Premier Platform Company for Indoor Entertainment Concepts Expands Operations and Development Teams to Drive Growth

Indoor Active Brands, a platform company that focuses on indoor entertainment concepts, announced today the appointment of multiple roles in franchise development and operations departments, effective immediately. As this family of brands spearheads growth in the “eatertainment” and family entertainment spaces, their leadership team continues to expand.

Transitioning from their roles at Altitude Trampoline Park to sister company The Pickle Pad, Robert Morris will serve as Vice President of Development and Kailee Apodaca as Director of Franchise Development. Prior to his role at Altitude, Robert Morris held leadership roles with Kings Dining & Entertainment, Drive Shack and Andretti Indoor Karting & Games. Kailee Apodaca’s experience prior to Altitude comes from Drive Shack, Patina Group and Kings Dining & Entertainment. Their combined experience with destination driven entertainment brands differentiate themselves from others in the emerging pickleball sector, as they are skilled in launching and operating brands that appeal to consumers with unforgettable guest experiences that feature both food and engaging activities.

Reaching great success in their roles at Altitude, the pair have plans to build upon their experience in the industry with ambitious expansion at The Pickle Pad. With this change, Mike Stout has joined the team as Vice President of Franchise Development at Altitude.

“We are excited to use our experience to lead the transition of pickleball to entertainment space with the success of bowling and golf before it within Indoor Active Brands,” said Robert Morris, Vice President of Development at The Pickle Pad. “The potential of expansion for The Pickle Pad is endless, as the popularity of the sport soars and consumers turn to social gaming to gather in groups and enjoy time together. With the location in Tallahassee set to open this month, a deal signed in Scottsdale, AZ, and many more in the works, we envision The Pickle Pad being the center for active fun in communities across the nation.”

Established by NRD Capital, Indoor Active Brands utilizes industry experience in the family entertainment and restaurant industries to support and assist its franchisees.  Indoor Active Brands has recently launched The Pickle Pad’s franchising program and plans to open its first location in Tallahassee at 1925 N. Monroe Street in Spring 2024. The 27,000-square-foot facility will feature multiple pickleball courts with casual guest seating, Crave Social Eatery, a full-service restaurant and bar, elevated private areas with social gaming as well as multiple green spaces full of exciting yard games for all ages.
