Welcome to the Business Briefcase, everyone!

I hope everyone has enjoyed their week thus far, and is ready to digest some Business news.

If not, this is the print edition. Set it down and come back later. The information won’t change, I promise.

And fulfilling another promise, I chased away all the bad spirits poisoning the Briefcase with only closing items. This week’s edition has no closings, actually.

Let’s get to it, shall we?

I’d recommend waiting a bit after eating before trying out this first place.

Elevate Trampoline Park is set to open in February at 701 N. 137th Ave. in Goodyear.

Elevate has 23,000 square feet of activity space, featuring trampolines (obviously), dodgeball, foam pits, a rock wall, and various other fun-sounding options.

There hasn’t been a hard opening date set, but pre-sale tickets are available for purchase. Waivers are also available to fill out online or download and take in once opened.

The photos of the place look pretty impressive, like a cross between Tron and American Gladiators. You might not get hit with a rocket-fired tennis ball, but it looks like you’ll work up a sweat.

For information, visit elevatetrampolinepark.com or call 602-795-0755.

The Iliad Academy Preschool has announced plans to open a new location, Iliad at Desert Hills, in Buckeye at 20909 W. Yuma Road, at the Yuma Road and Verrado Way intersection.

The preschool is “dedicated to offering a safe, educational environment that promotes creativity, self-worth and intellectual development, providing an expansive, educational foundation that helps children transition into the kindergarten classroom and, eventually, the world,” as said in a press release.

The Iliad Academy’s other location in the West Valley is 19408 W. Catalina Drive, along Jackrabbit Trail north of Thomas Road. The Iliad at The Lighthouse has been offering classes for youngsters for eight years at that location.

For information or to enroll, call 623-474-6328 or email Eve Cunningham at ecunningham@theiliadacademy.com.

Last week, we mentioned Sunrise Donuts along Rancho Santa Fe Boulevard in Avondale packing up and moving north to El Mirage. Here are two related tidbits of information.

Fans of Sunrise Donuts in the West Valley won’t have to wait long to get their fix. A new location is going in at the northwest corner of Estrella Parkway and Goodyear Boulevard in Goodyear.

There’s a big sign that says “coming soon” above the location.

Check back for more details on an opening date in a future edition of the Briefcase.

The AZ Fry Guy took over the location of the old Sunrise Donuts at 13048 W. Rancho Santa Fe Blvd., in Avondale.

The restaurant serves fried renditions of chicken and fish dishes with various sides.

For information, stop by the restaurant or give it a call at 480-269-2873.

That’s all for this week, folks. Thanks for tuning in.

As always, send questions, tips or comments to smcowen@westvalleyview.com or to @ShaneMcOwen on Twitter.

Take care, and have a great rest of the week!
