Ranked A Top Franchise In Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500®
BRITISH SWIM SCHOOL RANKED A TOP FRANCHISE IN ENTREPRENEUR’S HIGHLY COMPETITIVE 42nd ANNUAL FRANCHISE 500®
Omaha, NE. (January 21, 2021) –British Swim School recently earned a spot in Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500®, the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking. Placement in the Franchise 500® is a highly sought-after honor in the franchise industry and 2021 marks the 8th consecutive year British Swim School has been on the list. Recognized as an invaluable resource for potential franchisees, the Franchise 500® ranks British Swim School as #222 for its outstanding performance in areas including unit growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power.
“2020 was a challenging year for everyone, but it was also a year of unusual opportunity,” says Jason Feifer, Entrepreneur editor-in-chief. “Franchises were able to be nimble and innovative, serving the needs of franchisees and customers in ways that will resonate for many years to come. We believe that, when we eventually look back on this time, we’ll see it as a moment when many brands defined themselves for the future.”
In Entrepreneur’s continuing effort to best understand and evaluate the ever-changing franchise marketplace, the company’s 42-year-old ranking formula continues to evolve as well. The key factors that go into the evaluation include costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. Each franchise is given a cumulative score based on an analysis of more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500® in ranking order.
“We are honored to once again be part of the Franchise 500,” said Brian Garrison, British Swim School President. “We were able to open five new locations in five states during a pandemic, and we were thrilled to welcome two new multi-unit owners in December alone. We are excited to carry this momentum over into 2021.”
Over its 42 years in existence, the Franchise 500® has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for potential franchisees. British Swim School’s position on the ranking is a testament to its strength as a franchise opportunity.
