Each Puddle Ducks franchise is an investment that allows you to do something you love and turn it into a profitable business.

Whilst no previous experience is necessary, all of our franchisees start off teaching in the water, so they can fully immerse themselves in the product and truly understand their customers. But ultimately, the aim is for you to manage a team of teachers, taking ownership of your own territory and building the business upwards from there.

Ultimately, it’s up to you how quickly you go. Some franchisees like to start by cautiously dipping their toes in whilst others like to dive right in at the deep end — either way, our team will be there to support you every step of the way.

If you'd like to find out whether franchising is for you, ask yourself ten important questions before making a decision.

Taking the stress out of running a business…

You can’t teach someone to swim by throwing them in the deep end and seeing if they float, which is why we offer extensive training and support for anyone willing to start their own Puddle Ducks franchise. Puddle Ducks’ franchisees receive everything they need to ensure their business is a success, with help from Head Office whenever they need it.

We can guarantee:

  • Large territories across the UK
  • Flexible working hours
  • Comprehensive business and teaching manuals
  • In-depth training in all areas
  • Full ongoing support with a dedicated Franchise Manager

...with practical and emotional support

As well as relying on a solid programme that will bring customers to you, you can also rely on us to help you turn any negatives into positives. We know how hard it is to run a business alongside a family - we’ve been there! Let us show you how to enjoy all the benefits of a rewarding career that makes working a pleasure and provides significant earning potential.

From being nervous about running your own feeling confident and enjoying success

From being tired of not earning your own doing a rewarding job that contributes to the community

From being fed up with the same old routine and no knowing every day will be different and interesting

...that’s the Puddle Ducks difference.

What Our Franchisees Think

Cate Woodrow-Smith, Owner of Puddle Ducks Derbyshire

“I wanted to spend quality time with my family and didn’t want to miss out on enjoying the delights of my growing daughter…I worked harder and longer hours in the early stages than working for a corporate, but now beginning to really reap the benefits.”
