Friendship leads to business partnership!

Lingotot Bexley and Lingotot Gravesend have recently announced their exciting new joint venture, Lingotot Dartford. Jaclyn Townshend, founder of Lingotot Gravesend, and Sarah Canavan, founder of Lingotot Bexley, have both been highly successful in establishing and nurturing their individual Lingotot businesses. 

The ladies met when they joined Lingotot as neighbouring franchisees and their friendship blossomed. When both of their businesses became ripe for expansion, it made sense for the friends to pool their efforts and launch a new business partnership. With the two of them at the helm of Lingotot Dartford, there is no doubt that they will continue to triumph in their language teaching endeavours. 

Angela Sterling, founder and CEO of the Lingotot franchise, said ‘it is absolutely wonderful news. Sarah and Jaclyn are both incredible businesswomen and close friends who are amazing at what they do. Look out Dartford, you’re in for a real treat!’ 

This year has been challenging for everybody in many ways. In amongst this adversity, it is extremely refreshing to hear a business success story. The expansion of Lingotot Bexley and Gravesend into Dartford is a welcomed reminder that businesses are continuing to flourish in the face of an ongoing global pandemic.

Jaclyn had this to say, ‘Sarah and I have worked very closely together for years as our areas of Gravesend and Bexley are located near to one another. When the opportunity arose to purchase Lingotot Dartford, the area that would link our territories, we jumped at the chance. 

There are a large number of primary schools in and around Dartford and a huge regeneration project happening there at the moment, so it seemed like the ideal opportunity for expansion.

Primarily we will be looking to work with schools and nurseries to provide our award winning language classes for children. We are very excited to meet lots of new faces and will be offering some free taster sessions and a competition in the new year.’
