Introducing Jodi O’Connor from Turtle Tots in East Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire

Jodi O’Connor runs Turtle Tots in East Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire and tells us why she chose to buy a Turtle Tots licence:

Turtle Tots - Jodi O'ConnorI’m Jodi O’Connor and I run Turtle Tots in East Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire with my husband and two young boys.

Before I had Rohan and Jed I worked for MARS UK and enjoyed a very 'corporate' job. However when I was pregnant with Jed I knew I didn’t want to return to office-hours and two children in nursery was going to be expensive!

So I retrained as a swimming teacher and began teaching after I’d had Jed.   I loved my new job but after a couple of years I realised I wanted a career again and my current job had no room for career progression. I started investigating buying franchises and licenses and met with Turtle Tots and also a baby swimming franchise to find out more.

I decided to buy a Turtle Tots license for lots of reasons. Firstly I loved the look and feel of the Turtle Tots brand, which is fresh and distinctive. I felt that buying a license from a young and forward-thinking brand would allow me to grow with the brand and add a lot of value to my business as we both grew.

Buying a license rather than a franchise was considerably cheaper with less ongoing costs. I don’t feel I am paying for a team of staff in head office and fancy offices! I am also able to speak to Gaby and Caroline whenever I need to, there are no layers of bureaucracy.

In the near future I believe there will be other opportunities for me as Turtle Tots grows – I’m interested in quality control, assessing and being a tutor.

In a nutshell I enjoy every minute of what I do, and it enables me to work around my family and make my own decisions. I have no doubt that joining Turtle Tots was the right decision.
