Fun Fest Franchising (UK) Limited

Company Overview

Fun Fest Holiday Club offers children a choice about how they spend their holidays.  With a menu of exciting activities for every morning and afternoon, children can plan their own individual holiday programme.  There are activities to suit everyone; from Sports Action, Mission Impossible and Great Outdoors to Master Chef, Pottery, jewellery Making and Beauty School.

We are Ofsted registered, we take children from 3 years and we open for full working days.  This enables us to offer working parents the solution to their holiday childcare dilemmas.

Franchise Overview

Sarah Beattie set up the first club in Solihull 9 years ago.  The first franchisees were closely connected to this club and were keen to work with Sarah to set up their own clubs.  All continue to operate successfully and so we know that we have a strong business model that can be replicated.  We launched our national franchisee recruitment programme in Spring 2017 and are now working with our first wave of new franchisees.

Training is a minimum of 5 days with the Fun Fest team, which can be taken in one block or over several weeks.

Half is spent in the clubs for operational and safeguarding training.  The other half practically addresses the business and marketing aspects of running your business.

Your Regional Director will support you throughout and be there on your opening day to ensure it all runs smoothly.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

Most administration can be done on a flexible part-time basis from your home, although there will be some meetings, site visits and promotional work to attend to. 

This is a seasonal business and so you will work more hours in the build up to and during the school holidays.  You may wish to work at the club yourself but by employing a good team of staff this is not necessary.
