Season 5 Episode 10 | Sponsored Episode – British Swim School: Diving into the Canadian Market
In this sponsored episode, guest host Angela Coté chats with British Swim School president Ashley Gundlach, and director of aquatics, Melissa McGarvey. British Swim School is Canada’s premier “learn-to-swim” program, that offers water survival and stroke development instruction to children and adults of all ages. It offers a low investment opportunity and an easily scalable model for franchisees, who can benefit from the added bonus of joining a purpose-driven brand that provides vital life-skills within communities across the country.
As the recently appointed president of British Swim School, Ashley is responsible for driving all aspects of the brand forward, and leads the home office team to help support franchisees. As director of aquatics, Melissa supports franchise owners on the aquatics program, including teaching and training, as well as offering continual support for the program itself to keep students safe and comfortable in the water.
With three franchises in Canada and two more set to open in early 2022, British Swim School is eager to dive deeper into the Canadian market! Check out the episode to learn about the franchise opportunity including:
What sets the British Swim School model apart from other swim school concepts
The ideal traits and characteristics British Swim School looks for in franchisees (no, you don’t need to have swimming skills!)
British Swim School’s desire to help Canadians from coast to coast learn how to swim, and much more.
