As the premier learn-to-swim franchise concept, we are excited to continue our growth as 2020 comes to an end. We recently announced a new multi-unit signed franchise agreement in Texas that will allow us to expand our reach. With 110-plus locations open and 137 in development across 30 states, we are excited to continue our expansion.
With a rising demand for safe, secure, and high-quality swim lessons, the two new schools will help grow our reach in the greater Houston market. These locations will add to Goldfish Swim School’s growing roster of four statewide schools operating in Carrollton, Katy, West Houston, and Sugarland. Fresh off the heels of our recent announcement of our multi-unit development announcement in New York, we are searching for continued ways to grow across the country with both single and multi-unit owners.
Kevin Coffman and Ryan Moon are joining the Goldfish family as the heads of this deal. Both natives to Houston, the 2-person team operates an Urban Air franchise that serves children with an ultimate indoor adventure park and party place. “The pandemic forced us to realize the tremendous value in having a robust portfolio to allow for balance and stability during times of uncertainty,” said Coffman. “As we looked to our future, we knew now was an opportune time to invest and be aggressive with our growth plans. Families will always prioritize the wants and needs of their children. With Goldfish, we know the importance of water safety and drowning prevention isn’t going anywhere – we’re able to provide children a lifesaving skill with the no. 1 brand in the space.”
Seeking to grow and diversify their premier child enrichment portfolio, the group invested with Goldfish Swim School and will debut their first school in the second half of 2021 located at 20251 Gulf Freeway in Webster. As owners of the real estate development, they aim to create a complete child-focused center featuring Goldfish Swim School, Urban Air, and D-BAT – a baseball and softball training facility.
“Despite the challenges brought on by the pandemic, we’ve had an incredible year and I could not be more proud of our franchise network and the new owners we continue to welcome to the Goldfish family,” said Chris McCuiston, CEO & Co-Founder of Goldfish Swim School. “Texas is an ideal state for our continued expansion as we look to further develop in Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth and beyond. We’ve built an incredible culture and as we remain focused on the continued growth of this brand, we aim to expand our footprint with franchisees like Kevin and Ryan who believe in our mission and vision.”When you’re ready to dive into your very own swimming school franchise opportunity, give our team a call today at (248) 801-1850 or contact us online to get started!
