Nikki Rawsthorne – South Manchester Franchisee


Former teacher Nikki, who lives in Stretford with her teenage son, took on her South Manchester Jabberjacks franchise territory as a re-sale in 2014, having first known about Jabberjacks many years before when she attended classes with her son.

Since those days she has always had a keen interest in Jabberjacks as a business opportunity but was committed to her teaching career. She has worked in a south Manchester primary school for a number of years as a teacher and also as a teaching Deputy Head.

When the re-sale opportunity became available in South Manchester, she decided to look again at Jabberjacks and decided the time was right to make that next step into something she had always wanted to do.

She started delivering our fun-filled, traditional parties only days after signing her franchise agreement and was very soon advertising for a Party Leader to meet the growing demand as her parties gained in popularity.

As Jabberjacks is a low cost franchise it does allow your business to grow with you and with the income from her parties, Nikki soon relaunched our toddlers activity classes in the area, benefitting from the support of neighbouring franchisees who gave her the opportunity to join in with their classes to get some hands-on experience.

Nikki loves the fact that Jabberjacks parties are busy and interactive, with lots of dancing and non-stop games to keep both her and the children entertained. As a teacher trained in the development of children in their early years, she fully supports the use of puppetry to develop children’s social, communication and gross motor skills.
