ATLANTA (June 15, 2016) – Primrose Schools, a leading early education and care franchise, has identified New York and New Jersey as key growth markets with demand for high-quality early education services. To meet this need, the franchising company is seeking entrepreneurs with a passion for educating the next generation of leaders at the International Franchise Expo (IFE), taking place June 16 – 18 at the Javits Center in New York City. Entrepreneurs can learn about Primrose franchise opportunities at booth 923 and attend “The Franchisor-Franchisee Relationship: Striking the Perfect Balance” session on Friday, June 17, in which VP of Franchising Chris Goethe and Primrose Franchise Owner Curt Van Emon will participate in the panel.
For five years, Primrose Schools has exhibited at IFE, which attracts thousands of entrepreneurs and business owners each year. “Our research and local community insights continue to identify New York and New Jersey as a market in need of high-quality early education and care,” said Chris Goethe, VP of Franchising for Primrose Schools. “At IFE, we want to meet entrepreneurs who don’t necessarily have a background in education but have a heart for serving children and families and will embrace all of the opportunities this market has to offer.”
Curt Van Emon, IFE panelist and Franchise Owner of the metro-Boston based Primrose School of Burlington, recognized the need for quality early education in the Northeast. In fact, he and his wife opened the first Primrose school in Massachusetts. “While Primrose was new to the region when we became Franchise Owners, we knew the company had a highly-respected reputation in the early education and care industry throughout the country,” said Van Emon. “The Primrose Franchise Team made the decision easy for us and helped us throughout the entire process with extensive training and support so we had everything we needed to thrive in our new business.”
Since opening in May 2014, Primrose School of Burlington has been extremely well-received by parents and the local community. Within the second year of operation, the school reached full capacity, and the Van Emons now plan to open a second school in the area. “With the demand for high-quality early education and care that we’re seeing for the New York and New Jersery region, I encourage Expo attendees to speak with the Primrose Franchise Team about starting their own entrepreneurial journey in a new market. Our community has embraced Primrose and appreciates the enrichment we provide to their families. I believe families in the New York and New Jersery metro areas will also recognize and fall in love with the quality education that Primrose provides children across the country.”
The child care franchising industry continues to expand as more and more Americans recognize the importance of a strong educational foundation for young children. According to the 2015 Franchise Grade Report, children’s services franchises are considered one of the fastest growing franchise sectors in the country.
