The Little Gym International, a children’s development and enrichment franchise with more than 300 locations around the globe, announced Slater Crosby as recipient of the company’s annual Franchise Owner of the Year Award.
Crosby is the owner of The Little Gym of Edina, 8223 Hwy. 7 in St Louis Park. He was recognized at the company’s yearly meeting in California.
Crosby said he and his wife appreciated the noncompetitive atmosphere, which he said was the opposite from what his daughter experienced while playing soccer as a child.
The couple decided to join in 2005 by opening their own location. Crosby has become a multi-year recipient of the President Circle Award and helped chart the course for curriculum enhancements. He has also been a field consultant for more than four years, a position in which he mentors other franchise owners.
