How did you get into the industry?
Our love of comedy and being able to show off the city really made us want to do the Funny Bus. There is nothing better than hearing guests laugh and want to come back!
What’s New in the Business or in the Franchise Model?
The best thing about comedy is its always changing but the model and the franchise is a simple basic concept that is easy to relate to and implement.
Where do you See Opportunities or Challenges for the Franchise/Business Moving Forward?
I think any city that has a close airport, some historical aspects and/or a college area is a great opportunity for a Franchise to come in to. I think the biggest challenges will be weather related. A city with lots of snow may be challenged in those colder months. I mean the buses are equipped with heat, and most cold weather climate areas have people used to going out in that weather, however driving around in snow may be the biggest challenge.
What is your Goal for the Business Moving Forward?
Our goals are the same as they are now. Have fun and enjoy doing what we are doing, bring laughter and something unique to new cities and let some other Franchisee’s in on the fun.
