How much can I expect to earn?Read More
Because there are many unknown variables such as sales, location, occupancy and operating costs, financing terms, your ability to manage and control the business as well as other factors, we do not predict sales, costs or profits for any of our locations. However, we commit to work closely with you and do everything we can to ensure that your franchise is successful. Additionally, once you receive our Franchise Disclosure Document, we encourage you to discuss this opportunity with our existing franchise owners, an attorney and an accountant.
How long does the approval process take?Read More
That’s up to you. We are in no hurry and don’t believe in pressuring potential franchise owners. The quality of those who join our family is far more important to us than the number of new schools we open.

Do I need to find an existing indoor pool?Read More

Will you help me during construction?Read More

What kind of support will I receive?Read More
Several months prior to the opening of your swim school, you will spend one week attending Aqua-Tots University in Mesa, Arizona, learning how to operate a successful school. As your opening date approaches, you will spend an additional week at our Mesa location learning about the daily operation of the school.
Does the owner need to be involved in daily management?Read More
During the first year in your first school, yes, it is critical to your success that you become an “operational expert.” After this initial period, a skilled general manager is sufficient so you can concentrate on opening additional schools.
