We provide free assemblies for schools to promote the “Junior Game Creators” a fun (but still educational) after school club that helps kids develop a thirst for computer science and experience new elements of the national curriculum in an exciting way.

On the corporate side we host a whole range of different video game related events dependant on their needs. Your customers can rest assured that their children and employees are working with the best in the business.

We are looking for people like You to share in the growth, represent the brand and make gaming better by bringing people together.

  • Launch Program

    Gamewagon has developed a proven business formula that, with You, creates a virtuous circle of success. Every satisfied customer creates your next customer. Customer satisfaction forms the basis on which your business grows. There is perfect fate share – we succeed as you succeed.

    When you buy a franchise you are making a commitment to embrace our system and the culture that supports it. We have an established system in place that you will be trained in, these systems are designed to streamline productivity by  over-delivering on customer expectations to increase sales. We will teach you how to approach different customers, generate leads and convert them into raving fans.

  • Recognised Brand

    As a Gamewagon franchisee you get to use the Gamewagon brand name. This instantly enhances your position with a customer. They are aware that they are dealing with an established and reputable brand. Customers are savvy buyers, they research, they want to be reassured and will become your biggest advocates when you deliver.  Trading under the Gamewagon brand will give you the credibility and trust to get off to a good start!

  • Flexible Working

    Gamewagon franchisees work from home or a small office and our business model has the flexibility for you to tailor it to your personal circumstances or family situation. To begin with you will work “in the business” and deliver some of the parties, school clubs and events yourself. As your business grows you will start to work “on the business” and recruit Game Experience Managers (GEMs) that will provide you with more flexibility and freedom.

  • Ongoing Coaching

    Running your own business can be at first daunting. Deep down you have probably harboured the desire to do your own thing. You have probably shown entrepreneurial tendencies in your career to date.

    Owning your own business does not mean you are on your own. When it comes to building your own Gamewagon franchise, we will coach you through every step of the process. We use the word “coach” deliberately. We lead you to become the best you can be but it still needs You and your skills, passion, personality and determination to make it work.

    In the beginning we will be training you to get your business off the ground quickly. We then continue to work with you to help grow the business year on year.

  • Fantastic Fun

    When we started Gamewagon, over 3 years ago, we knew we wanted a business that created memorable, magical moments for kids in a unique way. We wanted to provide time-starved parents with a stress free and convenient solution to an annual problem; what to do for their children’s birthdays.

    With a Gamewagon franchise you not only get to enjoy being your own boss, but additionally, you share in the excitement, magic and appreciation of the events you create. The very nature of the job is fantastic fun which is why we are looking for fun people to work with us.

    Does this sound like you? If so give us a call and come and join the party!

What others say about us

Gamewagon provided a fantastic event. Their Game Experience Manager played it right in terms of involvement – he let us enjoy ourselves, but wasn’t prepared to accept any cheating from a competitive bunch. All levels of experience and abilities were accommodated, and even those who had never played consoles enjoyed the event. We also found some hidden talents in unexpected places. The team has been talking about it for weeks afterwards, and it has been one of the most successful events that we have held over the last ten years in terms of enjoyment and getting people to interact with those that they might not normally work with.

Just a note to say thank you for assisting us with our Gilgamesh staff party last night. The  dancing competition was a resounding success. It really pulled the group together as it allowed groups of people to compete against each other and generated a lot of interactivity, fun and laughter which was exactly our objective!  On top of this everybody got a good workout too.  Look forward to working with you soon.

The guys in the Gamewagon were absolutely brilliant! Even though we didn’t have many people walking by, the Gamewagon still had people playing inside and out. I couldn’t speak more highly of them both, they were brilliant throughout and I would love to get you guys back up again.
