    What do our franchisees say?


    Jemma runs West Wirral classes and has done for 5 years

    Owning a Popcat’s franchise is the best of both worlds in business - I run a small manageable but very profitable business, with no employees, and the support of a brilliant franchise manager and a fabulous team. The business structure is already in place, so I just get to do the fun stuff and run my classes each day!


    Claire runs classes in Neston Cheshire

    I first discovered Popcat’s as a Mum and loved the classes. The Pay as you Go aspect suited me as it was so flexible and the classes were such fun and value for money. I loved watching my little boy grow and get different pleasures at each age- from the bubbles and lights, to cuddling the animals, to counting time ten and finally singing and dancing to all of the songs. As a Primary School teacher, I recognised how valuable the structure and repetition was for him and how many aspects of learning were covered within the class. Feeling jaded about teaching, I decided to make the leap and buy my own franchise of Popcat’s. I love having my own business whilst benefiting from the support and hand holding of Catherine and the other class leaders. We are a strong team. A pandemic might not have been the best time to start my own business but I have no regrets. I love running classes and bringing joy to lots of little ones and every day makes me smile. I get to pick my son up from school every day and don’t have that Sunday night feeling anymore! I’m definitely happier in myself and who wouldn’t be getting to do the Hokey Cokey everyday! Thank you for having me Catherine.


    Eve runs classes in Chester CH3

    Since becoming part of the Popcat's team my life has changed for the better 100%. As a mum of 3 children I found the hours and demands of teaching a real strain on my mental health. I found it difficult to pay for wrap around care when I was the one who wanted to take them to school and pick them up and be available for trips and sports days and now I can.

    Being a franchisee I work 3-4 hours a day in between school hours. Hours to suit me and my family, school holidays off so I have hassle free childcare and hassle free time with them in the holidays without having to think about going into school.

    Buying a franchise is the best thing I’ve ever done.


    Hollie runs classes in Northwich and started during the pandemic

    Hi my name is Hollie, I was an early years teacher for 13 years. I am a mum to three amazing children, Lilia, George and Matilda, the best job in the world! When I was teaching I felt I was helping everyone else’s children and letting mine down, because I never had enough time in the day, then I made a big decision to leave teaching

    I joined Popcat’s in January 2021, just as lockdown struck! The beginning of my adventure started on zoom and I absolutely loved every minute of it. Then restrictions lifted and I didn’t realise how much more I could love my job. Popcat’s has changed not only my life, but my whole family. I have never been happier and I have never looked back.


    Sophie has just re signed her agreement

    Who wouldn’t want to have their afternoons free to be spent doing what they want! Joining Popcat’s has given me a wonderful work/life balance which means that I’m home by 1.30pm most afternoons! Running your own business comes with hard work and determination to succeed but if you are prepared to put the work in it will pay off. When I decided to take a side step from secondary teaching I knew I still wanted to work with children, Popcat’s has allowed me to form wonderful relationships with families who attend classes and has allowed me to use my skills as a teacher to deliver engaging, educational and fun sessions for children. I’m very proud of the business I have built up and feel very honoured that parents/carers choose to return to my classes time after time.


    Laurie runs classes in Bebington and Bromborough

    I have been a Popcat’s class leader now for just over 2 years and 18 months of that was during Covid-19 but I can honestly say I would sign up again in a heartbeat beat! The support I receive from Catherine and the team is amazing, I never feel alone.

    Popcat's changed my life and gave me and my family our happiness back again! The only thing I regret is not signing sooner than I did.



    Laura runs classes in Runcorn

    I can't believe this much fun is my job now! Sat in the car after my taster class and I am stunned at how much I loved it.
