Kiddie Academy seeks expansion in the Chicago area

Nationally accredited child care franchise identifies growth opportunities in greater Chicago area.

The nationally recognized franchisor of education-based child care facilities, Kiddie Academy, has announced plans to continue expansion in the Chicagoland area. Kiddie Academy has more than 105 academies nationwide, including three open academies in the area and one under construction, and plans to open several locations in the next year. The company has identified sites in both Dupage and Will counties.

“We're experiencing strong franchise growth despite the economy, and Chicago is a very attractive market to expand upon. The interest in our business and delivering on our brand promise of high-quality child care continues to grow," said Greg Helwig, chief development officer for Kiddie Academy. “Our research has indicated that there is a definite need for education-based child care in the state of Illinois, which contributed to our plan to expand in the Chicago area," he added.
Kiddie Academy locations have an average revenue of $1,079,321 and average gross profit of $276,119.* These numbers are for mature franchised academies (open at least 18 months) that reported financial information for calendar year ended December 31, 2009.

The company is looking for professionals interested in opportunities to own an in-demand business, as well as give back to the community. Each new franchise location positively impacts the community by providing child care options, participating in philanthropic programs and creating over 20 new jobs.

Kiddie Academy serves families with children ages six weeks to 12 years old and offers a proprietary, developmentally appropriate curriculum that focuses on a child’s individual needs. The curriculum combines learning with fun to create “teachable moments” throughout the child’s day. The academies offer age-appropriate playgrounds, character education programs, family style dining and after school and summer camp programs.

Unique from many other franchise businesses, Kiddie Academy operates Monday through Friday during the day with no nights or weekends. Additionally, each academy is run by a qualified director who is required by state law to have a degree in education and certification in early childhood education, allowing franchise owners more flexibility with the daily operations.
