According to latest statistics at Rhythm Time, a leading provider of educational music classes for children under five, franchising is proving to be a popular route to people wanting to own their own business. Latest figures show that enquiries to own a Rhythm Time music franchise have increased by 30% between January - June 2013 compared to the same period in 2012.
This is in line with the British Franchise Association's latest report in 2012 where they state that "in spite of continuing economic pressures on the economy as a whole, franchising in the UK continues to expand. In an industry worth£13.4billion, they also note that 81% of franchisees in the UK believe that, as a franchised business, they have a competitive advantage over other small (non-franchised) businesses.
This is certainly true at Rhythm Time. Owner and founder, Kathy Doolan believes that, "franchising is attractive for many reasons - the main one being security. It's also more affordable than people think. A Rhythm Time music franchise is fun, flexible and fits around your family commitments - that's why many of our franchisees come to us rather than another organisation. It's enabled them to have a complete (and rewarding) change of career whilst being able to look after their young families."
Established in 1995, Rhythm Time offered its first music franchise in 2000 and it now has 35 across the whole of the UK. Their music classes have been specifically created to enhance the development of babies and young children. From multi-sensory baby classes to exciting toddler classes and educational pre-school sessions, Rhythm Time children enjoy a valuable introduction to music and all classes are in line with the Early Learning Goals and Key Stage One.
Rhythm Time always looks forward to welcoming new children and parents/carers, and a free trial is available to them. The company also continues to offer attractive music franchise opportunities across the UK. For further details, call 0121 711 4224 or visit www.rhythmtime.net/pr.
