Celebree School Reaches an Amazing Growth Milestone…
Celebree School only began franchising their operation in March of 2019, after beginning with 26 corporately owned locations. In just two short years, the brand has awarded 50 new unit licenses, bringing the total amount of schools open or under development to 76! The 50th unit was sold in July of this year, and Celebree’s original Maryland and Delaware footprint now extends the entire length of the eastern United States.
CEO Richie Huffman dedicated an entire episode of Celebree School’s podcast series, Franchising in Focus with Richie Huffman, to this news. Entitled, “Celebree: 50 Franchises Sold In 2 Years”, Huffman highlights the success of the brand:
- It took over 25 years to develop and open the 26 corporately owned locations, but the brand doubled their presence through the franchising model in just two years
- Celebree’s support system and infrastructure was already in place, but the brand put together a stellar franchising group to spearhead rapid expansion of its locations
- Celebree put a premium on choosing the right locations by taking a scientific look at the best possible areas for scalable growth
An Essential Industry On The Rise
As we continue to transition into a post-Covid world, the demand for quality education is sharply rising. Now more than ever, parents are noting the importance of keeping children in a socialized environment—which leaves them free to protect and secure employment and the ability to provide. Over two-thirds of single-parent families and three-quarters of two-parent families are currently in this situation. What it means is that there’s an essential need to be met for this vast target market—a before and after-childcare solution.
