PARENTREPRENEURS – Some Profiles

November 26, 2006 at 6:56 pm Leave a comment

 Brenda Dronkers took her 4-year-old son to a church festival with dozens of games and contests, but he kept returning over and over to the big inflatable slide and bounce house. That same week, her 11-year-old daughter came home from another fair, talking nonstop about jousting and sumo wrestling games that had involved inflatable structures.

Dronkers had an idea: Why not start a business providing children’s parties in a big, safe, clean warehouse filled with inflatable play equipment?

Seven years later, the Pleasanton mother is president of a $53 million company called Pump It Up — a franchise operation with 150 party centers in 41 states and an additional 75 centers getting ready to open.
