Nora Farhat of Detroit Recognized as 2022 Franchise Business Review Franchise Rock Star

British Swim School, the nation’s leading “learn to swim” franchise company, is pleased to announce Nora Farhat, owner of British Swim School of Detroit, has been selected as a Franchise Business Review 2022 Franchise Rock Star. Farhat was selected from more than 25,000 franchisees, representing more than 200 brands that participated in Franchise Business Review’s research in the past year.

The Franchise Rock Stars recognized were nominated by their franchise brand leadership in one of eight categories as franchisees who set admirable examples when it comes to leadership, business acumen, financial and professional success, and contributing to their community. Categories included: Giving Back, Women, Millennials, Veterans, Family-Owned, “Freshmen”, Top-Performers, and Multi-Unit Owners.

The corporate team at British Swim School nominated Farhat in the Women in Franchising category.

“Nora opened her first British Swim School pool in 2015. Her prowess as a businesswoman has made her one of the highest producing franchisees in our system," said Ashley Gundlach, British Swim School President. “Her entrepreneurial fortitude is unmatched. She motivates those around her, demonstrating grace in her ability to manage the demands of her business – and she does it all effortlessly while she raises three beautiful daughters.” Farhat began her relationship with British Swim School when she was unable to find quality swim lessons for her children in her community.

“I am truly humbled by this honor. It represents the acknowledgment of a long journey with many difficult but rewarding steps,” says Nora Farhat, owner of British Swim School of Detroit. “As a leader, you are only as good as the team you work with and I am proud to say I have assembled an incredible team. I’m also grateful to be an example for my daughters that women can do anything.” As a multi-brand franchise operator, Farhat also owns a Mathnasium franchise and a Pool Scouts franchise, a testament to her Rock Star abilities.
