Water Safety and Survival Franchise Gears Up to Offer Canadian
MISSISSAUGA, Ontario–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#britishswimschool—British
Swim School, the pioneer of non-traditional infant water safety
programs, has announced today that it will be diving into Canada with
With more than 130 pools operating throughout the United States and one
in Turkey, the first Canada pools will be corporate-owned and opening in
Mississauga, Ontario – the first located at the TownPlace Suites by
Marriott situated at 5050 Orbitor Drive in Mississauga, and second at
the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites located at 2565 Argentia Road in the
Meadowvale area of Mississauga.
Centered on a two-step principle of teaching water safety and survival
first, and swimming skill development second, the franchise operates a
year-round program with innovative teaching methods. Straying from the
traditional “set courses” model, students are placed in classes based on
skill level with specific objectives. Students are graduated from that
level and advanced to the next without a waiting period, an approach not
found in session driven programs.
“It was a natural progression to target Canada to enhance our
international presence,” stated Rita Goldberg, CEO and co-founder of
British Swim School. “Canada generally focuses on session-based lessons
versus our year-round approach proving the demand for our services.
We’re delighted to bring our concept to Canada and confident it will
make a positive impact with our Canadian neighbors.”
Anticipating growth of 50+ Canada locations by 2020, British Swim School
seeks local entrepreneurs to join as franchise partners to increase the
brand’s Canadian presence. Offering a low-cost investment opportunity,
British Swim School’s business model allows franchisees to lead classes
from pools in existing fitness chains, hotels, apartment complexes,
etc., rather than requiring a large expense for pool construction.
