer Concept Ranked on Prestigious List of Largest United States Franchises
HARRISBURG, Pa. – Soccer Shots announced today that it has been ranked on Franchise Times’ Top 200+ list, the most comprehensive ranking of the 500 largest franchise systems in the United States. The distinguished list is based on Soccer Shot’s global system sales and number of locations, poising the franchise concept to be among the most reputable brands in the nation.
The acknowledgment of being named to this ranking verifies the exceptional growth the company has experienced in the past year. In 2018, the brand generated $55 million in sales and added 13 new territories. Currently, Soccer Shots has reached more than 223 locations throughout the United States and Canada.
“It’s truly an honor to be part of this list and recognized as one of the top franchise brands in the country,” said Justin Bredeman, CEO of Soccer Shots. “This milestone achievement signifies the brand’s momentum over the past year and our franchisees’ hard work to provide children across the country with the best soccer experience through top tier programming and coaching day in and day out. We can’t wait to harness this momentum for continued growth in 2020.”
Franchise Times uses a combination of companies’ voluntary reports and the most recent franchise disclosure documents to rank the 500 largest franchise systems in the United States. To qualify for the ranking, companies must be a legal United States franchise, with its headquarters based in the United States or at least 10 percent of their total units located in the country. Franchisees must also own at least 15 percent of the company’s total units.

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.
