Kiddie Academy Ranked Again on Franchise Times and Entrepreneur Lists

Franchising News

Kiddie Academy® Educational Child Care opens 2019 with recognition on two prestigious franchise industry indexes.

For the third straight year, Kiddie Academy has been recognized on Franchise Times’ Fast & Serious list. Fast & Serious is the magazine’s ranking of its smartest-growing franchise brands. In the 2018 rankings, published Dec. 27, Kiddie Academy ranked 39th – the only franchisor of children’s learning centers to make the list.

The company has also been listed again in the Entrepreneur Franchise 500, a ranking of the top franchise systems in the world, coming in at #111. The Franchise 500 rankings are based on evaluations of companies’ costs and fees; size and growth; support; brand strength; and financial strength and stability.

“It’s a great honor to be named once again to both of these prestigious listings,” said Kiddie Academy President, Greg Helwig. “This recognition is a testament to the hard work and good decisions we all make every day in the operation of our business. Likewise, it validates the success and growth of our franchise community. Their enthusiasm for the brand; their use of our proprietary Life Essentials curriculum; and their belief in the positive impact we have on every child is the formula for continued success. I am so proud of our franchisee community for helping to achieve this distinct honor.”

These are just the latest in an impressive list of distinctions for Kiddie Academy in the past year. In October, the company was named to Franchise Times’ Top 200+. Kiddie Academy received the International Franchise Association’s annual award for “Best Marketing Campaign – Franchise to Consumer” for the success of our Storytime LIVE! campaign, and many franchisees’ Academies were honored with local awards.

“It’s exciting to repeatedly get recognized as an industry leading child care franchise,” said Kiddie Academy’s Vice President of Franchise Development, Jeff Brazier. “These last few years we’ve seen a lot of new Academies opening. These honors validate not only that we’re growing, but we’re growing in a way that’s smart and backed by great support from our corporate team. We’re looking forward to more great things in 2019!”
