Franchise Direct has published its ranking of the top UK franchises for 2019 and Puddle Ducks has made the top 40. The baby and child swimming school is amongst good company, placed alongside some of the UK’s best known franchise brands.
The top 100 list is produced every year by industry website franchisedirect.co.uk, to highlight and celebrate the nation’s most successful franchises. Organisations are ranked by taking into account criteria such as number of units, market expansion, revenue, number of years in operation, stability and growth.
When ranking the franchises, Franchise Direct also considers and publishes information on environmental policies, corporate social responsibility and the training and support offered to franchisees.
“It is an honour to have ranked so highly and wonderful to see Puddle Ducks mentioned alongside some huge household names,” said Jo Stone, co-founder of Puddle Ducks, “Since we launched the franchise model back in 2007 we have worked tirelessly to make sure that we are offering a robust business opportunity that enables people to teach children valuable life skills. The successes and the satisfaction of our franchisees are our most important barometers but this ranking is an important milestone.”
Puddle Ducks offers an award winning programme of swimming lessons to children from birth to 10-years-old, as well as to pre-natal mothers. 2019 has been a great year for the company so far; as well as being ranked at number 34 in the top 100 UK franchises, co-founders Jo Stone and Tracy Townend were jointly awarded the title of Woman Franchisor of the Year and Overall Woman in Franchising at the 2019 NatWest Encouraging Women into Franchising (EWIF) Awards.
