We’re so excited to be making such a big splash in 2024 as we land another award from Entrepreneur Magazine! We have o-FISH-ally ranked among the top franchises in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Highly Competitive Franchise 500 AND have landed the spot as the #1 learn to swim concept! The news comes following the Franchise Times Fast and Serious Award and the Entrepreneur Top 200 earlier this year. 

Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 is the world’s first and most comprehensive franchise ranking. For 45 years, landing a spot on the Franchise 500 has been a highly sought-after honor in the franchise industry, highlighting a brand’s strength and stability for potential franchises. 

“Every brand on the Franchise 500 has its own unique story, but they all collectively make the same statement: Franchising is strong and resilient, is full of innovation and opportunity, and provides a powerful entrepreneurial path for many people,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur magazine. “Our 45th annual ranking is full of companies with fresh ideas, exciting business models, cultural sway, and the kind of business sophistication that will define the next 45 years and beyond.”

We are honored to have been included and to be growing and innovating as we swim our way through another year of teaching children how to be safer in and around the water. We’re looking forward to a great year – and you can be a part of it! Our franchise development team serves as the first of many resources at Goldfish Swim School and is available to talk more about franchise opportunities and available territories that would allow you to add Goldfish to your portfolio.
