Hear from our current franchisees about how they've found the process of setting up and running their own Cygnets School. All feedback was given anonymously.
"The Cygnets recruitment process is great: really helpful and I felt supported through the whole process. Positive, straightforward, informative and speedy. Tabby was really friendly and thorough in her answers to all my initial questions, allowing me to make a clear and informed decision."
"The training week was really thorough and enjoyable. It answered all my questions and was really informative, covering everything needed in great depth to set up the franchise. Even down to draft emails to send, where to target advertising etc. Tabby clearly explained all aspects of the business and I felt very confident that I had all I needed to successfully go forward with the business following the end of training.
"I felt incredibly supported by Tabby throughout in the whole process establishing my franchise: from setting up the website and recruiting experienced teachers and assistants, to advice on promotion in my area. If I had a question it was swiftly answered. Since setting up my school I have also found there is a wonderful community amongst my fellow Cygnets franchisees and teachers. I think that the community is invaluable to someone considering opening their own art school. I would also like to thank Tabby and Cygnets Art school for the swift response to the terrible potential business impact of Covid 19. Without their timely and well comunicated response providing a wonderful and hugely positively received online option to classes, both myself and the other schools could have faced a far more challenging time. The response and support we received through this period from Tabby and Cygnets, has allowed us to maintain all our term time student bookings and also grow our student numbers, something I count myself extremely lucky for, in what are exceptionally challenging times for small business!"
"I love running my franchise - doing the teaching and the admin is quite a lot of work, but has been easy enough to cope with as the classes started off small, giving me time to adapt. The teaching and contact with parents, and promoting my business, are all really rewarding aspects of the job, and seeing the students work and their enthusiasm is really great! I received a lot of interest ahead of opening just through word of mouth thanks to the wonderful reputation of the Cygnets Art School brand in our area. I was really pleased with the numbers of students we had sign up to our first classes. Running the business can be challenging from time to time but definitely fulfilling, especially when positive feedback is received from the parents."
"Tabby is inspirational: extremely efficient, professional and easy to deal with, possessing a huge wealth of valuable experience to share with a new franchisee. She is always available and quick to respond with suggestions and advice as well as solutions for any challenges that have arisen."
"This is such a good way of starting a franchise: It's well guided with lots of support. So much is already set up for you and this really is invaluable. You don't feel like you're on your own, which you can do with starting your own business. All the help and ingenuity shown through the current climate really shows the adaptability and strength behind the company.
It's been a really fulfilling and worthwhile experience, better than I had expected and the perfect business for me as a way of being able to do something I enjoy whilst being able to rely on a good income."
