The Jump! Swim Schools is opening four new sites in November as the business reaches a post-lockdown network footprint of 50+ swim schools around Australia.

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

A further three sites are in development at Armstrong Creek and Tarneit in Victoria, and Marsden Park in  New South Wales.

The Belgravia Group-owned business has reported a 10 per cent rise in enrolments in New South Wales post-lockdown and in Victoria, enrolments in November since re-opening have risen 34 per cent when compared to the same time last year.

Since the group took over the franchise in 2019, enrolments are up 43 per cent across the network. 

Jump! Swim School CEO Mark Collins said “The number of new franchise enquiries has also risen significantly. This is due to a range of different factor and motivations. 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.”

At the beginning of the year Collins announced a relaunch of the franchise recruitment process and post-lockdown is now ready to continue with expansion.

“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.”
