Hear From Happy Franchisees

  • Goldfish Swim School Testimonial Image - 1
    Having both grown up around the water, we know how important water safety skills are and are so thrilled to be able to help instill life skills in the kids we teach. Goldfish was a phenomenal resource for us to bring to our community. We are so happy to have a place here for all families while building a business and life for our own.
  • Goldfish Swim School Testimonial Image - 2
    I loved the idea of running and owning my own business in the community that I live in. It allowed for us to take a chance, forced us to work harder than we probably ever have and to build something in our community that is special – and that’s just something that money can’t buy.
