The Picklr has opened seven corporate-owned facilities in Utah and Colorado over the past three years. Now, the pickleball concept is expanding nationwide through aggressive franchise growth.
By the end of 2023, it will have seven facilities open, five under construction and 10 new leases signed. Its pipeline numbers 110 locations reaching one-third of U.S. states, having announced 80 new franchises in September and 30 in October. The latest announcement means the high-end pickleball facilities are on their way to North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and Washington, D.C. The plan is to have 300 locations open by the end of 2024 and 500 in the next few years. The Picklr also is reviewing plans for international expansion, which would start next year.
