    Why Open a Childcare Franchise in Cleveland, OH?

    Cleveland has enjoyed an economic renaissance for the last 10 years. Growth has been particularly strong in downtown Cleveland, where several companies have relocated their corporate headquarters. This gives Northeast Ohio the second-largest concentration of corporate headquarter jobs in the U.S., making it great for franchise opportunities.

    The Greater Cleveland Metro Area comprises five counties – Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain and Medina. It ranks as the 33rd most populous metropolitan area in the United States.

    Employment in Cleveland has been rising at a rate higher than for the rest of the state. Employment growth has been driven by the professional business services and manufacturing sectors. Other top industries in the area include health services, government, education, transportation and utilities. Future job growth over the next 10 years is predicted to be 21.4%.

    Such growth presents the need for high-quality childcare in Cleveland and surrounding communities. Kiddie Academy daycare franchising not only gives you the opportunity to start your own business, but also the opportunity to bring value to your community.
