About Us

This Franchise Marketing award finalist, low cost franchise provides activity classes for pre-school children and party entertainment to kids up to and including 7 years, with minimal costs to operate and equipment that can last you for years so that you can earn high profit margins of at least 85%.

With over 10 years’ experience in Franchising and 9 Franchisees currently operating, Jabberjacks gives you everything you need to run a highly profitable business.

Since Jackie and Verity joined the management team and eventually took over the business in 2010 Jabberjacks has gone from strength to strength, with 3 newly recruited Franchisees who are already earning an income from their business. The Directors have invested time and money in their branding and internet presence which has resulted in Jabberjacks being selected as one of only 8 finalists in the Franchise Marketing Awards 2012 (FMA).

One of the significant benefits of becoming a Jabberjacks Franchisee is that you are attracting customers from two market sectors by delivering educational activity in accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage (E.Y.F.S.) and party entertainment for birthdays, special occasions and corporate events.

There are also lots of other benefits too such as buying into an established brand with a proven track record, having a team of experts readily available to help get your business up and running within weeks and who continue to offer help and support along the way, not forgetting a network of successful Franchisees to offer friendly advice.

The best way to find out more is to come along to one of our discovery days where you will meet the team and experience a Jabberjacks party or class for yourself. Contact Jackie and Verity on 01509 413873 to book your place or visit our website.

About You

As the demand for different children’s activities continues to grow, with parents and carers not having the space or time, you as a Jabberjacks Franchisee have the flexibility to offer:

  • Educational Activity Classes to pre-school children in private nurseries and public venues using a variety of puppets and props against a backdrop of music and rhyme to support children’s learning and development in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage (E.Y.F.S.).
  • Party Entertainment which appeals to children up to and including 7 years old using even more colourful props along with lots of traditional games and activities tailored to the age of the children.

The video which you can view on the Working Mum’s website gives you an insight into a Jabberjacks party where you can see how much fun you can have whilst working.

The great news is with this kids franchise you don’t need experience working with children as all your activities and lesson plans are included within the training and manuals written exclusively for Jabberjacks. You do need to be self-motivated and have lots of energy as well as being organised and a good communicator with adults and children. It’s important that you can see yourself working with children and that you enjoy having fun and being part of our team of Franchisees.

To find out more about the team visit where you will discover all 9 Franchisees have come from very different backgrounds and yet they are all now running a business for Mum’s.

So, whether you are looking to work full-time or fit your career around family, this flexible business allows you to balance your working patterns around your other commitments and grow at a pace that suits you.

Training & Support

The great thing about becoming a Jabberjacks Franchisee is that you get to concentrate on building your business, with our help. You don’t need to think about the practical things such as the concept, branding, website and email which you would normally have to do when starting up a business for the first time.

What makes Jabberjacks special is the flexible support Jackie and Verity will provide so that the training you receive is personalised to you and can fit around the family for those working mums. It is very much hands on during that first 6 months with regular contact face to face and continues with one to one reviews, regional and national events and regular updates on new initiatives, best practices and any national developments.

Our commitment to you is that you have the opportunity to receive full training and support so that you can work for yourself but not by yourself:

  • Operating your business including delivering your parties and pre-school classes and maximising your sales to earn more.
  • Marketing your business at launch and providing on-going support with advertising and press releases as your business grows.
  • Running your business on a day to day basis and setting up your accounting package with on-going support.

Financial Information

For only £4,995 you can get a Jabberjacks licence for an exclusive territory which includes all the training and support you need to run a successful business. The equipment, which lasts for years, can be bought gradually as your business expands and you want to offer a greater variety to your customers.

Here is a taster of what is included:

  • Full training and support to get you started and expand your business.
  • Manuals covering operational and business management.
  • A dedicated web page and email address.
  • Marketing material and personalised stationery.
  • Personalised artwork following the Jabberjacks branding guidelines.
  • An accounting package to include installation and on-going support.

What makes Jabberjacks unique is that there are very little overhead costs as the business can operate from home and other than your management fee and venue hire, where applicable, the rest of the income is yours. What’s more, the management fee is only payable on income earned so there are no minimum fees to pay as you establish your business.

We can show how a typical business operating 12 parties and 14 classes per month can earn annual income of £35,000 and with an 85% gross profit margin this means you come away with £30,000.



I have been a Jabberjacks Franchisee since 2004 where I started out as a Graduate in Counselling and I am now married with a little boy. Jabberjacks has helped me to develop as a person and running the sessions has made me more outgoing.

The flexibility I have, coupled with the satisfaction of seeing the children’s faces and the financial rewards is much better than my previous job. In 2011 I won the award for Best Achiever across all the Franchisees, despite being on maternity leave during this year, which I couldn’t have done if I had not been part of this Franchise for Mums.

Gaynor Black, Jabberjacks Franchisee

I have just completed my first year with Jabberjacks and I made the move after my children came along and I needed a flexible working pattern to fit alongside my family. When I discovered Jabberjacks I was amazed to see the benefits of joining a franchise with an established business which gave me an immediate income due to the low costs and high profits.

After watching a Jabberjacks birthday party on my discovery day I just knew I had to take up this opportunity to be able to offer parents in my area access to a thoroughly unique and quite amazing party and class service. Not only does Jabberjacks provide me with a fun and exhilarating business but it also allows me to spend more valuable time with my family.
