The annual index ranks the 500 largest franchise systems in the United States by systemwide sales, based on the previous year’s performance. In 2019, the company awarded 81 new franchise agreements, driving an increase in systemwide sales of 19.7%, to $367 million.

Kiddie Academy CEO Greg Helwig credits the company’s consistent climb in the rankings over the past several years to our overall strategy and the quality of the Franchisee network. “We’ve developed a team of dedicated, focused and collaborative businesspeople who have designed a growth plan that has us on a trajectory that’s aggressive, yet achievable and sustainable. We also have a select network of exceptional, highly motivated franchisees running successful Academies that make our brand stand out. I’m extremely proud of the contributions all of them make every day and the results are reflected in our year-to-year rise in these rankings.”
To date this year, the company has opened 20 new Academies and by year’s end will have secured more than 20 sites for future Academies. Currently, there are 266 Academies operating in 30 states and the District of Columbia.
