Urban Air Adventure Park, the world’s leading indoor adventure park operator and part of the youth enrichment platform Unleashed Brands, has announced the latest addition to its growing family of franchisees, Pat Curry, of Waco, Texas. With an extensive background in franchising and investment, Curry has acquired two existing Urban Air locations in Amarillo, Texas, and Knoxville, Tennessee, and has secured franchise agreements for future development in Lubbock and Abilene, Texas, signaling significant expansion for the brand across these markets.
Pat Curry, alongside his son and Chief Operating Officer, Coleman Curry, brings a wealth of experience and a stellar track record in the franchise industry to the brand. Notably, Pat Curry was one of the largest and most successful Miracle-Ear franchisees, overseeing 110 stores and leaving a lasting mark in the hearing aid franchise sector. His franchising acumen spans a wide range of industries, from trucking and logistics to mining. Coleman Curry, a successful business operator in his own right, has a strong track record of managing and growing his own business, gaining respect among customers and employees along the way in the financial and commodity sectors.
"I'm thrilled to continue offering the Urban Air experience to families in Amarillo, Knoxville, Lubbock, and Abilene through businesses that positively impact children and families and make memories within each community,” said Pat Curry. "Partnering with Unleashed Brands equips us with the support and resources needed to ensure our operations deliver the ultimate customer experience."
As the new owners and operators of the existing locations in Amarillo and Knoxville, Pat and Coleman Curry are determined to implement a comprehensive strategy focused on safety, recruiting and retaining top-tier staff, and delivering an exceptional customer experience. Their strategies include a strong safety record, establishing a customer and employee-friendly culture, flexible scheduling, and forging robust relationships with local school districts to attract and retain outstanding employees.
Urban Air has garnered attention from seasoned, multi-unit entrepreneurs like Curry, seeking diversification opportunities while making a positive impact on children.
