The inside track on Razzamataz Theatre Schools’ award winning franchise opportunity
The children’s franchise sector is set to continue to grow in 2020, fuelled by parents who want to invest in the enrichment of their children. With many schools cutting lessons related to the arts, more families are turning to establishments like Razzamataz Theatre Schools to fill the gap.
With 20 years’ experience in children’s theatre schools, Razzamataz is an established brand. Franchisees come from a range of backgrounds: some have years of performing arts experience behind them, while others are passionate, but have little industry experience. With the training, support and practical guidance Razzamataz offers, the business is open to people from all walks of life.
Low cost entry
You can become part of this award winning theatre school network with a total investment of around £15,000. This includes the franchise fee, full training, support, marketing and working capital. Potential earnings are £250,000, with a 70 per cent gross profit. The running costs of a Razzamataz franchise are low, making the investment relatively low risk.
What training will I get?
After an intensive six-day training course at Razzamataz head office in the Lake District, you will be assigned a support manager and your journey will begin.
Razzamataz is passionate about continuous professional development and provides high levels of support, including refresher training, phase 2 training, performance and events training, regular webinars, regional meetings and conferences, plus Growth Hubs to assist you every step of the way.
Will I have a flexible lifestyle?
Absolutely. You’ll never miss a school nativity or sports day again. Children sick? No problem, you can work from home. Half-term child care will never be an issue again.
Claire Blower, a mum of two and principal of Razzamataz Mansfield and Nottingham, says: “The best aspect of being my own boss is the flexibility. Although having structure is important, the majority of the work can be done at any time. If things don’t go according to plan, I can always be there for the children.”
Can I work with a sibling, partner or friend?
Yes. Some of Razzamataz’s most successful franchisees are mother-daughter partnerships. Take Alison Beveridge, principal of Razzamataz Durham, who combines running her school with working as an actress and charity work and works with her mum, Lynda.
“Being a Razzamataz principal fits in brilliantly with my lifestyle,” Alison says. “I’m not stuck to 9-5 hours and most of the time I can work when and where I like.”
Do I have to teach dance, drama and singing?
No. In fact, Razzamataz asks you not to do this. Your job is managing your team of qualified teachers.
What if I need funding?
Razzamataz can help you. The company has great relationships with many high street banks, which will help you fund your business. You will be operating and growing in a stable market and part of a recognisable, national and multi award winning brand.
