How Franchising Opportunities Could Turn You Into the Next Alan Sugar - 5 Reasons Why Swim Franchises Are a Top Choice

The thought of being their own boss inspires many people to snap up a franchising opportunity. On the face of it, buying into a franchise seems like a low risk way of becoming a small business owner. But are franchises really that good and is it possible to make a success of a swimming franchise business?
Why Choose a Swim Franchise?
The beauty of swim schools is that swimming is a perennially popular activity with families all over the UK. Millions of parents take their children to swim lessons every year and swimming lessons are unlikely to go out of favour any time soon. All kids need to learn how to swim and since most parents have neither the time nor the inclination to teach their children the art of swimming, it falls to swimming instructors to do the job instead. This makes a swimming franchise opportunity an excellent choice for anyone with an interest in teaching children and adults how to swim.

Can the Combination of Franchising and Swimming be a Success?

In order for any business to be successful, you have to be willing to work hard. A franchise is no different, except in this case you have the backup of an established franchisor to provide support and advice. A swimming franchise is no different to any other type of franchise, but it does offer a number of advantages over some of them.

1. Low start up costs âEUR" unlike some large franchise
opportunities, a swim franchise does not require a significant financial investment up-front.

2. No property or equipment required - since you are essentially working out of leisure centres and pools, you don't need an office, stock or vehicles.

3. Can be operated in any geographical area âEUR" swim classes take place all over the country, so you are free to pick and choose where you start your business, subject only to the franchise business opportunities available in your chosen area.

4. The more effort you put in, the more the business will grow âEUR" swimming lessons rely very much on positive word of mouth. If children and their parents are happy with the instruction they receive, they are more likely to keep coming back and recommending the service to their friends and family.

5. Feel-good factor âEUR" itâEUR(TM)s a great feeling knowing that you have made a positive difference to a child's life. Children who can swim are far less likely to have a water related accident, so potentially you and your employees are saving lives.
