British Swim School Expands Once More with First Ever South Carolina FranchiseeBritish Swim School - the premier survival and stroke development provider, awarded two new territories recently in Charleston, SC. This marks British Swim School's first ever franchise in the Palmettos State. “Charleston is a market we've always believed could benefit from a strong British Swim School presence” says President Brian Garrison. “We look forward to launching our presence in this family-friendly market and to introducing British Swim School's well-renowned program to the next generation of young swimmers in South Carolina." British Swim School of Charleston was awarded to Bryan and Katie Cook, who - alongside their crew of four young boys - plan to take a collaborative approach to running their new business. Bryan currently works as a Procurement Manager, and we expect his business acumen will translate well into running a successful, profitable business. Bryan and Katie immediately loved the mission of British Swim School, and shared with us that as they met with the team and investigated our business, there was a culture of trust that was apparent in the system. According to Bryan:
“When we met with the team, we felt comfortable and knew that this was a group of people we would enjoy working with. We look forward to wearing the British Swim School shirt in our community!”In conjunction with the British Swim School Cares Campaign™, which provides an environment that enables the continuance of our critical mission of teaching water safety for students of all ages and abilities while addressing the health and safety concerns presented by COVID-19, the Cooks plan to launch their business this Spring. Acquired by Buzz Franchise Brands (BFB) in early 2019, this premier swim school brand is the latest addition to the BFB family, which includes Pool Scouts, a pool cleaning and maintenance company, and Home Clean Heroes, a residential cleaning company. British Swim School currently operates over 215 schools across the United States and Canada, and is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2021! British Swim School has built a strong reputation in the industry, recently listed among Inc magazine's Fastest Growing Companies, ranked #203 in the esteemed Entrepreneur Franchise 500 list, and #14 on the Top Franchises Under $150k, and was recently awarded Franchise Business Review's "Franchisee Satisfaction" list for 2021.
