Big Blue Swim School has announced the signing of multiple franchise agreements to open Big Blue Swim School units in Seattle, WA, San Diego, CA, Baltimore, MD and Charleston, SC.
13 of the 17 units will be opened by Blue Marlin Ventures LLC, with eight in the San Diego area and the remaining five in and around Seattle; which mark’s the brand’s debut in the state. Badr Kayali, an existing franchisee, has extended his franchise ownership with a new location in Charleston in addition to his previous five units in Philadelphia. Operating under BFK Holding LLC, Kayali now has six locations to his name.
“As we head into the summer, we’re reminded of just how important learning to swim is for children,” says Scott Sanders, CEO of Big Blue Swim School.
“With the addition of these 17 schools, we can continue to empower kids with the skills they need to feel confident in the water. We’re excited to partner and grow with Blue Marlin Ventures, Seven Hills Capital and Badr Kayali to reach more children across the U.S. and offer this life-saving skill.”
The swim brand teaches children aged between three months to 12 years how to be safe and have fun in water. The brand offers a proper curriculum, professional instructors and proprietary technology.
