Alan & Megan jump from 200 to 400 students in a year
Alan & Megan Bright first opened their swim school in August of 2016. They run their swim school in Canning Vale, WA.
They have almost doubled their student numbers since opening! The Brights are now teaching over 400 students a week.
Who are Alan & Megan?
Alan and Megan are parents to three teenage children: Taylor-Anne (17), Madeleine (15), Jackson (13).
Alan and Megan both have extensive backgrounds in the mining industry. Alan has over 20 years experience as an Engineer, and Megan previously worked as an Environment Manager. Megan also has years of experience as a swim instructor.
The Bright family is heavily involved with the Calisthenics and Hockey sporting communities in WA – the kids participate and both Alan and Megan coach.
The Brights also enjoy outdoor activities such as camping and skiing, as well as renovating.
Why did they decide to purchase a franchise with JUMP!?
“We wanted the opportunity to have an independent business while being backed up with a management system – in business for yourself but not by yourself.
“Megan had returned to teaching and felt there was a need for smaller, family-friendly centres.
“The area is local to our home and has a young family demographic with continued housing expansion within the surrounding areas. There were limited choices of swim centres for parents in the area.”
How do they balance running a business and family life?
“We build everything into the family schedule and train reliable management staff to ensure flexibility.”
What’s their favourite part about owning a JUMP!?
“Building relationships with the parents and children and seeing them improve, and the excitement when they achieve a new skill.”
