As a response to the lack of organic and ethically sourced products for children mum of one Sam Petter founded Tatty Bumpkin. The business aims to open the door to a child's imagination through yoga-inspired movement and music classes. Sam has also developed a range of ethically crafted clothing and a highly successful franchise operation, which has expanded from its base in Kent to as far as Aberdeen and Exmouth.
The Tatty Bumpkin franchise was launched in March this year. The franchise offers a dual revenue income stream from the company's clothing and movement classes. Tatty Bumpkin states that by year three franchisees can be comfortably earning in excess of £50,000. Additionally, the franchise offers huge time flexibility to fit with franchisee's lifestyle because clothing sales and classes can be run at any time.
The franchise is attracting women from all walks of life looking for a radical career change. These include a top Whitbread brand manger who was running her own pubs at the age of 21, and an ex-figure skater.
