VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia., January 19, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — British Swim School, the nation’s leading provider of Learn to Swim, is pleased to announce its recognition as a Leader in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 franchise. The British Swim School was widely ranked 352 in the new report and is considered an invaluable resource for prospective franchisees. This marks the ninth consecutive year for the brand on the acclaimed list.

“It’s always an honor to see our brand listed among the best franchises in the country,” he said Ashley Gundlach, President of the British Swimming School. “Rankings like these are a testament to the hard work our franchisees put in every day to build businesses that protect the community.”

The British Swim School is capitalizing on pent-up demand and has added 38 new units in 11 states to its franchise roster, nine of which are current franchise owners expanding into new territories. Although 2020 saw the closure of all schools, 2021 proved to be the boost it needed – the British Swim School had enjoyed its strongest year ever 32 million dollars, with the majority of owners also enjoying their best year ever in terms of sales and profitability.

“The past year has been one of the most challenging for businesses in recent memory, which made compiling our 43rd annual Franchise 500 list more insightful than ever,” said the editor-in-chief of Entrepreneur Jason Feefer. “The companies included in this year’s list have shown us how resilient, supportive and agile can be to meet extraordinary challenges, and also underscored the boldness and innovation that defines entrepreneurship.”

The Entrepreneur Franchise 500 ranking is created after analyzing more than 150 data points, including costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. The 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores in these areas earn their place on the list.
