Running a Mess Around franchise is a family affair
Hello everyone, my name is Kerry-Anne and I am the proud owner of Mess Around Edinburgh. I host messy play events, children’s birthday parties and private booking across the Edinburgh and the Lothians. I launched my business in May 2017 and its been a family affair ever since and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
A little about me:
- I am a very proud mum to two boys, Patrick and Ruaridh who come along to my events
- I have been married to my husband Adam since 2015 – he loves to help with the clean up, dress up as characters and loves a photo opportunity!
- I live in Linlithgow
- I have a degree in Arts & Cultural management, but always dreamed of running my own business
My Mess Around Journey
I started the Mess Around Journey when I attended my first session with Patrick in 2017. I loved the sessions, the child led approach and the chance to have quality time with my little one. When the franchise became available at the beginning of 2017 I knew I wanted to be part of this amazing company so despite being very pregnant I decided to take the plunge and was signing the dotted line within weeks!
Ruaridh was born, 6 weeks later I completed my training and 4 weeks after that I delivered my launch event. I absolutely love what I do, delivering fun events for families whilst getting to spend time with my own.
There really is something for everyone at our Mess Around parties – from painting to water play, gloop, coloured spaghetti and even baked beans! Our sessions are friendly, relaxed and informal with a fun party atmosphere. They are a great way to meet other parents, friends and of course enjoying some quality time as a family.
When you join the team you become part of the Mess Around family. With a fantastic franchise package we provide you with equipment worth over £2000, full training and mentoring, marketing support and we even co host your first launch event to ensure you get off to a flying start. To top it off you will be part of an amazing team who are passionate about Mess Around and share our ambition to be the largest messy play provider in the UK.
