Choose A Site

You and a local real estate broker of your choosing will work to find the ideal site. Once you’ve chosen a potential location, our construction team will work alongside you to develop store layouts, review architectural plans and keep construction on time.

This typically is one of the longer parts of the entire process. It can take anywhere between 3-8 months to complete. That’s why it is so imperative to hire a qualified local real estate broker, architect and contractor to ensure your BounceU is open as soon as possible.
