A Jabberjacks Franchisee Journey


As Karen prepares to support the local charity event Colour Blast Dash at Darley Park, we have been reflecting on how much she has achieved since joining the Jabberjacks team.

Karen Price contacted Jabberjacks back in the Autumn of 2012 after reading an article about franchising opportunities with Jabberjacks in Lots for Tots, Derby.  She came along to our Discovery Day on 28th September 2012 saw our reputable music and activity classes in action and met one of our Franchisees.

Karen, who at the time was a primary school teacher instantly recognised the Early Years learning techniques used in our toddler activity classes and then came along to one of our unique birthday parties and fell in love with Jabberjacks!

Within 2 months Karen accepted our offer of the South Derbyshire territory, paid her deposit and finally put pen to paper on her Franchise Agreement on 16th January 2013.  After completing over 50 hours of training during February and March, Karen delivered her first solo party in March and performed to a live audience at the Bump to Five show, soon after.

Within the first 6 months, Karen increased her party bookings from 2 to 8 per month through word of mouth and attending local baby and toddler events, as well as having the support of Toys r Us where she regularly has a display in the local store.

The following year she increased her party bookings to 10 per month, and started delivering toddler activity classes to the public in Long Eaton and Chellaston as well as securing a regular session with a local nursery.

Karen increased her turnover by 60% in 2014 and is continuing to show significant growth in 2015.  She gets fantastic reviews on Facebook and direct from customers, with comments like “Karen you are our hero” and we are delighted to have her as a member of our team.
