“I was completely shocked when they announced me as the Franchisee of the Year! I am so grateful for this recognition and want to thank all those who have supported me along the way, from my team at Altitude Kissimmee to the corporate office. It takes a village, and I couldn’t have done it without everyone involved,” said Hinchman.
Before becoming the managing partner of Altitude Trampoline Parks Kissimmee and Sanford, Hinchman was a professional baseball player who later become deeply involved in the fitness industry. He also has nearly a decade of experience in franchise development and regional franchise operations under his belt.
“I couldn’t have asked for a smoother transition to becoming an Altitude Franchisee,” says Grady. “They made it ridiculously easy to get started, even in the middle of the Pandemic!”
Since then, Hinchman has led the charge in building up his locations’ memberships through Altitude’s recently launched membership program. Even though the membership program is less than 3 years old, Hinchman’s location now has more than 17,000 members.
