Franchise Opportunities for Veterans

Each year on Veterans Day, we recognize the brave men and women who have served our country in the United States Armed Forces. Their selflessness and sacrifices have made the United States what it is today, and that’s certainly something worth commemorating.

Finding a job after leaving the military is an important part of the transition to civilian life for veterans, with most seeking employment opportunities that align with the skills they’ve acquired in the military. These skillsets position hard-working, passionate veterans to succeed as entrepreneurs through the unique opportunity of franchise ownership. In addition to dedicating their lives to a mission that’s bigger than oneself, veterans possess many qualities that make them an ideal candidate for British Swim School franchise ownership! And to help make this transition even easier, we offer veteran discount incentives for qualifying candidates!

British Swim School: A Top Franchise Opportunity for Veterans

According to the Pew Research Center, a majority of veterans say their military service was useful in giving them the skills and training they needed for a job outside the military. We agree! There are many skills learned in the military that translate to effectively running a British Swim School franchise – from leadership experience to following proven systems, effective communication skills and problem solving!

Brian Garrison, President of British Swim School and former Navy pilot, understands the advantages for veterans firsthand.


“Veterans emerge from service with many of the skills necessary to be successful business owners. Our low investment, quick to launch franchise opportunity is great for those looking to apply their strong leadership experience, their ability to work as a team within a larger system and their problem-solving skills to achieve financial independence in the next phase of their lives.”

Support a Mission That’s Bigger Than Oneself

Many veterans were drawn to enlist in the armed forces to make a difference in the world. At British Swim School, our system of independently owned and operated franchises is a similar purpose-driven mission: to protect every life from drowning through education and water safety awareness. For nearly 40 years, British Swim School has been dedicated to teaching water survival and swimming skills to children as young as three months old. British Swim School owners are passionate about teaching an essential life skill and have dedicated their professional lives to combatting the troubling child drowning statistics.

Leadership Experience

For any business, strong leadership skills across all levels of the organization are critical to growth and success. Fortunately, entrepreneurs with a military background are better equipped to take on the responsibility of franchise ownership due to their military experience. Members of the military take their leadership responsibilities seriously and are prepared with the skillset necessary to implement growth strategies and to ensure that employees are motivated by, and committed to, the success of the organization.

Execute Standard Operating Procedures

Veterans, more than most anyone else, understand the importance of following procedures, training programs and other systems in order to be successful, making them strong candidates for owning and operating a franchise. Franchising provides a ready-made business model with the training necessary for franchise owners to be successful quickly. At British Swim School, we’ve spent nearly 40 years perfecting our business model and provide everything that a franchise owner needs, from in-depth training to ongoing support once your British Swim School is up and running!
