Meet The New Razzamataz Franchisees

Although it has almost been 20 years since it began and almost 13 since the owner stepped into BBC’s Dragons’ Den, the new recruits joining the theatre school franchise still remember the famous episode.

The Razzamataz Head Office has been buzzing with franchise training and welcomed new recruits as well as renewals from those that had been in the network for five and ten years.

Buying a franchise continues to be a good investment with the British Franchise Association reporting that 90% of franchisees have been profitable every year for the past 20 years.

During the week-long training session, the new franchisees at Razzamataz Theatre Schools were introduced to a range of experts to help with every element of running a performing arts school.

As part of Razzamataz’s commitment to continue to support franchisees, every Principal is invited back to attend the training, completely free of charge. Georgia Davies, Principal of Razzamataz Bristol North explains:
"I am just about to complete my first year as a Principal and have just attended franchisee training again. I am glad I did, there is such a lot of information to retain and it is great as a refresher. I've picked up lots of valuable information to help grow the business."

Even the most experience Principals find value in returning to training as Deborah Laws, Principal at Razzamataz Plymouth for ten years says:
"Loved working with my business besties on planning for growth. Thank you to everyone at Head Office for these awesome opportunities."

She completed her professional training at Mountview Academy of Performing Arts in London achieving a BA (hons) in Musical Theatre. She then went on to perform in various musicals and has been lucky enough to perform twice at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall. A change in career saw Caroline retrain as a nurse and health visitor, meaning that Caroline has a great understanding of child development and how dance, drama and singing can help children gain confidence and reduce stress levels. Caroline believes that the arts can have a huge positive impact on children’s physical and mental wellbeing. She wants children to come and make new friends, learn new skills and above all have lots of fun. Caroline is also a mum of three.
