Our mantra, “Survival of the Littlest” not only applies to our program aimed at enabling the very young to survive a water accident. It reflects the growing number of British Swim School Franchise Owners who began their journey as entrepreneurs with limited investment capital, who now are all now multi-unit successful business owners.

Find out more about how saving the lives of little ones, can create better lives for business owners.

No Buildout Costs

British Swim School has created a model that allows you to skip over the enormous amount of stress and disappointment that is inherent in commercial pool construction, by utilizing the plethora of “empty” pools across the country. At British Swim School, you don’t need to sell the crown jewels to be able to afford to open a business.

We Help You Find Multiple Pools

Our Franchise Owners enjoy a real estate program that helps determine the best possible locations available in their territories. Our Corporate Team will help each new owner gain access to these locations. And now, with partnerships with national fitness chains, many of the locations come to us!

Making a Living Saving Lives!

Sure, it’s great to have a business with a bottom line that’s longer than the English Channel, but that’s not the only reason we exist. British Swim School Owners are passionate about combatting child drowning, and love the fact that their business truly helps make a difference!

Survival of The Littlest

The common perception is that to create million dollar franchise businesses, you need a huge chunk of capital to make it happen. Not so at British Swim School. Our model allows entrepreneurs with limited capital, or who don’t want a 6 or 7 figure investment risk hanging over their shoulders, to launch their swim school and move quickly towards success. We look out for the little guys!

You Don’t Need $1 Million To Open A Swim School. 

At British Swim School, our Owners start with a relatively small amount of liquid capital to open their first locations. We contract with pools in Fitness Centers, Schools, Hotels, Sports Clubs and many more types of locations, bringing revenue to the host for an under-utilized loss leader facility. We have the Perfect win/win situation! 

We Don’t Go Overboard With Overhead. 

At British Swim School, our Owners don’t have to deal with exorbitant ongoing costs. The cost of water, pool repairs and daily maintenance, energy and all the other costs associated with owning a commercial pool are covered by the host. We’ve figured out how to sink costs to the bottom of the ocean!  

“What I like best about the business model is the small initial investment. It’s a very low risk to get started, versus going out and spending a million dollars to build a pool.”

-Becky Grindle, Franchise Owner
