A franchise that’s going swimmingly
November 10, 2016
Michael Rogers, vice president communications for the Small Business Association of Michigan, talks with Chris McCuiston, co-founder of Goldfish Swim School Franchising (a member of the Inc. 5000 list of fast growing companies for 2016). Goldfish Swim School was founded in 2005. Jenny and Chris McCuiston took a concept that they formulated with nearly two years of research, and cultivated a business that provides results in the learn to swim environment. Their proprietary curriculum and systems were developed after traveling the country in search of the “best practices” to teach babies and young children how to swim. The first corporate store, in Birmingham Michigan, opened in 2006, and quickly saw success. Opening its doors with over 500 students at inception, Goldfish currently teaches over 12,000 students per month company wide.
