This plan provides detailed information on the initial establishment and operation of Cabin Fever - Child Fun Center. The plan outlines the plans for business growth, methods, procedures for operation, and infrastructure.
Cabin Fever will offer young families in Bemidji, MN and the surrounding area a quality family recreation center, with jungle gyms, soft contained play structures, slides, and imagination-inspiring play areas for children ages 2 to 5. All equipment is safety-tested and approved, employees are trained in child safety and first aid. Parents will have special seating areas where they can watch their children play actively and safely, even in the coldest, darkest months of winter, and can purchase snacks and drinks from a limited selection while they wait.
Brian Solum (owner) and Derek Giesbrecht (advisor) are responsible for the design, building, and development of the daily operations outlined in this plan. Derek is the President of Soft Play, LLC, a leading indoor playground manufacturer, and has been in the Active Play industry for many years.
