Jump! Swim Schools’ new franchise locations

Jump! Swim Schools is ready to make a splash in 2022 with sites set to open over the next few months, including four new sites in November.

This will take the post-lockdown network of swim schools to more than 50 nationwide.

New franchise locations will be at Mernda West, Noble Park and Caroline Springs in Victoria along with Richlands in Queensland.

Three more sites are underway in Victoria, at Armstrong Creek and Tarneit, and in New South Wales at Marsden Park.

Jump! Swim School CEO Mark Collins said parents have been quick to return children to swimming
lessons after lockdown with a rise in demand for enrolments and an increase in the number of people looking to buy a business.

“Some people are looking to find better work-life balance after lockdowns, some are looking to diversify their businesses, others are looking to do something more meaningful and rewarding,” he said.

For one new franchisee, Michael Bezzina, investing in the Jump! Swim School Mernda West has given him the opportunity to switch careers.

A painter by trade for 20 years Michael saw a fresh opportunity to expand his business portfolio.

“Swim schools are in such high demand and Mernda is no exception, as a growing family suburb,” he said. “My site has already had an overwhelming response, with more than 230 children registering for classes before the doors even open.”

Jump! Swim School is owned by Belgravia Group, which includes Belgravia Leisure, Genesis, and The Coaching Zone in its portfolio.

Mark Collins said “We’re in growth mode – swim schools can barely keep up with demand and we’re eager to find more like-minded franchisees to partner with as we growth the network.”
