Kiddie Academy Moves Up on Franchise Gator’s “Fastest Growing” Rankings
Kiddie Academy® Educational Child Care moves up to #35 on this year’s Franchise Gator “Fastest Growing Franchises” rankings. The list ranks franchises experiencing massive growth for 2019. It’s a continuation of Kiddie Academy’s climb up the rankings. The company was #46 in 2018 and #62 in 2017. Franchise Gator also ranked Kiddie Academy #29 earlier this year on its “Top 100 Franchises of 2019” list.
Franchise Gator, a leading online franchise directory, has published the Fastest Growing Franchise ranking for the past six years. The ranking was created to help future franchise owners identify companies on the rise.
The “Fastest Growing” category spotlights brands experiencing rapid expansion coming into the new year. “Strong growth is one of many areas a prospective franchisee can look at when evaluating a franchise brand,” said Eric Bell, General Manager at Franchise Gator. “Total unit count is important as every franchise company’s mission is to increase their footprint as it makes the whole system much healthier.”
“It’s always a great feeling to be recognized in the franchise industry for the momentum and growth we’ve experienced over the last several years,” said Jeff Brazier, Kiddie Academy’s Vice President of Franchise Development. “It validates the quality of our brand and all the hard work our entire team has put into building our system.”
In 2018, Kiddie Academy saw 22 percent growth in system-wide revenue. The company now has 218 locations in 29 states and the District of Columbia. The education child care leader is expected to open an additional 40 new franchise locations across the United States by the end of 2019.
