    Leigh Duke - Jo Jingles Franchisee / East Lothain & Borders & Edinburgh

    Leigh Duke - Award Winning Franchisee / East Lothian & Borders and Edinburgh
    “I love the enthusiasm I see on their little faces, it’s great to see a child learning new skills every day and knowing that you are part of that.”
    After having her first child, Leigh decided that her existing career in the world of Banking was not going to be the right choice for family life. She came to Jo Jingles as a customer initially, and enjoyed the classes with her baby so much that she decided to invest in her own franchise.
    ‘I like a challenge and having been to many Jo Jingles classes as a parent, I know how much fun learning through music is’.
    Having never worked with children before she thought the classes might be tough to begin with, but discovered the specially designed programmes and strong support network we have, made it much easier than she thought. She loves seeing the progression of the babies to pre-schoolers and says:
    ‘I love the enthusiasm and seeing the little ones getting so much enjoyment out of it - as well as that they are learning new skills’.
    Having initially purchased her Jo Jingles territory of East Lothian back in 2007 with her initial investment of £6600, her first year turnover was around £26,551. This area has now more than doubled to over £55,000. Leigh has not only maintained stability of her classes but she also expanded her business in 2015 when she purchased 2 additional areas East Edinburgh in October and Central Edinburgh in December. She now manages a team of eight class teachers, across the two additional territories and most recently, has appointed a co-partner to continue the growth and acceleration of her region. She also runs sessions in nurseries and visits baby groups on a regular basis. Leigh is currently on target for an annual turnover in excess of £100k!
    As well winning numerous other awards, she was named ‘Franchisee of the Year’ at the Jo Jingles Annual Conference 2016, for her outstanding management, growth and development of the business over the past nine years.
    All this while being mum to two young, very active daughters of her own and being very much part of the local community, her positive reputation has kept the business model strong and growing still!

    Andreas Alkiviades - Jo Jingles Franchisee / Stamford

    Rock and Roll… and Jingles too!
    Fed up that time spent commuting to his job in a bank meant less time to spend with his daughter, Andreas Alkiviades decided with his recruitment consultant wife that one of them needed to change career to create a better family life.
    So when Andreas became the primary carer he started to look for activities he could do with his daughter and in discovering Jo Jingles what started as an activity soon became a possible new career.
    “Jo Jingles franchising was an obvious choice,’ says Andreas. ‘Because singing comes naturally to me and I love working with children.”
    Andreas’s talent for singing is not some idle boast as in his earlier life as the son of a professional footballer, he had gained a degree in England and then returned home to Cyprus to release a record as a solo artist that went gold. He lived a rock and roll lifestyle, playing gigs, doing TV interviews and all that being an active popstar entails.
    Setting up his initial franchise in July 2008 in the Windsor area his banking background helped him start the business as he was familiar with business plans and was able to raise a bank loan to fund the new venture.
    In his first year he turned over £15,000 as he established the business and marketed the classes and quickly rose to £40,000 in his second year. He says:
    “It’s hard work but I love it as I get to see my children more.”
    Business continued to grow and by the end of his fifth year he was achieving turnover of at least £55,000 eventually selling his business to his then class
    teacher for nearly 3 times the amount he initially bought it to move north with his family.
    In the Spring of 2014 Andreas took on the Jo Jingles franchise in the Grantham and Stamford areas and again is building the business from strength to strength.
    He is aware of his novelty value as currently the only male franchisee and class teacher in the Jo Jingles family and says:
    “Being a man does perhaps give me a slight advantage as most of the customers are women and little boys do like to be taught by a man for a change. It is for this reason that I think that many of the nurseries that I contacted want to work with me!”
    Andreas’s dynamism is a perfect match for the Jo Jingles concept and with his starry background it is perhaps no surprise that he was a winner of the Jo Jingles Newcomer of the Year 2010 award, and in 2011 he won the Outstanding Business Management Award giving him another trophy for his cabinet!
    We are sure there will be more awards added very soon!
