Kiddie Academy “Fastest-Growing” Child Care Franchise

For the second-straight year, Kiddie Academy® Educational Child Care ranked tops among child care category in Entrepreneur’s 2021 Fastest-Growing Franchises rankings. In the worldwide rankings, our company ranks #101 on the list of 150 top franchisors in all industries. Among companies operating in the United States and Canada, we’re at #86, a jump of 14 spots from the previous year.

The list identifies the franchise brands with the greatest unit growth over the last year, based on the data submitted for the publication’s most recent Franchise 500®. The fastest-growing ranking is based on the net total new units (franchises and company-owned) added worldwide from July 2019 to July 2020, as verified by Entrepreneur magazine, with ties broken based on percentage growth. Versions of this ranking prior to 2021 were based on U.S. and Canada franchise units only.

“This ranking validates that despite the challenges of the past year, people looking to start businesses continue to see the educational child care industry, and our company in particular, as solid investments for their future,” said Kiddie Academy President Joshua Frick. “The fact that we not only held our own in this prestigious ranking, but actually improved our position year over year speaks volumes about the skills and dedication of the business professionals who kept their Academies running throughout the pandemic, as well as the hard work of our Franchise Development team and the rest of our incredible corporate support staff.”
