Select A Site

You will work with a local real estate broker, picked by you, to help you find the ideal location. Once you find a potential site, you will work hand-in-hand with our construction team to develop layouts for your building, review architectural plans and ensure your construction schedule stays on time.

This process is typically the most time consuming. It is important to hire a qualified local real estate broker, architect and contractor to ensure you can get your Pump It Up open as soon as possible. The entire process can take anywhere between 3 and 8 months.

We have everything you need to know on how to open a store effectively and efficiently! The entire Store Opening Process can take anywhere between 3 and 5 months.
