WorkBuzz is an independent organisation that has gathered feedback provided by the franchisees of 200+ brands across the UK over the last decade. The Franchisee Satisfaction Benchmark Survey has been running since 2011, and this year is pleased to award babyballet® a 5-star rating. As debutants in the WorkBuzz survey, babyballet® has demonstrated its position as an industry leader of children’s dance franchising.
Franchisees rate their franchisor on 6 key criteria: their training and support for franchisees, leadership, the franchise system, value and rewards, culture and relationships, and general franchisee satisfaction. With this year’s survey being the first that babyballet has taken part in and to have immediately achieved a 5-star rating, the children’s ballet franchise is excited to say the least.
“We’re incredibly proud to have been awarded a 5-star rating! After a difficult 18 months for businesses in the UK, especially in the arts sector, it’s credit to our wonderful Head Office team that our network of franchisees have praised our ongoing commitment and support for what they do. Maintaining our standards is the absolute minimum we expect of ourselves. We always strive to go above and beyond for our franchisees to make the delivery of our service sparkle for the children taking part,” said Claire O’Connor, the founder of babyballet®.
The results of the survey produce a benchmark for participating franchise brands and high-scoring franchises are put in the running for their highly regarded awards held later in the year.
Sharon Weston, Head of Franchising at WorkBuzz, said, “There are only 10 winners of our 5-star franchisee satisfaction award so far this year with more than 70 surveys launched. babyballet should be proud their achievements.”
babyballet's® WorkBuzz survey delivered franchisee satisfaction ratings including a 98% score for trust in the leadership team, with 98% feeling their ideas were valued and 100% of franchisees saying they were proud to be part of babyballet® - an impressive performance!
As the franchise network continues to expand and with 3,500+ children currently on the waiting list, babyballet® is keen to hear from others who think they could join this super 5-star franchise.

As children across the nation are returning back-to-school, babyballet is well and truly back-to-show business!
It is a whole year since I started my babyballet franchise and it has been the fastest year of my life! I’ve absolutely loved it and can’t wait to see what each year brings. This was easily the best decision I’ve ever made. Thank you so much to the head office team for welcoming me to the family with open arms, and to Claire for being such a fab big boss and inspiration.Miss Suzy babyballet® Franchisee, Worsley and Walkden
The training to join the babyballet franchise family was fantastic. During the initial training course, every aspect of running a business was covered – from office and admin management through to running the dance classes themselves. From day one I felt like part of the babyballet team and nothing was too much trouble – no matter how many questions or queries I had!Miss Jessie babyballet® Franchisee, Dartford, Bexley and Bromley
It’s my 8th year as a babyballet franchisee and I still absolutely love it! The magic of teaching preschoolers their first steps combined with the flexibility of being my own boss, all the while knowing that I have the backing and support of such a fantastic brand, is just the best feeling ever.Miss Leanne babyballet® Franchisee, Livingston and Falkirk
