5 reasons to become a Lollipop's franchisee

When becoming a franchisee, it’s important to choose a franchise that’s best suited for your needs, and those of your family. Going forward, these decisions can be the leading factor in your journey to franchising success.


Our spotlight franchise this month: Lollipop’s Playland Centres.


The Lollipop’s franchise story began in New Plymouth, New Zealand in 1993 when Alan and Rose Grant opened the very first Lollipop’s Playland and Café. The Lollipop’s idea hatched when the pair noticed that children weren’t visiting fast food restaurants for the food – but for the playground instead. With this in mind they set off to create a children’s playground concept that would provide a unique and exciting place for children to play.


Company Directors Tim Newman-Morris and Bret Stremski have been successfully operating Lollipop’s Playland within Australia and Indonesia, and now the United States, for over 20 years. Currently, there are over 32 playlands trading with several more in development, including an expansion to Long Island City NY, beginning operations soon.


The Lollipop’s business model is built upon years of success and expertise. By becoming a franchisee with Lollipop’s playland, you’ll benefit from:



New to franchising or operating a playland business? No problem! Lollipops will take you through a full training program at the Melbourne head office. When you are ready to open your Lollipops franchise, you will be supported by experienced Lollipops employees during your first few weeks of operation, as well as during your ongoing operations.


      2. MAKE IT YOUR OWN:

Although Lollipop’s Playland & Cafe is a franchise system, we encourage franchisees to make your business your own. Other than a few standards and rules that need to be adhered to, you will have the flexibility to be a hands on operator – it’s the best of both worlds. You’ll be in business for yourself, but not by yourself.



Lollipop’s is a national brand name in Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia & the United States. You can take advantage of the existing brand awareness and name Lollipop’s has built by joining an established business – you won’t be working from the ground up. In addition, you’ll enjoy a national marketing plan that benefits the entire Lollipop’s network.



The Lollipop’s model encourages hard work, but it also wants you to live a balanced & happy lifestyle. Through team support and a tried & tested successful business model, you’ll find time to successfully operate your playland, whilst also having time for your life outside of work.



We don’t just handover the keys to a Lollipop’s Playland and Cafe and say “see you later.” You will receive complete assistance in setting up your own location. We’ll take you through a full training program at our Melbourne head office, and when you’re ready to open your location, you’ll have the support and experience you need to succeed. Your success is our success, and we promise to help you every step of the way.


This hugely successful franchise offers unique opportunities for an individual who’s ready to expand with  this dynamic company. Growing at a rapid pace, now is the perfect time to enquire about opening your own Lollipop’s or Kanga’s Playland centre.
