The Wolf’s Take ????

Not gonna lie..this franchise looks fun AF!

Maybe I’m channelling my inner-child that loved throwing temper-tantrums, but the opportunity to blow off some steam and smash the shit out of a bunch of stuff with ZERO consequences sounds amazing.

Not to mention, the economics of the company owned location look pretty darn good – with adjusted profit coming in at about 1/3 the max investment!

Beyond providing “smash therapy” to customers, iSmash also does splatter paint sessions and axe throwing.


This place is basically an adult playground that could serve as a great event for birthday parties, corporate events, or just a fun day or night with some friends.

It’s early days for them, as they haven’t even been franchising for a year and have just 1 location sold in Tampa – but if you’re looking to get in on a concept early, iSmash could be a great opportunity for you!
