For Freedom Fun USA co-owner Zack Masters, it’s always recess.

Zach co-owns the mobile party rental company with his father, Tim, and said he gets to test out the equipment on his father's land.

“My little sisters will have birthday parties, and we’ll have the water slides set up,” Zack said.

Tim said he had the idea to start the business five years ago when he spoke with a friend at the party rental company Hop N Party. Tim eventually bought a mobile laser tag system to start Freedom Fun USA.

The company specializes in activities such as laser tag, foam parties and bubble soccer, and offers popcorn, cotton candy and snow cone concessions, along with generator rentals and outdoor movies.

Zack said that one of the reasons the company has grown so fast is the positive reviews on Yelp as well as word-of-mouth recommendations.

“Our focus is on the customer service-based leadership,” Zack said. “Communication, quality [and] time management. We make sure all of our equipment is clean; we put the customer first.”

Tim has worked for Dell Inc. for 21 years and said one of the most important lessons he has learned is quality and customer service. For him the events bring back memories of coaching Zack in various sports when he was a child.

Zack stressed the importance of hiring the right coaches, being prepared for anything that could arise, and most importantly, remembering that any day at Freedom Fun USA could be a memory his clients will hold on to for a lifetime.

The Masterses plan to announce franchising opportunities for Freedom Fun USA in 37 states by late summer.

“I think this’ll be a really good fit for people,” Zack said. “You don’t need [a] brick-and-mortar [building]. We were running this thing out of our garage for a year or two. A stay-at-home mom [could run a franchise location]—or someone that is looking for a way to make some extra money on the weekends and have fun doing it.”
