In the ten years since Razzamataz Theatre Schools successfully appeared on BBCs Dragons’ Den, the world of franchising has evolved to appeal to a wider range of people.
To celebrate the continued success of the franchise business and remaining in the top five most memorable entrepreneurs on the BBC show, Razzamataz is offering a New Year’s financial incentive to join the theatre school network.
For the first three months of 2017 only, Razzamataz will be offering an enticing package that will give more people the opportunity of owning their own part-time theatre school. After a successful interview, candidates will be able to become Razzamataz franchisees with a new financial package, equating to a saving of around £6,000. Razzamataz will pay the VAT and the first term management fee.
Furthermore, unlike many other theatre school franchises, Razzamataz will allow franchisees to retain 90% of their turnover, proving that as a business, the franchisor and franchisee are committed to working together and are in it for the long haul.
Denise Hutton-Gosney, MD and Founder of Razzamataz, explains:
"In the 11 years since I have been franchising, I have recognised that great school Principals come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring with them various life skills that can help them succeed in business with our support. We have taken people with no business skills but who are willing to learn and invest their time and energy into their school and we are delighted to see them now succeed. We have also witnessed amazing success; one of our longest franchisees now has more than 400 students in her school."
Within the Razzamataz network, there are many parents (and a grandparent) with young children, former teachers, performers who combine working professionally with being a school Principal and young graduates who are straight out of college.
"Experience has shown me that successful Principals come in all ages and it is very much down to us creating long-term successful relationships. We have already secured two very high profile partnerships for 2017; Eurocamp and Disneyland Paris, so this is a great time to be joining us."
The package to celebrate 11 years of successful franchising in 2017 will consist of a franchise fee of £7,995 for January, February and March only. Razzamataz will pay the first month management fee as well as the VAT equating to a saving of almost £6,000. T&Cs apply.
Razzamataz are also delighted to offer their own finance for the franchise fee (after a 30% deposit is payable) for excellent candidates who meet the criteria, including a credit check.

The support from Head Office is fantastic and they are always there to listen and to guide you through. You are getting advertising/marketing ideas, contacts and systems provided for you that you may not have if you were to open an independent school.Amy Latchman, Razzamataz Rickmansworth.
Buying into a franchise is an excellent way to begin running your own business. You have all the benefits of working for yourself but the added support and proven success of a well established and recognised brand. For a person new to business, it is ideal.Helen Green, Razzamataz Sheffield
I specifically wanted to go for a franchise, and in particular Razzamataz because of the support from Head Office and other Principals. This is a network of theatre school owners so you are in business for yourself but not by yourself.Alison Beveridge, Razzamataz Durham.
