Kiddie Academy recognized in Top 25 Franchises for Hispanics …Educational child care company selected in annual list by the World Franchising Network
BALTIMORE, MD – Kiddie Academy, a leading national franchisor of educational child care facilities, was just named in the 2011 Top 25 Franchises for Hispanics list compiled by the World Franchising Network (WFN) and published in PODER magazine.
According to WFN, the list is based on a rigorous analysis of several factors, including historical performance, brand identification, franchisee satisfaction, training, ongoing support and financial stability. Another important determinant is the percentage of existing franchises that are Hispanic-owned, as well as the number of Hispanics in the franchisor’s top levels of management.
“We are thrilled to be included in this list and value the opinion our franchisees have of us as the franchisor. Kiddie Academy looks for talent and potential when finding franchisees and Hispanics, or any other minority for that matter, are no exception. We are honored to be recognized as a company that supports minorities,” said Greg Helwig, chief operations officer of Kiddie Academy.
Kiddie Academy has received past recognitions by Entrepreneur magazine and AllBusiness.com for their success in the franchise industry.
