ATLANTA, June 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Primrose Schools, a leading early education and care franchise, is seeking passionate, driven entrepreneurs at the International Franchise Expo (IFE) to help address high demand for high-quality child care in Boston, Philadelphia, New York and New Jersey. With more than 350 schools nationwide today, Primrose continues to experience significant growth, especially in the Northeast.
At IFE, taking place June 15–17 at the Javits Center in New York City, attendees can learn about Primrose franchising opportunities at booth #923 and talk with current Primrose Franchise Owners, who will also participate in two panels on June 16.
"Increasing demand for high-quality child care in the Northeast is driving our need to find more Primrose Franchise Owners in the region who are passionate about early education and want to grow with us," said Steve Clemente, president of Primrose Schools. "Our Franchise Team is looking forward to meeting business leaders at IFE who have a heart for serving children and families, regardless of their professional background. Current Primrose Franchise Owners will be speaking at the conference and will be available at our booth to talk to interested entrepreneurs about the franchise process and Primrose Schools."
Like many Primrose Franchise Owners, IFE panelist Allison P. Wilson-Maher began her journey with Primrose coming from a career unrelated to education. Wilson-Maher and her husband opened the first urban-model school in the Northeast, Primrose School of Center City Philadelphia, after seeing a need for quality early education within the city. With the help of the Primrose Schools Franchise Team, she learned the skills needed to run a preschool franchise.
"Coming from a background in commercial real estate, owning a school was a big change. But my husband I are committed to making a difference in our community, and opening our Primrose school helped us realize that dream. Every day we go to work knowing the decisions we make have immense value for our students and their families," said Wilson-Maher.
Primrose School of Center City Philadelphia mostly serves parents living and working downtown. Before opening her school, Wilson-Maher, also an urbanite, experienced the lack of high-quality care options firsthand when her own son was born. "If you want to change lives, Primrose can help you do that. We know many communities in the Boston area, New York and New Jersey need more high-quality early education and care options and will fall in love with the education that Primrose provides."
The child care franchising industry continues to expand. According to the latest Franchise Grade Report, children's services franchising is experiencing stronger growth than the franchise industry overall, and IBIS World states, child day care is a $48 billion industry and continues to grow. Primrose Schools continues to lead the early education industry, ranking no. 1 in the childcare category of Entrepreneur's 2017 Franchise 500.
