A multi award winning, flexible and rewarding business opportunity where you’re in control of your timetable as you inspire and empower little ones with our original storytelling and dramatic play classes.
We are the UK’s premier drama-in-education company working with children aged 6 months – 7 years, running original Interactive Storytelling and Dramatic Play classes expertly created to support National Curricula.
Our franchisees benefit from a proven business model that has been operating for more than 13 years.
With access to the premium end of the market and their own exclusive territory, current ambitious franchisees charge in excess of £175 per hour and deliver up to 45 classes, workshops and parties per week to a diverse customer base. This offers flexibility as to how you want to run your business and from where you generate your income. We carefully respond to demands in the marketplace and produce more revenue streams for our franchisees to benefit from; most recently this includes Joining Generations with Imagination, our intergenerational sessions. Best of all, you can start your business part-time whilst working around existing commitments.
“I was attracted to Debutots because of the exceptional quality of the product, business tools and thorough training; all this and the ongoing mentor support made my investment thoroughly worth it. Even my accountant said the value for money is excellent.
I put the foundations for my business firmly in place – within 6 months I was working with 15 nurseries and schools.” Emma Booth, Hull. Debutots Franchisee for 3 years.
Comprehensive training and our friendly network ensures you can boldly take that step and fearlessly leap into self-employment. You’ll develop your current skills, learn valuable new ones, and have continued support and training, not only from Head Office, but also from our other franchisees who love to share their experiences.
Who are we looking for?
We offer the best in house training meaning we recruit people from different sectors. Franchisee’s previous careers include: retail area manager, sales manager, legal secretary, nursery practitioner, marketing director, teacher, teaching assistant and stay at home mum.
The confidence to embrace drama and storytelling is essential and you need to have a willingness and confidence to build a network of customers using the database we provide and your own existing contacts.
We’re looking for people who have a genuine desire to build their own successful business within the Debutots franchise model. Our franchisees truly believe in our wonderful and original product and want to share their passion for what we do with their local community.
There is only 1 Debutots Franchisee per exclusive territory. The investment fee which includes all training, equipment, your database and a £1000 marketing kickstarter, is currently only £7920 ex VAT. Apply to discover whether it could be you!
“My family are proud of the business I have built and I love that I’m setting an example for my kids – it really is possible to enjoy your job! I never thought I’d be one of the lucky people to be able to say that, but I am!” Jennifer, London. Debutots Franchisee for 12 years
How are we dealing with the Covid-19 crisis?
Despite COVID-19, our franchisees are still operating. Having pre-empted school and childcare closure we started working on a strategy, in advance, to give our franchisees the best possible opportunity to retain their customer base and build additional online customers. In the space of 10 days we managed to move our classes online to ensure our franchisees could deliver their much valued classes on Monday 20th March, following the closure of schools and childcare settings on Friday 18th March.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has been a challenging time for everyone, but never have I been so grateful to be a Debutots franchisee. I might own my own business, but I have never been alone. The support and guidance from Head Office and the other franchisees has been without limits. Before day 1 of lockdown Head Office had planned a strategy for us to keep our businesses going. As franchisees, we haven’t had to trawl through the reams of guidance documents – it has been done for us meaning we’ve been able to spend our time maintaining customer relationships and providing them with an award winning choice of online offerings. Thank you Debutots – not even lockdown can stop us!” Gillian Wilkins, Debutots Franchisee for Southampton.
How are we moving forward?
- We have added product lines to our business and continue to develop and innovate with each new set of government guidelines.
- Doorstep Debutots and our Wild and Wonderful Camps have had an incredible uptake with some franchisees adding additional camps to fulfil demand. – A return to indoor parent and child classes and new outdoor parent and child classes have now launched.
- We are working closely with a government education advisor on our messaging for schools. Franchisees are operating back in nurseries already and have been ever since they reopened and After Schools Clubs are also now re-starting.
- We are able to offer a hybrid of online and face to face and can switch whenever necessary to ensure we continue to deliver our services.
