Why Us?

Staying Several Strokes Ahead of the Competition

When our franchisees think of Goldfish Swim School Franchising, LLC, they think of more than just a swim school franchisor. We are a team of individuals passionate about changing lives and saving lives through a proven process our learn-to-swim facilities utilize. Through this time-tested curriculum and philosophy that we call The Science of SwimPlay®, we have discovered that children learn best through guided play and in a safe environment. This philosophy has helped us become the premier brand in this recession-resistant industry.

The Goldfish franchise system uses methods that are tried and true over a period dating back to the opening of Goldfish Swim School-Birmingham in 2006. Combine these time-tested training and franchising processes with our fun, unique culture and dedicated franchisees, and you have a successful business that swims far ahead of the competition. We are proud to be experiencing a 40% year-over-year growth from a location perspective and enrollment growth at our locations as well.

From site selection, to design and construction, to first-class training and support - we provide in a family-friendly environment, it’s easy to see why we have grown to nearly 100 thriving locations in just 10 years.

What Our Franchisees Are Saying

  • Goldfish Swim School

    "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

    "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."
  • Goldfish Swim School

    "Goldfish Swim School is committed to their core values and works hard every day to make our system better. That level of dedication and commitment to being the absolute best in class is what continues to motivate us to continue to reinvest in the business with new locations."

    "We were very impressed with the mission - to teach kids to swim and be safer around the water. We knew there was a need for swim lessons in our area and Goldfish was a great partner to help fill this need. We were inspired with the Goldfish marketing, message, curriculum and the support we received (and continue to receive) from the Franchise Office."
