Kiddie Academy® Educational Child Care has once again been selected to Entrepreneur’s list of Top Franchises for Veterans. We rank #44 in 2020 and are the only educational child care company to make the list of 150 veteran-friendly franchisors.
The ranking reflects each company’s veteran incentive, how veteran franchisees are attracted to and supported by the company and how each company scored in Entrepreneur’s 2020 Franchise 500 ranking. Kiddie Academy is ranked #108 in the Franchise 500.
Our company is honored to serve those who serve our country. We are a long-time participant in the International Franchise Association’s strategic initiative, VetFran. The program is an option for United States citizens who are either currently serving in or who have been honorably discharged from the U.S. military. VetFran has a simple mission: To provide access and opportunities in franchising to veterans and their spouses. As a VetFran participant, Kiddie Academy offers qualified veterans a reduction of $25,000 on their initial franchising fee.
David Rost, an Army veteran who along with his wife Dana owns Kiddie Academy of Millersville, Maryland, said “As we weighed the decision to become a Franchisee with Kiddie Academy, we were impressed with the support shown for military veterans, making the decision even easier for us. With a long history as a service member and working in public service, it was important to us to find a way to give back to and improve our community and building a Kiddie Academy allowed us to do that just that.”
“I’m proud to see our company ranked on this list again,” said Kiddie Academy President Joshua Frick. “Even more so, I’m proud of our long tradition of showing appreciation to this well-deserving group of heroes by helping those who’ve served our country realize their business dreams. Veterans have the commitment and love of community that makes them a perfect match with our mission.”
