Big Blue Swim School EBIDTA Breakdown

This represents average annual EBITDA across 4 affiliate-owned BIG BLUE Swim. They are substantially similar to the BIG BLUE Swim Schools for which we are offering franchises, and their services and products are the same as those to be offered and sold by franchised BIG BLUE Swim Schools. These affiliate-owned BIG BLUE Swim Schools reflect a wide range of demographics and business conditions found in the urban and suburban markets in which we currently operate. All 4 BIG BLUE Swim Schools are located in the greater Chicago, Illinois metropolitan area, which may have higher population densities, labor costs, and rent expense than other markets across the United States in which you are interested in developing a BIG BLUE Swim School. A new franchisee’s results may differ from the represented performance, There is no assurance that you will do as well and you must accept that risk. These figures appear in Item 19 of our 2021 Franchise Disclosure Document with other historical financial performance information for these 4 schools.
