Shifting Paradigm on Swim Schools

November 18, 2014 // Franchising.com // Goldfish Swim School opened its first franchise location in Birmingham, Mich. Now just 8 years later, with 15 locations in eight states, 450 employees and annual revenue nearly $14 million, Goldfish is arguably the country's fastest growing swim school franchises.

This metro-Detroit based franchise is not only in a strong growth pattern, but more importantly, the franchise has brought about a paradigm shift in how swim safety and lessons are presented to today's children, including:

  • Year-round swim instruction for children 4 months and up.
  • Small class sizes. (Max 4:1 student to teacher ratio)
  • Two heated indoor swimming pools kept at 90 degrees. (Air temperature kept at 92 degrees!)
  • Unique and educational teaching equipment.
