Valhallan Soars to Record Growth in March

Bringing our unparalleled youth esports training to over 10 new arenas in markets nationwide.

We couldn’t be more excited to share that we’ve recently awarded over 10 franchise agreements with four locations in Las Vegas, NV, two in San Antonio, TX, and new arenas in other markets across New York, New Jersey, California, Pennsylvania, and Iowa. All locations were confirmed in March, marking our strongest month of franchise growth to date as we close in on Valhallan’s first year of franchising.

The development is part of our ongoing initiatives to grow our global footprint to bring structured and educational gaming to youth gamers and affordable business opportunities to entrepreneurs looking to break into the rapidly expanding esports industry. Valhallan’s growth at this stage exceeds that of Code Ninjas, the first brand from our parent company, FranchiCzar, and now the largest STEM franchise in the nation.

"Valhallan has become the largest and fastest-growing esports franchise in just our first year, and the exceptional growth in March primes us for continued expansion throughout 2023 as we bring our concept to new markets," said David Graham, founder and CEO of Valhallan and FranchiCzar, Valhallan's parent company. "Esports is a multi-billion-dollar industry with no shortage of interest, so we're proud to provide opportunities to expand in this growing industry. We look forward to continuing to expand our services and bring arenas to more cities this year."

Serial entrepreneurs David and Leslie Glick of Syosset, NY, new franchise owners, chose Valhallan due to the innovative nature of the business and the positive impact the arena will have for youth gamers in their local marketplace.

"After extensive research into esports and franchise opportunities, it was clear that Valhallan was the right choice for us," said David Glick. “Valhallan has everything we were looking for - programming, support, industry knowledge, and a plan for continued growth. We're excited to bring Valhallan to our community and provide a great environment to develop the next generation of players."  

Our continued expansion follows a successful first year for Valhallan, which included three esports league acquisitions, the creation of the Valhallan Esports League, and the launch of the first-annual youth esports tournament Rise to Ragnarök. Valhallan is targeting rapid growth across North America and the U.K. with plans to open 75 additional arenas worldwide.

Based in Pearland, TX, we are expanding nationwide through franchising. Valhallan is actively seeking potential franchise owners across major markets in the U.S. and the U.K. The initial investment for a Valhallan franchise is approximately $52,950 to $201,400 in the U.S. Prospective franchisees in the U.K. can contact us for pricing information.
