The Studio Grow Story


When his oldest daughter was young, Tim Alley was looking for family-friendly things to do. While there were wonderful options, they were mostly in a class format. Tim recognized the opportunity for something new - a place where families could drop in at their convenience for a variety of fun, educational activities. No membership needed, no reservations required, admission valid for the whole day, and something enjoyable for both children and adults. The financial success of the business would be completely dependent upon the ability to attract visitors, so the service would have to be excellent and reasonably priced.


Over time, Tim built Studio Grow into an award-winning business. In the summer of 2016, he sold the company to a new owner, who operates Studio Grow at Blackhawk Plaza shopping center in Danville.


Tim now runs Rain or Shine - a drop-in play center in Berkeley.
