Welcome to Rebounderz of Newport News, VA
Rebounderz is a franchise out of Longwood, FL. In early 2010, Owner Helda Thomas and her son and daughter-in-law (Todd Foster, Christi Delgado) visited the Florida location and met with Franchise and Development's Mark Gurly, Al Palladino, and Rae LaRoche and fell in love with the concept! A few months later, Ms. Thomas decided to invest in the franchise to leave a legacy for her children. The original location was set to be in Chesapeake, VA, but after a few weeks of soul searching and numbers, Ms. Thomas thought the Newport News area would be more suitable for her mission. Not only did she want to leave a legacy for her children, but she wanted to provide a safe, fun, family oriented environment for the area that welcomed her from Panama with open arms over 30 years ago. A strong Christian woman with a close knit family, to include a long time friend Ms. Trudy Terry, knows the importance of family and a clean, safe environment for all to share.
