Puddle Ducks reaches its highest ever position in the Elite Franchise Top 100!


The HSBC UK Elite Franchise Top 100 recognises the top 100 franchises across the country each year. Franchisors are ranked based on the quality of their support, the success and size of their network, the impact they have on their local communities, alongside other factors.

Coming in at number 18, Puddle Ducks are heading in the right direction when it comes to the Top 100, but also as a franchise business, having recently celebrated 15 franchise owner renewals of 5, 10 and 15 years with four reaching their 15-year renewal, highlighting the trust in the brand and the incredible opportunities it provides.

Puddle Ducks’ franchisees reap significant financial rewards as well as huge personal satisfaction knowing they are providing a life-long skill to so many children in their local area and it’s because of the loyalty in the brand that Puddle Ducks continue to achieve their goals year on year.

Puddle Ducks currently has 33 franchisees owning over 50 territories across the UK teaching more than 25,000 children every week. With a vision for every franchise territory to have a managed or owned pool by 2027, and with a track record of being awarded Workbuzz 5* franchisee satisfaction based on confidential feedback from their franchise owners for 11 consecutive years, Puddle Ducks don’t tread water when it comes to being a successful franchise business.

Jo Stone, Co-Founder of Puddle Ducks commented: “To reach number 18 in the Elite Franchise Top 100 is an incredible achievement and testament to our franchise network. We pride ourselves on the investment we make in our franchise owners right from the start, from head office support to the tools they need to operate a successful business. Puddle Ducks is a hugely supportive and rewarding franchise business with an exceptional business model, so there’s certainly exciting times ahead!”.
