It’s been a little over two years since I first joined Primrose Schools as Vice President of Franchising. I knew coming in what a great reputation Primrose has as the leader in early education and care.
Right away, I knew we had to grow in order to keep up with the market demand for high-quality early education and care. Over the past two years, the Franchise Team at Primrose has worked hard to accomplish some amazing milestones – including expanding our schools to the west coast, entering six new states in 2014 and opening our 300th school in the spring of 2015.
Today, I’m excited to share more news as we continue building upon this momentum by taking the franchise business and our reputation to the next level! Recently, both Forbes and Inc. national business magazines recognized Primrose School Franchising Company for our successful business model and growth.
On its annual list of “The Best and Worst Franchises to Buy,” Forbes ranked Primrose Schools #5 among the Best Franchises. We’re so honored to be included on the list of the very best franchise investments nationwide. And, because we know that one in four of our current Franchise Owners choose to invest in Primrose again – opening one or more additional schools – they’re seeing the rewarding return. Just last month, I spoke with two new Franchise Owners in California and Massachusetts who are interested in opening their next schools!
Yesterday, the exciting news continued when we were ranked among Inc.’s annual 5000 list of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S. Even though we also received this honor back in 2012, we’re so proud to be recognized again for our growth and reputation as an innovator and leader in our industry. Primrose Schools is leading the way as the premier preschool provider in the country. We provide Franchise Owners with a solid business model and the support they need to succeed – connecting them with families, schools and communities to help children thrive.
It’s an exciting time to be a part of the Primrose Schools Team. We’re honored to receive these recognitions from the national business community and invite you to learn more about owning your own Primrose school franchise and how you might become a CEO of Happiness.
