It’s tough being a working parent today. Whether you work in a corporate environment or have followed another career path, chances are you’ve struggled with parent guilt at some point. Maybe it’s even led you to consider changing careers or pursue a new business opportunity.
In honor of Working Parents Day on September 16, we would like to celebrate the Franchise Owners of our nearly 400 Primrose schools who have found a career that offers them greater balance both personally and professionally. By becoming a Primrose Franchise Owner and opening a school in their community, they have also invested in giving other parents the chance to advance their careers while their children are well cared for and learning at Primrose.
This year, we’re celebrating working parents across the country through a national PR campaign aimed at reassuring parents that they’re doing a great job. The campaign, which includes multiple emotional videos, aims to help parents feel proud and empowered to lead successful careers and raise kind, caring children – something we also help parents with every day in our schools!
There are ways to overcome parent guilt, and sometimes, a career change can be part of the solution. Many of our Franchise Owners discovered Primrose while looking for a better way to balance a successful career with the responsibilities of raising a family. Now, they are able to provide other working parents with the peace of mind they need to pursue their own careers! Primrose parents know their children are loved and learning in a safe, nurturing environment during the workday, and that’s one of many reasons why it’s so rewarding to own a Primrose school.
If you’re looking to make a career move that gives you more flexibility and time for family, here are a few reasons why owning a franchise – and specifically a Primrose school – may be a good fit:
- More flexibility for family time. One of the perks of owning your own business is the additional flexibility. You can structure your schedule to accommodate the needs of your family and your business. Many Primrose Franchise Owners are also parents who have the joy of watching their own children attend their Primrose school. These Franchise Owners cherish being able to witness their children’s early learning experiences firsthand – and they love the fact that they will never miss an important milestone!
- Professional support every step of the way. Primrose Franchise Owners get the benefits of owning their own businesses, but with significant support from our National Leadership Support Team along the way. We help with everything from the site selection and construction process to curriculum, training, marketing and more. Our guidance throughout every phase of your franchising journey gives you peace of mind and more time to spend with your family.
- Personal and financial fulfillment. Investing in high-quality early education and care is rewarding in so many ways – from supporting working parents to nurturing the next generation. We also work intentionally with our Franchise Owners to help them grow a business that yields financial rewards. In fact, Primrose has one of the lowest SBA loan default ratios in the franchising industry, another element that attests to the strength of our business model.
Many of our Franchise Owners take advantage of these three benefits to balance their careers and family responsibilities. By becoming a Franchise Owner, these parents control their own schedules and provide much needed peace of mind to hundreds of working parents in their communities. Owning your own franchise can bring the ideal work-life balance to your life and help you get closer to reaching your career goals.
