Jo Jingles has grown steadily throughout the last 18 years and there are now franchisees in most major cities and towns throughout the UK. We also have 9 franchises in Northern Ireland, 4 in Ireland and 2 in Western Australia.
Jo Jingles is now firmly established as the UK’s largest provider of pre-school music and singing classes and our aim is for further expansion in the UK and overseas.
A Jo Jingles franchise costs from £5,500 - £9,000 + VAT, depending on the size of the territory.
The franchise package includes all the usual benefits, from an exclusive territory and initial/on-going training to an operations manual, class programmes and equipment such as percussion instruments, music books and CD's recorded exclusively for Jo Jingles by well-known presenters, (including the BAFTA Award winning Brian Cant) from BBC's children's programmes. A local website is also included.
All new Jo Jingles franchisees receive at least one week's comprehensive training before starting Jo Jingles classes.
We encourage visits to other franchisees, provide additional in-class training and on-going promotional support with the business with marketing and online activities - Head Office also sends out regular updates on regional and national promotional and advertising activities and manages an on-going and active national PRcampaign to support the brand.
Our training course covers:
- Everything you need to know about Jo Jingles
- Managing your own business
- Advertising & pr
- Class programmes
Detailed training manuals along with access to online practical training are supplied to each franchisee. The initial training is followed up with further regular training meetings, appointment of a local mentor and on-going support and business ideas for franchisees.
In addition to regional training/business days we hold an annual company conference at least once per year, usually in the Autumn and this is held near to the Jo Jingles Head Office in Buckinghamshire.
Typically, Jo Jingles franchisees are mothers who have experience of very young children and may have dealt with the pressures of “juggling” a career and home.
Applicants do not need to have had any musical training, but ideally should have a good singing voice, a musical background, and a genuine interest in music. They should be bright, energetic, have endless patience, be well organised and have good presentation skills.
Above all they need to relate to small children and take pride in being involved in the entertainment and education of pre-school children. A business/sales and marketing background is useful.
Our current franchisees include an ex-paediatric nurse, a former nursery supervisor, a former OFSTED Inspector for nurseries and playgroups, two semi-professional singers, two dance teachers (already running their own dance schools), a former City solicitor, an MBA qualified ex-IT Consultant, ex-college lecturer, a music agent and a number of ex-school teachers. The Jo Jingles franchise appeals to a wide variety of people!
