Ayer, MA (PRWEB) December 27, 2011
The national educational toy store franchise Learning Express, winner of the 2011 Franchise Business Review Specialty Retail Category, announced the establishment of 16 new franchise stores in the last quarter of 2011. Currently, new demographic information indicates that franchise business opportunities exist in Seattle, Bellevue, Tacoma, and Spokane Washington.
“Our stores are truly neighborhood toy stores. Our businesses are growing and our success has been a community effort, “said Sharon DiMinico, founder and CEO of Learning Express Toys. According to DiMinico, unlike several big box retailers that have fallen victim to economic pressures and have been forced to close their doors, Learning Express toy stores continue to serve children in communities across the nation.
An example of Learning Express franchise national growth came with the announcement of the partnership with Universal Studios’ Partnerships & Licensing team to develop exclusive Curious George products. Partnerships like these help franchisees to stay on the leading edge of the toy industry. Exclusive products help Learning Express franchisees to differentiate themselves in an increasingly competitive marketplace. Giveaways and sweepstakes generate excitement with customers and storeowners alike. The Learning Express Home Office actively pursues opportunities like this to enrich our franchisees’ experiences, and help them to grow their businesses.
