New Kixx Academies Launch in East Yorkshire & Burnley

29th March 2024

This April, the Kixx franchise family grows even further with the launch of two new franchises in East Yorkshire and Burnley.

In East Yorkshire, Aaron Gouldthorpe, a 27-year-old PE specialist, takes the lead, fulfilling his dream of owning a coaching business and inspiring the next generation. 

New Kixx franchisee, Aaron, and his fiancé, Kylie Mitchell, have exceptional experience in helping children across their respected careers.

Aaron not only works as a PE specialist for nurseries and primary schools throughout Hull, but also spends time coaching for the youth team at Hull City AFC.

To top off Aaron’s experience even further, he’s no stranger to Kixx, having coached at neighbouring franchise, Kixx Hull, for just under a year before accepting his full time role as a PE specialist.

Long term partner and fiancé, Kylie, is a support worker in a children’s home, so together they have a remarkable background in helping make a difference to children’s lives. 

Helping Build A Better Life For Our Family With A Kixx Academy

Aaron commented: “Building my own coaching business is something I have thought about for several years now, and when the opportunity came to become a Kixx franchisee, it’s an opportunity I just had to take.

“I know the brand very well, with it’s caring and driven values certainly matching up to my own. Both myself and my very supportive partner, Kylie, are so excited to be launching our own Kixx academies. It’s just a wonderful opportunity to help children in our region and help create a better life for our family,”

Kixx East Yorkshire will make its grand debut in the last week of April, with academies in Scarborough and Bridlington. 

Before the grand launch for Aaron and his team, we also have our new franchisees at Kixx Burnley set to open their doors to the public during mid-April.

New Franchise Owners Also Parents To Kixx Members

Our franchisees for Kixx Burnley have their own amazing background and incredible reasons for joining our franchise family.  

They are both highly experienced and talented teachers, and whilst that’s an incredible skill to bring as a franchise owner, the reason why they became franchisees, to us, is simply awesome.

Kixx Burley’s owners are not only amazing education specialists, but they are also parents to existing Kixx members.

After receiving such a fantastic experience for their own children, they enquired even further into Kixx, looked at the opportunity of starting their own Kixx academies, and the rest will now become history.

It’s been a remarkable start to life for both franchise owners as collectively they have around 400 children booked on ready to enjoy a free Kixx session during April.

Exciting times for Kixx with even more talented people joining to our Kixx franchise family and we can’t wait to see what the next few months bring.
