It’s often the beginning of the year when people evaluate their career path, seeking ways to reinvent themselves. Opening a franchise serves as an excellent option for entrepreneurs, allowing them to capitalize on an established brand and infrastructure in an industry of interest. In the December issue of Entrepreneur Magazine, British Swim School (BSS, http://www.britishswimschool.com) was named within the Children’s Enrichment category of “The 10 Types of Franchises to Watch in 2015” (http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/239709). Although it must be noted that the article doesn’t endorse the companies listed, it affirms which industries show promise.
According to Entrepreneur, certain franchise categories have great potential to be successful in 2015, including Children’s Enrichment (where swimming lessons reside), E-cigarettes, Fitness, Pizza, Potatoes, Paint-and-Sip Studios, Property Management, Senior Care, Spa Services and Vending.
“It’s fantastic to be part of the Children’s Enrichment category, because we strongly believe in the lifelong benefits of swimming lessons,” said Rita Goldberg, founder and CEO of British Swim School (http://www.britishswimschool.com). “Our values are deeply rooted in saving lives, but we also instill a love for water, offer a great form of exercise and teach discipline. We believe that we do enrich the lives of our students and their families.”
Given the improving economic climate, ongoing community needs and a nationwide love of swimming, British Swim School appeals to a wide variety of franchisees. Franchise owners of British Swim School come from diverse backgrounds, but the opportunity is often attractive to swimming athletes who want to capitalize on their love for the sport. Parents are also compelled to learn more about the business once they experience their child’s transformation.
“Our low-cost franchise model attracts people who want to make a positive impact on their communities but don’t have deep pockets,” added Goldberg. “Our franchises can also be opened anywhere with a pool - water safety is important everywhere.”
The multi-million dollar swim industry has historically been an underestimated business opportunity. With year-round enrollment, long-term customers and affordable investment costs, British Swim School’s franchisees have the ability to bring in substantial revenue.
BSS’s unique model does not demand the significant upfront investment in expensive facilities like other swim school franchises require. Instead, BSS leverages existing facilities to minimize upfront investment and maximize returns.
