Alesia Visconti, CEO of FranServe Inc. says, “Franchising is a doorway for many people looking to be their own boss. A brand that makes our annual “FRAN-TASTIC 500” list demonstrates that it goes above and beyond the norm in helping people fulfill their dreams of business ownership through franchising! It’s a brand that sets itself apart!”
Brands were nominated and selected based on the following criteria:
British Swim School, known as the leader in “learn to swim” programs, was revolutionary in developing a water survival program that enables the very young to survive a water accident. Our fun and gentle program has been developed over nearly 40 years to ensure the best possible teaching method.
British Swim School is the premier survival swim lesson provider in the United States and Canada. Since 1981, British Swim School has rolled out to more than 200 locations across North America with our unique and highly effective teaching methods as a recognized trademark of the brand. Our curriculum-based program teaches water safety survival skills first, then stroke development skills, which we know is the safest, most effective way for our students to learn.
Clear Marketing Message
Our mantra, “Survival of the Littlest,” is the foundation for everything we do. We are dedicated to combating child drownings though education and water safety awareness – whether in our pools, in the classroom or somewhere else entirely!
Turnkey Model & Quick to Launch
British Swim School has created a model that eliminates build-out costs, allowing our franchisees to save valuable time and money that is often associated with commercial pool construction. Instead, we partner with the thousands of pools not fully utilized across the United States and Canada, including fitness centers, schools, hotels, sports clubs and other similar locations. These partnerships eliminate financial risk, offer ongoing flexibility and get our franchisees up and running fast!
Our corporate team works closely with franchise owners to find and gain access to the best possible locations available in their territories. We’ve established several corporate partnerships that bring locations to us, allowing franchise owners to easily find facilities and expand to new locations when they’re ready to grow!
Our comprehensive training consists of 10 days at our corporate headquarters in Virginia Beach, including training for business management, marketing and aquatics, followed up by additional in-water training for either the owner or aquatics lead – or both! New franchise owners leave our corporate headquarters with the knowledge they need to succeed, with a clear path forward on next steps towards a fully opened business.
Even with rigorous training, we know that a franchise needs support along the way. We provide ongoing coaching, mentoring and check-ins with each franchise owner based upon their specific needs. The support team of business coaches and subject matter experts is consistently available and engages in regular site visits with each franchise owner to ensure that their business is positioned for success and able to overcome any unforeseen challenges that may arise. Our system of owners is like a large family, coming together each year at our annual convention to learn, collaborate and have a great time!
